Not CPU inefficient, just CPU hogs. The new Acqua is becoming much more CPU efficient, take the demo's for a test drive.... the sound is nothing short of fantastic. Do remember that VST is the biggest plugin format on the planet, AAX and AU will be coming.

Website is better than most now & the information and forum are up to date. The new Acqua plugins work like every other plugin made. The original Nebula takes more time to master, but it is very powerful with the best sound quality in the box and a huge amount of cheap libraries.

The plugins are the 2d version of each picture, the Nebula interface is just the load screen and 8 sliders or knobs, depending on what skin you are using. The new Acqua plugins are super simple, just demo them..... you will have a hard time using algo EQ plugins again if you do.

Nebula has been in development for a decade, during that time is has fostered the different versions and the new Acqua plugins and Nebula 4 are making this advanced technology workable for everyone. Again, the sound quality is superior in all ways except compressors.... but they are catching up fast.
