I'll be working on some audio demos shortly. But 1st it's almost 4am & sleep is calling. =)
Proper Nebula program creation is not an easy task, this one in particular.

I compared the 3 and 7 kernel versions on a mix a little. The 7 kernel one makes the sound deeper and the high end sparkle is really there.

At least for rock, its very nice for mastering or bus duty's.

I only had a delay to receive the download link cause automatic system didn't work. So I sent an e-mail and soon after the developer send me the links.

Send an e-mail describing your problem, he's very helpful guy.

I have a session going on that needs some "meat" in it, all tracks sound a bit thin (source material not so good quality..). It's sort of RHCP/soft rock.

Would this give me a better start if inserted on every track, the free version I mean?

The program gives a nice body & highend boost with some euphoric harmonic coloring. I would start off putting it on bus/master tracks 1st, then add it to individual elements as needed. This helps keep the CPU load down.
If you have the CPU to spare you can't go "wrong" using many instances. Hell if we all could afford 20+ channels of VariMu hardware compression i'm sure we would. With nebula we can.

Nebula 2 is "still" only 20 euro and works fine here.

Sounds interesting, thanks; quite flattering on some material. Quite surprised at how much sub is lost though -- this is equivalent to running through a Vari-Mu with no gain reduction?

Also, can anyone shed light on the upper frequency weirdness in the PA freq graph? What's going on there?

Yes this is without gain reduction.

The plot shows a frequency range greater than 20-20khz
Most equipment is only optimized to process in that audible range. Analog equipment will drastically vary from product to product below/beyond 20-20khz.

Which converters and cables were used at which samplingrate to capture the program ?


Oups, sorry just seeing that you used Lynx (Aurora I guess) at 24/96 ... will check it out soon.

I apologize for the inconvenience.
I'm uploading/adding the option for a self-exacting executable (.exe) as I type. You have the link in a few moments.

hi!

i also bought the program today (3k already sounded awesome!), but there is a problem with the download.
the download stops at something like 150 MB and the 7k version is damaged afterwards.

please fix this!

UPDATE:
My host provider has informed me do to increased traffic a PHP download timeout went into action. This has now been adjusted for & will hopefully no longer be an issue.
This explains why some never could never complete the download depending on DL speeds. I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out this one.

Please PM/Email if any troubles persist. I guarantee I will get anyone having issues their files. Gotta love the interwebs sometimes.
