About the original hardware
This library is based on a Modern German Tube Compressor which is loved by many for its versatility and outstanding audio quality with the musicality and user-friendliness that this company's units stand for. It finds its application in Mastering, Mixing and Recording. Discrete, very high performance gain cells were developed for this compressor and are used instead of the usual VCAs. This compressor is the first product to use them. They ensure the highest level of musicality and clarity in signal processing and demonstrate significantly improved distortion values over VCAs.
Audio characteristics and features
This is a very precise, transparent, pleasant sounding and musical compressor, which is very versatile and can be used on a wide range of tasks in all kinds of musical styles. You can use it on single signals like Vocals, Drums, Guitars, Brass, Piano, Bass, Keyboards or on Busses. And it's also very good for mastering.
This library features extended release times which go beyond the original 2 seconds to up to 10 seconds. Also included in this library is the Decompression function. It works the exact opposite way to regular compression and can be used to expand the dynamics of an over-compressed signal back to where it originally was. Another example would be removing some room on Drums.
The "HQ" versions offer higher quality and use the TIMED engine while needing more CPU power. The "SC"-Versions enables you to trigger the compression by an external sidechain for side chain compression/decompression or De-Essing. For more information on how to do it, please refer to this forum thread.
The "HP"-Versions use an high pass filter for the trigger signal internally, so you can make the compressor react only to frequencies above the high pass frequency, this parameter is called "Range" in Nebula. The "NC" versions provide the most accurate compression behavior and can only be used with Nebula Compressor (Self modified copy of Nebula). The "NC SC" programs are "NC" versions for use with an external sidechain.
