Focus Comp is awesome, especially for drums and bass. The pre can get very bass heavy, but you have the option to flatten the curve and dial in higher harmonics as well.

Max also made a skin for it with very useful gui

AlexB - N09 GE Compressor/Limiter NEW skin



AlexB - N09 GE Compressor/Limiter

The famous classic Neve 33609 bus compressor is finally here with new skin!

The sampled unit is often called "Metal Knob”, which is a rare vintage device, an initial revision of the Neve 33609 hardware, with metal stepped knobs and a metal power switch, with a sought-after Marinair transformer.

The Neve 33609 is a two-channel compressor, with the same hand-wired transformers, and feedback circuit as the classic Neve 2254. The 33609 is the ideal compressor for the stereo bus on audio mixing and mastering applications. It offers a very transparent compression with its 1.5:1 ratio setting or can be slammed up to 6:1 to get as much attitude as you desire, commonly used on drums, vocals, pianos, and other acoustic instruments.



33609 uses a "diode-bridge" topology to achieve gain reduction. It is a stereo compressor with an independent limiter section, this is the most desirable version with the original transformers which sounds incredibly musical. It manages to sound clean but with the character without being weak and harsh. There is slight apparent coloration, just a maturity of tone, thanks to the classic Marinair transformer.

Thank you!
The next poll is planned for August, and I hope I'll be able to run it on time. I'll do my best to include WSW, as I can see a lot of great feedback about it.

Yes, it's in a single GUI, but you can't engage both compressor and limiter from a single Nebula instance at the same time. The Nebula rule: single program per Nebula instance is still relevant.

Do you have other EAR libraries with AUTs and SERs?
I had a similar issue recently. And to fix it I moved a file called addition.ser out of the main folder.
The addition.ser was blocking a lot of my EAR libraries for some reason.

Anyone used both N09 (AlexB) and S-609A (Cupwise) comp/limiter?

With Max's great new skin for AlexB's N09 metal knob comp/limiter (looks amazing btw!) I feel the old gearlust coming on to add to my nebula palette!

I already have Cupwise's S-609A which I think is based on the same device?

Just wondering if anyone had used the two and had any thoughts or comparisons. I am sure they are both quality presets, just wondering if there are enough differences to think of having both variants?

Don’t own either but having heard both and the hardware, imo, Cupwise doesn’t sound at all like the hardware that was used to compare while Alex’s is closer from recollection of the same hw unit. So yes, having both wouldn’t be overlapping sonically. Cupwise will excel on some sources and Alex’s on other.

Hey all I recently purchased Mammoth Eq and installed according to the manual. I can’t get it to create a SER file. I’m using N4 on a MAC. I’ve tried Protools and Mixbus 32. I’ve tried manually moving the files to the N4 folders as the installation placed them in N3, and also tried using the files provided by Ceejay…still nothing. I tried reaching out to AITB but I don’t expect to hear back for a couple days.

I have both, and each of them are fantastic. The 33609 is superb when used as a side-chain compressor. I find that if you're side-chaining drums, Alex's N09 is better as it really makes the transients pop in a very pleasant way.

Tim C's -S-609A is beautiful for side-chaining things like bass, vocals, etc, though its still a great experience on drums as well.

Truly happy to have both.

Someone on Max's Yt video of the N09 skin asked the same and this was max's answer, which i have no doubt is spot-on, so i'm sure @ ceejay is Ok with me quoting his answer!? :

"I'd say Cupwise version are more tweakable, since it has extended control ranges (beyond the hardware provides). It's more modern sounding, also because it's based on modern hardware revision.
And AlexB's 33609 strong points is authenticity (it's also based on earlier vintage hardware revision), and auto release functionality (which Cupwise library don't provide), which makes it especially useful on complex material and master bus applications."

EDIT: the Alex B is the original 'Metal Knob' and the Tim C is the newer revision.

I never liked Cupwise's compressors, getting good results was very difficult, possibly because of the extended control ranges.

I demoed Tim's 33609 but couldn't bond with it.

I bought AlexB's 33609 and it is a fixture in my mix bus chain in mid side via Patchwork. It sometimes finds other duties, but I have so many incredible compressors that I like to use the rest of the collection.

I had the UAD version long ago, but didn't get it like I do now.

They are in fact more difficult to set up and their number of several options can be confusing. But I think nevertheless TImCs comp (if you find a way, to work with them) are similiar to TimPs stuff top notch!
I´m in love with his C660, Raphylex and Lunchpail

Hm I like AlexB libs with EQs and Consoles more than his compressors. But with this new fancy skin... I should give it a try

I still havent purchased any Cupwise comps yet. But based on Ceejay's demo video 9k is a must. I also think the 660 sounds great, I can imagine its use in mastering and lunchpail very much sounds like API compression.

Mac users (as I suspect you are) need the special 64-bit installation package, different from that provided on the purchase. Just contact the developer via email: [email protected] requesting it, and you'll get the download link.

Thanks for collecting this info together which makes things clearer, esp that the emulations are of different versions!

I, and numerous other users have also had a difficult time with Cupwise Compressors - (especially 'Flucti-Mew, Lunchpail and The C660), due to the extended knob ranges not correlating with their hardware counterparts.

Because Nebula metering ballistics are unreliable, the GUI dials become the main visual point of reference, but the Cupwise compressor dial ranges are also altered, so it's very easy to lose your bearings.

I always thought it would have been so much easier for end users if each Cupwise Compressor GUI had original hardware 'range indicators' around each dial, so that users would know when we are "not in Kansas anymore".

It's probably too late to change things now, but below is a rough mock-up of the visual 'indicators' I'm referring to.

i can't say i could understand how having the extended ranges would make someone completely unable to use my comps but i have no problem with max adding something like that to the GUIs. usually the extended range would be something like the original release could go up to 2 seconds and i made it go to 4. if you're using 3+seconds release and not liking the results it seems like it'd be obvious that maybe you're using too slow of a release so you'd adjust it down. they always have readouts telling you the timing..

but i'll try to focus on getting the info to max so can do this for them soon!

I think it's good to have extended ranges (more options for different situations)!
I can understand people who have used the actual hardware perhaps having some goto knob positions for certain situations and the idea from Frellin' Smesh of having indicators on the GUI to inform when passing into extended territory could be a win-win in this regard!

SRC Issue

Hi All,

I’m having issues with Nebula and the SRC. I’m running in 48k native sample rate but when selecting some 96k libraries (third party Alexb or TimP) I would get some high frequency loss.. in the range of 4-5 db.

If I run a 48k library on 48k native I have no issues and also 44k.. no issues.

I know some libraries don’t provide 48k, so I would have to run at 44 which seems to work fine.

If I try run at 96k native with 96k library there is no issue.

Do you know what could be causing this issue, it looks like it could be a sample rate conversion issue.

Any advice would be grateful.

Thank you

Did you try raising the RATECNV parameter to the max?

If not, go to N4 xml and edit the value to this:
<RATECONVERSION> 9000000 </RATECONVERSION>
Save, an see if it helped.
