Try clearing your vst scan cache. I have had issues with Reaper after updating Nebula before. I also have quit using the Reaper fx chain option for Nebula though, especially if it is single instances. I find it quicker to just load Nebula. You can also set up your own Nebula presets and rename them within Nebula if you have specific settings you want preloaded.
Thanks Faun. I have tried the SWS resources thingy. Maybe I'm just so old-school, but I like to load my plugins with a clean slate each time. It takes a bit longer to find the sound I am after, but when I used to use more preconfigured Nebula presets I had a tendency to rely on the preset settings and didn't tweak things. I am recreating some aspects of my all analog days, back when I would start with any piece of hardware at neutral settings. It forces me to do what is right for the part instead of doing what is easiest. Just my own oddity, I'm sure!
No not at all Richie, This is exactly how I use Nebula.
I use FX chains but they are just single instances set to default settings. It is the same as starting with loading a fresh instance of Nebula but say I wanted a N**e, I just type N**e in the box and drag and drop on to my channel, often dragging multiple bands of an EQ or if I want a 3.1 ratio compressor it's easy to search for this.
It's no different from loading a fresh instance but SO MUCH quicker and easier to do. No more do you have to first load Nebula, then click the browser, then select 4kd, then 44.1, then sub folder and then select from a list of 4 cryptic names! lol
Forthcoming releases on: Black Heart Label, Hyperdrive and Transfixion. http://soundcloud.com/100mg. 6 FREE Downloads on my soundcloud page. Nebula ALL over these trax!

Hi Richie ...
Maybe I can help, if you are on PC.
There is a, usually, hidden folder in the 'C:\\Doc & Setting' called 'Application Data'.
Look for a REAPER folder there.
Just add a new folder, call 'FXChains'
Then, either grab some of the pre made ones here ...
You should keep them in separate folders.
I also followed the idea of main folders, like, Consoles, EQ, Compressors, Pre Amps, Reverb, Tape, etc.
Thanks RJ, but I already have FX chains set up in Reaper, but not with the SWS resources list as Faun was talking about. He said that he can drag and drop chains from the resources list, and that sounds much faster than the typical fx chain folders that I currently have. Any ideas about this?
They work great. They don't release unstable pre-releases, you can use these with confidence. But Reaper without the SWS extensions just isn't Reaper to me. I forget that those extensions aren't native!
