Yes it is! around 200 micro seconds.Though U76 is much faster. The release is ultra fast on both too. Long release settings are actually fast and slow. Like all the latest comps... I created sort of charging element inside nebula in order to get the PD. This means there are variables for control depending on what the music is doing.

Thanks. Wow that is fast. I was suprised on how much I like this on drums. So is the medium attack around 50ms and slow 100ms?

Awesome, I appreciate it. Is the opto3a cleaner then the sum 100a?

Just get SUM100a and I must say it is the best Nebula compressor for Mix and Drum Bus (I produce EDM)!
It adds those punch and fat without unnecessary pumping.
Can't hardly wait to try it on vocals.

The HF cut is perfect, and naturally focuses the audio in an analog-sounding, warmed-up fashion.

Pretty sure this is just what the hardware does, and after that it's a matter of taste.

In my experience, if you're trying to get a smooth full midrange translation of your mix, rolling off the high frequencies in a natural way helps bring out this quality. If you don't love it you can compensate with Green and a high shelf in the upper echelons. This imparts a smoother character than no process, glueing everything together in a cohesive way.

I like the high end as well - nice and smooth and pushes the focus slightly down in the midrange, which can be a good thing on bright vocal or guitar recordings.

If you're worried about it dulling things too much, try a nice air boost at 15-25kHz pre-compressor. The compressor will 'push' the boost back down into the meat of the vocal and glue it together a bit, making it easier to get away with large air boosts. The midrange should still sound full with the mild softening up top (sometimes a big high boost can leave vocals sounding too thin in the upper mids, and focused too high in the sound field).

Try the Sum 100 Line Hot, mode 100 and turn both EVEN and ODD controls to +12dB. Put THAT on your 2bus once you think you have it sounding good...

Just picked this up - I was considering the Softube version but I'm glad I got this. And the GUIs are beautifully put together. They look great on my screen.
