Yes, I know that nebula should work using the fxpansion wrapper, but that's not a solution for me or a lot more guys. No one trusts the vst wrapper. It causes problems with control surfaces, introduces CPU spikes, you cannot use the compare button...I can tell you it's something totally different to work with a real rtas plugin. I just realized that when UAD showed up with real rtas support for their plugins. I just started to use them again and it's pure fun. Come on guys, nebula sound fantastic and just take a look on gearslutz. Everyone at least knows nebula, but the whole protools community is not in will to give it at least a try as long as it's not a real rtas plugin.
Let's be REALLY honest... Sell PT and go for something else (as I did). RTAS is a thing of the past.It has already reach is limits.TDM is overpriced and you're stuck with it's fvcked up converters...
And yes I think that PT is not the best platform for Nebula (as you see on every forums).
If I remember Enrique works with PT and as a Nebula guru he might help you find nice settings to make your life easier with it.
Just test a couple of DAW & open a couple of Nebula instance in them.Just test it yourself.After that,decide if it worth the learning curve or no.But do it yourself...and judge.You'll know what I'm talking about...
PS: I ain't got any problem with AVID.It's just that you ask us to be honest
I sold my Hd3 a couple of years ago; couldn't be happier! Since I've discovered that Nebula is working great with Reaper (which is highly underrated, I believe), I'm starting to learn Reaper more and more. It's all worth it. Logic doesn't unload plugins, nor does PT. So no rendering and mixing in those 2. Furthermore, PT doesn't let you save channelstrip settings, so you have to make new chains with every session, and importing session-data is a bit pointless to me. PT is a dying platform, very slowly over the years. I'm not kidding.
dpclarkson- i could not agree more with your comments and stance.
Reaper, no idea, I will DL tonight.
Logic- love channel strips and plays nice with OSX. Great writing tool, dependable, solid. Summing is not amazing and audio editing is inferior, but usable. Try stripping DC offset for example- click, click, click.. some old code in there, from the prosoniq guys I bet. Mixes sound muddy- my bad. I've heard some pretty amazing stuff mixed out of Logic, just not from me.
PT- Just spent three days reinstalling and then deciding to jump up to 9 from 8.05. What a little bitch PT is. Nothing but issues. I have $$$ in RTAS so I stay in the game. Audio editing amazing, summing in 9 is as good as Nuendo. Outstanding. Mixes have clarity and mid crunch. My mixes anyway. Wrapper works fine with VST to RTAS.
Nebula does not actually WORK with the latest version of protools. I am dead in the water till something is fixed.. Its currently the only plugin I am having troubles with on this new version. It may well be something to do with the wrapper , but the fact is I have a Nebula server which is useless inside the current protools
Ok...I did not expect to see lots of PT friends in here I've really tried every kind of DAW. I came from Sonar, and I realized that it sounds stressed the more plugins you insert. I really tried every kind of DAW and I've really got to say, it's the same with every native DAW. I really love PT for what it is. I don't want so save channel strips or whatever. Every song is a new song.
Let's get back to topic. I don't want to start another DAW war Thread.
Maybe we shall start a a thread on DUC. I just can't understand why Avid keeps ignoring nebula. Maybe they want to protect their other developers
btw: My biggest problem with the wrapped version of nebula is, that it introduces blasting noise randomly when I stop playback. Sounds a bit like a buffer that's being emptied. I just own nebula2 but it's the same with the nebula3 demo.
