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

just to confirm this is a comparison with the UAD 1176 new version - not the hardware the U*******l A***o hardware was sampled from?

Yes your correct a digi version not sure which one. The samples are purely show distortions produced by the low end. I'm happy to recieve any samples from units. Most 1176 will be of a similar sound (distortion) despite all the different versions.

The original sampling was from a hardware product. Yesterday I added a new feature to the set, so samples will follow.

Just a little update here...

The new version is now being tested! V1 will be taken down off the website tomorrow,for the next version! If you want to get this at about half price you can buy this now. Release v2 date is not confirmed.

The new version is simply stunning!

Expect price to be around the £17 mark.

this is a great update.

One of the best - if not 'the' best nebula compressors Ive tested. All down to Tims exhaustive tuning of the programs...
