i always wanted to use NAT for sampling real rooms, so here we go. this is my lumber room, sampled clean and with 3 kernels. these are testversions, with a smaller size. the steps of the testtones were pretty big (4 db).
the programs are meant for mono in, stereo out. they can give direct signals a nice sense of room/space. i saved the programs as fully wet, because they would give phase issues, when mixed with the dry signal. so when you set it up on aux-channels, you have to phase-align dry and wet signal. or give the aux-channel a pre-delay and lower the volume, to minimize phase-issues. mini-room 1 is the clean version, mini-room 2 has 3 kernels.
Very cool. Downloaded already and will try them as soon as some batch-processing is done. I am loving the recent increase of user made Nebula presets these days. If only I hadn't gotten rid of my analog gear a few years ago..... NAT and I would be friends I suppose. Thanks again mathias, I'll let you know how they sound on my stuff soon!
First test; sounds great mathias! And maybe my ears are playing tricks on me, but i am not having any huge phasing issues. Hmmmm. Thanks for these, they add a nice feel to tracks. They are quite fun on drums, crazy with distorted guitars, but very "right" with vocals and dreamy ethereal key pads (so far!). Awesome stuff!
thanks for appreciation and comments so far. @richie: nice to hear, that you like it. it gives some real "roominess" to signals and creates a stereofield, which is not so easy to achieve via hall-plugins. i was warning about phase issues, because of the very short reflections and the pretty short-delayed "direct"-signal from the speaker-microphones-setup in the room. there is some comb-filtering because of that, when mixing dry and wet. sometimes this is hearable and not wanted, depends on the source. on a directmic-classical-guitar track here, it made the sound a little bit thin and hard. it was a solo guitar. in a mix-scenario on the other hand, this would maybe help to get it through and keep it from interfering too much with other signals.
i will make some more "homebrew", when in have time and creative-ideas. i was thinking in the direction of some experiments, like sending the testtones on a big china gong and recording it as a small room with gong-resonances. could be great on synthstuff .... we'll see.

i was curious to see if my mono to stereo programs will make a good true stereoreverb. so i set it up in metaplugin (mini modular host) like this: two instances of nebula with miniroom 2 (dry at 0 db, FX at 12 db). left plug-input feeds nebula 1 left and right in, right plug-input feeds nebula 2 left and right in.
nebula 1 left out goes to the left plug-output, nebula 2 right out goes to the right plug-output. the other two nebula 1+2 channels go to their respective outputs, but are reduced in level (-22 db). they work as crossfeed between channels.
