But to answer your question:
None. They're over-priced compared to other developer's wares. But there are a group of people over on Gearslutz that think they're the greatest thing since sliced bread. Say bad things about AA plugins there and you'll rue the day you made that comment. They do have interesting gui's though

Ya, I'm familiar with that group on gearslutz. Is it just the prices that turn you off the the Acqua line? I've only demoed a few of em, and I like what I've tried.. one example would be Ultramarine 4 (their Fairchild emu); it sounded great on the 2bus.They do absolutely murder the CPU, but I've read that it has alot to do with running the AAX versions on Pro Tools. I'm planning on installing Reaper soon so I can try the VST versions. They supposedly run pretty smooth on that setup.
