Acustica Audio Jade 2 2023-R2R screenshot

Jade 2 is composed of 6 different hardware units merged into 3 EQ emulations, 2 dynamics processors, and a completely new preamplifier section.

Magic In the “Air”
Jade 2 could easily be considered one of the most versatile plugin suites we’ve ever created. Not only does it deliver a deep, warm, sophisticated sound, it’s also the ultimate choice for adding a touch of top-end sheen to your tracks. Jade adds light and “air” and to any source (even reverbs!), during both mixing and mastering.

Jade 2 EQ: 3 selectable equalizers for ultimate tone shaping.
Model A is derived from an American hardware unit famous for its ultrahigh-frequency band. The original unit is characterized by a maximum positive gain excursion of +10dB for each frequency. Our emulation includes the corresponding
-10dB negative range for each frequency, in order to offer extended versatility.

Model B is based on a powerful unit introduced on the market in 1994 and built in the UK.

Model C is a hybrid equalizer, merging 2 different equalizers (C1 and C2) into a single processor.

Comp/Limiter
Jade 2 is equipped with two dynamics processors: a discrete Class-A compressor (D) and a peak limiter (E). The main idea behind the original unit is to provide a transparent, musical control of dynamics.

These emulations can be activated and used individually (C/D) or simultaneously (C + D). If both emulations are used at the same time, their behavior is in series, so the limiter module will follow that of the compressor. The behavior and the sound of these dynamic processors may vary based on Jade's dynamic routing control in the channel strip version.

Note: Jade 2’s compressor follows the improvements that have been made on all of Acustica’s latest compressors. The overflow problem that could occur when input signal levels were too high has been resolved, and it is now possible to act on the input trim even with signals close to 0dB. The compression curve has also been extended to allow compression of very low signals.

Jade 2 Preamp
Jade 2's standalone preamp section includes a faithful emulation of a unique, Class-A mic preamplifier/mixer for recording engineers who want a highly flexible audio path without compromising on the sound quality sound.

5 preamp models (A, B, C1, C2, D) are included in the Jade channel-strip, as well as in the Jade 2 preamp (under the “custom” bank/category). They are based on a collection of var­ious top-quality hardware units, whose harmonic content and frequency response are readily available for use on your tracks.

The preamp section also includes several preamp emulations divided into six banks (Line, Mic, Fat, Tape, Bus, Cust) plus unique high-pass and low-pass filters. You’ll be amazed at the endless variety of distinct palette of tones Jade has to offer for your mix.

Sample rate: 44.1 & 96KHz only (no 48 or 88.2 support)

I tested with a 48Khz file and the responses with Bertom eq curve seem to be correct

If you have Reaper you can do this simple test @ 48kHz. Cant do it with Bluecat Patchworx.

Load the JADE2 or JADE2EQ, don't do anything on the plugin, and straight turn on the Delta Solo mode (alt+click the Mix knob on FX windows). Play the track. you'll hear some noise, it depends on the track but you'll hear something.

OK now FX instance OS 2X the plugin and do it again. You'll hear nothing. SIlence. Meaning no processing is happening and the plugin is doing nothing, everything is flat and the delta should cancel each other out, proof of no processing happening.

why you hear that noise without oversampling earlier ? that's artifact of running at wrong sample rate, meaning plugin already adding something without you even doing anything on it. It's the filtering fups at the high end.

Hope it can help you make a decision. Cheers.
It makes no sense to say you’re not good at it. It’s like saying, “I’m not good at being a monk.” You are either living as a monk or you’re not.

A series of several EQs rather interesting and quite transparent overall, the work works very clear and brilliant without being too scintillating in the very high frequencies, the sub on the other hand is dense but odd as a sensation one can suffocate under steroid, I don't I particularly don't like the channelstrip compressor and the limiter is interesting I think in certain cases but seems more tedious to use than a pro-L2, Special mention for the 40k banxadall eq.

Love the color of certain preamp , in custom specially of the tape preamp plugin averagely other sections

Jade is really nice. includes an emulation of Maag audio eq. Famous air band. Very sweet on vocals, or anything that needs a little air. Easy to overdo it though, so be sure not to crank that knob too much!

as no one mentioned
'AL' 'Adaptive Latency' technology can reduce plugin latency and resource consumption depending on the number of sections used.

Is it me or does the EQ presets not work?

If you watch closely some of them only switch off the LPF hahaha which means maybe they forgot to save them ???

[right]For the first time, in the Jade2 suite, we included an
alternative version of the channel strip called Jade2
‘AL’.. ‘Adaptive Latency’ technology can reduce plugin latency and resource consumption depending
on the number of sections used.
EXAMPLE: If you only use the Jade2 channel-strip
equalization module, bypassing the compressor
section, you will experience a lower latency. Thanks
to this NEW plugin approach, you will be able to optimize the use of your resources without sacrificing
the distinctive quality of Acustica products
