Hi babiuk, for this task Bidule works as an "intelligent frequency calculator" because we have to remap every range of frequencies related to a single Nebula knob. Bidule (or any other similar plugin) is necessary to reach the goal. Of course we could map directly the Mequalizer plugin but the frequency graph will not represent the reality...

Mmmmmmh, at a first look it's not so simple to implement... Attack and release on the Mcompressor are scaled in different granularities: .001 steps from 0 to 0.1ms; .01 steps from 0.1 to 1ms; .1 steps from 1 to 10ms; 1 steps from 10 to 1000, all with "holes". Furthermore many Nebula compressors have programs with fixed ratio so we should load all the ratio programs and program a bypass change related to the Mcompressor ratio knob...
If, on the other side, you don't care about exact parameters, probably you can go without Bidule and link directly Mcompressor to Nebula through Reaper parameter modulation.

If Cubase has a "Reaper like" parameter modulation function, yes... But I really don't know
Hmmm, right, the compressor setup seems a little tricky!
I have done a quick search regarding this regarding Cubase, but it seems like the 'parameter modulation'-feature of Reaper is way more powerful than what you can do in Cubase. Unfortunately. But I haven't digged deep to really check if this is possible in Cubase.
Any Cubase users here who know anything about this? I rather stick to one DAW if I can
Ciao Vernon, as you already know, I was really impressed by your work, so much that I followed you in this. Thanks a lot for sharing! I feel I owe to share my experimentations too, for anyone of you guys who’s interested, these are some Youtube videos I did on this subject:
- Video Tutorial for getting started (mainly without Bidule plugin): Video - Some aplications i did using Bidule: Video Playlist (4 videos)
I’m very interested in other people’s works and opinions about this technique (I know this is an old topic, has something different been experimented meanwhile?)
Thank you again for sharing your work, Vernon!
