if you dont have a new xml and want one you have to reinstall. i've done it several times and it's pretty quick and painless. you could install to a new folder just to get the xml.

Thank you, I tried it and it seems to have worked. I only had to point the path name in the xml file back to 'c:\nebularepositorytemp' (I think thats the path). It would be very nice if Nebula had a button to restore the standard published xml settings.

ok i just uploaded a new .zip for the demo set, which contains another demo program.

the original demo was taken from the 'comp' vector in the full set, and demo2 is from 'combo1'. for demo1 i disabled the thresh2 control, which is a sampled control from the unit, and which seems to adjust the ratio/thresh/knee all at once. so it drastically changes how the thing sounds.

i decided that having that disabled means that the demo only gives a slice of what the comps can do and sound like so i made demo2, which has that control still intact. it doesn't have dB readout like thresh1 does, it just goes from 0-100, and around 0 puts you on the 'compression' side of that control on the actual unit, while 100 is on the 'limiter' side. i think the closer to 0 you get, the 'squishier' or 'mushier' the sound gets, and it gets more open as you go towards 100. you also get less compression as you move towards 100. but i feel like most of the best uses with this thing are probably when you only use it for a couple dB of compression, for the sound it gives.

demo2 still has limitations though. it's only 1k, and the attack AND release controls are restricted to the fastest settings only. also there's no SHQ program for it like there is for demo1. i think it gives you more insight into the kinds of results these things can give your mixes though.

also within a few minutes after i post this the price is going up to what i originally planned for it to be..

fantastic idea to bring this fat bottomed MONO horse on the nebula platform :!: :!: :!:
a phenomenal boost by limiter SHQ.

Great !

After using the demos more so for their harmonic content prior to the stock Ableton comps I'm fairly sold on picking these up. They add a fantastic character to any vanilla plugin comp. finding new uses for both my own and clients mixes each and every day.

Great addition to the tool box, even after initially being underwhelmed with the demos.

So I've split the set up into two parts, because of a few comments I've got that the demo programs don't show off the quality of the compressors in the full set very well. It's hard to have demo programs that do that without giving too much away, so by cutting the program in half it isn't as big of a leap of faith for you to buy one part if you're a bit on the fence about it.

Individual halves/parts of the set can be bought from here:

People were underwhelmed by this library? Really? It doesn't get better than this in the software world, in my opinion. If you need better than this, go buy the hardware.

thanks rich, but that's not what i meant to say. i haven't had anyone say they didn't like the full set, just that they thought the demo programs i provided didn't do a great job of showing how good the full set actually is. if there was a way to do a time limited thing or something where the full effect could be shown, thatd be really great, but instead i'm stuck having to find ways of crippling the programs while still giving a good impression of the full library. it amounts to picking a few settings and limiting the demo to just those, and those settings may or may not resonate with someone trying the demo. it's pretty tricky to try to predict..

That's good to hear Tim. I would have to hop on a plane and find the people who weren't happy with this... So now I can stay home. Yay.

Not sure where the split is for the new A/B packages. The manual mentions 4 vectors... to achieve Comp, Limiter, Combo1, Combo2, and Pass-Through(s) A-D. Not sure what a /2 is doing. I think I overlooked something. Or is part B just the "Alternate" programs?

I am still blown away with this library. I never thought we would see a "fairchild" in Nebula that would also nail the actual compression.... This is awesome.

I would like to know what are the differences between the two sets.I'm still using the very first demo program and like it so I would like to know on which set is based.
