So, many years ago I’ve heard of this Nebula VST but whenever I actually get the free version and try it, my computer could not put up with it. I see t praised on many audio forums for the wonderful analog emulations, brilliant ….whatever, so, I decided yesterday to try it again.
Got the free version and installed it. My impressions are not really positive.
- crashes whenever I run it in same project with T-Raks or plugins from Nomad Factory
- all amp, preamp, tape and tube emulations don’t really do anything to the sound
- compressors don’t really act like compressors
- reverbs are a bad joke
- the “liquid” slider doesn’t do anything, maybe some bad artifacts in one reverb program
- when I run together with plugins that use same engine I have bursts of high pitched noise and my mixer channels go on red and stay there even after the sound stopped

Now, I see so many people being amazed by it that it makes me wonder, am I getting the bad results only?
What’s your experience with it?

Sorry Mihai for been late ;-) Unfortunately my DAW can´t find the fresh installed VST. No chance to get it work. The problem must be in front of the display or between my ears….Don´t know why.

Nebula is the best plugin that I have and I sometimes don’t use any other plugins in my mixes because IMHO nothing comes close in terms of audio quality.

BUT ….

Nebula is a beast and if you don’t know how to handle it it won’t do you any favour.

It is very subtle and unfortunately the usability is a nightmare. But in the end it’s worth it, at least for me ;-)
