Acustica Audio has announced its new Sand 3, a plugin suite which reproduces the sonic behavior of a series of high-end British consoles which literally dominated the Pop and Rock scene from the ’80s onward.

Sound engineers from all over the world swear by their forward, slightly ‘aggressive’ sound as well as their logical layout.

In addition to a fully replicated channel strip, SAND3 includes 3 EQ modules, a compressor inspired by 3 different British units, and a preamp module, for a total of 6 plugins.

Last but not least, SAND3 packs the experience of 7 renowned engineers, who have been directly involved in the development of dedicated AI presets, ready for use.

The plugin suite is available in VST, AU and AAX formats, at an early access intro price of 59 EUR. The regular price is 199 EUR.
