This is my 2nd set of HP/LP filters, the first being Yourei A. Like Yourei A, I wanted to capture as much of the analog sound as possible, so again, I sampled these filters with dynamics. This is still a very rare thing in the Nebula world. The vast majority of EQ/filter related programs out there are non-dynamic, and for good reason(s). It takes a lot more time/work to do them this way (and in some cases it would be very impractical if not impossible to do). Having sampled dynamics in the filter programs means that for any position of the filter you select, you are getting a dynamic model of the unit for that position. With most EQ/filter libraries, the EQ/filter programs themselves don’t have dynamics and you are supposed to pair them with a pass-through program without filtering which does have dynamics, but this isn’t quite the same because it doesn’t give you the dynamic behavior of the unit for each position of the EQ/filter. The programs in this set do. How much of a difference this actually makes is up to you to decide, but one definite benefit is that you only need one instance to get the complete effect.

In this set there are two very unique Nebula effects. A spring reverb, and a tape delay. The spring reverb is unique among Nebula reverbs, because as far as I know, it is the only reverb out there with an adjustable EQ control, which acts kind of as a ’tilt’ EQ, from ‘bassy’, through flat, to ‘trebly’. It sounds HUGE on the bassy side. Then it also has a fade control which allows you to shorten the length of the reverb while keeping a nice smooth fade-out, and this is another thing that no other reverb (beside my Custom Plate set) has. Those controls allow you to actually fine-tune the sound so the reverb fits perfectly in your mixes. The tape delay allows you to select from 20 different delay effects, all in the same program. Each has different delay timings, some are single tap, others are double or triple, and they all sound different due to the use of different tape speeds and EQ settings during sampling. You can get some great vocal doubling effects. The feedback control is awesome with these also, allowing you to get dub-style mutating echos. View full article »
I originally released the Creamy 660 as one part which included everything, but I had some comments from people who bought and liked the set, that they didn’t think the demo programs showed off the quality of the programs very well. It’s hard to make demo programs that do that without giving too much away and I think in this case it was more difficult than usual.
So, I’ve decided to split the set into two parts, as I had done with previous releases. This way the price isn’t so steep, and anyone on the fence before can just buy one half of the set to get a pretty good taste of it.

The main idea behind this set is mostly for it to suit general filter/special effects use. However, I believe it can be used to get a more authentic guitar wah type effect ‘in the box’ as well. A fair amount of possibility in the set, means that if you are into filters, you should be able to get plenty of use with it. Based on 4 ‘specimens’. Sampling was all handled by Lynx Aurora 8.
