indeed! i had to just chime in here to co-sign this. i had the opportunity to use this compressor and preamp on a bass guitar track today. the compressor alone sounded great. after rendering it, i loaded the preamp and found the preset for -20 thresh and 10:1 ratio, and wowowowow!!! the preamp just gave it a nice warmth and thumping attack (without changing the compression).
Anyone out there with the actual hardware willing to record a test?
good idea to do a shootout on this lib. Here is a quick and sooo dirty test (band playing live). Kick and snare coming out of a digital source, then routed to 2*dbx160x for analog treat then S*L Alpha link MADI SX converters. Same routing for Nebula treatment (wo the 160x of course) --> so that all tracks go via the S*L for a fair comparison).
--> remember you may want to better adjust the peak/rms yourself --> be aware that I don't have the 160a but the 160x.
I had a 160x fully modded by revive audio and its gone now cause there's really know difference between it and this library.
I too am thinking to sell mine ...
EDIT: sorry, wrong link, new one will follow as soon as it is uploaded
