Hello there folks. I'm really interested in buying Nebula 3 but I've been holding off until 4 drops. Since it's been a while since it was announced and there appears to be no clear sign of when it'll be releasing I might just buy the 3 Pro Bundle.
If I decide to take the plunge and buy Nebula 3, will I have the option to upgrade to 4 when it releases or will I have to pay full price?

Both products line-up, Nebula and Acqua Effects use the same Acqua/Nebula framework. Acqua Effect assembly/routing should work in the Acqua Effect itself and also in Nebula4, but we need to check it one by one in order to provide our customer a full working product.
PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF FAKE KNOBS ON A COMPUTER SCREEN!
They will be (and all the other 'gear centric' styled GUI's), completely and totally laughed at within a few years time.
It's a gimmick that has so long ran its course.
How much development is actually spent on skinning and GUI that could be spent on the audio side? How many support layers is the company digging into with various OS requirements for that?
Can we just get simple, clean, scalable, vector based graphics layer and forget about trying to make it look like hardware?
Trying to get software to look like hardware, MAKES IT HARDER TO USE!
Not only that, increases the lines of code required to support a massive backdrop, tying tiny little pictures to the GUI, and wrapping all that to another OS's specs for displaying it on your computer screen.
Does that make sense? Lot's of extra and unnecessary resources are spent on something that doesn't enhance the audio in any shape or way, and pigeon holes the user experience.
Plus it completely dates the technology.
Knobs on hardware make sense, not in software. I don't want a knob that has beautiful 3d shading.
I want a knob or slider that is clear to look at, and scalable depending on how large or small of a screen I'm working off of.
Cool thing about this system, it should be very easy on the user front to customize their preferable GUI. Instead of having this walled garden (having a user need NAT, scripting languages, etc) to change the basic interface layout.
This is such a requirement due to the huge variety of libraries out there.
I'd kill for a Valhalla slash 21st century NASA computer vector based graphic system for Nebula.
FL Studio and H******* Mixbus pulled it off.
Clean, flat, scalable, simple, user-friendly.
That stuff will be classy for decades to come, and much easier to support.
