REQUEST
I need a short tutorial for logic audio 9 and sidechain.
I'm able to create a surround track with L-R and Ls-Rs, nebula loads there (we support 4 inputs 4 outputs configuration)... but how can I assign Ls-Rs inputs coming from an other track?
I explain it better: how do you use standard "quadro" compressors in logic audio, for example the "glue"?
Do group tracks exist?

The first who answers will test nebula sidechain in logic.....

(and if nobody answers we'll not support/debug sidechain there :D it's up to you :D )

btw client and server versions already support sidechain, I debugged them. Also VST is working in mac osx. On AU side I'm going to test logic audio (I'm waiting for answers eheh) and I should fix a little things in reaper/AU (because tracks are loading as standard stereo tracks instead of 4-2 ones like in vst world).

Hi giancarlo,

For logic side chain, i usual do this:

I place a kick or hi hat on audio 1 (name the track sidechain). Set to no output.

Audio 2 or instrument 1 (pads or synth) with an Logic compressor insert. Click on the top right of the Logic compressor plugin and select the side chain.

Adjust threshold etc. I usually use the peak instead of RMS.

Hope you find this useful.

Cheers

sorry, you are late. :roll:
I'll not spend other time on this thing.
What I need now is 2 testers who bought the snap compressor from analoginthebox.
They should be able to use quadro channels too and they should know how to route them. Nebula is exactly like the glue, so just google the solution for the proper routing.

If you are ready contact me via email, I'll provide 2 previews for testing, one for pc and one for mac osx.

On VST side we support mono, stereo and quadro/stereo.
On AU side we support mono/stereo, stereo/stereo, 4 inputs/4 inputs and 4 inputs/stereo

quick instructions:
I'll provide the reverb version for windows and both vst and au for mac osx
you should copy this new preset, which is snap compressor 2:1 SFS
If the channel is configured correctly you'll see a little Q blinking (in reaper you should make it 4/2 even if the Q is blinking).
Now route the signal to 1/2 and the sidechain (control) signal to 3/4. You'll hear obviously only 1/2 compressed by 3/4 events.

edit: only first 2 will have nebula. I'll reply to other ones simply with a "late"

edit: for pc I'll provide only 32 bits version of nebula3 pro. So you should be a nebula3 pro owner.

PLEASE backup your files before overwriting them. I'm not providing complete installers, just the plugin to replace.
