Anyone who has ever wanted the ultimate tube compressor that can bring a vocal forward, add a little air, hold the dynamics in place and add a size and dimension to the audio without that audio getting cloudy can now realize their wildest dreams!!! This Vari-Mu compressor embodies all that is good and right with tube compressors that actually use the tube in the gain reduction circuit. Two units sampled: the Balck Mix Compressor with stock Siemens and NOS Amperex Bugle Boy tubes, and the Red Mastering Limited Edition compressor with NOS Mullard and NOS Telefunken tubes.
Carefully sampled @ 44.1kHz and 96kHz, without introduction of noise or aliasing, in a professional recording studio with custom converters built specifically for NAT3 which outperforms $20k commercial converters. High end cables, with particular care to the connections, levels and impedance matching were used to translate the sonic qualities of this priceless devices into the Nebula software technology. Every volume change, gain change, frequency change is tested and accurately programmed without destructive digital processing for optimized sound and then compared to the original device. The result is a virtually indistinguishable digital replication of this landmark device.
The programs don’t sound processed, harsh or digital as most plugins do, but instead sound like a natural extension of the original audio, gluing your tracks in the mix with an analog vibe.
