If you are interested in console go to:
http://www.alessandroboschi.eu/html/en/ ... ngroom.htm

You have one mix done there through different consoles (ITB also).

I used it to decide what would suite my needs.
MTC and MBC were my favorite, and when I listened to MTC
something clicked in my mind and decided to go for that one.

I hope to get them all someday.

Thanks. I'll probably do that - or wait for the MLC scheduled for release in january. Meanwhile, I've found the free A*I programs to be just preamp and EQ (is this correct?), which I don't need.

There's no Nebula channelstrip program.

Ah akay. I have several console libs, my favourite is the VBC (vintage N**e). I never play or mix metal btw.

You don't need Nebula pre an eq programs? You are using outboard?

No, I just find the Nebula EQs too fiddley and the compressors too limited. Although that experience is from a couple of years ago. I use Ableton Live's EQ8 and T-Racks3 opto and 670 vintage compressors instead. Saves CPU too.

Edit - you asked about pres. Well, my recordings are already post pre, both my own (through a TC Konnekt) and drum samples. I figure I don't need to run them through another preamp stage. At least for now, I want to concentrate on Nebula console and tape stages.

Ah flat plastic plugs. Think it's time for you to do some research over here ;-)

Well, I have them dialed in for this project already. Maybe in the future.

Have you actually used the two T-Racks3 compressors?

The Fate compressor by analogue in the Box is an incredible compressor for Nebula.

Ive always found that after I have carefully gain structured and rendered all my tracks with the appropriate Nebula Console Line or Mic Pre programs that I need to use very little eq and compression on a mix.
