Great so this only works with the latest PC version? Sounds like a nice feature (as is 64bit!!!!!!!) but us Mac guys can't try it. Seriously loosing interest with Nebula! When can we expect the next Mac update. A rough indication of how long and not just "yes i know" or "soon" please :|

ok, i just tested patching a little bit for about one hour.
the patching process itself is quite easy and straight forward but if you would try to patch all files in one or two steps you'd have to prepare them beforehand to know exactly what is what and make no mistakes (as pointed out: backing up before is mandatory!)

there are some problems, some programs are missing (not recognised by nebula after patching, i couldn't determine a system or logic), even within the same library. the whole process is not very transparent. i would only patch library by library and always check afterwards if everything is there and nothing is missing. some programs do not work properly afterwards, the labeling inside nebula is missing (i didn't even check if there is sound because i know i couldn't use it anyway).

what was disappointing to me is that it's not possible to have internal sidechain and gdrive at the same time! that would be very nice with compressors.

for me some things do make sense others not so much.
for example it's nice to be able to patch alexb compressors, but i also had a daw-crash with the 4k comps (quite unusal on my system, but maybe it was just an initial thing).
it's very nice to patch tapebooster!
most of the preamps i tried were faulty to some degree.
i did not try to patch the consoles because i render them before mixing and don't use them later.

finally i reverted everything back to the backuped files. i probably will patch some libraries i mentioned again (alexb comps, tapebooster etc.) but at this point it was just too messy for me and i was happy to revert to my working system and spent no longer time with it.

all these experiences confirm my first notion that it would be much better to get the updates delivered by the library developers. i don't think it's a good evolution if nebula becomes more of a specialist adept tool for geeks than it already is!

Sorry to hear about your patching woes. I am a mid-level geek, and I only had a few issues with the patching. And the ones that failed were easy to spot. I have some patched compressors and preamps uploaded on Dropbox, here are the links. Just unzip these and take the patched program files for anything you have purchased. They all work on my system, and so far I haven't heard of any disasters from other users.

hey ritchie, mid-level-geek, that kinda describes my status too. don't get me wrong, i could have finished it all easily, it was just too long-winded and cumbersome for me at that very moment (was not in the mood to sit there longer than one hour to avoid some mess). and as i stated i simply think this kind of diy-mentality is the wrong way to go for nebula.

thanks for your patches, i remember looking at them some time ago, but certain libraries i checked had a different file count compared to my original ones so i refrained from replacing them.

I explained those 2 patches previously. One is for preamps (only particular preamps based on a particular template, which was used a lot), and one is for compressors (most of 3rd party compressors because they are based on the sample template)

So I don't understand your request, gdrive patch is not for compressors.

The patch numbers are sometimes different because as Giancarlo said, these are for specific things. I didn't necessarily do entire libraries, but they ARE safe to use. And as long as you back-up your n2p files first, which you absolutely should do anyway, try them. If they don't work or you don't like them, replace them with your back-ups. Simple copy and paste. And by the way, it took me under 20 minutes to make all of these patches, including the compressing and uploading to Dropbox.

gdrv is for preamps, not compressors. the internal sidechain is for compressors.

the thresh control in compressors is almost like what you would get if 'gdrv' did work with them. gdrv would increase your input going in, so a lower signal would hit threshold level and start compressing. but that's about the same thing as just lowering threshold. so there's really no reason to have gdrv in compressors.

i would imagine that if you tried to patch everything with gdrv, including compressors, that would have been part of your problem/reason why they didn't all work.

gdrv=not for compressors
