Nebula ,How close are we?

Postby Tim Petherick » Tue Feb 08, 2011 8:25 pm

Been using nebula for quite sometime now and getting great results , even better now i'm working in 96khz and 96khz programs.

So question for third party devolopers-

How close to the samples to the actual hardware when a/b between the two?

"Special Note: About the Audio Demos: "20HZ-FLAT-P-N.mp3" is flat, then the Pultec hardware, followed by the Nebula version. "100-BOOST-CUT-P-N.mp3" is the Pultec hardware followed byt the Nebula version. We hope that you will find this treasure to be a welcome addition to your collection of programs and find it useful on everything from sweetening high end to warming vocals and tightening bass response."

Depends the Nebula sampling model type, but 3rd developers are delivering about 80% to 95% of accuracy. Never 100% due Volterra test tone rejects noise and some behaviors are not sampled by NAT.

I prefer CDSM's W295b to my hw pair - he obviously sampled a unit in better nick than mine ;) Less noise too. (Though the w295b isn't too bad in the noise dpmt)

I agree with Enrique here, this damn thing is so close that the 10-20% difference (difference doesn´t mean better or worse) is less important than the engineer decisions taken on a mix or master. When I mix with nebula I feel I´m using real hardware results-speaking.

Greetings and sorry for this strange english I´ve written
