Acustica Audio releases Nebula2 Free VST-Version

Nebula2 represents a quantum leap forward in audio processing. Using Volterra Kernel series inspired technology, Acustica Audio has developed a truly unique plugin that is capable of emulating numerous types of audio equipment; ranging from equalisers, filters, microphones, preamps, compressors, and reverbs. However the list of the types of emulable equipment is considerably larger than the aforementioned listing, as Nebula2 is also capable of replicating generic time-variant processors and effects such as flangers, phasers, and choruses.

Features

   * DYNAMIC RANGE: 192.5 dB

   * FREQUENCY RATES: 6Khz, 8Khz, 11.025Khz, 14Khz, 16Khz,  22.05Khz, 24Khz, 32Khz, 48Khz, 60Khz, 64Khz, 70Khz, 77Khz, 88.2Khz, 96Khz, 176.4Khz, 192Khz, 352.8Khz, 384Khz

   * HARMONIC ORDERS: Program-dependent: 0 to 4

   * INTERNAL BIT RATE:

         o AUDIO

           64 bit floating point for optimizations 1, 3, 4
           80 bit floating point for optimizations 2, 5, 6, 7

         o CONTROL SOURCES

           64 bit floating point

   * IN/OUT BIT RATE: 32 bit floating point

Nebula2 Free comes with a number of high quality FREE presets.

i am a mac g5 user. i mix and master professionally with cubase sx3.  this is interesting to me in theory, or at some point when and if i change my computer hardware to intel... but i still plan to stick with osx.  do you  think that osx support is not necessary?

Nebula2 1.2.721

- Multithreading bug for Sonar PE (logical processor switching called only during program loading,
- KERN page changements or PROGRAM RATE setting)
- Kernel tails are cleared on host "suspend" command and not on "resume" command
- Graphic interface cpu load reduced. Further optimizations are planned.
- NODROP mode for Sonar and Fruity in the MAST page (press SAVE after).

http://www.acusticaudio.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&o p=getit&lid=703

--------------------------------------------

Sonar users and Multiprocessor mode

1 - Enter the MAST page (click on MAST)
2 - Change the NODROP parameter to 1 yes
3 - Press SAVE

Repeat the procedure for "Nebula2 free" and for "Nebula2Reverb free".
Pros:  Multiprocessor mode supported
Cons: The host will not report the CPU load for reverbs any more

Nebula2 free 1.2.800

http://www.acusticaudio.com/admin.php?op=DownloadModify& lid=786


New features: status bar working when nebula loads programs.
New features/bug fix: the host doesn’t freeze any more (at loading time). You are able to stop/re-start your sequencer in the meanwhile.
New bug/fixes: new engine “mutex” routines and variables..
New feature: new engine for the performance indicator.
New feature: skinnable interface
New feature: 64bit wave support (here and in the wdeconvolver/nebulasampler). Tomorrow I’ll post a new gift!

All these new features were tested a lot, but we changed many lines of code: this version could have new bugs, never seen before. Please report bugs/mistakes, I’m leaving the old version in the download page, so you will be able to revert to the old one if necessary.


How to set the AquaSkin

Nebula has the same skin as before:

http://www.acusticaudio.com/uploads/75/0/VER12800_1.jpg

But if you edit the XML descriptor (“Nebula2Reverb free.xml” and “Nebula2 free.xml” in your Vstplugins$ directory):

http://www.acusticaudio.com/uploads/75/0/VER12800_2.jpg

and change the SKINNAME from “SkinN2fClassic” to “SkinN2fAqua” you get this:

http://www.acusticaudio.com/uploads/75/0/VER12800_3.jpg

At the moment Nebula loads only BMP (PNG will supported soon), the transparent colour is magenta (255, 0, 255). Just edit those examples in your SKINS folder (located in your NebulaTempRepository$)

Official Nebula2 1.2.800b

http://www.acusticaudio.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&o p=getit&lid=749

This is really really stable and working on
centrino
dual core (duo)
xeon
Pentium IV
celeron

The multiprocessor issue on Sonar is solved completely.
Stability was improved again.
The perfomance indicator works also for Centrinos or for power-management configurations.
The performance% IS how much of a SINGLE cpu is used. So for a common dual core system or xeon 15% means 15% of a single processor -> 7% of the total power.

----------------
There is a new gift, a Small Plate. It shows a preset made with our new deconvolver, based on the new 64 bit wav support.
It was sampled using a 32 bit card, but since then everything was calculated using a full 64 bits path, without bottlenecks.
It works only with the new engine. It was limited to .950 sec in the original PCM unit, and they are 22 Mbytes.
If you wish a longer tail just tell me, I'll upload a bigger version (it's only a matter of downloading time)
