The Finished Sound

This was the main VCA compressor/limiter for disc cutting in the vinyl era and from the late 1970´s to 1990 it was used on 90% of all record in that time.

The unit has been completely refurbished and returned to the original as new conditions. This technical intervention restores the unit to the original sound and it can then rightfully be called “vintage”. It's the same sound you can listen on thousands old hit records.
The most critical, and most difficult task is to refurbish the unit without making changes to the original character and sound. This is achieved by the thoughtful choice of the right electronic components, and expert skills and experience in electronic engineering.

 

 

The programs:

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.

  NOTE:
Nebula can't work with very fast att/rel. without to lose the hardware sound, the same for squashing compression. If you need these behaviors please use a good transparent plugin compressor to tame the transients and to crush things followed by this library to make the sound. Please note that even in the hardware if you crush the compression then things sound bad. I prefer to not trick Nebula to go fast/crushed and lose the sound.
