@ bryan7nebula:
Thanks a lot for your efforts here! You really got me thinking about getting both C1B and C2A and the MFD compressor. And I really like your conclusion: "But I think my ITB bases are covered pretty well with those five."

- There is a time for getting good tools for the job, but then there is a lot of time really learning those tools. Limit yourself to really learn the flavours and when to use what tool is one of the important things to getting better, I think.

- And I just have to say thanks to AlexB too, both for making these incredible good tools - and for a very useful demo where I really can test different settings and get a good impression about what a compressor like C1B can do.

Cheers

Yes, learning the tools is important. Here is my usual process for working with a compressor. I pick a ratio that in my mind fits my goals (this is a guess, more or less). Then I pull the threshold down until I feel I am getting close to my goal. Then I work on the attack and then the release. After that I tweak the different knobs to refine.

Does this process make sense? Any suggestions?

Hi!
Yes, that makes sense to me, I use this method too. Lately I have began experimenting with combining two compressors after each other (A classic combination is LA2A followed by 1176 or the other way around, see here: http://www.uaudio.com/blog/chaining-1176ln-la2a-compressors).

That's not totally new to me, but I haven't done it with Nebula compressors that much yet. I found out that combining Sum 100a from TimP with the CL1b from AlexB was sounding very good on a quite dynamic female vocal. But I haven't done any "scientific" experiments - so it's just one observation! To be investigated more :D

-Little digression, but kind of in the similar ballpark: I picked up a cool tip regarding combining Pultec EQ from different 3rd party Nebula developers, using one EQ on bass and another on kick.

I reckon combining different compressors from our 3rd party developers will reveal interesting colors/flavours...!
