The most important feature, it seems "invisible", but it glues the sound perfectly
It's really a step forward in compression.
Please do release an Aqua at some point, as not all of us are wishing for that level of control, or we're not all ready for the full nebula learning curve. As you have already done the hard work, an Aqua package will just mean more sales for you.

Well, nothing is subtle or invisible about the sound of this unit. Too bad, it could have been for me a reason to go for N4. The AlexB libraries were kinda that (subtle/invisible) and always a disappointment for me.

Maybe one day...

compression is not "pumping", compression is very smooth and invisible. This is a direct consequence of the approach used, which is the soft saturator one. Those kind of compressors are always gentle even at extreme attack and release settings. Coral is an example (but the curve is rather different; also coral is derived from a tube device). An other example is dw frn vt7.
Add to the discussion several points: attacks are never "fast" and with a very noticeable hold effect, and most of release times are rather slow and with a very gentle slope (not just a straight line like the one you could see in a sand bus compressor).
I don't think alexb can emulate those curves using a nebula3 template approach, because those one are not pure exponentials (and basic nebula3 templates are using a pure exponential if not hacked accordingly). There was a picture in my story, instagram page, but it expired several minutes ago.

Like ROSE we decided to give to all N4 owner also the VIOLET COMPRESSOR - ACQUA LIBRARY version (the best emulation by Acustica characterized by new gorgeus N4 skin).

-Authorize it manually: coping the N4.AUT file inside your Nebula temp repository in the current path: "../Nebula4TempRepository/AcquaPlugins/"



All versions include in only one installer called N4 Library WIN VIOLET, you can find it in N4 folder on BOX.

Here the direct link to download the WIN version:

I suppose you mean soft knee; well it's actually a vari-mu and those things are gold on the mixbus exactly for that. But this unit has a special 'sound' which makes it valuable to me. And that sound is directly connected to the sc filter and the very colored output stage.

Release that in whatever form and I'll buy it instantly.

the term "soft" knee doesn't explain exactly what is happening in tube devices. A S*L ratio 2 has a soft knee. Here the curve is composed COMPLETELY by a soft knee. The approach was explained several months ago in coral, and it is similar to a soft saturator strategy, instead compared to an hard one (a compressor is adding to this curve time constants... but the basic static function is an ideal saturator).
