N4 Player is a free multi-effect plug-in able to emulate a wide range of audio equipment and other electrical, digital or acoustic audio systems, providing a true sonic alternative to costly and bulky hardware and opening new paths to creative uses and highly realistic sounds.

Nebula libraries for N4:
A Nebula library is a collection of emulation presets created with the proprietary sampling application NAT. A Nebula library for N4 can include a custom skin or use factory generic skin.

Acqua libraries for N4:
An Acqua library is similar to a Nebula library but it is built by merging several emulations presets into a single one, resulting in a more complex simulation with a custom user interface.

Acqua Effect plug-ins:
Acqua Effect plug-ins are standard standalone plug-ins in VST, AAX, and AU format. However, they can also be loaded in N4 to take advantage of some additional functions. For example, an Acqua Effect plug-in can be hosted into N4 allowing customers to run the Acqua Effect plug-in in a TCP/IP network using Nebula Server (currently in development).
