I don't think 'sample pack' will change CPU load once the Preset is loaded. Regardless of what SR you're running, the only 'additional' load will happen when a different SR Preset is loaded. It will be internally converted. From there it'll running at session rate.

For me, the main improvement I am looking for when this sample rate pack is finally released is the speed of the sonic switching between samples. As it is now, there is quite a long delay before I hear the change I've made, which is usually just enough to take me out of the moment.

What is the eta for the 48-88 deliverables?

I've been experiencing the same issue with Purple (Trial) and I'm glad I'm
not the only one...
Using Purple in a 48Khz project leads to much higher CPU load than e.g. Pink, Pink Compressors or Magenta - not so in 44.1Khz.
This becomes more apparent when the Projects overall CPU load is high,
e.g. high track count and lots of other plugins.
I HOPE the new sample pack will solve this, if it does I'll buy it instantly.

Nebula/Acqua engine 1.4.084 solve quick movement problem in steeped knobs on Purple P-1 and Purple M-5.

Frequency pack was delayed due a sample rate recall error but is also fixed, so we will provide update installer with Nebula/Acqua engine update soon as possible.

Seems you are taking about Purple P-1. Correct? Read page 13, High Attenuation, in user manual.

Yes. It says only about Attenuation knob, but not about 'Atten Sel" 3-position switch. I know the hardware Pultec has the same, but I never work with it.

It sets the frequency for the high attenuation shelf (5kHz, 10kHz or 20kHz).

Here are two quotes from UAD Pultec EQP-1A manual:
"HF Attenuation Frequency
This switch (ATTEN SEL) determines the frequency of the high frequency attenuator.
Three frequencies are available: 5, 10, and 20 KCS."
"HF Bandwidth (Q)
This knob sets the proportion of frequencies surrounding the center frequency
(determined by the KCS switch) to be affected by the high boost" - it looks that originally "HF Bandwidth (Q)" knob works only for boosting, but not for attenuation.
So what about Purple? The manual says the Bandwidth knob controls High Boost/Cut section

This is great to know, thank you!

I'm looking forward to it.

Hi, when do you think the new 48/88-version will be downloadable via the Dashboard?
