Yes, i forgot to mention that. The "NM" programs should be used with Nebula Compressor (the xml configuration from the manual). I've designed those versions, so you can choose from different degrees of CPU consumption and quality based on your computer resources. If your PC can't handle the "NC" versions but you want to use them anyway, here is a tip: If you render your projects offline at the end, you could have the maximum TIMED length in the MAST page or in the xml set to 2ms for mixing and 30ms for offline rendering. You could then hear the fast compression behavior accurately while mixing and have the best quality in the mix down. Please refer to the manual for more details.
Kult is tremendous and I'm loving it - even had to remix an entire track once I had it - but I think I may be experiencing a weird bug in the tube program. I don't think I saw anything in this thread about it, but I've found that the 40% saturation is way too quiet - is it just me?
Thanks for getting back so quickly. I'll have to check tonight, but I can tell you that I work at 44.1 only. I do remember that the other rates I tried were fine, but I can't remember how methodical in choosing sample rates I was.
I've now checked a range of settings. I had kult tube after kult comp on the master buss followed by a Nebula tape. The 30% and 50% settings, at regular and HQ, and at 'ext_44.1' and 'ext' (presumably 96?) are fine.
If you've encountered low level with an "ext" program, this is normal. Those programs are to be used in a special way as described in the manual, in order to achieve more than 30% tube harmonics. However, thanks to a new discovery, i managed to get the 100% harmonics into a single program, so you can use that for distortion above 30% and use the the GDRV parameter to decrease/increase harmonic distortion.
The 100% bonus is already available in your user account. Otherwise you've gotten an e-mail. If you can't find it, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org The continuous feature didn't work that well for the KultComp Tube, but with reduced GDRV you get pretty much the same.
