It looks interesting I hope its all the pre-amps from his PCS, I assume so.

I hope the A*I is coming soon, it my fav compressor.

It seems that this is an upgrade to PCS since PCS isn't available anymore. I would like to know how the upgrade process will work for existing customers.

Alex seems to be out of commission. I bought from him yesterday and still didn't get my link. I know how people will always say "be patient" "oh he's amazing at customer service"...but it's a really bad customer experience having to wait this long before getting a link for download in this day and age. :evil:

yeah yeah.. come on.. I hate when people are getting upset because of ONE day delay.. My wife ordered glasses two weeks ago in a BIG optics network.. she's still waiting.. (it was supposed to be ready in two days). More than a month ago I return my new guitar back to shop and they should have repair it or give me new one in less than two weeks.. Talk about bad customer experience in everyday life.. but with nebula and 3rd party developers I've only had good experience!! Sure I waited for some libraries for one day too.. It's totally normal and ok even in 21 century. ;)

BTW I was testing today the new Preamp Colors & Saturation.. what a great update! Info from Alex: Completely re worked collection of preamps with saturation control and a few new presets by preamps at 96/44.1kHz 5K. The sound has been improved as the CPU/RAM load a bit. Full compatible with the previous release.
The commercial version will be sold in the next week and PCS customers can upgrade at PC&S with a little cost.

Good news is that You can saturate those presets much more than before.. They don't produce artifacts so easily. So it's easy to dial nice fat tone without fighting nebula engine so much.. I think tomorrow I'll start a thread with some preamp presets comparisions.. :P

I don't see why there needs to be a one day delay...Pretty much every download purchase I ever make is instanteneous.

Good for you if it doesn't get on your nerves. It gets on mine.

Hey no worries man I got my download link and everything. I just don't like having to wait for the download link. I would much prefer instantaneous downloads like most other websites.

Your programs are awesome nonetheless and I will keep buying from you. I'm planning on getting the PCS upgrade tonight.

I am assuming that Alex's internet is goofy again.... I ordered hours ago and still have not even gotten the email to set up payment. I am stoked to use these!

Just put in my upgrade order.

Wondering, though ... Does the upgrade replace all the original PRGs and Vectors on the install, or do we need to remove them manually [first] ??

Thanks

This update replaces them all and also adds some new preamps. Fully compatible with the previous version.
