Upgrade Later Without Penalty

Upgrade from any plugin to the more advanced equivalent within six months of your original purchase without having to pay twice. Simply get in touch with us and we will send you a coupon to use for the original value of your purchase (before VAT) on the more advanced version.

For example, you needed a first order compressor so bought the a1Compressor. Now you are working on a third order project and need the a3Compressor. We send you a coupon to apply your discount and in the end you have only paid the total amount it would have cost to purchase the a3Compressor in the first place. How fair is that?

Automatic Order Detection

Higher Order Ambisonics requires a lots of channels – seventh order needs a whopping 64 for each track! But what if you’re working with a first order recorded microphone signal and you don’t need all those channels?

With that in mind, the a3 and a7 Plugin Suites contain Automatic Order Detection which analyses the incoming signal to determine the Ambisonics order and adapts to the order, keeping CPU use as low as possible.

Try Before You Buy

You can download demo versions of all plugins to test with your system and DAW before you buy to make sure your system is compatible.
