I am thinking of investing in a 64bit PC-server to host Nebula. My main machine is a Mac Pro 8core, 3ghz, 9 GB RAM. Can I use the PC-server as a host for my mac? I couldn't find that much info about the pc-server version. If it's possible, it would be great to have extra external dsp, without choking the mac. Are there people doing this already? If so, what kind of 64bit PC-servers would you recommend? I really like the idea of having multiple servers with gruesome amounts of RAM in a 19inch rack!
Hi my friend .... I'm using nebulaserver, and is very good. I not use mac and not know how the nebula in mac...Working with pc, core2duo for protools, and corei7950, for nebulaserver. I do not have 19inch rack, actually my desk is a rack, pc parts are mounted inside my table studio... well ... I decided invest in an extra pc, because instead buying protoolsHD that was my plan, and buy liquidmixHD... discovered nebula, and I was mad to have more instances. I talked to giancarlo and I set up a server corei7950, to run nebulaserver. I own many nebulas and in projects of 48-channel, I do not use 60% of machine. I use many nebulas, without poverty. This story of weight of the nebula, is an exaggeration...for a simple machine logically that there will be a problem. It's like the movie from George Lucas, to have maximum it takes the maximum. Even if you mount 3 corei7950 for run nebulaserver, still cheaper than a protoolsHD with the graceless waves mercury plugins... Nebula for me is as the Lucas art industrial light magic... High quality from audio. My pc is as light as feather with protools and the other pc, is slave, nebulaserver run in more than one pc, you can have a network with 10 pcs. logical that this is a utopia...hahahaha there is money...I'm hard bread...I am satisfied with my corei7 as dsp. A big hug my friend and brother.
Hi himhui ... Looks like it, I think am...Nebulaserver is a perfect balance for a smooth workflow. I read several posts on workflow, and observe that users want a plugin to load as a wavesplugins,or any plugin common. Nebula is a complex technology, requires a good sense of User. Just put the cost of the product together with its quality, worth investing in a new pc. the Avid Digidesign, is considered the maximum quality, and with each plugin heavier ,you must buy more dsp... With nebula in any system you have an equally perfect quality, not comparable. A machine corei7, with neb server, yields much and the workflow is quite large. Working with protoolsLE and I have friends who use protoolsHD and do not believe in the work I do with nebula... they found in nebula, amazing quality, leaving their dsps access, finger sucking. There are sacrifices investment of User, because as said... Even if you mount 3 corei7950 for run nebulaserver, still cheaper than a protoolsHD with the graceless "waves mercury plugins", that is not there these things. It's a case to rethink, I know money does not grow on trees, more spending can be justified with quality work. Do not think that I love to spend money, I am very economically controlled, bread hard to be honest...hahahaha but with this new system, I can say that it was worth every penny. A big hug to everyone.
