Anybody successfully running Neb 1.3.492 (latest non-experimental version, I believe) on a Mac at 24/96? And if I may ask also. does anybody know if it is OK to run an earlier Neb installer over an existing installation without de-installing anything first? Many, many thanks for any comments.
Thank you Scooter! I will try that. With regard to number of instances, previously on my 8-core I could basically run as many as I wanted. After the 1.3.492 "upgrade" however I couldn't even run three! Sad. Something changed radically, but I am only a customer, not a developer, so I have no idea what (and really don't care to know, not my gig. Just want it to work). Thanks again, really appreciate the help.

Thank you G. I will try that in the studio before downgrading to earlier version, as I have done on my laptop. I do miss the drop-down menu on the newer version now that I have gone back to the older Neb. Just FYI, when i look at System Profiler while attempting to play a Logic project with enough Nebula's to crash it, there is an initial huge spike of disc activity that causes the problem. The actual CPU usage is very low. I think it is the initial spike that causes the crash. But I don't know why, or what that means. Just an observation. Thanks again for your suggestion, I greatly appreciate it.
Mac user here; clovertown-8 core, 10.6.7 At very low latencies (32 samples), there's not much fun. When I increased Nebula to 8192 and Logic's buffer to 1024 samples, things started to get really interesting, cpu-wise. Only the response is getting sluggish.

I'm going to be studioless for a few months and plan on picking up a Duet 2 so I can at least demo and mix on my i5 MacBook Pro. Bummer that Nebula for OS X doesn't have the performance that it does for Windows!
