However in the future ALL libraries will be improved in sound and performance and even the 4KD of course. 8-)

Does this mean there's going to be an update to the library... or, is there an update for Nebula in the works to address compressor behavior? Very curious... :)

I wouldn't say that Snap is eating lows significantly.. It's more like the 4KD Bus Comp is eating highs.. Somebody here on forum complained about this. More important is how the compressor behaves and in my opinion snap works a bit better.. the 4KD is too slow.. it can be more alive when used with nebula komp instance but still snap is more snappy and fluid. I can't wait for Tim Cupwise to sample S*L bus comp his way.. I'm sure that it will be perfect then! ;)

Can someone say something about AlexB Sidecar81 and VBC console? Both N**e, but which one is more Nevish? I'd wanna use N**e for tracking sound and S*L for mixing purposes. Sweet nevish sound with punchy and agressive S*L addition. Something like that.

4KD, as all AlexB programs, doesn't add or take off any bass, mid or highs. The frequency response is always identical at 100% to the sampled hardware, the same for the timing (Attack - Release).
Mix with the ears, not with the eyes...

Alex, i've decided to buy both)
Can you say something about consoles? Which will be best for me? VBC or Sidecar and CLC or MLC? As i mentioned - first for sweet, silky sound, and second for additional punch and S*L agressive sound.

MLC is veery transparent console..nice and modern (great for electronic stuff) but for more of a rock sound CLC is much better when You seek punch and color for the sound.. ;)
