The Great Spring v2 - Tim Petherick
I've actually retired all my hardware springs because of Nebula. This library is in use all the time. It sounds really similar but better to my Accessit Spring (same manufacturer and period). Springs and Plate translate really well into Nebula, no artificial modulation to worry about I guess! I really like the Furman Spring from Cupwise, long and dark, I've also got this hardware but don't use it anymore.

Impressive! Is there anything from TimP that doesn ´t sound great?
I own most of his eqs and comps, will check out his reverbs, too!

I’ve been running synths and drums through my sub phatty for an awesome crunch. Decapitator gets little to no use nowadays.

Sounds at least as good as Ebony, while it demands 1/20 of the cpu (with Ebony comp and eq off). Impressive!

You can follow and make TimP’s VB Plate setup and these videos are made by JPN (N4 skin maker).

For reverb, higher DSP is better (2048 or higher) and uses less CPU but increase in latency.

Yep, anything into my Moog Subsequent 37 CV or Moogerfooger filters comes out sounding like heaven IMHO, I just love that fatness the Moog spits out.

I've been begging G for the past 2 years for an Acqua filter like the Moog, maybe one day.

AlexB has the Vintage synth filters which I think has a moog. I've never got around to trying them. Anyone else has?

Yes and is great on VST synths like Spire, Serum, VPS Avenger, u-he Zebra etc.

Here are an example of AlexB VSF Line Amp with Spire VST (first without and then with)

I have every known Nebula filter library and AlexB's and STN filters are the best IMHO..... but you can't drive into them like you can a Moog, you don't have full filter control, and we have NOTHING ITB today that can do real analog rez like hardware can. The Nebula filters do give you the freq variations but not the overdrive or distortion and can't fatten up a signal like hardware. I'll keep bugging G about an Acqua filter but I believe it will take some more tech advancement before it's possible.

Agree with that. Interessting what gear you guys recommend when it comes to giving itb-audio this special analog vibe!

I read a lot about elektrons analog heat... or better a Moog Sub phatty? A special filterbank or some kind of converters?

I´m really curious about that and you make me want to investigate more!

But at the Moment and after BF there is not much left in my wallet.

I've got an Analogue Heat II sitting next to my Subsequent 37 CV, I would suggest Moog Moogerfooger filter or Sherman Filterbank over the Heat for just filtering. The Heat is sooooo much cleaner but it has its uses, it would just not be my first filter choice. The Heat does have hi/low EQ and works well for 2 bus enhancement, whereas the Moog is just phat sounding.

Agree about the AH, the filter and the eq are not the greatest imho. The different saturation/ distortion circuits sound nice and make the device usefull in combination with the envelope follower and the lfo.

Oto Boum is another option.

I've been wanting to check out the Dreadbox filter box..... there are just too many quality filters out there that AA's gotta bring into plugin form.

AA are obviously succesfull with their business model, releasing mainly channelstrip/ mixing tools. But I would love to see them releasing
„Creative“ tools, like multimode filters with lots of envelopes and lfos or chorus/ phaser/ flanger devices.

Like U-he Uhbik as acqua.

I have come to the conclusion that Nebula 4 is the greatest thing on the planet and anyone who denies the obvious brilliant, remarkable quality probably eats McDonald's McRib sandwiches on a daily basis. Thank you to all who have steered me in the right direction.

Can Nebula now do pitch-modulation effects?
I see TimP has chrous and vibrato programs in his Classic Phaser Collection library

Yes. That BP1 Filter continues to do positives on a variety of Projects.

A key parameter ... the DRIVE. This allows significant control of the LF bump to the point of getting a near 'flat-line' curve. [also affects the saturation]. This makes the Preset flexible to the Project needs. Nice

No pitch shifting. Tim P has a tremolo and phasers which are time based effects rather than pitch.

I understand the difference between time and pitch based effects, however, the release page says that "chorus and vibrato" were sampled:

Classic Phasers - Tim Petherick

I know that some chorus effects can be created using only short delays with no pitch modulation, but I figured vibrato was strictly pitch-based.

But the page does also say, "Selecting vibrato gives a wobbly sound, kind of a pitch shifting illusion" ... So guessing it's not true vibrato here.

Yes, the TimP's Classic Vibe is an Uni-Vibe, and despite its two modes called "Chorus" and 'Vibrato", the Uni-Vibe is a phaser.
