The FATE COMPRE - Now available for purchase!
Free demo version:
To be released this weekend
Finally one of the most classic compressors in the world hit the Nebula world:
The 2254 (aka Fate Compressor)!
Designed in the late 1960s this unit is still highly sought after. Once you experienced its unique sonic characteristics you cannot get it out of your mind.
We are proud to make this classic “fat” and “round” tone now available in your DAW.
Enjoy the sound of the 1272 class A circuit (as used in 1970s N**e consoles as well) and let it thicken up your track!
Please read carefully!
I'll quote from the manual:
Nebula is not ready for the "perfect" compressor emulation yet. But on this compressor we were able to find an incredible compromise. Even Fate Compressor is behaving different to the original hardware in some cases, you will get an outstanding sounding compressor, that is providing the tone that is the big N-company so famous for.Do we have a perfect emulation of an analog compressor now?
The answer is: Yes and no!
No, because as far as time constants are concerned, Fate Compressor could
be different to the real hardware for certain sources/settings.
Yes, because finally a software compressor arrived, that sounds like real
analog hardware: Fat and 3D - not harsh, flat and 2D.
Now 4 really important things to know:
1) To take most advantage of this release you should use Nebula3Pro (CoreII engine). Other Nebula versions still provide the same sonic characteristics of the hardware, but different (and wrong) timings.
2) Only 44.1KHz is supported officially so far! The whole unit has been sampled at 96KHz as well, but the support and behaviour of Nebula's envelope followers at different samplerates needs further testings & improvements
3) This release will improve step by step as Nebula does. This is just the initial release! The first update will be focused on 96KHz support. ETA is depending on Giancarlo's spare time. But we do our best to keep things going fast!
4) Please ensure to buy this by upgrading to the "Fate Bundle" if you already own the "Fate EQ". Vice versa: If you deceide to buy this one, you could get the "Fate EQ" for a discount price in the bundle later as well!
Ok, now have a great time and enjoy a nebulized version of the grand-daddy of diode-bridge compressors!
