Acustica Audio has just introduced its new Nickel suite of plugins, all of which emulate rare rack units from the late ’60s to the present day. The Nickel Suite includes:
- Nickel Stereo EQ – A Stereo 4-band fully-parametric EQ with High and Low-pass Filters derived from historic US-made unit from the 60s-70s
- Nickel Mono EQ – A Mono 4-band fully-parametric EQ derived from the Stereo EQ
- Nickel Compressor – A legendary ’60s FET compressor, featuring two switchable emulations (rev H, rev LN) with included relative preamp emulations.
- Nickel Preamps – Four Line Preamps, four Mic Preamps, four SH1 (Shape mode 1) preamps, four SH2 (Shape mode 2) preamps from a modern Precision Microphone Preamplifier with Class-A discrete electronics, and four Custom Preamps for a total of twenty preamp emulations. It also includes a fixed High-pass Filter (100Hz, 6dB/octave), a phase reverse button plus an Oversampling button to change the oversampling-rate (8x, 16x) to improve the quality of the processing increasing the sampling frequency of the preamp.
The suite is available here for €109 (about $123).
