Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but inside Nebula the parameters show what they will change to, not what they are set at. If it says mono, you are in stereo, etc. Is that right anyone?

For mono/stereo you're right.

Awesome- thanks! :-)
I still haven't released the album (all guitar songs I wrote and recorded) but I've licensed some of the songs for synch. I don't ever get tired of playing and recording- just very hard to make the time!

Hi there- I hope I answered this in your email to where it makes sense. If not just let me know.
Consider the Acqua the same quality as rendering using the longest kernels - these use all harmonic kernels and the full number of dynamic layers, so they do take cpu but are easy to tweak the xml's to taste if needed. The only thing I recommend adjusting at all in the acquas is the 'dspbuffer' if you need to. For the most part they are super easy to pre-render based on track, buss, and mains, and for the Globe just tracks and mains as it is with the console.
I personally recommend the "eq in" version of everything in all consoles as they are the most interesting complexity in spectrum, dynamics, and harmonics" in my opinion.

I'm sure I'll be picking up a console or 2 so I can hear for myself. I have just begin to get under-the hood on the Nebula settings and some of them seem to have an affect on sound quality, naturally.

Maybe I'm asking if the Nebula settings I would see in the Kern page are the same in the Acqua version, I don't know if I can tell (or care?) what those settings are.

Thanks

Thanks Michael - your email made sense, I appreciate it. Hats off to timp and richie43 for advice also. Now that the controls are making better sense (and the view from the UI, ex: Stereo = NOT Stereo) I can get on with actually listening to my new BBC Console! Thanks again for making these Michael. [Note: per the email the only recommended setting to change is the dspbuffer size if needed to alter the number of instances available because the other settings are already set to represent the console true to its sound.]

Sooo.. anyone actually knows hardware behind vintage bbc and custom british consoles? also.. anyone compared sound of vst versus nebula? I've got vintage tube collection nebula and vst.. didn't hear much difference in sound but somehow always prefer to load nebula.. those faders on guis have no db scale.. :roll: :)
