Bought it installed it and put it on the Mix buss pulled the threshold right down to hear what was going on then brought the threshold back up and set the attack and release and sh** my pants.This thing is audio gold so smooth and cohesive just what I like.

Great work thank you

hello, just bought it, to use in a session. sounds nice so far, but i would like to know if the ratio knob doesn't work at all? it's always at '1'.. is this a bug or you haven't modelled the ratio change behaviour?

thanks in advance, K.xxx

I don't claim to be an expert when it comes to compressors, but this sounds great to me.

Yes the ratio is set. The hardware captured doesn't have a variable ratio. The amount of compression is based on input level & threshold.

This (great) Nebula Patch makes me want the real thing even more now.

Rhythminmind, out of interest have you ever heard a Thermionic Phoenix in comparison to the Varis?

Yes before picking up the Varis I did a tube comp shootout between that, the Inward Connections Vac Rac TSL-3, ADL "something", M****y slam & V-mu, & Pendulum.

I'd take them all if I could but the Varis had the best sound & feature set to my ears. Simple interface, but unlocks all the features that most of the others force you to by another model. Tube, sidechain, & feedback modes are all user selectable. HCL is run by a great guy, customer service & workmanship pride will always win me over.

So loaded it on a new tracks master bus, not even changing any parameters and simply switching out the t-racks comp I had on the master bus. Don't get me wrong the t-racks comp works great with no latency, and solid sound quality but this thing is a whole new level...

Its subtle but not, glue but doesn't sound 'glued'.

Can't wait to try this on other instruments.

RM, you hit this one out of the park bro, it sounds like you put a TON of work into this and it shows!

Amazing quality, amazing value.

5 out of 5 here.

the other commercial comps in Nebula are really cool/solid sounding, but man brocef you are the king of sampling comps for Nebula IMO.

cheers peet, thanks for your comment :)
About the compressor, it sounds really rich, if you know what I mean. No other Nebula program I used sounds that crystal quality. Makes me curious and eager to test the real thing :)
But I am getting soon in the studio some other monsters (Fearn vt7, Pendulum ocl2, Vertigo vsc2), so no need to buy the Varis hw too. It's already in my computer, hehe :p
