OK, I reproduced the problem but it only happens when Nebula receives audio for the first time, i.e., if your drums start at 1:24 then it'll do it there but not anymore during the whole track. I've seen this problem with ALL comps for Nebula.

I don't have it with all Nebula comps, at least not after the last update (try the 1968). I think it's related to big level changes (as dpclarkson hinted). You will notice it more when you're working with a big dynamic range: I noticed it first when I tried using it for a marimba playing modern classical music (a lot of pauses and dynamic changes)

Yes, it is more noticeable on highly dynamic material with pauses/silences between each "hit" (like a kick track).

It's eliminating the distortion, but does it affect the accuracy?


Thanks for the tip- I will try it out. Since the curve type and kernel switching are effected then (I guess) it must change the behavior of the compressor.
Edit: lindb does eliminate the distortion but changes the sound. Would be interesting to hear AlexB & Giancarlo take on this issues.


it's a different way for fade out/in each block. Dynamic level is unchanged, frequency response too, and so harmonic distortion.


Do you then recommend changing this parameter as a solution for this issue and why does the "tip of the month" recommends changing the non-reverb version?

I'm so fucking confused by Nebula's esoteric setting's that it's getting silly! :roll:

Can someone point me in the direction of a post where it explains exactly what the settings in the master page should be so this plugin works properly :?:

^^^^ to be honest i have spent about £500 on Neb and libraries and i am also getting a little annoyed at the lack of specific information in once place and developers giving us the "read the manual" or "it must be something you're doing wrong" line.

To be fair, Giancarlo has said many, MANY times that the settings you want to use are the default settings on installation. In almost every case where the settings varied from those desired defaults it was because people were manually editing their XML files which, while you certainly may do it, is completely at your own risk. It's actually more dangerous than tweaking those settings on the MAST page because at least on the MAST page you won't introduce any typographical errors.

That said, I'd still love to see a manual-type document about the default settings (and what the actual default values are), it would for sure be useful. Knowing that some of us do indeed tweak, it would be useful to occasionally check my files and make sure I didn't screw anything up.

@yr
yes. I'll use this library extensively this weekend and I'll report more about it.
