it is kind of confusing at first but it also kind of makes sense. if it were the other way, and it said 'stereo' when it was in stereo mode, then 'noobs' would wonder how to go into mono, thinking the 'stereo' was just an indicator. the best would probably be some kind of switch that shows both words but points to whichever is on, but that would be a pretty serious gui overhaul i'd guess.

I totally agree with this. Nebula, with it's novel technology and wealth of excellent libraries, is a very special plugin. But the interface is confusing and clunky. I think a re-design would breathe some new life into Nebula and maybe open more peoples eyes.
Things like the normal/econo confusion are indicative of a programmer mentality, rather than a designer/user mentality.. believe me, I know, I work in the games industry and this happens to our in-house tools all the time. I love programmers .. but they are unusual beings
Is it worth spending precious development cycles to change? I'm not convinced. It's easily enough explained regardless of whether or not it's counterintuitive in and of itself.
With such a tiny development base, Nebula development is a zero sum game: spending development cycles on one thing inherently means not spending them on other things. So it's worth being choosey when it comes to feature requests.
