After reading a lot about Nebula I decided to buy it yesterday. There's still a lot to explore but I need to start working with NAT right away. I managed to lay my hand on some rare N*****n PEZ and Telefunken EQ's which I only have available for the weekend. As they are very basic in use with very few controls (and sound absolutely fantastic by the way) they are the ultimate try out for NAT if you ask me.
I went through the software already and it doesn't look very hard but it would be great if somebody can give me some hints which steps to take to get started.
I can't seem to find a manual or 'hints and tips' for NAT3, or did I miss it?
Of course I would love to share my files in return for your help.
Thank you very much in advance.

The more kernels you use the more saturation you are able to capture. (I think )
Though it's not as simple as that. Apparently you can wreck some of your samplings if you use too large kernel programs. Trial and error (I think). But a general tutorial or explanation would be welcomed by the masses (I suspect).
There are many eq sampled at 3 kernels. I think it is a safe setting for sampling an eq. 1 kernel will only capture the curve of the eq (usable when stacking several programs coming from the same library if you don't wont too much coloration).
So i'd say do both 1 and 3 kernel versions at identical settings of the unit.
Yes, there's a thread somewhere on the old forum where Giancarlo explains that single kernel is just the linear behavior; I think this is the reason many EQs tend to be either 1 (just the curve as tumburu says) or 3 kernels (curve + some mojo).
I just checked a bunch of the EQ programs I have loaded on this machine, they seem to all be 1-3 kernels (the 1 kernel programs I found, some of the EQs in the RASS, are meant to be front-ended by one of the RASS preamp colors, I believe).
Thanks all for your replies. I already decided exactly what you are proposing: Do both 1 an 3 kernel versions. I started an hour ago and currently busy with the 60 Hz band of the N*****n PEZ EQ. It is such an amazing EQ! Made long before I was born
I'm doing my Great River pre (in another thread) and I noticed that if I drive it with Nebula as hard as I do when I normally record I seem to get some really warped looking frequency responces. So I back it down just a little bit.
Not sure if this applies to your project or if it's the right way of doing it at all. Just a heads up.
