alex, are these sampled native at 44.1 and 96 or resampled down to 44.1 by something like SoX SRC?
i must say all previous nebula sweeping analogue filters have sucked. if you looked at them in a analyser the response has deformed all over the place as you swept around. can anyone confirm these don't do that?
i would love to try the pre-amps on top of the DIVA emulations to see if it takes them to the next level
please more demos and feedback... having the demo stepped was a funny move as most people will want to try them sweeping... that's what analogue fun is all about i look forward to checking out the stepped demo anyway when i return to my music pc.
**EDIT i went ahead and bought the moog filter anyway. been playing with it a while and i changed my mind, i would REALLY like a stepped version of it with all the frequencies! Not digging the sweeping sound, but great for fixed frequency use.
how come the pre-amp makes everything louder? it makes it impossible to compare the results of it on and off. was that a mistake or is there a reason it has to boost the volume?
best use so far is with overdriving the actual filter (not preamp). you can get MUCH more distortion here. Its all there in the free demo of the moog filter, just turn the drive all the way up on a bass line with the filter freq as far up as possible.. wow
big request going out for a version of the program file that is stepped!

No, probably you enter with too high level. The line amp is fantastic to give reality and analog vibe at any VSTi. It is at unity gain with 0dBVU at -18dBfs as usual and it reacts dynamically at the input signal, as user manual says. The filter in Nebula is not dynamic so you can't overdrive it, you can use the "drive" to add fake hamonics but it wouldn't be the same like in the hardware.
I bought the whole package recently. I own some real analog synths and used to have a MiniMoog.
I mostly got them to run some softsynths and digitals through them for the colour and tone. Also make my Alesis Andromeda (a real analog) even more MiniMoog like, even if it does have chip versions of the Moog Modular oscillators, filters and signal path
edit - I had to change the output levels of the line amp programs - too loud! And resave them.
One thing AlexB - I dug into the Nebula menus and it seems to have envelope followers, LFOs, and envelopes so how do I use them to modulate the cutoff of these filter programs? Nothing seems obvious in Nebula - I tried but can't make head or tail of anything here....
If the envelope follower in Nebula works as I expect it to - it would be like a wah or dedicated hardware filter box, reacting to the signal level, and controlling the filter cutoff from it. Just the thing to smooth out the top end of softsynths in a dynamic fashion
