AlexB - Valve Tech Dynamics (upgrade from old OTD)

Postby AlexB » Tue Jun 09, 2015 3:58 pm

Hello,

the Valve Tech Dynamics library has been released !!!

C1B - C2A: are new libraries sampled at 44.1kHz and 96kHz, programmed with the new AlexB's compressor technique for the best flexibility and sound.

All tube-based Opto compressors from 1985. The number of hit records featuring these compressors is countless and the number of stars demanding them for their recording and mixing is extreme! Use them for keys, guitars, vocals, mixbus, mastering, the result is always musical and transparent. Some differences exist between the two units, the C2A dual compressor has a little more "round" character to the compression and a little different frequency response compared to C1B mono compressor. The units has been refurbished with BC audio capacitors and NOS Telefunken / Siemens tubes.

To upgrade the library please send an email request. Upgrade costs 8,00EUR.

Please, check the website and download the user manual and try the Demo, they have the same audio quality and performance of the commercial releases but with some restrictions.

No C.P. !

Thank you, all the best ! 8-)

Thanks for the link. I had the wrong name, was looking for C1B C2A.

It's more fast and better if you download the demo and try/compare it with your materials and ears ;)

I just tried the demo for twenty minutes on a drum loop A/B with MJUC.

Wow. These are great. MJUC, as good as it is, does not compare sonically to either the C1B or C2A. This has been the most pleasant experience I have ever had with a Nebula compressor.

I pushed the C1B to a smash setting, and it sounded wonderful. I think the C2A is stronger/meatier for more moderate settings.

I have been more of a fan of Alex's EQs--until now. In my humble opinion, these truly compare to hardware compressors.

When switching back and forth between MJUC and either Valve Tech, the digital harshness of MJUC was apparent. I was surprised at the difference.

And there are no Nebula caveats with this compressor. You spin the dials, and they do what they are supposed to do. It is essentially as controllable as an "algo" compressor, with the clear, gentle sound of Nebula. Great job.

I would love to hear what others think.

To be honest, Nebula isn't my go-to plugin for compression, but since I'm a big fan of optical compressors and these libraries come from a name with proven reputation, I've decided to give it a try.

I was testing the demo on a vocals which needed generous amount of compression, but I noticed that these programs (especially C2A) were really "gentle", so that I could barely hear the compression. Even when I was getting reduction of up to -15 dB, I was feeling like I'm just lowering the volume. I think that the other Nebula compressors are much more aggressive. Does anyone has any experience to share about this?

One thing that I really like about VTD is the tone it gives to my tracks. Sometimes I put it in the signal path to add some warmth, without compressing, just like the real hardware! But there's a small issue with that. Even when threshold is set to 0 dB, I still get 0,5 to 1,5 dB of gain reduction on the Nebula meters. Any explanation on this?

Hi Shuriken

I don't know if you saw this in the Alexb manual but it might solve the problem.
2.1 - Parameter Settings

Some parameters must to be set into Nebula's MAST Page for better performance and Nebula experience:

1 – set the Mode from SIMPLE to GURU
2 – set the AHEAD to 6ms
3 – set the RATE CNV to 4500ms
4 – click on save and reload Nebula
