New release Sum 100a V1 leveling amp

Post by Tim Petherick » Sat Aug 30, 2014 12:49 pm

A industry standard modern vari mu leveler. the classic ratio changing gain reduction was captured giving a more subtle compression character on low gain reduction. On High gain reduction it is still has less obvious compression than your average compressor. This makes the Sum 100a very easy to use. Sounds fantastic on vocals as well as giving great ambience lift to drums etc. Presets come in all sample rates within one pack, 44.1, 48, 88.2,96 I recommend using a higher buffer for these presets 1024 and 1.0ms ahead time in the master page.

This is V1, so a good chance that this library will be updated in the future, which also means a price increase later. Of course if you get it now, you will get free updates.

ClickHEREfor purchase!

ST=this is a category label for stereo

MN=this is a category label for mono

FB on preset names=added extra feedback style presets that does not reflect the hardware, this means no makeup gain slider as the evf is interactive with that control.

Clean on preset names=no distortion kernals

Only £9!

Seems very interesting!
Is it possible to post some vocal samples dry and processed to have a listen?

This is one of the magical pieces of hardware that we have been told for years that Nebula "can't do". Tim nailed it, this is really nice. I will try to post some samples soon, and also try to say more than "it's awesome". But for now, I can say that it is super smooth and does the La2a "thing" quite well.

Maybe so, and there is always room for multiple versions of similar hardware, we have always seen that in Nebula. But right now, (TODAY!!), Tim Petherick has a stunning 100a V1 Leveling Amp library that Nebula users should know about. Tim has been one of the leaders in terms of quality for a long time now, and I hope users are aware if this and support his work. Too many small businesses can't stay afloat when not enough attention and support is funneled their way. I am sure the new Acustica products will be awesome, and surely there will be threads of great praises here. Until then, I am loving this compressor library!

Wow! This thing is fantastic! 9£ is a steal. Just tried it on a very dynamic vocal and it just grabs it and controls it without any artifacts as far as I can hear. Great quality. Gonna try it on other instruments.

@ Tim: Could you please say some few words about the different programs? There is no info in the zip-file or on your web page AFAIK. Does 'FB' mean 'feed backwards'?
What is 'sum'? I read through the manual on the summit page, but couldn't find anything about this.

Programs in 44,1 kHz:
Sum 100a - 1 kernel
Sum 100a Clean - 3 kernels
Sum 100a FB - 5 kernels
Sum 100a Sum FB - 7 kernels

I added some more info for you and others interested. To be honest I finished this library A little while ago and forgot I made the extra feedback presets :lol: Hope that clears it up!


A note to all customers

I noticed one or two of the FB presets were not set up properly. I amended this at approximately 30/08/14 at 11:45pm (london time)Please download again if bought before this time.

Many thanks for your support,

Tim

Nice! This thing is about as smooth as 12 year old whiskey on piano. Haven't tried it on vocals yet.

Nice work Tim, Nice work.

I think he was trying to say that nebula wasn't able to do this before but because of the later developments that it is now.

Yeah.... I sorta figured that after I posted that, but decided to leave it up.... So "oops Giancarlo"..ha ha :oops: . I just got all hot under the collar making sure Tim got his well deserved glory. And of course, without the huge advancements "under the hood" with Nebula, this sort of library would still not exist.
