- are all these 'bugs' being fixed meaning a significant update to the nebula engine and NAT to make compressors any better than they have been?
are these new compressors going to be any technically better/more accurate than the FATE and SNAP compressors we already have?
while i think SNAP and FATE are good, its been obvious that they have been more of a 'beta test' with many floors. just read the fate comp manual and analogue in the box say this themselves. all the 'workarounds' mentioned.
are we *now* almost ready for full on nebula compressor sampling?!
Have you ever worked with Fate or are you basing this on the manual?
While your complaints might apply to the workflow of current Nebula compressors none of them sound half-assed. In fact Fate is probably the best sounding software compression I've ever used <period>.
Incidentally there are more than just the two from Analog in the Box, there have been some Purple 1176 programs, a FET [which I haven't had a chance to try yet], the VariMu...and probably others that have slipped my mind). Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see the workflow on Neb compressors improve but they're quite usable right now (the disadvantage now being that we have very few flavors to choose from as them templates are still beta or third party or being debugged or whatever the precise details are).
I own all but 1 of Alex's Nebula libraries and this news is exciting to me. There are some other great libraries out there (AITB, CDSM, Rhythminmind) and I have quite a few, but in my opinion Alex's are the best sounding and most versatile. Can't wait for this!!
