Very interesting about Caribou - I'll have to look into that eventually.
Since starting this thread, I settled into using AlexB's 4K comp and liked it. But now I am completely sold on Pink 2412 as the most amazing busscomp I could ask for. The tone and harmonics plus flexibility make it the comp of my dreams currently. Just one man's opinion!
Loving Pink 2412, it's a powerhouse for sure, but still use FENIX on some mixbus duties as i love the tone and just have it very mild at -1 or 2 dbs..........
Special mention must also go to the Cal DL1656 Limiter v2 by Tim Petherick which is a robust and solid limiter and so fast, and seems to suit the mix buss perfectly. A very underrated limiter in my honest opinion.
i really love the Alex G comp on master with fast release and slow attack it really add some nice glue and punch using only 1-2 db compression
i have been using algo G comps for years and always used slow attack for master with them and the Glue turned out to be the best one, its kind of funny because the Glue is the only one who dont try to model the HW sound, only the behaviour and its the best algo G comp i tried hehe but Alex B replaced all the algos G comps i have been using easy with his G comp for me on the mixbus
i cant make it to really smack for parallel drum compression though but i have other tools for that
im gonna try the new pink comp single band and see how that goes for smacking some drums in parallel it sure is crazy good on drums and guitars
im also gonna try the pink 3 band tomorrow on master i think tomorrow is the day for the 3 band full version release
i have read so much great about the Fenix Red now that i have to buy it very soon hehe if it don't fit for rock no problem, i do acoustic music too where i personally like flucti and C660 in combo over the G comp
i tend to grab the Alex G comp for rock and country rock i have yet to be disappointed for that kind of music style with this comp
i have actually not tried the sum 100a on master yet because it was really to heavy for my CPU on my mac mini and im been very busy making many many nebula setups lately one instance of sum 100a took 33% of my CPU lol so i always had to freeze it when i used it on tracks, and i have to use consoles too so even after all the freezing there was no room for the Sum 100a on mixbus, had to have some nebula reverbs in there too of course hehe i couldnt freeze it on the mixbuss thats just wrong lol, but now with the 5820k its gonna be a different story
any good folks in here who really like the sum 100a on the Mixbuss ? and what music style do you like to use it with on mixbus ?
we are so lucky AA exist with Acquas and nebula, what a wonderful tech they invented and it just keeps getting better
and the 3rd party devs really makes crazy good sounding tools for nebula
i really cant live without Nebula but i absolutely cant live without the Acquas either my wallet is doomed haha
but these tools dont become useless like many algos in the past where the new thing always replaced the last eq or comp you bought
every Acqua or nebula lib i have bought is an investment for life the way i see it
well talk about rambling on , sorry, im just so happy about these tools i couldn't help my self
