Complex will have the attack improved slightly.

For now I will keep experimenting with harmonics!

Hi Tim,

you are doing a realy great job. thanks for that. but this comparing with uad is not so good. uad is winning steps ahead. but please go on, you are on the right way.

yes. :)

I think the distortion is getting much better, I'm dealing with a side of nebula that didn't used to be that good! Keep in mind this is demonstration of what's possible.early day's.
I like the nebula version in terms of smoothness. It's really slapping on slower attacks.

I think it's getting better as well. I know this stuff is purely subjective but to me Tim's distortion breaths more and punches more where as the UAD one, although nice, seems more like a representation of the signal, pushed back rather than sounding alive and dimensional.

Important note: don't forget to level match at the rms level here. Since distortion helps with that, that is what we truly want to examine in comparing these two. It is about -5.4 dB needed on the uad file
