CD Sound Master announces the release of its ARQ Tride-N-Tru “A-Range” audio plug-in suite for Windows.
This collection is inspired by a rare and legendary vintage recording console, including an intricate and detailed emulation of the original circuitry, transformers, line and microphone preamps, and classic EQ.
CDSoundMaster, creator of the R2R Tape Collection, N-TEN-AT4, and other popular VST Plug-Ins, focuses on the absolute highest accuracy in sound of real analog hardware. Their software takes advantage of the modern computer’s ability to run audio software that uses higher cpu resources for complex realism.

Lars Rüetschi aka TheSessionGuitarist has announced the release of Grooving Tubing, a new tube guitar amp library featuring 17 programs for Acustica Audio’s Nebula.
This virtual amp doesn’t feel and sound like playing just an amp simulation. It feels and sounds like playing through a real amp reacting on your dynamic playing. Close your eyes and you feel the air between the microphones and your cabinet!
The amp was sampled with high quality Sommer Cables, the king of amp recording microphones: The Sennheiser e906 and the full and rich sounding Audio Technica 4050 as a spot microphone. Each of them sounds fantastic on its own. Copy your guitar track, mix and pan the 2 microphones and you’ll have a full, wide stereo guitar sound, larger than life!
Grooving Tubing is available for the introductory price of $24.90 USD until April 23rd, 2014 (regular $29.90 USD).

Cupwise FX has entered the Radio Junk effect plugin in the KVR Developer Challenge 2012.
Radio Junk is a small but unique suite of effects made from 2 junky old radios, one solid-state (from the 70s) and the other a tube radio (from the 50s). The radios were ‘sampled’ using technology similar but superior to the common convolution impulses out there. It’s called Nebula, and it can capture the sound of what’s being sampled at different dynamic levels, and it can also capture some of the distortion, unlike standard convolution.
These effects use a variant of the Nebula tech called ‘Acqua’, which just means that these are stand-alone effects, and you don’t need Nebula to load them (it’s built in, basically). The radios were sampled in extreme ways to get some nasty lo-fi effects.
Since these were made with the Nebula technology, they will sound different from other plug-ins out there.
Radio Junk is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in.

Gemini Audio has released its KultComp sample library for the Nebula 3 plug-in by Acustica Audio.
This library is based on a Modern German Tube Compressor which is loved by many for its versatility and outstanding audio quality with the musicality and user-friendliness that this company’s units stand for.
It finds its application in Mastering, Mixing and Recording. Discrete, very high performance gain cells were developed for this compressor and are used instead of the usual VCAs. This compressor is the first product to use them. They ensure the highest level of musicality and clarity in signal processing and demonstrate significantly improved distortion values over VCAs.
- Compressor/DeCompressor Library for Acustica Audio Nebula3.
- 96kHz / 44.1kHz.
- Includes Soft Knee Compression and combo programs (all ratios within one program with interpolation).
- Extended release times for all programs (up to 10 seconds instead of the original 2 seconds).
- Includes HQ versions of all programs (using the TIMED engine).
- Includes HP versions of all programs (internal high pass filter).
- Includes SC versions of all programs (for external side chain).
- includes NC versions of all programs (for Nebula Compressor, offers the best compression behavior).
- Total of 324 programs, 2.18 GB library size.
- Requires Nebula3, Nebula3 Pro or Nebula Server.
The KultComp library is available to purchase for the introductory price of 25 EUR through September 2012 (regular 32 EUR).
