AITB EAR Room programs are totally unusable for me..
I've only tried the 44.1 kHz EAR ROOM programs so far on my Macbook pro (Intelcore i7, 2,66 GHz 8 Gig RAM) the CPU usage rises to over 100% in a second and my DAW won't even play. When choosing a 'lighter' program, for example 'room 1', my CPU goes from 1% to 75%. This happens as well in Logic in OSX as in Sequoia 64 bit in Windows..
I've tried all the following steps, but it doesn't make things better at all. - I increased the DAW’s buffer size to 2048 samples -I changed the dsp buffer in Nebula to 8192 -I've tried raising the RATE CNV to the highest. - i'm using the latest Nebula 3 pro versions.
Normally I can run about 10 Nebula instances on 1 track without a problem.
Can someone please help me out on this? The person at AITB stated in an e-mail that a few other customers also can't run a single instance of these EAR rooms reverb. I've seen more costumers are having problems with this. Is there any solution already?

Same problem here. Posted it. No answer. Contacted AITB who said the problem comes from Nebula. Contacted Giancarlo who said it's not Nebula... Don't have any solution. Even on my Mac Pro, I can't run 1 instance of EAR Hall at 96kHz...

Could nebula server make such a difference?
I use Nebula server version, but still not as a server/slave set-up; I am still using it like a regular Nebula instance, and I can indeed use the E.A.R. rooms and halls. I have a large project (almost 100 tracks with plugins) that I use 3 different instances from these libraries, and I am on a decent quad-core, but not an i7 moster (yet). But I am on a PC, not a Mac, so I am guessing that AITB is correct in assuming that this is a Nebula (Mac version specifically) issue. I am guessing, of course, but it seems like a reasonable guess. Good luck.
Yes, I think there are some problems on the Mac version: this problem with EAR (the same with long VNXT reverbs too) and the fact that in the 1.3.505 version, the VSTs are not recognized. I hope they will fix that asap...

I have only played with the Halls a couple of hours, but to me they sound very natural, and as someone pointed before, very HIFI. I used a combination of EAR Rooms and Halls in a flamenco guitar I recorded some days ago and it was an instant wow.
I'm having an issue with only the Small Vox Room. It sounds like its clipping/distorting causing the audio to break up and stutter in a robotic way? Any ideas? I've been waiting for a reply from aitb for about 4 days now!
No idea, actually. And I was actually referring to the buffer you are working with in your DAW. I have found there to be a sweet spot regarding the internal buffer settings in Nebula, and they are not universal. I had terrible performance when Nebula's buffer was low, like at 512, but equally bad performance at 8192. Nebula runs really well at 4096 on my system, for some reason. But I was wondering if you were stressing out your CPU using Nebula reverbs at low latency settings. I have seen even i7 monster rigs get bogged down this way, so I was just wondering. Either way, I am glad that you found some way to keep moving forward with your audio!!
