Compressor technology status?

Postby scopus » Sun Apr 28, 2013 1:11 pm

hey its been a while since looked into nebula compression and remember they weren't very good at actual compression with fast stuff, but more for the color. Has the tech evolved to compress as good as hardware yet, if yes which compressors have it? thanks

In general, out of all of the compressors available now, you might like to check out the ones from Cupwise and see if they do what you want.

Not quite sure what you are looking for specifically given your posting. Are you looking for that "instant pumping/super fast slaming" kind of characteristic that some hardware units have?

Well, from what I've understood, it's about the limitations of the tech itself, so it can't be "fixed" or "evolve" (unfortunately).

Correct me if I'm wrong..

KultComp and G76 were sampled and programmed in a way which allow ultra fast compression while still reproducing all the little nuances and characteristics of the original hardware. You'll have to load them with a deticated nebula version which is basically a tweaked copy of nebula which is explained in the manual in detail.

TNT dynamics will be released today. Will not need a modded version of nebula and reacts like the hardware. A announcement will be made later today.

Is this possible on the Mac version of Nebula? If not, how can I get the most out of these libraries?

I don't own a Mac, but I can say with confidence that it is possible. Basically, you make a second version of Nebula by copy/paste and change a setting in the XML if memory serves me correctly

I thought that on macintosh anything is possible.. and easier.. and.. no.. not cheaper. :lol:

Yeah, compressors moved forward a lot since Cupwises` historical Rayphlex. And there are new libraries coming every month. I just checked Tim Pethericks` TNT and it is a great compressor that allows very aggresive compression and few extras (first gate program in nebula!!). So, yeah, it's moving forward as we speak.. (unlike macs.. sorry, couldn't resist :D)
