I used to work in 48kHz exclusively, that seemed to be a happy medium with "better" resolution and less degradation with 96kHz Nebula libraries, but I have been working more with pre-recorded tracks lately and have begun to get accustomed to 44.1......


I hope more developpers wil follow the Alex B. approach (44.1 & 96 programs).

This sounds awesome, even on the master. I've had PCS for a while and didn't realize it was that! :mrgreen:

I actually have the preamp color suite replace my consoles that i bought in my chain and have had MUCH better results.. for some reason the consoles seem to veil my sounds while the preamps either enhance, enlarge or change the tone to MY will.. :twisted: I have the Globe and MWC.. both dont seem to be able to do what this collection can do, but thats my 2 cents :ugeek:

Hi Barendse!

Only just noticed your comment, and since I wrote the SOS review in question perhaps I ought to explain my findings a little more ;)

Where I was supplied with both 44.1kHz and 96kHz versions of libraries for that review I auditioned them:

a) Using 96kHz audio files and 96kHz Nebula presets.
b) With 44.1kHz audio files and the 96kHz Nebula presets down-converted by Nebula.
c) With 44.1kHz files and the 44.1kHz presets as supplied.

96kHz audio files nearly always had the edge in audio quality (as you'd expect), but when you've got 44.1kHz audio files I could hear a tiny improvement in clarity with developer-converted 44.1kHz presets compared with on-the-spot Nebula converted 96kHz presets.

However, if I were using 44.1kHz audio files, the difference wouldn't be enough to put me off buying Nebula libraries only available in 96kHz versions :roll:

I simply stated that if there's a choice it may be worth buying the 44.1/48kHz Nebula versions 8-)

Hi Martin,

All I can say is that I completely agree with you.
What you described were also my findings when doing some tests.

You're talking about tiny improvements, this is true. But the strength of Nebula is the build up effect of using many programs. Everytime a little improvement makes in the end a noticeable difference.
