I enjoy the compression in this example a lot, however I can hear clicks in the first and last processed examples. I had read that this could be solved with look-ahead. do you know if these examples used the look ahead?
I use Nebula for as much as I can in every session as far as preamps, EQs, cabinets, reverbs.
But rarely for dynamics control, and that only when what is emulated is a slow varimu or, at most, opto type compressor.
I don't want to put too fine a point on it, but I find the idea of an 1176 emulation in Nebula to be an oxymoron. There is simply no way for Nebula's relatively slow dynamics envelope to behave in an 1176 all-buttons-in fashion, or anything like it.
If people know that what they're getting is authentic 1176 color, but not the actual dynamic functionality of a FET, then that's fine. But be aware of that.
I am afraid to say this doesn't capture the fast time constants at all. Maybe i am missing something. I am a/bing against a modern hardware 1176. Sounds okay with attack and release slower than 4, but even then not like the hardware
The all buttons mode sounds nothing like the hardware at all.
Maybe i am setting it wrong. Alex can you suggest some settings for us? I can't dial this in to sound like an 1176
Yes, this is a limiter and not a compressor. So very fast attack is not really possible in Nebula, but it's right programmed in the library. So, Nebula will improve in the future and we have a great program.
Normally I use the Fet Comp as 1st insert in the chain to control the peak, -2 or -3dB of GR at 12:1 are right for me to give control, color and the vibe at kick-drum, snare, toms, bass, percussions, guitars and voice.
If Nebula will improve with dynamics, will the existing programs (76D, 4KD, etc.) also be updated as well? I had the idea that with the release of the 76D, the Nebula engine would also get an upgrade for faster attack/release times and distortion.
1) What is this preset for? I just don't get it. 2) None of the "Line Amp" presets load for me. Just the dreaded "init" shows up. And that is for all of the line amp presets in both sample rates. Anyone else? Do I need to try another download?
