VCC is splashed ALL over the front cover, the review takes up about 4 pages, its Gushing, doesn't mention Satson and simply implies Nebula is a CPU hog. Nope that's not a fair review at all. As someone said the old marketing machine over a Slate is rolling along and as always is trying to take out all competitors in its path. Me personally i'll never buy a Slate product as i think he's a sleaze ball. Thats just my opinion and not the opinion of this forum. Don't as me why i have that opinion as i can't ask my gut why it feels that way
It's just like REAPER, it wasn't included in the 27th Tech Awards but that doesn't mean v4 isn't good enough , it's just a marketing thing and we can't blame anyone for that (though, seriously, SOS is one of the latest 'serious' magazine imo). In fact, according to what you've said they mentioned Nebula is a CPU hog and that's not a lie, so what was wrong with that? Volterra is some sort of convolution so they weren't wrong there either, imo. Nebula has had many many reviews in many many magazines and we all know what this baby is capable of, we know nothing can beat Nebula, sound-wise, so let them write whatever they want, we know what we're using and we love it

Satson is NOT Nebula. It doesn't have the versatility or flexibility. But it IS very cool and different. It is a great tool for console emu's if you want to just get a mix going. It is almost negligible on the CPU load, so that's a huge plus. I've had over 200 instances on a project in Reaper (Buss and Channel instances) with a CPU load of about 30% on a standard non-"i" series quad PC. It will never give me the analog Realness that Nebula offers, but it's an awesome tool to have in the tool-box. A great one also if you have a client watching and don't want to scare them with the work-flow of Nebula. And Satson has some of the best HP&LP filters I've ever heard. Worth the 40 or 50 bucks it costs.
