Hi,

It's a two stage release . This is the like the unit behave's in terms of shape. it's very subtle. Remember this is a peak limiter. So it's not meant to work like a compressor with regular release times .

The curve of the release gets slower the lower the gain reduction.
But it's very subtle. And that's a good thing as it keeps it more 3d and interesting. I like the longer release time as it has more breathing Quality. Kinda slow and fast at the same time.

All the best

Tim

Originally These were commonly used in broadcast. A few engineers I know from these parts use them on mixing and mastering.

These back in the day were used for peak limiter and compressor together. So, I still have to sample the musical part. But first I have this C*mpex here to sample next.

Again if you use it with nebula regular you can get the fast attack with the ahead function. I still need to sample the compressor section.

This limiter sounds great ! Very transparent
Great job on the main bus

I bought almost all Tim's libraries, they all sound amazing

I am looking forward for the new comp "coming soon"

Thanks for your words .....


I should mention to everyone-
In order to hear the program dependence working you need to put the release to slow (same as the hardware)or basically the further you get the control away from fast release the more program dependent it becomes, that's the beauty of the hardware , this way you get fast release reaction on the transients and slow release on the slower stuff, I think it's very musical..


All the best

Have a wonderfull 2014!!!

I have got some questions. Do I load this program in nebula regular or nebula reverb?

If I understand right, do I have to put release at max to make it program dependent?

Thanks a lot.

Yes nebula reverb..

It does not have to be maximum.but at fastest release setting the release will only have one timing , fast. As you increase the release time the longer the release will get but only on the lightly limited parts. Your effectively only changing the release time of lightly limited parts.



The longer you Set the release and the higher the gain reduction the more you will here this difference in release times reacting to dynamics. It's more 3d as you increase the release time.

This thing is a beast. Depth and width on the stereo bus. Solid lows and sweet highs.Genius.
