"Grooving Tubing", my new library of a Tube Guitar Amp is out since 2 weeks:
This is an homage to a wonderful sounding tube guitar amplifier. As it is discontinued and there exist just a few hundred pieces on this planet, this is the only chance to get the sound dedicated to this masterpiece.
Devoted sampling resulted in this fantastic, natural sounding nebula programs.
This virtual amp doesn't feel and sound like playing just an amp simulation. It feels and sounds like playing through a real amp reacting on your dynamic playing. Close your eyes and you feel the air between the microphones and your cabinet ! The amp was sampled with high quality Sommer Cables, the king of amp recording microphones: The Sennheiser e906 and the full and rich sounding Audio Technica 4050 as a spot microphone. Each of them sounds fantastic on its own. Copy your guitar track, mix and pan the 2 microphones and you'll have a full, wide stereo guitar sound, larger than life !
And last but not least: Working wonderful for Hammond-Organ, Fender Rhodes and any kind of E-Pianos, making flat sounding midi-instruments come alive.
The programs are dry and don't contain any kind of effects.
Just bought it. Edit: Took some time this morning and played with this amp again. It can actually sound quite good. I haven't tried to play through it but have used it to re-amp from guitar DIs recorded via my interface. Nice work

Congratulations on the new release and becoming an official nebula dev. it's always great to have new developers.
the Grooving Tubing audio demo sounds really nice...and great playing btw. i'll be buying it on Friday.
can you tell us what kind of libraries you plan on developing in the future?
Last but not least: Thank you Marco ! For 2015/2016 I am planning a Reverb library from the algos of 2 Big names in the Reverb landscape. My ideas for my libraries come from personal needs, thats also why I take time and try to make things right. After the reverb an homage to an Amp-eg bassamp will follow...

for a one kernel program this means 30 steps. if the steps was 1.5 db for example, this makes for a range of 45 db.
My target was realtime playability without latency.
As mentioned above, I develop things from what I am missing. I felt a lack of just authentic sounding, simple, clean amps. I use S-Gear many times for overdriven guitars, for a clean, jazzy tone, I still prefer my "Grooving Tubing".
Of course I could have made a 96khz, 5 kernel library: Put that on a few guitar tracks and you know what I mean not everybody has an i7 processor...and even then you still need your ressources for tons of other plug-ins, don't you ?
