New Cupwise Compressor Release- 4k Crush

Post by Cupwise » Thu Sep 20, 2018 10:00 pm

Hello again everyone! So I've finished a new compressor. This is nearly the last of a big batch of comps I sampled way back in early 2013. This one is kind of a sister release to the Slick 9k I released way back. I want to point out that I have special bonus programs that allow you to transition between hard and soft knees, which isn't possible with the real hardware. I found myself really strongly preferring settings about half way between the two, for things like kick drums. It's not a subtle thing either!

For this release I also paid special attention to the harmonics, because the samples I took got somewhat saturated with higher amounts of gain reduction, so I really wanted to capture that, which can be tricky with Nebula. I think it came out really well!

As usual there's a kind of introductory price sale offer for the compressor, which will probably be up for about two weeks. Also, the summer sale I had going on some of my lesser known releases is still going, even though I meant to shut that down by September. But I also really wanted to have this compressor out, so I could mention that sale for one last week in a new thread. So, I'm extending that site-wide sale for one more week. I'll probably also go through and put some of the other items on sale too here in a few hours.

hope you like it swan.

i think i should probably comment about the skin(s). i made them myself. sales have kind of been on a decline, so i didn't feel that i should spend money a skin. so i took the opportunity to do some graphical work myself which i've always wanted an excuse to do because it is fun. it's obviously not skeumorphic in style, and i could have spent extra time to learn some tricks and tried to make it at least look like some kind of hardware, but it would have took more time since graphics aren't really where my skills are. instead i just made something that i thought looked interesting, and still is in my opinion the most important thing- functional. so you should definitely look at the skin before buying, maybe you won't like it, but it is what it is.

just felt like getting that out there since i'm sure it will maybe be a bit eyebrow raising to some, since it's so unusual.

So any comments on the sound?
I did not see a demo and I am not that familiar with 4k comp sounds so some descriptions/reviews would be nice.
