I´m happy knowing that the guide can help you in your personal work with Nebula.

Thank you for the tip Enrique ;)

may I suggest a highpass/lowpass in the beginning of the list and a master reverb somewhere (only applicable for mixes that are too dry which is very frequent nowadays)


This might be in the master buss, the step just before the mastering tasks. In that part is also usual use hardware like eq´s/compressors/enhancers for apply in the general mix. Due to you are interested in it I´m going to include that part in the post too.

also, if using the HO Apex Aural Xciter, it works best in parallel than in serial (too much of an effect in serial)


It´s better the Trascending Music emulation of that hardware. Well, really it´s A LOT OF MORE better.

- thank you - really great the triodes/pentodes tip in serial.


It´s very usual, the hardware most used for this is the Cranesong Heed 192.

This is based in the psychoacoustic theories where you work int the harmonic content of the audio for change the general perception of the sound.

Agree, but as the HO Apex was in your list as a serial effect, it was just to underline kindly that it wouldn't work.

then we need someone nebulizing it :)

Good to see the Decca hybrid eq in the list. Super rare units those. Rebuilt by my friend to perfection!
Yes they do get used for mastering indeed!

Thanks

Thank you very much for the info in this thread. This would deserve to be a sticky.

How would a mastering chain for orchestral music look like? Probably a bit shorter?

You are welcome.

Oh,well !;) I´ll make the guide in pdf format then.

I don´t know, but it would be a more short chain like you say. The guide is more for a pop/ rock production.
