So say if i have 7 emulations of a preamp on one channel to get a really thick analog vibe but i only want one instance how would i go about sampling it? surley i can make it so i sample all 7 nebula's and i would get the same result... or can I?
yes you could sample the whole stack in offline mode... It will be somewhat limited cause you play it again using a limited amount of kernels. If you play 2 instances limited to 10 kernels your result is based on higher amount of harmonics. The same on the dynamic side. Nat is a good sampler BUT is not perfect, you loose something. If your stack is not so much overdriven you'll get good results, exacly like you were sampling an original hardware pre
