just finished a new update and sent out emails with the info to all customers. i'll be sending out another email with the links to download the updated library soon, so you should get those emails if you bought this. kind of an important update so you should get it. it's also very easy to install this one.

here are the updates:

*someone brought to my attention the fact that the compressor programs were all set to use mono mode! this was a mistake on my part. it's not *really* a big deal, all it means is that both channels were using the same impulses (from the left channel). now it's fixed and both sampled channels are being used. the difference is very subtle.

*the shq programs weren't using the maximum sampled lengths for the harmonic impulses. now they are. this makes them take even longer to render but the idea of shq is to be the very best, most accurate recreation of the hardware. the harmonic impulses had lower frequency content going out past the 2ms lengths that are used in the 'full' versions, so now the shq programs will provide that. however, again, this is very, very subtle.

*harmonics were completely redone using an entirely different 'system' 'under the hood'. the old system (by system i'm talking about the actual coding in the nebula program itself, and how it handles the harmonic samples) placed more importance on the input level coming into the compressor programs, to determine how the harmonics would change (increase/decrease) and react. the amount of compression you were getting didn't have as much influence. now both input drive and compression amount are equally important.

*harmonics were also re-balanced, and the levels are much higher than they were in the old versions (several db). much more reflective of the hardware samples i took. for some reason you can't really trust NAT (program used to sample and produce nebula programs) to just produce programs that give accurate harmonic levels, and sometimes you have to go in and adjust them 'by hand'. which is what i did here for this update (while comparing directly to samples from the hardware). so theoretically the harmonics should be more noticeable now, but you may not notice.

Just passing by to say that this compressor is just one of the best audio tool/plugin on the market. Transients are just oustandingly punchy... really...never heard something like this before...very impressive compressor.
Thank you very much for this beauty !!!

All the best

thanks phopho! i put a lot of time into the attack on this one, due to the hardware samples that i took having somewhat of a unique attack shape. flucti is probably the only other comp i put a similar amount of focus into the attack, for the same reason (it's different though).

Hi there,
I'am experiencing an issue already noticed: Gain reduction meter is not working correctly (like it is already compressing signal at startup or something like that) thus Gain reduction meter is unusable. Maybe i've not intsalled the latest version...can i have more infos about that please...is there a turnarround?
Thank you in advance.

NOTA: I use N4 (the latest version)

All the best,
Chris

my understanding is that this is a bug with nebula itself, and not with the lunchpail skins or my programs. that's what i've been told by JPN anyway, and my own efforts to fix that issue were just wasted time so it seems like there's nothing that can be done on my end. in other words, every nebula compressor has similar issues with their meters. at least, that's what JPN has told me. i don't have comps by other 3rd party devs but that's what i've been told. JPN has made skins for other devs so I've assumed he's correct. this means acustica would have to fix the issue..

you're talking about when the meter jumps up to show lots of gain reduction even if there's no input or compression happening, right? what happens though is that when you actually start getting compression, the meters become pretty accurate. it's only if you go for a certain length of time with nothing happening, no inputs and no gain reduction, will it go back to acting poorly. so the meter is only really broken when nothing is happening. when you're actually using the compressor it should be fine. you could even test this by running a steady tone into it at whatever level and dialing in however much compression, and checking the meter.
