There are different types of presets available with the Acqua Effect plug-ins.

1. No presets available:

2. Standard presets:

The standard presets are in the left plug-in zone. The standard preset are static presets that do not interact with the sound program available and the audio track.

3. Artificial intelligence (AI) presets:

We gave an artificial intelligence (AI) prototype plug-in to a group of selected audio engineers and they processed the audio with this prototype by modifying the parameters at regular intervals. The prototype plug-in will generate a log file, and fill a special AI folder with information like the incoming audio attributes (frequency response, phase, loudness, etc.), and each plug-in parameter value, the modification(s) lapse, etc.
To apply an AI preset, the end-user, should play the audio program and plug-in will capture the audio information, then the user should select the AI preset that wants to use. The plug-in will apply the settings on the plug-in parameters according to the incoming audio and the information acquired with AI (artificial intelligence).

If you find problems with the Acqua Effect plug-in preset, we recommend first to uninstall the product and reinstall it using always the latest version of Aquarius.

Note: when AI presets are present, the standard preset will be not available.



4. AAX format presets:

5. Custom N4 presets:
