If you have CDSM's version you'll love this! :D

Wow! That's a bold statement!!!

You really have me intrigued now Mercado! Because CDSM version is my favorite high shelf EVER. It's just amazing how it sounds on vocals--I really love it.

Now what you just said is REALLY interesting, anyone else can say something supporting it??

Any other comparisons with CDSM?

Any other thoughts about it Mercado? I respect your opinion very much so... and you got me thinking about purchasing this baby!

Hi Orlando,

Yes, I thought I had the best high shelf with Michael's version but this second version from Tim is unreal. I had my reserves with his first version and we discussed a lot about it over email but now this second version is amazing. The clarity and definition is awesome. Michael's version is still a very good choice,in fact, I'll be using both on stereo tracks (different versions on each channel like if I had two units), but I have to be careful with that approach because both libraries sound very different. It's like having an old unit and a refurbished one. This is so exciting!

I wouldn't even think about it. If you love Michael's version just go ahead and get Tim's, you won't regret it ;)

tried the demo and the weight in the low end is really nice...the highs very open...when I try to replicate with algo plugins I just cant do it...problem as Ive decided to go to Logic X and we have no 64 bit yet...but Ill pick this up I think. The punch in the transient was more evident than my Germanos...

Those Germanos never really cut it for me. There's one of them, can't remember its number right now, which does a great job on mids but I have Michael's Q8 for that, which is my favorite for mids.

I'm obsessed with high shelves and I've spent a lot of time comparing algo plugins with Nebula and nothing comes close, sadly. That Siemens W295B is my favorite for that but there are also some other libraries out there that sound pretty good as well in that area (Michael's NiceEQ solid state version and his Q8 come to mind).

People seem to be obsessed with transients and their behaviour in Nebula but they don't realize that hardware doesn't actually treat transients like they think. It's a mellow punch,they round up things. It's not the spikey punch we're used to from plugins.

So... basically... Bought it. Tried it. Loved it.

Just when I thought I had the best hi shelf ever... OBVIOUSLY someone has to prove me wrong...

Thanks for the great review!!!

Guys, just purchase this library, AMAZING... no really, it's the new standard for saying a vocal has that "airy" beauty!

Thanks guy's!

These comment's mean a lot to me. I spent many hours on this library.

I have started work on a mini release which should be ready by next week. I'm using the same technique's as I did for this Eq, although the next release is not a eq and still makes a lovely difference. :P

Yes the high end is a bit of a classic. I really love the sound of the whole unit though. What I really love is how you can cut high or lows and it does not get harsh In the mid range, which is really what analog eq's are about! You don't lose the punch on top of all that! The mid range great too because the presence is always there not matter how hard you push it!

This. I had to do a high cut on a master yesterday, figured what the heck, I haven't really gotten a chance to use the v2 at all yet...really super nice. I'm not used to this EQ (in hardware or software formats which is funny I even have other iterations of it installed just never got around to them) so I wasn't aware that it was 3dB stepped; at first I was like "ouch, this is the EQ people lose their shit over?" Then I made my cut and thought "yep, this must be the one."

I bought it today finally. I have only tossed it on full mixes so far and it's great. Tomorrow i will play around with instruments. I can't wait to test out the mids, i have some horn tracks waiting!
