Running everything in Nebula Reverb

Postby tbentley » Sun Mar 27, 2011 9:38 pm

Can we run all programs in nebula reverb like eq, compressors and have the same results as using the regular nebula.

I don't think you get the same results though ,

Just listen for yourself.

I keep going for the regular nebula for most things like pre's, tape's compressors with the mod used for compressors because it captures the transients better to my ear , don't really if this is correct but it sounds like it too me and you can the diference's more easily between programs .It's also a cpu killer.I do the same mod to the reverb version too , for saturation and sometimes eq's.

I'm know way saying this is correct but to my ears it sounds better.I may change my mind next week. :lol:

I think it also has a major effect on the way I hear the eq's too

Prog rate in xml ,i took down to 25 at one point

I'm not sure what i'm hearing ,But do you think there is less of a delay on the saturation side with the prog rate super low?.Everything sounds more uniform and together , perhaps tighter.Or is this impossible?

Could giancarlo give us an explanation of this maybe?

I read if you make the prog rate to fast you can introduce aliasing ?

Wouldn't it be easy to test?
Just put the same audio on two tracks, open nebula on one, nebula reverb on the other, load the same programs on both, flip polarity on one track and listen.
If there is anything else than silence, you have a difference.

yes, you are perfectly right. A superfast nebula is much better on the dynamic side. The only issue is aliasing. If it's too much fast you are introducing unwanted distortion/aliasing.

Just got my GTX 590, if you need somebody to test nebula with cuda updates let me know.

Are you guys talking about "Rate CNV"? What is "superfast"? What is the proper setting to avoid aliasing and still be dynamic? Thanks.
