Designed and tested in the UK, our Tokyo 2 Tube EQ plugin combines modern advances in highly technical software production with rigorous testing to bring you the ultimate ITB professional music production tools. The Tokyo Tube EQ plugin is inspired by a rare parametric tube equaliser, carefully refurbished and sampled for historical accuracy, designed to bring beautifully warm vintage colour to your tracks.
The Tokyo 2 Tube EQ plugin’s reference unit is a beautifully crafted boutique piece of gear from the mid-‘90’s, made by a well-respected former Italian manufacturer of awesome pro-audio products. The original unit features a tube mic/line/acoustic preamp and four tube equalisation bands – two shelves and two fully parametric eq bands.
Tokyo Tube EQ is an official third-party plugin for N4 Player

Better, more accurate phase distortion.
UI with written Frequency and Volume values, due to popular demand.
New resampled (second unit) preamp with the same technique of Brighton.
Now with full 44, 48, 96 native pack and better SRC.
Overall CPU usage improvement.
Redefined knob resolution and progression for a better usability.
The TRIM knob now doesn’t crackle anymore if turned at full scale.
The demos below are focused mainly on subtle usage of TOKYO EQ settings, to show how it’s similar to an hardware for the details. Of course the equaliser is also capable of heavier intervention on the treated sound. Please, feel free to try yourself the 4 weeks fully-working trial demo.
TOKYO EQ is available as a trial version for 1 month. You can download the trial version for free from Acustica Audio’s marketplace. You will need to create an account to access the download, totally safe, we’ve tried it and it didn’t hurt one bit.
Hope you like it!
How to Install and use
ACQUA LIBRARIES FOR N4
An Acqua library is similar to a Nebula library but it is built by merging several emulation presets into a single one, resulting in a more complex simulation with a custom user interface.
It’s exactly like a standalone Acqua plugin but it needs N4/N4 Player framework to run properly.
In this way you will have always the latest updated Acqua engine for all of your Third Party Plugins.
Trough AQUARIUS, in the left tab “Purchased”, locate the N4 Player multi-effect plug-in, then click “install” TIP: Please, mind that you can install in your system just ONE of N4 OR N4 Player. The two softwares cannot coexist together.
Always through AQUARIUS, in the same way, locate and install your LONDON ACOUSTICS plugin (in default it will be installed in the Nebula4temprepository folder) TIP: Any N4 ACQUA plugin needs N4 or N4 Player framework to run properly, they are not intended to be standalone plugins.
From your sequencer you can now start to load N4 Player as the other common FX plugins, in every insert or send slot (VST, VST3, AU, AAX)
In N4 Player you can find then your LONDON ACOUSTICS N4 ACQUA plugin to load.
