I need some input from users running Win7 x64 with an x64 DAW. My experience with Nebula 3 (x32) has been a bit of a letdown since testing the Nebula Free x64 product. I'm wondering if I can expect noticeable load time and latency improvements using Nebula 3 Pro x64 within a total 64 bit environment like the one I have?
Loading time depends on that if you need to convert samplerate such as 44.1K to 96K and vice versa, or how big the sample is. As for the matter of latency, it can be reduced but simultaneously it increases the consumption of cpu resources instead.
Working with Nebula requires a big change of work-flow. I never use it for tracking or any low latency scenario, even with a powerful computer in a complete 64bit setting. It is a huge CPU hog, but nothing is like it in the ITB digital realm.
Thank you for your responses. Ironically with my system (i7920/6GB), my CPU barely reaches 12% using all 8 cores. It's the load times that are discouraging. I'm hoping the x64 optimized Pro upgrade will at least show improvement there, and maybe improve the overall feel of the product (like Kontakt x64 did when I was able to use that).
I know it's not a lot of money, but in making the Neb3 to Neb3 Pro upgrade, I (like everyone else in this economy) wanna make sure it's money well spent.
