Some libraries when in timed mode have artefacts others barely add character and some create a HUGE difference.(My favorite is Henry's La2a library in timed mode with kernels set to 35 ms each, right after calkwalks la2a emulation) I do change the XML and create separate HQ versions of libraries i use often.
Thank you for the response. I have also seen both the david1103 post and the YouTube video and have created a TIMED version of Nebula I use on some occasions.
My very first night with Nebula I started with the Mpassive, and with some beginner's lack of experience and too much monkeying around, I mucked up my test mix in a heartbeat. Not the fault of the Mpassive at all, I definitely plan on revisiting this preset.
Didn't have a chance to even try the Ampeg RAR yet (I want to set aside quality time, not a quick demo). The quick demo of the Ampeg Bass amp didn't yield immediate success... the volume was noticeably lower, I had some volume automation on the test track and couldn't really demo it properly. Again, I need to 'mix into' this from the start to give it a proper and fair shake.
Chiswick comp mojo -- neither subtle nor blatant. An ineffable vibe that's neither sweet nor dirty. Can't describe it. Saying it adds weight makes it sound heavy; it's not. Presence doesn't quite work either. But I really like it.
RND Pre -- nice. Very subtle.
Girthy series -- this is like an analog mojo sledgehammer wrapped in cashmere coming down on your head. I use DMG Equilibrium in front of the Girthy presets and this is it. This is why I bought Nebula but didn't know why. Like heavy cream warmed on a wood-burning stove. So, so good.
Henry's Girthy presets alone are worth a Nebula purchase. I plan on doing some Girthy demos soon on bass/drums if anyone is interested.
