very nice sounding!
glue is the right word, brings things together.
tetsted it on liverecordings from a medium percussionensemble.
it reduces the depth of the room a bit, in a good way. doesn't react too fast on peaks, very nice.
tried with some bassheavy stuff, doesn't overreact on deep frequencies.
has a little boost on high frequencies, gives a lively feeling to the recording.
this will sit on my masterbuss very well :D

nothing wrong so far. seems to be a good buy, so bring it out :lol:

As much as I'd love the full release yesterday, I'd love to hear what it sounds like when you are completely happy with it. We are really close to the updates that will offer even more compression/distortion realism I think.

If you were to release an initial (program/s which sound the best that you've sampled so far)full program now and the follow up when it was totally ready later, that would be pretty incredible. I have no idea how much work that would be, however.

Thanks for the beta. ;)

Ok ,

I will say again , I'm not getting any gain reduction until I get to about -35db on the threshold .

I tried the 165a and the drawmer and the reduction seems to be correct.

I'm I the only one!?

No the threshold doesn't really work for me either well, it does a little. too much when all the way engaged. The gain reduction meter doesn't work for me either, it always says 7.XX no matter what the input or threshold. Getting some of the flavor and I like it, but can't imagine it's the full flavor at 2megabytes. This one is going to be sweet!

I just done some mastering with cdsoundmasters geq and this and the limiter .Although shaky, because its way to heavy to the point where it starts to limit at about -35db.It was like the icing on the cake!!


I think we are starting to hit mastering grade ,DID I JUST SAY THAT? :P

First thanks for the Beta.
It's the first Vari-Mu we have in the Nebula 3rd party libraries so far, so that's a useful addition for sure.

I never work with the real hardware so I can't say how "dead on" it is. But it sounds good for sure.I've found the same characteristics that "his lil' brother" VM-Tube flavor-wise.A freakin' "polisher", I can understand why mastering engineer love it...

As for dynamics, the beta options are so limited that it's hard to judge. But it's like finger food, this one is a great teaser.

It's seems that the original piece of hardware as a good amount of tweaking possibilities (+ yours have the HPF sidechain mod), so I can understand that it's a pain in the $#@ss to sample...

So for me, so far so "really" good.Again,based on my ears, not gain reduction meters or graphs.Make it a priority Eric.Go ahead.

PS: Maybe it's wise to take a look at the original unit "on paper" (old or new units) to get what the developers are "working with"... and ... use your ears...really...

Thanks for the Beta Version Eric!

The sound seems to be more focused & controlled, and clearer.

It makes my mix sound better/smooth.

I really wonna hear what the hardware does to the sound though.

See ya!
