I agree with a 44k 'community' version that works in nebFree and a 96k version available to commercial nebula users.

As far as distribution, maybe a torrent? Cheap, fast downloads and everyone shares the bandwidth...


Torrents are a great idea. The only thing I see wrong with separate packages available for Neb free and Neb Pro is that the Bricasti developers are very serious about it being very good and very free. If the Pro users are the only people with access to the higher quality 96kHz version, than isn't that one (even small) step toward making a quality distinction based on what you have paid for? I am a Pro user, so this isn't about me. But fair is fair, and free means free. Besides, offering 2 packages makes more work for the devs who are not allowed to make money from this, so maybe we need to really look at this as a total community thing and decrease the work for devs, offer up the same package for everyone for free. Just my opinion, of course.

I would have to vote for the 'free to all' option. I think that is in keeping with the Bricasti developer's generosity and the Acustica manifesto of equalizing the toolsets available to all.

While I agree that torrents are probably the most efficient way to distribute a large library like this, among many in this field they carry the taint of cracked software. If the goal is to use the leverage of a free Bricasti library to encourage a broader acceptance of Nebula then I think you have to pursue a distribution method that encourages the widest possible audience.

I would love to but we are not quite in the clear yet. We are just still testing and sending stuff out to beta testers in the very early stages of critical listening. It would be fair to unleash only what the golden ears believe is worth releasing so we may have to just wait a little bit longer for demos and comparisons.

As an aside, I am also kind of a video guy and delve in various forums and what tends to happen is there is always excitement with a new camera release. Some dude steals a few seconds of footage under less than ideal conditions and then the pixel peepers come out the woodwork and complain about a product that hasn't even been released. Nay sayers queue up to say what is wrong with it and and every blogger on the planet then regurgitates the info and before you know it it's hard to back track. So for now it will just be a select few and once it's agreed that we have it perhaps almost there then there will be plenty of demos I am sure. Hope you understand. :P

You could always host it on a free cloud service like Mediafire - much faster than torrents

Exactly. Plus, they're kind of a pain to use. Like only being able to download one piece at a time or taking forever because they limit bandwidth to unpaid users...

Mediafire has 50Gb free I believe, and has no download limits, and you can parallel download with download managers

I have gotten up to 5+ MB/s on it

I still vote for torrents. It will only be slow if nobody seeds. And since it IS a legitimate free download, I think it is fitting to use a medium that is notorious for crack-ware for a good free product. If enough people seed, there is no better way to do this in regards to bandwidth AND ethics or "vibe". It's worth a try, for sure. And if people end up being curmudgeons and not seed, then that would be the time to investigate other methods. Just my opinion.
