NEW COMPLEX compressor/limiter released

Post by Tim Petherick » Wed Jun 18, 2014 4:23 pm

My first commercial compressor release! I had my reasons for only releasing limiters until now

So-


Late 70's mono drum slammer, this can be used on other sources too but just maybe more preferable on percussive instruments.It scoops the low mids on greater gain reduction,can be great for compressing and cleaning up at the same time.

The presets come in Basic versions and extra Features versions. The main reason for this is that I feel the side chain and the ahead in nebula adds a touch of it's own sound to the presets even at zero. I've decide to release all sample rates (44.1,48,88.2,96) in one pack, so you can experiment with various sample rates.

Basic Programs are the essential controls Attack, release and threshold. Features Programs version adds HPF, AHEAD and dry to the presets control specs as follows, release approx; .015-1.5 sec, ratio; 1.25-20.1, hpf; 0-200hz, AHEAD 0-6ms .

tips on use- For this set use nebula reverb instance Nebula's ahead should be set to 6.0ms in master page, if you can't see master page functions you probably need to change the mode from 0 simple to guru. changing the ahead to 6.0ms means you can get full use out of the ahead slider for clamping down on transients (note- * next to parameters in master page means save and reload to take affect). Use a MEDIUM buffer setting for features version, I say this because nebula seems to get strange and miss of attacks on lower buffer settings when ahead is used.

free presets available on my website with a ratio of 3:1 and 4 kernals

Only £13 at this time-

What would you like to hear?. I mean I guess I did brute the drums on the samples I made.... the 20:1 ratios are extreme. This was to purely show that the timings were close.Maybe some more subtle compression would be what you want to listen to?

Thanks

I'm after lighter compression settings.It sounds good for a 20:1 compression but I never use such extreme settings.Just like the dry version better on the Punk drums example.I have to play with the demo program

Ok

If your looking for lighter I would sat this is not a light compressor! :D

But anyway I will have some other compressors that should be better for that sort of thing...

this is a really excellent library - it can be subtle if you use the 'featured' version - and mix in some dry - or use it in parallel...

Also it has the lower ratios which are more gentle.

But to be honest - this compressor spanks. It sounds so good its difficult to use it lightly! Can really make a snare pop out of the speakers...its hardcore.

*___* I love this SMACK! 5:1 ratio are really good for drum room!
Just now compared it with UAD Fairchild MKII on Room track and want to throw FC away. Smack, sustain and character.
Awesome job, Tim!
Sorry for my bad english =))

I hate you all lol I should just leave a copy of my credit card with all of the developers and just let them bill me and send the new releases, no questions asked.

Did somebody say smack? Are we talking more smack then Micheals 160a compressor? Like distressor smack?

Hmm... Maybe i should say something different from "Smack".. Dunno)) Maybe CRUSH :D Just wait for Tim sound clips and you'll hear what i mean ;)
But it's definitely sounding better than FC for ROOM)

David, i've used 5:1, 6k, Attack 30%, Release - 0,10-0,15, threshold -20, HPF - 100, Full ahead, No dry and it was perfect =)

If I'm not mistaken it is ADR Compex 2
That device best for drum room mics & drum bus duties. Also great for guitar.
