Nebula must have

Hi all,

i somehow missed that thread...Ok, i give it a try, just bought Nebula 3 Pro, and i would like to get now the essential other stuff thats great. Doin Synthpop, what im interested in:

Tape

EQ

Comp

Analog Console

anything else must have? Which ones are the preferred ones? To be honest, im to lazy to check all those demos and samples...

U might know whats good, why not ask. Found some threads over Nebula Libraries, but it ended most time in IMO talking. I know, its a individual thing, even also kinda music thing, but someone might now whats good for me

Thanks for your time and help

AlexB stuff is top notch. Especially the Neve & API emulations. He's got Consoles and EQs.
You will find tape emulations on cdsoundmaster's website.
Anotherone I haven't tried so far is analoginthebox with EQ, Comp, console emulations.

I was just wondering whether there are some great amp simulation for Nebula ?

The thing with 3rd party programs is that they have to be done very well.
And the ones mentioned above used good converters, cable and proper gain staging.

Good luck!

A couple of weeks ago I browsed the posts on Nebula to find what piece of gear each library sampled and find which ones seemed to be most recommended. I took all this info and consolidated it in a single text file... I paste it below since you'll probably find it useful.

In green the ones I've already purchased


EQ

  • Mammoth EQ (Manley passive) + expansions – Analoginthebox – 25€ (Essential)
  • Vintage 73eQ - Alex B – 20€ (This or the next one)
  • Fate EQ (Neve 1073) - Analoginthebox – 15€ (This or the previous one)
  • Cooltec (Pultec EQP1A3) – CDSoundmaster – 49$
  • VBQ (API 550a) – Alex B – 20€
  • CLQ (SSL 4000E) – Alex B – 20€
  • Doc Fear (Dw Fearn VT4) – Analoginthebox – 13€
  • Siemens W295b – CDSoundmaster – 49$
  • Focal Point 115HD (Focusrite ISA 115 HD) – CDSoundmaster – 49$
  • GEQ-8300 EQ (GML???) – CDSoundmaster – 59$


Reverbs
  • EMT140 – VNXT – 18€
  • Producer’s Pack 2 (include "Real Spaces" Reverb collection) – CDSoundmaster – 39$

Summing mixers / Consoles
  • VBC (Neve 8014 console for mixing) – Alex B – 40€
  • Vintage GMC (Neumann style for mastering) – Alex B – 40€
  • MBC (API 1608) – Alex B – 40€
  • Neve 5088 – Alex B
  • CLC Pro (SSL 4000 E) – Alex B 40€

Tape
  • R2R + TapeBooster – CDSoundmaster – 128$. it's got everything from high end modern Studers & Otaris loaded with Ampex & ATR tape, all the way through to weird and wonderful 50's tape recorders like Wolensak etc

Compressor (please note from what I have heard Nebula compressors are still not exceptional)
  • Fate Compressor (Neve 2254) – Analoginthebox – 20€
  • Draw-Her (Drawmer 1968 ME) – Trascending Music – 18€

Distorsion
  • Vcult (Thermionic Vulture Culture) - Transcending Music – 20€

Very glad you found it helpful!

Not associated at all with Nebula... just somebody that discovered Nebula barely one month ago and is starting to rely on it!

Very nice list indeed (I know cause I have bought most of them).

Fatecomp is great too, works great on almost everything.

For mastering Behemoth (Transcending music) en GMC console (Alex B) are amazing.

to be honest all the 3rd party libs are excellent - its whatever suits you!

I think the analoginthebox FLEX EQ bundle is pretty undeniable as you get

API 550
Neve 1073
Massive Passive
Massive Passive Expansion
DW Fearn Tube EQ

for €49

Im a big fan of R2R with Tapebooster +

Aside what has already been said....

The Alex B CLC (SSL 4k) and VBC (Vintage Neve console) seem to be the 2 most favourite consoles in the community...

Take a look at the rhythminmind libraries also:

ordered CLC + thinking of the neve classic or vintage. it seems the vintage has more nice lowend, while the classic is nice in the highs.

Sorry for the novice question but can you buy and run the above emulation in Nebula 3 free or do you need the pro version?

Probably on their site somewhere but.........

Nebula2 will do also, soundwise it's the same quality as 3Pro.

Is it worth to buy Nebula 3 Pro if I already have UAD-2 quad Omni, Liquid Mix and Waves Mercury Bundle?

Depends what you are looking for.
I personally sold my Liquid Mix, rarely use my UAD-2 and from waves I only use CLA comp and LinMB. With Nebula I use AlexB stuff on every mix.

YMMV

I prefer Nebula EQs way over UAD EQs...I sold my UAD card...however - Nebula compression still has a way to go and cant replace UAD there...or with delays...they are both good...

yeah I got 'em - couldnt resist...and I have a 1968 to compare...but havent got around to it yet...

Fate comp is excellent - not so versatile - but pretty realistic sounding good for bass - but the attack is a little fast for my tastes on other uses...I tried the Rhythminmind Drawmer 1968 program...Jury is still out on that one...

That Fate comp sounds fantastic on demo video, but it's too "unversatile".

Please, review that 1968/Draw Her if you have the real thing to compare!

Has anyone used the analog in the box tube console? I don't hear much talk about it, is it good, or are Alex B's programs pretty much the no brainers as far as console programs go?
