Acustica Audio Cola 2 2023 [WIN]

Cola is an emulation of a rare vintage British console from 1972, which was used to shape the immortal sounds of iconic albums by AC/DC, Queen, Clash, the Sex Pistols, and more. Our plugin perfectly captures the essence and behavior of this analog beast: a fully discrete, class-A console with mastering-grade inductor EQ’s on each channel, characterized by smooth, airy sound with big, solid bass.

Cola 2 C-228

The Cola 2 C-228 Vintage EQ plugin is a faithful emulation of one of the best desks manufactured by a celebrated British company. Founded in 1968, for decades their name was synonymous with excellence in the worlds of recording, touring, and theater.

Cola 2 C-415

The C-415 was inspired by a British valve mic-amp/mixer from the 1950 and 60s that was regularly used by producer Joe Meek, to which we have added an entire, authentic collection of vintage preamps, an accurate end-to-end circuit emulation of the bass, and mid and treble EQ sections. We took our inspiration from its bigger brother, the 4M/15W model. These units have gained something of a cult status in the vintage recording geat world, as they hey were used on countless legendary records from the 50s and 60s, as well as on notable film productions.

Cola 2 C-1671

Cola 2 C-1671 is a 9-band graphic EQ based on a rare discrete germanium equalizer introduced in the UK in the early 1960s. This high-quality solid-state device employed germanium transistors, and even came with a remote controller. The machine was an integral part of the outboard setup of many recording studios in the 60s and 70s and was used to help shape the sound of many iconic musical productions. As engineer Neil Kernon (Elton John, David Bowie, Yes) recalls: “We had racks of these EQs back in the day!”

Cola 2 C-505

Cola 2 C-505 is a versatile limiter/compressor that provides the distinctive controls typical or original British discrete transistor hardware, which is well-known for adding punch on single tracks and buses. The hardware for this compressor is incredibly rare. In fact, we suspect that only 4 were ever created, and these were custom-built for the historic PYE Recording Studio in London. It features Marinair transformers for the inputs and outputs, an S7C transformer, a mix of discrete class-A transistors, and some of the first Opamps ever developed. Like the hardware that inspire it, this plugin is a monster on drums.
