There is an interesting thread at gearslutz in music computers section entitled 'Paul Frindle Truth or Myth'. Aliasing came up in conversation and Paul said on along the lines that it's actually used in plugin designs to soften high frequencies. Basically these 'problems' aren't necessarily problems. Its an interesting thread take a look
...so.. (13 months later) can we pleaase see oversample (x2, x4) function implemented in nebula once and for all? There are now many compressor libraries that would really benefit from this. Believe it or not I`m using audio card with limited (44/48) sample rates, so oversample would help me A LOT (as I can`t even start 96khz sessions)! Giancarlo??
I'm curious as well because I use 48k sample rate in order to use an analog console and analog hardware in the mix as well. I don't have 48 channels of 96k yet so would it even make a difference to have at least a 2x oversample to (internally to 96k) while using nebula instances? or would it have to go even higher to make a difference?
I did some test's on nebula and a oversampler mentioned in thread and to be honest it does not do nebula any good it ruines the punch and will get you further from the source . But if you dig the sound then go for it, it does soften the highs like mentioned.
