Trying out the vnxt plate 140 on a few things.

I generally don't use plates for much more than snares, but I'm loving the sound of this thing and starting to experiment.

Where's another good use for me to try it out on?

trying that out today, actually...

I'm used to having a lot more control over parameters for vocal verbs, and I'm quite limited at the moment as I'm usning the free version until (hopefully soon) I can get local server version for au.

I don't see as many people discussing it, but as far as I'm concerned, the vnxt bx20e is the holy grail guitar spring ITB solution I've been searching for for over a year. Really excited to see some more springs done this way too.

I'm still in the process of working out the rather major workflow changes that need to be made to make this work, but I'm loving the sound.

put it on the master and just mix in a hint of reverb - on the right material it is wonderful

I don't use it for groups that much. So just line and master buss for me.
There's a render program as well, where you can apply those changes faster.
Don't know about the Mac...
There is a lot of work but the sound you'll get...
Everything gets glued somehow. It's crazy..
Eq's are beyond anything else I have tried. And I have UAD and others...
Thanks very much.

Perhaps the fleq eq bundle would be a good start?

It's worth it given you get 5 libaries - Mammoth, Mammoth Expansion, Doc Fear, Fate and Ape.

OMG i bought the flex eq bundle, no words to describe how good these eq sound compared to others plug-ins, i got the emt 140 plate reverb just amazing, i tried to get the same results with IR reverbs with no luck, not even close. Now i understand why nebula users talk about 3D in the mixes. Fate compresor is really good too. Hope to get soon some of the alexb consoles.

nebula rocks

I have been playing with nebula, Im really liking it.
Here is a track im testing nebula with. It just a static mix, took me like 1 Hr ( counting the freeze time in logic ). It alot easier to mix with the tape simulation on each track, everything glues. Hope you like it, i did not have time to check the sub bass , NS10 user here. Im getting a sub woofer soon, hope it improves my mixes.

It's allways smooth! If you add all the hi end you can, things just sound... great, sweet, smooth, whatever you want to call it.

Just buy it, you won't regret... unless you're that kind of guy that uses 300 EQ bands on a track...

Hey, take it easy people. I just didn't know what you meant by been amazing but not "brutal". Never mind.
Relax, you don't need to preach the Nebula's path to me, I'm already converted.

So... Any other opinions on which console for an all-arounder? One that does mojo, but doesn't kill all the sparkle, etc?

So far, looking at maybe mammoth, emt plate, and one of the alexB offerings

Also, I know things are changing rapidly in the compressor department.

... anything recommended as a best desert island comp? I think I'd prefer a bit more mojo than an ssl buss type. Looking to comp mainly vocals and stereo buss (maybe I need 2?)... Not really sure which direction to go. Maybe more like vari-mu or even api... open to suggestions. Running at 44.1 if that matters.
The 1968me comp programs will do, the Vari mu is a little tricky to adjust.

I was looking at some of the manuals for the alex b consoles, and they're all basically just graphs o each channel emulation's response.

I'm a bit confused as to what the buss channels are exactly. It shows a "drum" channel, a "guitar" channel, etc, and the freq characteristics are different.

Am I to assume they are not simply console buss channels then? Are they channels from that console, but with the eq's and such tweaked? Are they patched with inserts for those purposes? If it shows whats being emulated there, I must have missed it.

The ones that come with it are quite good, but I for one would gladly pay good money for a booster set of time-based effects... in 96k.

Also, I just tried every single filter that comes with it, and ended up using another plug to do the ubiquitous lpf filter sweep with a moderate resonance setting.

Is there a nebula filter out there that really nails a smooth sounding resonant sweep better than, say, waves oneknob filter, or sonalksis tbk, or various synth fx programs?

Alex B MLC is the only one I use. I have heard examples of quite a few others and compared them and MLC is great for a modern, tight, punchy sound. It's not warm and 'valvey' like some but it has a very clear and upfront sound.

Perfect when your using valves/tape in the recording chain. I also have the MLEQ that goes with it and all I can say is WOW - 3D!!!

I have tried many filters over the last decade or so and my favorite of them all is Fabfilter Simplon. FabFilter Simplon

I would be interested in a Nebula filter but to be honest, Simplon is so easy and nice that Im not sure I need anything else.

Well, I just got the fate too, and big drawmer... looks like r2r is next.

I'm looking into fab filter now. The neb paid ones seemed a bit light on the resonance for what I want... maybe it's adjustable, I'm not sure.

That's a shame as Alex B has been easy to deal with here.

I read a lot about r2r & tape booster. But I put it off for a while because it is much more expensive than other things for nebula.

GOD I'M GLAD I GOT IT!!!! r2r is simply THE plugin for phattness!

Analog-in-the-box Eq's are very good too. I think my favourite EQ is MLEQ but I often use the bass of FATE EQ. Doc fear or FATE EQ for treble. MLEQ for low-mid and also FATE EQ for that crunchy Neve middle. Massive Passive filters for warm cuts and MLEQ filters for more transparency.

For Mastering GMC EQ for bass (similiar to FATE Bass) & treble and massive passive for middle and filters.

Changed my mind... gonna do another eq next. I'll look into ML.

Any opinions on what's a good companion for mammoth? Hoping to go 96, but not a total deal-breaker.

Hmmm.. really would prefer 96k for the eq as it looks like I'm headed that way.

been using a lot of nebula here as well, simply amazing with it is able to do.

I have been using it in 44.1 and i'm about to try and switch everything to 96k in hopes of even higher quality.
