Lol. Yeah, daddy is broke so y'all have to leave the nest :D. Will definitely pick it up later though, the demo sounds great! Good to see you decided to release this green monster.

LOL! THIS THING IS A MONSTER! :lol:

Its been a while I could access my home studio cause of moving and computer related problems...now its all fixed and I'm back :D

I couldn't play with this one enough yet but on my fast test drive it made everything sound bigger, transients can potentially slap your face :lol: worked nice with behemoth too!

Just for fun I threw a super loud song and still it had something to add! every parameter responds "obvious" :shock:

Thank You!

I had 3 songs to compare, one electronica and two metal.

I'm mainly into rock-metal (and mastered many in the past for friends and clients) but since things are "clipped" these days I guess tools for electronica are somehow getting more and more acceptance in rock genre(like waveshapers or extra punchy comp.s).

what I noticed mainly was sub material peaks with help of this comp. can be heard easyer on smaller systems. Worked better than something like r-bass or inflator, just a touch to the peak of transients with strong settings and its there :mrgreen:

Electronica in that matter was easy, just crank the ratio highest with relatively fast timing and rest is up to threshold setting. I can see people using this a lot for lower-range material individually or for a some-what A*I 2500 character (punchy but still harmonically rich sounding) on buss.

Rock was a little harder; it was a dense mix with lots of loud elements. What worked was basicly higher input lvl., a little lower threshold with little longer release. I guess depending if material accepts, behemoth can help for a better "flow".

Loud rock song was experimental and interesting, waveform was simply a brick so lets call this re-mastering :P

I lowered the gain and added behemoth cause it was impossible for any comp. to detect and deliver punch in some aural balance, so I had to excite them somehow in a way with "tempo" (simply needed more than a de-clipper).

It worked nice with setting 2 (or 3, can remember exactly) on behemoth and a small tweak on drive. That thin sounding brick started to sound like something commercial 8-)

This time I almost nebula-radically drived the input of greensqueeze (realized it isn't tender like eq's when it comes to drive stuff) and used lesser ratio's. I wasn't expecting miracles (never truly happens in audio mastering :lol: ) but with fast attack and mid release (plus with behemoth) a really nice balance happened...with only 2 nebula instaces!

I'm not composing or recording these days so it won't find its way to (for example ;) ) my drum group or buss for a while but I can see myself using this before a limiter or clipper on a full mix to get better loud masters...

Just to add; before this I almost never needed to use plug-in compressors when mastering 8-)
