ULTRAMARINE3

 

Acustica is delighted to present the new ULTRAMARINE3! The first mid-side stereo compressor based on CORE9!
It's a faithful emulation of an original vintage hardware designed in early 1950s and considered the most coveted of all compressors.
The purpose behind the creation of ULTRAMARINE3 was to "bridle" the sound of a rare machine, push far beyond the technological boundaries of the time and redesign it graphically making it more easy-to-use (hopefully!) in respect of old traditions.
This was quite a tough mission, but we are proud of the outcome!

Ultramarine is not like any plugin you have ever used, and after so much work and passion we have put into this, we at Acustica are very proud of this release.It's a very versatile tool to provide a lot of possibilities to shape the sound with gorgeous graphical user interface.

One of the exciting new features that is new to software is what we call “ShMod”. This is a shape control for the attack behavior of the compressor. It allows you to fine-tune the attack shape so you can really customize the attack behavior for any audio source!
Another innovative feature that also exponentially increases the versatility of this compressor is the continuosly variable (not just a fixed On-Off button) "Sc Filter" (Side-chain filter) .
In this way you may use a standard HP filtering to increase or decrease the bass content that hits the compressor. It can be a huge time-saver and provides many ways to quickly try some creative approaches to the music you are working with.
This plug-in is equipped with a DRY/WET control to determine the proportion of mix between the original (dry) and 'effected' (wet) signals.

COVER



Ultramarine3 is the first Acqua plugin based on CORE9, the revolutionary upgraded multithreading technology by Acustica.
It is an optimization of Core8 in terms of high performance allows to optimize performance of Acqua plug-ins.

Features actually supported in Core9:

  • Variable speeds on vector nodes improving the sound quality of the compressors and allowing to reach very fast speeds and precision.
  • Envelope followers based on control sources.
  • Queue messages used for several widgets like knobs improving the behaviour, control, and stability of plug-ins.
  • Hiddend components fault-tolerant inside nebula/acqua engine to minimized crash/bugs.
  • New wrapper to get better balanced AAX format
  • Several minor fixes and improvements (about trimming, sample rate conversion, distribution of sample rate packs, fixes on loaded program rate).
  • This engine is linked to Nat4 to allows the full automatic compressor sampling.
  • Switchmode optimization reducing CPU loading
  • Lazy loading pattern introduced to improve the loading of the objects

 

Key Features

Controls

OPERATION
  • LEFT-LAT/RIGHT-VERT input trim: this knob sets the input level from -24dB to +24dB, and is used to control the signal level inside the compressors and the preamplifier, the output level is than automatically compensated by the same amount of gain. At the first execution of the plug-in, input is set to ensure that you feed an appropriate level from the first stage of your signal path to the final one.
  • LEFT-LAT/RIGHT-VERT output gain: this knob sets the make-up gain of the compressor.
  • LEFT-LAT/RIGHT-VERT threshold: this knob sets the threshold of the compressor.
  • LEFT-LAT/RIGHT-VERT time constant: this knobs sets both attack and release with the last two position (5 - 6) that are Dual-Capacitor program dependent.
  • IN/GR/OUT: select whether the input, output or gain reduction is visualized by the meter.
  • LEFT RIGHT/LAT VERT: select the operational mode of Ultramarine, Stereo compressor or Mid(Lat)/Side(Vert) compression.
  • LEFT-LAT/RIGHT-VERT VU METER measure the input, output or gain reduction levels of the plug-in.
  • C-LINK: link the control of the two channels Left/Right or Mid/Side, the channels are compressed individually but you can control both side using one of the couple of specular knobs.
  • PRE BUTTON: the power button enables (lamp ON) or bypasses (lamp OFF) the preamp stage of Ultramarine
  • SC-FILTER: another innovative feature that also exponentially increases the versatility of this compressor is the continuosly variable (not just a fixed On-Off button) Side-chain filter.
    In this way you may use a standard HP filtering to increase or decrease the bass content that hits the compressor. It can be a huge time-saver and provides many ways to quickly try some creative approaches to the music you are working with.
  • SH MODE: this is the shape modulation of the attack envelope. The 2 is the "normal" attack of the plug-in. You can go down till 0 decreasing the attack time. On the other side you can reach position 3, the highest one.
    The shape changes dramatically, it increases the attack time of the compressor.
  • DRY/WET control: to determine the proportion of mix between the original (dry) and 'effected' (wet) signals. Here you'll find it as a very powerful feature, and very simple to use, as well.
