G, are you saying that the original compressors would not compress at -18dBFS input signal?
I'm sorry, I'm a little bit confused here. I thought that one of the ideas of using Nebula (and after Nebula all Acquas) was basically treating input signals as if they were going to an analog gear, therefore you (AA) and all third part nebula library developers (i.e AlexB) would recommend to mix hitting Nebula at -18dBFS (0dBVU). So my question is: did that concept has changed? Shall we now hit Acquas at higher input levels? Is that the way we should work now with compressors? (or that's just for Gold)
Please understand that some of your customers, like myself, are musicians and producers (not sound engineers) that love the analog flavour and love what Nebula and Acquas add to their music sound!

I want to add to my last post that I'm very happy with Gold's EQs in general. All of them add this fantastic sound to any sort of instruments (overall on drums and vocals!!) I'm really impressed. This plugin is a game changer for me.
Preamps are just amazing and they really add that creamy 3D sound to my mixes.
I agree, although, that an imput trim would be really helpful in order to work easily with Gold's compresors.
Keep up the great work!!!

Yep the pres are lovely too.
An input trim would be a nice addition to the comp, agreed. But I gotta say I love those. Slightly colorfull, I find, on the lower part of the spectrum, I'm really digging, I focused first on the eqs and the pres, but the comps are a great surprise.

Yes, input trim controls on the comps, we're not being capricious, it's a simple request so we can make better use of the plugin, and use it on more situations. It's a desperate shout from your customers for Violet and Gold. Please AA!

But this is something I have in my plans. Both acqua and nebula will have something decent. Sorry if the priority is not as much high as it should be, but there are urgent things to fix (website, delivery) and several things heavily requested
In 2016 we improved knobs, during 2017 we'll improve meters
Yes preamp meters should be set to -18, not zero. We decided to set the zero point because the original devices are used often above the 0dBu. We could change it thought
...and where is the delivery of the new AA website already announced for 2015/2016? :D

Aquas i like are: Lime, Gold, Pink2412, Amethyst2, Honey

Violet already have an input trim. Without that would be impossible to use it.

I always hit Violet with 0VU and have to crank the threshold all the way and turn the input a little bit to compress the 2-4dbs I like. Very weird calibration, but, other than that, perfect plugin.

You're right.

Hadn't really been using Violet since it's release.

Gold comp is the one in dire need of an input control.

it happens also on the original hardware device (violet). Basically there is a very low ratio, so you need to move the threshold quite a lot.

Excuse me for this question, it may be a dumb one but I have not understood it by reading the posts on the thread, please let me know how to do it.

I just bought Gold and I don´t know how to install it because I can see there is an upgrade file apart from the rest of expectable files. May I install everything but the upgrade and then the upgrade? Or different way?
