Well i was going to start a new thread on this ,but worried that it might get confusing to new users.
nebula regular to me sounds better than reverb version for eqs, tapes and pre sort of sampling ,i don't know why this is.
In general you want to stick to timed rather than freqd for higher quality. That also could mean switching off split mode because the first part of the sample is played by timed then the rest is freqd. For example 2.2ms on timed then the rest on freqd.
If you wanted to play the same length sample in timed as freqd , say the original was 50ms in freqd, you could edit the xml to go up to 50ms
If your working at 96k your computer will probably
thus why nebula has the split feature to bring down the cpu.
A high quality Rendering mode would be good as just mentioned. oh and the change to evf 17 should not effect cpu .
If you look at cdsoundmasters Q8 and tube booster on the evf page , they use evf 17, so its not just for compressors!!

YES. EVF 17 is the last EVF mode developed. If you have a nuclear PC you can use more and more TIMED engine, we add FREQD engine just to play long kernels from EQs/Reverbs in current PCs. You can SAVE AS programs (N2P files only) from each emulation program with different name before edit in NAT or in Nebula. Maybe Giancarlo can make a patch for auto edit in NAT, request to him...
Envelope follower in Nebula An envelope detector is sometimes referred to as an envelope follower in musical environments. It is still used to detect the amplitude variations of an incoming signal to produce a control signal that resembles those variations. Nebula use an envelope follower to translate incoming amplitude audio signal into a value that help to select the correct kernel that will process the incoming signal with the correct filter but this filter has a length that is more than one sample that is the reason that Nebula or any signal modeling processor can emulate correctly a peak limiter with out introduce audible distortion.

One could set "Split mode with 10ms kernels on timed and Evf17" as render mode.
Can I assume (CPU costs apart) that this is the best nebula setup for every preset? And... is better (again CPU costs apart) using nebula reverb all the time instead nebula?
I asked about this because I felt some transient loss, and with these tweaks it sounds SO much better. I think the initial transient of a sound is the most important for separating things in a mix and also for really feeling a room in drum room microphones etc...
I don´t understand all the parameters in Nebula but it seems to me that when (in Kern page) you set timed to 10ms and point the arrows to Freqd you get timedplayer for the first 10ms and freqdplayer for the rest, so the critical part of the sound is processed by the most accurate player.
I felt when doing this tweak to VXNT plate reverb there was a difference in the reverb "impact", glued better with the source in some way.
Im very happy for all the help I have got. Thank you!
