Hi takboo good suggestion that I am sure will help some people but I'am not on cubase so still scratching my head.
I've emailed Tim as he said.
Thanks for taking the time to suggest something.
EDIT
Just a quick update. Tim has been in touch but meanwhile a couple of other non-related programs are not working correctly which has nothing to do with Nebula and is a Windows OS problem that I need to fix.

thanks

what the meters should show

Post by olshalom » Thu Dec 14, 2017 11:14 am

Hi Tim,

I just finished a 12-Track-Album using this comp quite alot on kick snare overheads and drumbuss. As well a group of horns.

I love the big attack. it makes sounds huge and can make accents in a musical way.

The only thing is, the reduction meter does not show what's really going on. What means, it already compresses without showing on the meter.

not a big deal, so i adjust by ear and don't care about the meter.

What should be selected in the Nebula-Setup or xml-file for meters?
Is there anything to care about or to adjust?

As I said, a fantastic release of compressor in the digital-world.

Kind of a 2.5k release with its sidechain curves, auto-release and soft-knee settings would be great.
And i belief you are the right guy to do that!!
Cause that's a missing link. I have this old release i think of gemini-audio. but it seems to be done much better!

All the best from Austria,

Oliver

no there's nothing you can adjust in the xml files for the meters. you should check out my next post about the update i just released and see if that might solve your meter issue. the way you describe it seems a bit weird to me, so if the new update doesn't fix it for you, you should email me (use the contact form at my site if you don't already have my email).

thanks, glad you like it. for all intents and purposes this *is* my 2.5k. i believe it's close enough. as for the sidechain curves (assuming you mean the switchable EQ curve on the hardware), that can't be done in nebula. acustica can add things like that into their acquas but there's no ability for me as a nebula dev to do anything at all with internal routing or anything. all i can do is use the built in HP filter for the sidechain. nebula used to allow for external sidechains but that got removed too, for whatever reason. oh and the auto release mode stuff, that's something that theoretically can be done in nebula but it's very hacky to get it working. i had a working model for it several years ago for another comp, but made a change to it and broke it, and didn't feel inclined to spend the time to figure it out again. i've kind of planned on maybe going back to it, after i release all of the remaining comps that i have already sampled (about 4 more). then i might look into it, and if i can get it working well enough, i might implement it in all the comps that i sampled that had a mode like that. i think since then acustica have also added some program dependent functionality into nebula (or maybe it's just in acquas), so it might be easier to do if there's anything like that in there that i can use (i'm really doubting that though). it's just not a priority right now.

There's a new Lunchpail Compressor update. You should get it by email if you bought LP.

This update fixes an issue with the harmonics (in the full and SHQ programs), and fixes an issue that only applies to Nebula 3 pro (or lesser versions) users.

The harmonic fix- when using the makeup gain control, the harmonics' levels weren't being increased along with the fundamental. They should have been. This fixes that. You want this fix because if you are using large amounts of compression, which typically require large amounts of makeup gain to compensate, with the old programs your harmonics would be 'reduced' in level in that situation.

As for the other issue- It's been brought to my attention that the meters don't work in the custom N3 skin, when using Nebula 3 pro (almost surely also true for any version of Nebula below that one also). It works fine in Nebula 3 server and N4. The reason is because acustica updated Nebula a while back, adding two additional FUN slots, FUN9 and FUN10. You can't see them by going into 'edit' and 'fun', but they are in there, and can be used by devs. The problem is they didn't add them into any Nebula versions below Nebula 3 server in rank. So if a dev uses those funs, their programs won't function correctly in Nebula 3 pro. I just assumed the additional funs would've been added to all Nebulas. My gain reduction meter code was using FUNs 9 and 10, hence why it wasn't working in Nebula 3 pro.

This update fixes that.

You should get this update no matter what version of Nebula you use, for the harmonic fix. If you use Nebula 3 pro or lower, this should also fix the gain reduction meters.
