Gene said himself on a thread that they are off-centered on purpose. He made these ultimately for himself, and then decided to market them. He said something about always using more than one, and having them not quite centered is more realistic. You should be able to adjust the pan on the track that you are putting them on, if you really need them centered.

I just bought Gene's library tonight, as I am a reverb slut. :lol:

My main weapons of choice are the UA Lex224 and Valhalla Vroom/Shimmer. Now that I'm Nebulized, I'm absolutely blown away by the reverbs. The cupwise (purchased) and VNXT (demoed) verbs I've used sound fantastic.

One issue I'd like to resolve before Gene sends me my d/l link is optimize my files. Currently, the TimP spring reverbs I bought are unusable due to crackling/stuttering, and I'm pretty sure the Gene Lennon libraries will be no different.

For using reverbs, which AU (dll in PC-speak) should I use -- Nebula3 or Nebula3 Reverb? And which MAST/XML setting should I tweak to get the best performance, make sure the tails aren't truncated, etc?

Thanks!

The crackling your speaking of is because of dsp buffer or something else?pm me your master page settings please.

Solid spring should work on a medium buffer with modern cpu's.


Thanks,

Tim

Thanks so much, Tim. I'll get those as soon as I finish work!

I had crackling with some AITB EAR reverbs that was due to kernel switching (i.e. interpolation artifacts); resolved by PROG->EDIT->GLOB and switching to SMOOTH->LINEAR.

Managed to get things sorted out thanks to help from TimP and some futzing around on my part in my XML/MAST page. Tim's spring reverb now sounds very subtle, very real and very, very nice.

Back on topic -- Gene's library sounds fantastic. Yes, it's hot, they definitely need to be on their own aux. Used a HPF before the verb to clear out some mud and rumble and sounds flat-out amazing.

Off center 'issue'... honestly, I didn't even notice. At least in the sense of everything I heard sounds like it should, sounds pro, sounds smooth, and I hear little things I hadn't heard with other verbs. My brain hears that it's off-center and it doesn't matter -- it sounds 'right'.

I have a question here and hope this is not a stupid question: How many kernels?

I have noticed that other reverb libraries have 1 kernel, therefore I wonder what the difference to a convolution IR would be in that case.

the difference is the dynamic layers.
in my experiments i found, that reverbs benefit greatly from more kernels, but they can also introduce some bad ringing or noiselike artefacts.
i am experimenting with more kernels on reverbs at the moment ...

mathias

edit: there are a few reverbs with 3 kernels out there, one being the TOL library of roomhunters
system 1: windows 8 32 bit - samplitude prox, tracktion6, reaper
system 2: mac osx yosemite - reaper(32+64bit), tracktion6(32+64bit)

both systems on: macbook pro (late 2009), core 2 duo 3,06 ghz, 4 gb ram, graphic: nvidia geforce 9600M GT 512 MB

Thanks mathias for chiming in. However - would it not need more than 1 kernel for having more than 1 dynamic layer? With other words, does not the number of kernels equal the number of dynamic layers?

Or maybe I misunderstood something essentially?
