Barron is right, the AlexB programs haven't been patched with the inbuild hpf. I did patch the compressors from the other 3rd party devs a couple of weeks ago, which Giancarlo already uploaded here. If I understand correctly Alex is going to implement it in another way, like he has done with the german mastering dynamics bass cut programs.
Now that the patch has come out, you can patch the high pass filter in your AlexB programs yourself. Also if you couldn't use the AITB patched programs due to the new copyright protection, you should be able to patch them yourself. It's pretty easy, with NAT you can patch multiple programs at once as Giancarlo posted here.
Also the pre-amp patch is wonderful! Being able to drive the input whilst the output is compensated makes it so much easier to hit the program at the right level. Definitely worth setting up. Don't forget to back-up your programs, like the big G says!
Maybe I am just Nat-illiterate, but I consider myself intelligent..... but I have no clue how to apply these patches myself. And yes, I read Giancarlos post about it. I am still waiting for a clear tutorial.....
It was my first time using NAT as well. It's realy as easy as dragging the programs you want patched and pushing the patch button. Before doing a whole bunch simultaneously, Giancarlo recommends to try one program of a library first. The first step would be to make a test program. You'll have to fire up Nebula and select a preset of the library you want patched. In the MAST page change both the preset name and the file name! (click on the name with the mouse and you can type, the file name is a couple of lines below the name on the same page). After renaming the preset, a 'save as' box will appear. Press that . Now you're ready to patch this new preset in NAT. After confirming it works, you can delete the test preset. Then it's back to NAT, select the programs you want patched from the library, and patch them all at once (or, if you want keep the unpatched programs, you'll have to rename all of the programs you want patched, and patch those, this is a lot more work of course). Done!, repeat these steps for all your libraries and don't forget to backup all your n2p files first!

Sounds easy enough. But after I rename and save, how do I apply the patch? Do I drag the patch file Giancarlo uploaded into Nat too? I just don't understand what to do with the 2 patches Giancarlo supplied. I understand the rest, so thanks! I just need to know what to actually do with the patches he supplied us.
