Re: Cupwise release- Casspressors A

i'm sneaking a little heads up in right here. my cassette deck 1 set is about to get a pretty big update. 1st, the 'hi' and 'lo' versions of each effect are going to be combined into one program. i couldn't do that on release because of artifacts due to an issue with tapes and nebula, but i figured out a way to solve that issue when i did cassette deck 2. this means i can get more dynamic steps into a tape effect without the artifacts. 'hi' and 'lo' from CD1 get combined, and also get 'gdrv' (trim) added which will be more useful when there is more dynamic range. many of those effects have freq responses that change a lot depending on the input so this is all a pretty big improvement, in my opinion.

then, ram and hard drive usage will, i think, be cut in half (as with my tube fm1 and 2 updates). actually ram will be the same per effect, but you are getting twice as many dynamic steps, so it's half the ram per step. in other words, the size of the whole set is reduced by half. 3rd there will be 4 new programs/tapes added, sampled with lynx.

it's a big update and i'm calling it Cassette Deck 1+ on release. having to split the dynamic steps in two made me devalue the set a little on initial release, so the set will go up a few dollars when these updates come out, maybe to 14-15$ (from 12.50$ where it's at now). all current/past customers get the update free, so for anyone who ever considered the set, now would be the time to get it and save a few bucks!

edit- actually to sweeten the deal a little i'm going ahead and lowering it down to 10$ until the update...

so just ignore everything previous in this thread since it's all pretty much obsolete info by now! :lol:

I've just updated this pretty old library and I believe this will be the last update.

Here are the updates:

* Frequency response jaggyness reduced, the same as with my recent Cassette Deck 1 and 2 updates.

* Dropped the 'A' from the original library name- "Casspressors A". I originally thought I might do more of these, but I really doubt it now.

* SHQ versions added, with increased frequency response accuracy.

* Programs are using the more recent method I've been using in my compressor programs, which is faster and more accurate.

* Impulses have all been looked at and edited by me. Fixed lots of little minor issues, too many to list or remember. End result is the dynamic behavior is a little better.

* Moved to a new category name in Nebula, CT (TC, for Tape Compression).

* Completely re-did the attack/release behaviors of the programs. They now use 4 different sets of behaviors, taken from 4 of my compressor releases, and which are using the most up to date adjustments (the Rayphlex attack/release behavior is updated).

* Set each program to use different detector types as well as feedback/feedforward signal ratios for the detection path, to increase variety in the sound across the effects.

* Got rid of all of the alternate programs in the various sub-categories. Now there are just two programs for each sampled tape effect. The main one, and a secondary version, which uses alternate attack/release behaviors from a different compressor than the first one, as well as different detector modes, and feedback/feedforward signal ratios.

* Lots of harmonic samples were removed, which had no actual impusle (it had fallen below the noise floor). Some kerns were removed too, when the harmonics just weren't contributing anything.

* Added Wet/Dry control. It's pretty cool.

* Probably lots of other things little that I don't remember.

Thanks Tim, downloaded and had a quick test. These are great sounding as usual. SHQ programmes are a total no go for me though CPU wise, even on my brand new alienware monster spec desktop. Is there something I need to set first? What system do you run them on and do they play fine?

i think i forgot to mention that the manual has been updated, but the SHQ answer you seek is covered in the new manual. they're like the SHQ programs for my comps.
