Acustica describes Celestial as a plug-in for creative sound design that features texturizing and psycho-acoustic effects among other nice things like eq, dynamics and filtering. The plug-in is based on a UK-manufactured piece of hardware that’s in use by mixing and mastering engineers as a character processor.
The Texture Mic Processor features a Teal Staging control for its drive and harmonic saturation section. Other interesting additions are an eliptical stereo filter with dimension control, a crossover filter for the compressor in which only a higher portion of the spectrum is affected, and a preamp emulation with output transformer for additional saturation. The rest of the plug-in is perhaps better described in the following video:
Celestial is free until February 14, 2020. You can grab this Christmas freebie through Acustica’s Aquarius plug-in manager. An excellent gift from the enterprising Italian company that’s sure to give your tunes some warm analog goodness in these cold winter times.
Additionally, Acustica is taking 50% off most of its well-revered Aqua plug-ins and 35% off third-party libraries for Nebula 4. The offer lasts until January 7, 2020.
