Absolutely agree, and I have plenty of algo compressors. On vocals it is just stunning.

Out of curiosity...Was this sampled off a Fairchild 660 or a replica?

it's certainly become my favorite itb compressor. i haven't delved into many of the acqua plugin equivalents of nebula libraries simply because i already have become acquainted with the nebula platform and made adjustments to my workflow accordingly. having said that, if this library were acqua-ized, i'd be first in line! :D

Tim I just bought set A. Will changing the AHEADLENGTH and LTIMED effect the behaviour of your Rayphlex (set B) soft knee? I am using just one Nebula.dll.

Furthermore, I use the Rayphlex on vocals and complete mixes, I suppose the fairchild can be used for the same purposes? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks in advance for your time!

I've tried 660 on the across the buss and didn't like it. It tends to be a bit cloudy or something.

It works best on vocals I think.

no, it shouldn't. but it still might be a good idea to make a special instance to use just with my compressors, that has the modifications to the .xml i mentioned in the manual. i think if you have a lot of libraries, you find that it is better to have some of them use separate .dlls anyway.

i think the 660 can be used in many situations but you might find that you like it best in specific ones. maybe on some mixes you might like it on the mixbuss but on others not. rayphlex is probably more of a general purpose compressor compared to this one, but i've actually had some people say they use this on everything also..

Just bought this a couple of hours ago and I'm loving it

Slapped the Limiter program on the mix buss set a slow attack medium release and about 2db gain reduction and sidechain filter at 125 and I am blown away how good it is. I have used lots of hardware compressors with these setting on a mix buss and this is doing it for me.

Absolutely agree Sneaky.
I only tried it on one. Mr Cupwise is a genius for sure. I vote we make him the official compression developer for Nebula.
