Yeah, i am SUPPOSED to be regulating my own outgoing currency these days.... I have been scooping up Nebula libraries for almost a year now, and I am not made of money.... Thank God my wife loves me..... Mercado, the NobleQ really is a nice eq for a non-Neb. I wish it were legal and ethical to share, I bought it with very little demo. I have Michael's Aqua NiceEQ and N-10-AT4 eq, but these are only a little non-Neb. They are very good too.

The strength of Nebula is the great build up effect. That's why I use Nebula. Inserting just one plug in a single track doesn't mean much to me.
I hear ya. I agree as well, but I think it's important to stay open minded and "open ear-ed" to other possible great tools. The Nebula build-up is indeed awesome, like hardware, but some really nice non-Neb plugs can add a flavor of it's own.
Thanks for the observations Mathias. Matching the LS isn't trivial because the NobleQex rolls of some of the HF once the valve switch is engaged (which I don't like btw). I compensated for it by setting the Hi-Shelf frequency to 40kHz and boosting a bit to get a much more similar frequency response to the PoolTeq. Adjusting the HF had no effect on the structure of the harmonic distortion as far as I could tell. To match the THD levels I had to set the valve to somewhere between 10-11 o'clock.
well, it is just not possible, to make the perfect comparison.
in the last examples i would decide for E. the noise from the fingerboard is a little bit more prominent, but i find it much more clear and defined. so the bass can be clearly heard with his contribution to the music
F is too blurry for my taste.
so, which is psp and which nebula?
