Nebula and guitar

Postby mertayy » Sat Oct 01, 2011 12:00 pm

Modern guitar plug-ins are "ok" for getting distorted sounds (when directly pluged in soundcard) but I'm still not satisfied enough with clean tones.

I want clean, smooth, lush...tones like you hear in jazz or classic blues (gibson-ish).

something thats inserted after an amp vsti would probably work better for me. I remember some librarys released but no names come to my mind, what are my nebula options? (must be low latency)

I could be wrong, but because of the nature of Nebula, I have never seen a low latency Nebula preset. OwnHammer (http://www.ownhammer.com/store/index.ph ... x&cPath=13)has some awesome guitar cabs and power amps, but I don't imagine you can use them real-time with low latency. What I do is track with whatever amp-sim that sounds best that you can still get inspiring enough tones but only actually record the dry signal. Then go back (at higher latency to save CPU) and add your Nebula amp-sims and cabs. Nebula is revolutionizing digital audio, but I have not seen any presets that can be used accurately in real-time, even on a powerful computer. But my method works great and saves me the issues of trying to run Nebula at lowest latency settings.

Thanks for the info. I did a little digging and you're right.

for the sake of tone, I wouldn't mind latency but at least for now it really kills my musicianship.

I downloaded some vst's at acmebargig and will try them. Meanwhile it made me wonder if nebula would be a good pick-up replacer (library developers hearing me? :P )

AcmeBarGig makes good sims. the not free but very cheap ($25.00 or so)Headcase by them is actually good. For low latency ampsims I purchased Revalver when it was an Audiomidi "no-brainer" for under $50.00. I like it better than all of the much more expensive stuff. I have nice mics, nice guitars, and an amazing recording amp (Egnater), but I have been using the Revalver sim for keeper tracks recently, not just for convenience. It sounds that good when tweaked properly. I feel that the biggest inspiration killer to be the burden of fiddling with things, I can cope with not-quite-right tone. try Headcase, it's very full featured.

Building one? cool. You WILL be letting us know when you sample it, right....? (drool....) :mrgreen:

Those converters are awesome, by the way. I am saving for some as well. Now if I can only refrain from buying more Neb libraries......

I'm lucky enough to be training at R S in Bath.

They build some lovely eq's and compressors.

Tinkering with guitar amps is a little obsession of mine.

Glad to hear it. Nothing better than getting the tools together so the inspiration can be recorded.
