I have worked extensively with this compressor, and I'm working with fate compressor.
A thing I noticed, is that they sound pretty good, more none of the two Safe peak frequency , in the case of dBx165A , which has the rate in 20:1 , failed to hold a pick of snare and kicks and do not know if this is a limitation of the compressor in the nebula or limitation in compressor library. In short or they are not intended to handle peak or I am configuring wrong.
In particular D*x 165A library, I liked not in snare and Kicks, The compressor does not maintain the footprint of the musician, I prefer something that maintains the footprint of the musician, and the stereo buss was great, improved the stereo image.
But within the item sound they are titans and very true.
In Rate I think the compressor is falling short of necessary, Therefore fate compressor and dBx165A are not designed to handle peak.
I think maybe is a limitation of the nebula.
More compress they compress very well and dBx165A the atack is very convincing.

I have the impression that Mimi uses some online translator.

I've had the 2:1 preset for a couple of days now. Regardless of the sound (very good for some sources less for others) the compression action seems slightly random and unpredictable. I've made a small test comparing another software compressor to the 165A using pulses with fixed level/length. Top channel is the 165A using the shortest attack time and about 100ms release. Bottom channel is the (other) software comp using 5ms attack and 100ms release:

Looks like your Nebula is having problems keeping up with your current kern/rate settings. Try to keep the Kern @ 22ms or so.

Hi Eric,

Sorry for the double correspondence (email+forum), but this might be interesting for others...
I don't understand- how does my system effect the way nebula renders (regardless of speed)? I understand the playback being effected by the CPU etc, but rendering errors duo to short kernel lengths? (v3 defaults=10ms) in any case, I'm using a pretty decent i5 system.

If you steer to page 3, you can see i have already addressed this problem. My best guess is this is kind of an interaction of the program rate and the rythm of your audio. This is why Giancarlo says nebula is not really ready for compressors. Sometimes the artifacts are not audible at all on more complex materials, but sometimes it can even produce a double attack which really sounds ugly.

Changing the kernel length does seem to improve things. On my system, a 22ms kernel seems to give more predictable results. I'm not sure how it effects the minimal attack times, but the compressor still responds fast enough when using a low GLOB/RATE.
