What's your DAW? Are you using Logic?

And more importantly, what's your audio interface?

Hey FrankydT,

I use a multiple of hosts for Nebula, Logic being my main DAW on both systems but everything from Audiofile Engineering apps to Audio Hijack Pro to Numerology, etc.

I usually test Nebula in Logic and Audio Hijack Pro first then verify as I go along in the rest. In the case of my symptoms with 1.3.492 the symptoms remain consistent across both machines with at least four different app's each.

I just sold my Apogee Duets and in the meantime am using basic Core Audio+Built-in audio Line outs on both machines until replacements arrives. I have over 500 plug-ins working fine (and some pretty intensive ones at that like GRM realtime) so nothing points away from the completely isolated symptoms of 1.3.4.92 (typical day might have me running eight instances of Alchemy through Slate Digital Console emus, Altiverb, Aether, McDSP compressors, assorted fx and Ozone...AND several Nebula programs running 1.3.467, all live with no hiccups).

Oh, in the case of Logic, 9.1.5 32 bit on both systems.

OK. So not that Damn Agera's Firewire chip.
First: Check Eventual Permission errors.
Then:
-Check if you've installed MacOSX 10.6.8 Supplemental Update
-It's better you change booting to 64 bit, Logic and OS
-Check in Logic Preferences-Audio that compensation is set to ALL
-Increase Process Buffer to Large and I/O Buffer to 1024
-Open an EXS24 Instrument, open Options, Virtual Memory:
Set Disk Drive speed to Medium, HArd Disk Recording activity to extensive, optimized for more au instances.
-Uninstall Nebula (ALL, every folder)
-Reboot
-Install Nebula 1.3.492 then the UPGRADE 1.3.499n
-Reinstall Libraries
I hope this will help you

And, I forgot, try loading ONLY Nebula (On an audio track, No instruments or other effects).
And on the Audio track, set to NO INPUT (It's Important!)

Thanks FrankydT,

I will try MOST of your helpful list (except the 64 bit Logic as there are known problems for apps/plug-ins I own and running that way) but do appreciate the suggestions. It will take a few days to run down them all (to do it right) but will do so and check back when done. And FYI, my main system is the 10.5.8 Mac Pro so the 64 bit options are not there.

And thanks again for the extensive suggestions and your time :)

Happy to help you, Logic Brother. Not many on this forum I think.
I also own a quite big collection of plugins, (Soundtoys, Waves, Blue Cat, Crysonic, DMG, Native Instruments, Motu and many many others) but I suggest you to remove the ones you don't use. Use only THE BEST you have.
(For every task.)
Too much becomes a mess, for me. (And less free hard disk space)
Anyway, I've no problems with plugins at 64 bit now.
(Yes, some freeware, but these are free - no support)
Last thing, upgrade your RAM and hard disk (don't use internal for audio files), use Logic's Buses for plugins and CPU sharing.

On Leopard if nothing above works, try download ZDNet Clock.
Maybe your CPU is not powerful enough.
It's an overclocking utility, Leopard-32 bit only
But use it as last resort!!!!

Totally agree. 32 bit bridge is terrible.
