hmmm ... except that the curve response changes [shape] as the applied levels change.
I don't believe that using only the MAX preset with blending of wet to dry is the solution [though it may work for a particular use].
I've not worked the library as detailed as I will be. Currently I'm making VST Controllers to handle a library from a single interface. Several EQ's have been done, but this AIR unit requires some specific strategies.
I didn't like the mojo on the plug-in but in the other test below, it's another story, I don't regret the few euros spent in ...
I made a last test before Clariphonic DSP trial expires : kush audio plug-in VS Bidule (Plogue) including 3 instances of Nebula 3 (AIR Focus / AIR Clarity / Mojo for dry), the idea was to be able to insert the "Nebula AIR" easily as the original vst.
I never used the hardware version but I prefer the Bidule+Nebula version(thank's Henry for the nice job). It was a real surprise to me when I saw that Bidule+3 nebula took less cpu then the original vst, perhaps due to the jbridge on this dsp ? (I run Presonus Studio One x64 under Windows 7 x64 i5 2550K + 16gb + ssd).
So my personnal conclusion is : - Nebula "AIR" sounds better (probably less differences in real life, because you don't have to turn the knobs so far) - Nebula "AIR" takes less cpu (waiting for x64 release of Clariphonic DSP) - Nebula "AIR" doesn't need an iLok2 - Nebula "AIR" is a lot off cheaper (if you already have bidule and nebula!) BUT is not so easy to use as the original VST
except that when you use often you know what settings you have to load in Nebula
Nebula rules, Nebula learn you to work with a clean attitude, thank's to all developpers.
I have attached a track template for Reaper that replicates the hardwares signal flow, just put the audio you want to Klaritize on the 'Original Audio' track, add an 'AIR - Focus' preset on the 'Nebula - Focus' track and an 'AIR - Clarity' preset on the 'Nebula - Clarity' track and you're good to go.
You can adjust the level of the 'Original Audio' and/or either of the 'Focus', 'Clarity' or 'AIR' tracks without affecting any of the other tracks and you can adjust the overall level with the 'Klaritizer' track. Leave the others alone.
Feel free to hide the Phase Inverted (PI) tracks, or any of the others, to tidy things up a bit. If you want to hear what any of the tracks sound like on their own, i suggest using an action to toggle the Master/Parent send on the unwanted tracks. You don't get any glitching that way.
Update No. 2: Put the time adjustment on the correct tracks, oops.
The Presence_Focus presets come from the 'Clarity' engine (not the 'Focus' engine), so should be labeled just "Presence" in keeping with the others from the Clarity engine.
Also, just used Nebula Setups to create 2 new plugins, Focus - with all the Focus presets in it and the same for Clarity. Replaced those with the Nebulas that are in the template now it's even closer to the hardware.
Note: The track template has been updated, re-download it if you grabbed it before i edited the original post.
