I'm about to take the plunge and go for nebula pro3 but am wondering which libraries I should get to get a punchy house mix. So far I've read to go for the r2r bundle, doc fear eq, and a couple of the alex b consoles, but people always seem to talk about rock or pop etc.
Any tips on how I would stack nebula in the mix or which elements get which treatments are more than welcome. My thoughts so far are to use the alex b console emulation on every track to get separation (but which one for dance?!), use the eq's, and leave the compressors duties for other plugins, delays I'll also get my soundtoys bundle.
I was also thinking of upgrading the soundtoys bundle to get decapitator, but isn't getting r2r AND decapitator going to be a bit of a double dip? Or is there still no competition?

nebula cant get even close to the amount of saturation you can get with decapitator. (except if you stack up 24 tapebooster+) ofcourse decapitator was deisgned to have a tube sound not a tape emulation, but you can't get that great colour from it like from the R2R programs. I think they are a great combo to compliment each other.
As for eq i can recommend the Mammoth eq for electronic music, cause it has a certain shine and kinda 'new school' sound to it. Doc Fear is a must have for high air boost on vocals, and everything else.
What do you guys think about r2r and tapebooster+ for dance? What's the difference? I'm actually enjoying the r2r demo but am wondering if it's going to be too much putting tape on tracks AND going through a console..
Tumburu, oh yeah I know I'll have to decide for myself, but it's just to get a general idea before shelling out my cash, and having never owned any hardware, any opinions or experience might help me better understand the sonic qualities of all these libraries. I'm not looking for the holy grail, I'm looking to read and learn, and then buy and learn some more.
