Rayphlex 661x2 Nebula compressor programs
      #1009776 - 24/09/12 08:30 AM
This is a new set of compressors I've made for Nebula. Nebula compressors have had a reputation for not really being too reliable for their compression abilities, and many people just use them for their tone and use a separate VST for compression. I think this set of comps should change that. They are based on very transparent hardware but the results still sound like analog compression. You can even limit with some of them and it's still fairly transparent, but smooth.

If you don't know what Nebula is, and are one of those people who like 'analog simulation' type stuff, you SHOULD know what Nebula is. It compares with UAD stuff as far as the sound quality. It's kind of an 'open' development platform so anyone can make stuff for it, and there are a few core groups who are making top quality stuff. You can see what kind of other stuff is available, and check out the Nebula thing in general, here:

Nice one Tim!

I look forward to trying these out, and hope that you've managed to achieve the Holy Grail of Nebula compression

I've just made a few updates.

a) now there is a free demo version available that will work with any free Nebula. the community version is the better of the two, so if you already have it, you don't need the demo version. the demo version is still good for showing the compression.
grab it here

b) i've added some things to the set. such as duplicate programs for external side-chain input, some of the programs now have a dry % control that you can use to add dry signal back in (which works well because the phase matches nicely), and some of them now have an 'ahead' control which is already usually in most comp programs but i took it out to make room for other stuff and because i never thought ahead was useful. later i saw that it could be used for limiting, so now i've added it back in, for a few progs.

if you have the set you can grab the 44kHz update pack here
and the 96kHz update pack here.

one other thing, if anyone bought the 44k version of the set, make sure that that's what you got. some people were getting the 96k version instead. if this happened to you, contact me.

You never stop attempting to improve your products do you Tim?

well, i do think there is always room for improvement.
the update was really quite small and simple to make, just added some new 'presets' basically. there will probably be another before too long.
so how have you been? keeping busy in the audio world, i imagine?

I concur that this is one fine addition to the nebula compressor family. Well worth a demo if you haven't tried it.
