This library is now available in 4 sample rates- 44.1khz, 48khz, 88.2khz, and 96khz.

A recent skin update now allows for switching between the lite, full, SHQ programs by clicking the buttons on the skin, for the Nebula 4 version. This was previously only possible with the N3 skins. Having that ability really completes this compressor and makes using and switching between the quality options a breeze.

'Based on' a compressor design with a revered ancestry, and very strong ties to one of the most popular current compressors out there (typically viewed as a bus comp but equally good in mixes and for mastering), these programs are super versatile and can provide tone/compression characteristics from 'vintage' to 'modern' and anything in between. Fully adjustable attack control, from fast, almost instant (can be instant with a tiny bit of look-ahead), to pretty slow 200+ ms attacks (which the hardware can't do), which I personally almost never use but they're there! I put extra effort into getting the attack shape just right, using some really hacky methods with Nebula's programming to achieve attacks that are like what the hardware does.

There are separate hard and soft knee programs, as well as a bonus set of 'variable knee' programs which include a control that allows you to transition between hard and soft. These variable knee programs use more CPU than the others though, and should be considered a bonus (the stand alone hard and soft knee programs are the main product).

You also get programs (for all knees) using feedback or feedforward detection modes, and 50/50 versions using a bit of both. The many possible combinations of detection modes and knee shapes allow you to get results from 'vintage' to 'modern', and in between, for a huge range of possibilities.

All these demos start with the dry clip, then it repeats having been compressed with various different settings and combinations of hard/soft knee and feedback or feedforward (or 50/50) detection. You should really get the demo program and try it out yourself on different material.

Here's a vocal.

Next is a drum bus.

Some kind of hand drums (bongos?):

A sax mix:
