i got this in my email today, not had time to try it yet, but it could be an amazing way to turn nebula into a multiband plugin in non modular hosts like cubase. if anyone gets good results, please leave some comments:
"Dear DDMF user,
today (yes, on April 1st I proudly present to you DDMF's new piece of software, the Metaplugin. It is a bit different from the current line up since it is not an effect in itself but capable of loading other VST plugins and routing/interconnecting them in all sorts of ways. Create your personal effect chains, specified to your needs, and save them so that you can quickly dial in the sound you need in future projects. Build your own custom effects by using existing plugins as building blocks! To get you started, a flat-summing 4-band crossover filter and a Mid-Side matrix plugin are included in the package. This means you can instantly create multiband and mid-side versions of just about any plugin on your harddisk!
The demo version is available on http://www.ddmf.eu and will not save effect chains. The full version is, as always with DDMF, totally overpriced and will cost you a whopping 15 $.
Limitations: Waves plugins will not load. Feedback loops are not supported. A Mac version is being worked on."
But this raises the issue, at least with the version of NEB3 that I'm using.
PDC does NOT seem to be either working or correct within WaveLAB.
I have noticed that each 'render' that I do with NEB processing will cause a shift of the start/end of audio within a file. Before I really noticed, a track I was working on had the ending cut-off. Now what I do is add the WL silencer plug to the track to extend the file length ... but this is not an elegant solution.
for what I know, wavelab doesn't compensate latency. I don't know if latest version introduced a fix on this matter. It's the only steinberg product which doesn't compensate, the development team was different.

According to message threads in the WaveLab forum ... and from PG himself, there were some issues ...
There [was] a bug concerning latency compensation, that was fixed in 6.01. Maybe this is the explanation. 6.01 is ready, I just wait for Steinberg to put it on line.
This quote was from conversation about a WAVES plug-in issue that another user reported.
WaveLab DOES have 'latency compensation' ...
As to Nebula ... I can say that something is not being correctly reported. The more NEB's in the chain, the more 'offset' of the audio WITHIN the audio file. To the point where the audio file will have a larger section of silence at the beginning ... and the 'ending' of the audio CAN get cut off. I hope that this can be addressed.
