but nebula already does this. and it's not from an algorithm, it's actually sampled from the hardware. you said 'subtle saturation' that you can barely tell is there. well nebula samples up to 9 orders of harmonic distortion on top of the fundamental. if you ever looked at a harmonic graph of distortion that's so subtle you can't hardly tell it's there, you would surely see that probably before it even gets to the 8th-9th or 10th order harmonics, they are either below the noise floor, or so quiet you couldn't possibly hear them. so nebula can capture that.
i'm assuming that by 'saturation' you were referring only to the distortion aspect. the slight compression that is often associated with 'saturation' that can happen from over-driving something, when that's kicking in the effect isn't really going to be 'so subtle you can barely hear it' anymore. but- nebula can do that too. at that point the harmonic content might be significant well above those 8th-10th harmonics and that's where nebula can't go. but then you are talking about full on distortion you definitely hear.
That was a little OT, but still, how many computers would be able to run that effectively? I welcome the improvement, but I am MORE than happy with Nebula as it is (ESPECIALLY compared to... well anything else). So uhhhh, I'm going back OT!!!

But... its... not... an... algorithmic plugin

I tested all saturation libraries from Nebula devs, + the G drive. It's quite there yet.
So you "don't talk about a Huge saturation effect" But also, you're "not talking about a saturation sooo suble that you have to convince yourself that thee is actualy some saturation"
So you don't want a HUGE effect, nor a subtle effect. You want something in the middle? I'm sorry, I just don't know if I understand your post because it doesn't make sense to me, as is anyway. Anyway you could clarify?
I would like to have saturation/drive as in driving a mic preamp really hot, but without the dreaded 'Nebula-clipping'. Satson and Airwindows can add some nice drive, but it takes an extra insert. Just a little tedious. Nebula already drives a little bit, but it doesn't really 'bark' yet.
Ah, understood. Not that I speak for anybody else, but my guess is that it WILL be implemented, it's only a matter of time. Right now we can't sample, say, a distortion pedal or a high-gain guitar amplifier. But we all want to! haha
Someday, someday... Patience is definitely a virtue in this regard!
