Hi there I just bought Nebula 3 Pro and some generally recommended third party programs from Alex B, CDSoundmasters and Analoginthebox. It absolutely rocks!!
If I have a fast computer with a lot of RAM, do I still need to change the RATE CNV to 3200 or higher - and does it make any difference if I'd work in 44.1 or 96 kHz? I am asking this, because everything (lots of instances) is loading and running effortlessly, with the stock values on the MAST page.
ETA: Despite what I say below, I say your best bet is to take the advice and set the RATE CNV to > 3200. There's very little downside.
As long as the conversion is successful at your current RATE CNV you don't have to adjust that parameter. I think the thing to look for is on the PROG page where the original -> target sample rate readouts are. If you see a blinking ( -> ) arrow then the conversion was not successful.
I think the reason 3200 is suggested is because it seems to work well with a variety of different programs at a variety of different sample rates. But I've run into a few programs (those old Lexi91 from nebula-programs I think it was) that 3200 wasn't enough time and I had to increase it for them to make certain conversions (while other SRCs worked ok on those programs at that setting).
Thanks for the explanation! Yes I also see what you mean with the arrow when working in 44.1 kHz, it converts succesfully now. I just registered (it says customer now), and it seems to sound even better after registration, not 100% sure though...
When it didn't convert succesfully from 96 to 44.1 because of low CNV RATE (it had the blinking arrow) the Tape Booster + caused a dip around 12 - 15 kHz. Didn't sound too bad though This dip disappeared after succesful conversion to 44.1 kHz. Strange.
Just read the Wiki and the FAQ, still no user manual though...
i guess now is the time to ask a question i've had, instead of starting a new thread for it. i've had trouble trying to get some of the verbs sampled at 44.1k to upsample to 96k, no matter if i max out the rate cnv setting. i hit reload and they just refuse to convert. is there a solution for this?
well, there are a lot of verbs in there and it would take quite some time for me to go through all of them seeing which load and which don't. it actually seems though that a lot of them don't, so it wouldn't take much time to find ones that don't. i might get around to finding some specific examples but i'm kind of busy lately. it's not really a huge issue for me as i don't use the verbs too often. plus i might try mplay's suggestion, although he says it doesn't always work.
