i totally agree.
i personally prefer the B version now, for it has a good constant punch in the low and 200 hz area.
judging from the last demos, nebula should be the B version, cause its a bit darker

maybe the unit has a gentle roll off, and it adds up with a lot of instances?

I'm planning to do an "interpolate continuous gain" version for this, and other similar eqs... As free upgrade for the customers 8-)

Appreciating your effort (as always), but in my book it's not that useful in this particular situation. A*I 550 isn't continuous gain - I always tried my best to not accidentally choose the interpolated A*I 550 patches from nebula-programs but rather stick to the stepped ones, since the interpolated effect was pretty "fake". Either you boost 2 dB or 0 dB, that's A*I ! :D but that's - as always - my humble opinion.

I prefer A by far. The "density" around 200 hz in the B area sounds like plugin-mud to me. I'd be surprised if A was the Waves A*I.

I liked "A" more because the snare sounded clearer, "B" had more of a vintage sound to it though.
