Handcrafted Acqua/Nebula Libraries

SoundDrops

There are many different ways to emulate in the digital domain the sonic behavior of an analogue audio processor. By general consensus, Acustica’s proprietary V.V.K.T. (Vectorial Volterra Kernels Technology) is one of the most succesful technologies for this challenging task.

SoundDrops develops N4 / N4Player libraries taking advantage of this groundbreaking technology, with a view to creating musical tools that combine the convenience of the digital workflow with the engaging warmth of the analogue sound.

 

Featured Plug-ins

KENT GUITAR AMP SUITE

KENT GUITAR AMP SUITE, the latest Acqua library for N4 by SoundDrops, was sampled from a wonderful vintage ‘AC’ 30W model paired with a 2×12” cabinet equipped with Blue Celestions. Enjoy its unique chimey and warm crunch tone in this faithful digital reproduction.

SURREY GUITAR AMP SUITE

Based on a wonderful vintage ‘Custom 50’ paired with a 4×12” cabinet, both built in the early ‘70s, the SURREY GUITAR AMP SUITE of Acqua libraries for N4 by SoundDrops is bound to surprise you with its lifelike depth, its warm yet snappy tone.

MANTIS 2 PWM COMPRESSOR

MANTIS 2 PWM COMPRESSOR BUNDLE is a suite of four plug-ins based on a smooth and musical PWM compressor, originally designed and built with this specific library in mind. This suite includes also 2 two-band versions of the compressor with adjustable cross-over point, and each plug-in is supplemented by a versatile pre-amp and clipper section for added harmonic color, if needed.
