Is it possible to use Nebula preamps or other plugins by AA while recording (for example vocals) ? I know that UAD offers their Unison Technology for tracking. Is there a way to use such a method with Nebula or AA products?
well nebula and acqua sounds much better to me i used pink new single band yesterday and it was awesome in ZL except ShMod wouldn't show me its parameters so i had to go with my ears only but it still ended up being very cool using in ZL hehe
i haven't used unison though with uad since i dont hawe an apollo so how much better changing impedance is compared to run UAD in low latency with a PCI-e card i don't really know, i have a feeling its not night and day in difference but it would be cool with some info from apollo users on this
but everything algo so far cant compete with nebula pres, mics and a incredible amount of other tools to my ears, im not saying UAD cant be useful though but i really dont like to hard print plugins to the audio personally
if i had really great hi end outboard i would run my vocals trough it hehe
i dont track plugins like people do with uad apollos though
i run them nebulas and acquas in zl when i track but leaves the opportunity to change something in the chain if i prefer some changes after the recording
i track live, so often i make slight changes after recording a instrument and vocal at the same time im usually not far off , but could end up changing how hot a pre preset i want or changing the distance with the HO Nebula mic im using on my vocal for example
but nebula gives me a wonderful sound while i track though to me that makes for a much better performance a good sound while tracking adds too feel and emotion witch is very important to me
a big difference is how many ZL you can run compared to UAD though
the uad take the win on an quad apollo for sure unless im missing something fundamental with nebula ZL tracking
i have dropouts in a 128 buffer size with about 6-7 zl instances even my CPU hit is very very low on 5820k
i always thought ZL would only cause dropouts when CPU get hits really hard
does anybody have a different experience than me with a CPU similar to 5820k with dropouts in ZL even there's no spikes in CPU and CPU hit is very low using Reaper, or any other DAW ?
is there a DAW that is better at particularly low latency recording with nebula and acqua in ZL at 128 buffer size ?
any input here would be greatly appreciated and it would be very useful information
i might even make a own tread for this ZL topic, so please dont arrest me for double posting this hehe
it would only get used to get the thread started
but lets see how this thread goes first
i think ZL tracking is a interesting thing to discuss
Recording with a Plugin does not depend on the ,,brand'' but on the DAW. Today with ANY DAW you can PRINT the effect while recording the outside tracks in the DAW. Instead of the monitoring Track Load the FX on the Input Track and that's it.
Prime Total, Nebula Server 3, Scarlett 3, Amethyst 2, Aquamarine 3, Titanium, Magenta 3, Navy, Sand, Pink, Pink Compressors.

how many ZL at 128 buffer size can you run basari ?
i expected to run much more of them with a 5820k CPU , im only using HO mics and pres so they are not hard on CPU at all i could even run a couple in ZL on my mac mini i7 so i did expect much higher numbers jumping from my old mac to 5820k, i have done everything to optimize windows 7 for audio too but even when CPU is barely touched i get crackles and pops easily with ZL using RME
on my mac that didn't happen before my cpu was hit hard in both osx and win boot camp
