A little audio test with the very 1st beta of the Classic Logic Dynamic : the console mixbuss compressor. The compressor is taken from the console, not the racked unit which sounds different but the "real" thing. The difficulties are to isolate electrically the circuit and to match it with the converters in the right way. I have compared the CLD with two good sounding S*L BussComp plugins.
First impression is that there is not big difference between your program and say the Glue. I thought I could hear some "improvement" in your program but not really sure yet. I have to listen to the files some more and on better equipment. Regards.
Thanks for showing us the test. My favorite for this test is the CLD MB Punch, feel that the signal gets wider,open and clear punch. The least favorite is definitely the Waves. The Glue did a good job to be a normal plugin.
Alex, very cool! The 'Punch' and 'Open' mix open up the whole stereo-image, and does exactly what I wanted to hear; glue and depth! The 'Glue' mix doesn't clutter the stereo-image, glues a bit, but doesn't give the depth. The 'Waves' mix cluttered the stereo-image and sounds boringly flat.

- that's VERY funny - Must have been painful to be urged to sample a compressor then, no ? Just joking.
I liked the original the best, all the compressors didn't really add anything musically relevant - they didn't hurt either, though. Sure, nebula is without a doubt the only 3D one, but we all know that - let's hear what happens in Andy-Wallace-mode ! (4:1, automatic/slow release, 4-6 dB GR, punchy mid-slow attack)
