78 Five was created by a chain that includes serial compression, filtering, with the focus being centered and inspired around the now discontinued F*******e Platinum Penta. This final result however is really something different than its separate counterparts. With the "78 Five" and "78 Five II" presets, you get a more traditional compressor in regards to parameter control and are more about movement and rhythmic variation than full-on sonic character. With the instrument presets, attack and release are all fixed and set by general frequency ranges of typical instruments and created as individual presets. Ratio is fixed as well however varying from preset to preset of course. Part of the chain also included the FET distortion gain. Whereas "78 Five" and "78 Five II" are about the compression, these instrument presets are about FET distortion with optional and yet minimal controls for compression of any part of the signal. Upon insertion of these instrument presets, you are already dealing with level matched compression/excitation so just putting it on a track, with 0 threshold will give you some nice flavor. There are 9 Presets total in this library...

Here's a few audio samples to give you an idea of what each part of the library can do as well as the free demos.
The demo is cool. I usually have a hard time with these limited functionality things... I get frustrated and bored with them! I am just a spoiled brat who likes to have it all! But until I got annoyed ( ) I love the possibilities with this! I will be purchasing this for sure!
I am such a Nebulaholic.... Already bought this comp library, and already have 3 or 4 different instances tweaked in a sweet reggae remix.... This is not a typical compressor to my ears. Tons of mojo and usefulness. Nice!
