Lordnielson, interesting to hear.. I so far have found it more suitable for individual channels (although I expected it to shine on the 2bus). Which program/setting do you prefer for bus duties?

2:1 SF. No more than 2db reduction on loudest parts. Nicely transparent. Glues. Adds presence and snap in the right places.

Horses for courses. I've noticed that a lot of people working with virtual instruments and samples have preferences very different to people working mainly with physical instruments recorded with microphones.

There's no right or wrong.

snap compressor is incredible in sidechain. I posted a demo example in sidechain thread. Today we should release both the sidechain version of nebula and a patch created by mplay to all existing compressors

Hi!

Often when using this fine compressor it starts to peak the vst-meter in Nuendo 5 and audio stutters. It can run fine for a while then just go bananas even when the PC is left with a lot of CPU overhead.

Any tips?

True. The Snap doesn't like real drum overheads recorded with a (nasty) high end. I always use the 1968me on the mixbuss, it softens the high end very nicely.

Does anyone else experience erratic transient behavior?
I'm getting some weird, over exaggerated kick hits that seem unnatural and caused by the SNAP. I'm using the Comp lightly at 2:1 or 4:1 with a max of 2-3db reduction, as well as adjusting by ear.

Scooter, The sidechaining update (if you can get the routing to work fixes that) I've had weird behavior on heavy bass content material. Compressors normally have some HPF built in, where as my understanding Nebula compresses it all, normally. Plus the reduction readings are not so accurate. You may be compressing a lot more that you think.
goodluck
cheers
