I think is OK if you think in a Mastering technician way into loudness war. -18 + 6 = -12 dBFS seems like CDSM use K-12 as a nominal level. Just relevel and go.

We (me and my audio mate) must leave -18 dBFS as nominal due EBU r-128 so we must relevel everything to -23 dBFS. We don't know if music will follow EBU or not...

If the metering type selected in Nebula actually effects how the programs behave then we have a problem when trying to use the VU mode...


Pretty sure the metering won't change the behavior the programs; but from program to program it sounds like global pads (I'm assuming this is the difference) and the like can alter the readings of the meters. I'm not sure what the answer is for staging with CDSM programs; I've always used external meters in the past.

It's not consistent from one library to the other (see my last post)... Not a lot of headroom when a 0 dBFS test signal gives -3 on a VU meter :?

I remember Giancarlo saying: "you should use the same meter system used for kernel switching!!!!!
Even if nebula meter sytem (rms mode) is NOT correct, you should trust IT! because this is what's used by the engine! "


I'm a bit confused as to how I should understand this...

First of all - many thanks to Ngarjuna for these two new skins 8-)

faun2500 - I noticed this flickering too, and it's a function of the GUI rate. Once you increase this to around 20mS the flickering disappears.

regarding the CDS - R2R library.

I think it important to go back and re-read the manual for the R2R libraries.

There is important info that describes WHY the programs are set as they are ... also, how to make critical adjustment to get the most out of a tape, and being able to create a custom 'patch' for what 'you' want to have.

Glad to see some 'skin' work ... hope for a fader version :)

-some of the presets I've tested:

AlexB:
(MWC/MLC/GMC/BMQ/MLQ/MWQ) 0vu= -18dBFS

cdsoundmaster:
1084 (preamp) 0vu= -5.8dBFS
GEQ (preamp) -20vu=0dBFS
T*****t (NOEQ ALL -K11) 0vu= -8.66dBFS
Tweed (TWD-D-NEQ-ALLK11) 0vu= -5.9dBFS
Cooltec -3vu=0dBFS

etc..

In short, using the internal VU metering for cdsoundmaster libraries might not be the best idea...

I will definitely give it a shot (maybe a variation of some kind with sliders).
