In any case, if you like supporting small developers and don't miss looking at spinning reels, ReelBus and ToTape2 are good options. Below are a couple of files I made from the original drum sample:

ToTape2 (x2- it's a subtle effect):

Hi yr,

You can download the media files I used from here:

They're 32bit/96khz files.

I'd love to hear ToTape2 on those stems.

Sure, below are the stems. Each track processed as is twice, with "Head bump" on 0 and "Treble soften" on 0.5570:

I think this plugin misses 2 controls- "saturation" and "noise"...

But but but... For the realism I need to admit that Nebula is my favorite but I need to admit that I'm now using both of those plugins, I used Slate Digital VTM for the mixing and Nebula for mastering. I love both for different reasons ! 8-)

I've not been using Nebula much recently because I'm working with tight deadlines and have to mix as I go.

I've bought slate VCC and VTM as I can just add them and keep working,whereas with Nebula I have to get into mix mode, i.e. up my buffer sizes and be 100% certain all my parts are finished and nothing needs adding.

Unfortunately with my current projects I don't have that luxury and this is where nebula's workflow doesn't fit with the mix as you go necessity.

when i need to go fast, i mix with algo-plugs and put a tape or console-program on the masterbus. in almost all cases it makes the mix more defined and adds a subtle 3d-impression.

I'm finding I like additional saturation placed after Slate VTM, so a couple of instances of tapebooster and/or metric halo softsat on the mixbus sounds great. Will leave and re-visit in a few days to see with fresh ears if its a little too much but like it in initial testing. I think a similar feel could be achieved with just nebula but I find the linked input/output to be so useful. I am in agreement with the above - where time permits Nebula is king but sometimes speed and inspiration is more important than getting an absolutely optimum sound for every source in terms of the best finished product.

I have never heard anything in Nebula that did not impress me in some fashion, however I really like the Slate GP9 half-inch @ 30ips. I also really like the GUI. The 456 tape and slower speeds don't appeal to me.

Actually, I was mixing a project that was rather thin sounding, and the 456 tape at 15 ips was just perfect. So, I stand corrected, there are uses for all the emulations in the VTM, it depends on source.
