REQ: Acustica Audio ACQUA Jam
Jam is more than just a collection of various analog saturation emulations. Keeping in mind the simple concept is that the sound of transistors, tubes, and pushed circuits has long been the key ingredient of high-quality analog recordings and is universally adopted by the vast majority of recording studios, our team has worked tirelessly to capture the true essence of the analog sound and encapsulate its inherent nuances in a suite that contains the largest collection of distortion units currently on the market.
To develop Jam, we conducted meticulous research and analysis of both vintage and modern hardware. We carefully selected equipment with the most distinct sound and unique character, whether used sparingly or pushed to the extreme. We then created highly precise emulations improving them with our second version of "Hyper" technology to ensure authenticity and the best sound possible.
To enhance your experience and facilitate your workflow, we also added some powerful controls, to help you unlock the full sonic potential of these models.
The Jam suite includes:
Jam (complete version)
Jam Mix (A lighter version without EQ and preamp sections.)
The suite is made up of two different GUIs to choose from:
Jam / Jam Mix: plugin versions based on a 3D ‘Acustica’s classic-style’ GUI.
Jam ‘Flat’ / Jam Mix ‘Flat’: plugin versions based on a 2D ‘modern-style’ GUI.
If you are an ‘analogue-lover’, you can work with Acustica’s classic style interface;
If you want to experience something never seen before here, choose the 2D modern interface (Jam flat / Jam Mix flat).
Each plug-in included in the Jam suite comes in a “Standard” version and an alternative “ZL*” version, which operates at *zero latency and is thus suitable for use when tracking, at the cost of extra processing resources. For further details consult the Indigo user's manual in the Overview section.
