- licensing support (look below) - if output folder doesn't exist when rendering, it is now automatically created - license info./credits window - default sample rate setting (Quick Guide page 5) - a lot of small changes, enhancements etc.
As already mentioned, this version introduces licensing. You'll need a valid license file to run NebulaMan. Just send your name and email to zabukowski at gmail dot com and I will send you a license file ASAP.
Copy provided license file to the folowing location: windows: NebulaMan program folder osx: /user/library/preferences
If license is valid, program will run - you can check license info thru 'About' menu option.
--- As usual, if you have problems with a program, first try to delete "nmsettings.xml" and "nebulaman.layout" files to reset it.
Because NebulaMan preview file is not a part of the NebulaMan project (it is not saved with a project), it is a good idea to add files, which are to be previewed inside our project, to the 'Rendering plan'.
Because double click on a particular file inside rendering plan, causes this file to becoma the main 'preview' file.
As you know, you can have as many files as you want inside rendering plan. So, you can quickly switch between files by double clicking on them.
Normalizing options (found on the 'rendering plan' dock) are also active, when previewing files. They can be a lot of help, when previewing/processing very hot, loud files (for example "finished" masters, which you must fix
Instead of lowering input level, just set 'Normalize to (peak RMS)' to let's say '-18' db and disable 'temporarily' option.
If you want to disable all FX in the 'Master FX' dock, don't use global 'Bypass' option. When normalizing to a lower level, it can blow your speakers & ears, because 'bypass' will also disable normalizing.
Instead of that, select all FX (Ctrl-a) and use '(un)check selected FX' button in the 'Master FX' dock.
alpha 13 will also have a special feature called "Descriptions update". It will allow updates/changes of selected Nebula program/library descriptions.
In the final release, there will be a special descriptions files available as a bonus download. I think you know who is THE MAN behind these files (think Reaper FX chains). Most of the Nebula libraries will be covered and new libraries descriptions will be added, when available.
