Nebula at 64 buffer

Postby Puranon » Tue Jun 07, 2011 9:32 pm

How many are using Nebula successfully at 64buffer latency?

What default settings did you have to adjust?

Normal or Reverb DLL?

I've certainly run the reverb version down to a DSPBUFFER size of 128 samples, but the CPU overhead I measured was double that at 512, so I stuck with that so I could run twice as many instances of Nebula :lol:

minimum value is 128. We could remove this limitation, allowing 64 samples. But I think computers are still too much slow for that...

128 is the maximum latency for playing VSTI live thru FX. 64 is the normal latency for live playback since I7.

This is something i changed in xml , but is it really changing the value? , sounded like it was having a effect but of course it does not show on nebula when starting up. If you could remove this limitation it would be great .

Could you make a mod for me even down to 32 samples?

I just want to know why minimizing latency is so important.... Do you really need to track through the Nebula instance? I find it more productive to deal with tracking first (at the lower latency), and use Nebula in the mixing process, when I raise my buffers anyway. I am not questioning the logic of anyone's work-flow, I am merely trying to learn more and gain a better understanding. Is it really that critical to be able to use Nebula at the tracking phase of production?

Play VSTi from a MIDI keyboard with a VST reverb or/and Nebula...

I understand the function of this, I just don't understand why not use a CPU lighter effect at low latency, and replace it with the Nebula instance at mixing and at higher buffer settings. It is so easy and allows a person to keep the momentum and inspiration. But of course, this is just my opinion and what works very well for me. Other people have their own needs, I am merely offering a different solution that requires no new hardware, no new settings, and no "optimizations".

am I the only one who hears the difference between low and high latency's?

or maybe my setup is to blame ? :?
