Thoughts on AITB fate and snap compressors?

Postby cactuseskimo » Sun Oct 02, 2011 4:07 am

Hey all,

I have a credit with AITB for one library and I was thinking of picking up one of these comps. I'm totally new to nebula's comps, so I just thought I would get some opinions on these from know a thing or two. Thoughts? Better worse, than other nebula comps?

I could get an eq, but the only one I don't have from AITB is the germanos series. I'm not sure I need more eq's.

Fate compressor has no adjustable attack, but it sounds thick and warm.

I found that it's still useful even more advanced compressor programs released by other developers.

But I do want the Fate compressor at 96KHz with adjustable attack.

I wish AITB back and release something new 8-)

i use snap-compressor a lot.
it does what the name implies and gives some nice body to the sound.
you have to take time to learn the behaviour of this library, but i find it very useful on a lot of instruments and busses.

i got very nice results as a parallel-comp. this way you can push the distortion a little, without destroying the overall sound.

Fate ships with a version that has no compression and just imparts the tone, which I love on heavily distorted guitar.

I tend to use Snap on bass and snare in particular.

I don't know much about how NAT works, but since the N**e model being sampled for the Fate program has no variable attack how could they create a Nebula version of that compressor *with* variable attack? You can only sample what the actual hardware can do, yes?
