It's worth it, trust me) Especially with AlexB’s N**e 88RS it sounds just crazy awesome! Besides normal compression, I use it also as a maximizer with digital limiter like Izotope Ozone or else. Sounds much better than maximizing the signal with only algo stuff.
Question: I've noticed in Nebula's GUI display, a flashing 'Q' in the upper left corner. Not sure I'd seen this before
What flashing 'Q' mean ?
Beside that ... my test have been on the master BUS ... not so much for compression, but for the 'tone shaping'. I like what this is doing, and am this >||< close to purchasing ... till I started reading the manual For the demo, I've NOT made any changes to the stock XML file ... just testing a variety of libraries.
Don't know what new stuff is coming out, but I'm on the look for a very clean sounding compressor/limit that just makes everything sound GREAT simple enough
Anyway ... want to be sure I'm testing this properly ... AND, at the same time, trying to understand the dual threshold thing [may need to grab the hardware manual for help].
I see the flashing "Q" also on Nebula 1.3.721 (Core40G3 x86), Reaper 4.62,WIn 7 32bit. I've selected a half-dozen 660 presets and they all have it. None of the other presets from other cupwise sampled devices that I tried have it...have to wait for 'The Man' to show up and clue us in! (token smiley -->)
the flashing q is nothing to be worried about. that's nebula's way of telling you that a program is set up to use quad channels, meaning the extra two inputs which are typically used for sidechain compression. those programs aren't actually set up to use sidechain input for the compression, but theres a bug or something where if you just touch one of the parameters having to do with that, then nebula thinks you are using it. i accidentally touched one of those parameters. so it says q but its not a sidechain program.
but it has 0 effect in this case, is nothing to be worried about, so the best thing to do is just forget it's there! also, i don't think the full version programs do this (i could be wrong), but even if they do, it doesn't matter!
