Re: Why N4 takes twice as long to load a patch than Nebula 3

Thanks to the forum moderator for making the above post a new thread, but please could the title be changed to "Why does N4 take twice as long to load a patch than Nebula 3?" The current title sounds like a reason/solution is available in the thread, which isn't the case.

Why N4 takes twice as long to load a patch than Nebula 3

I guess the question now that it's all working, is why it (N4, not setups) takes twice as long to load a patch than Nebula 3? My 4K Black chain (HPF, LF, LMF, MF, HMF, HF) takes 12 seconds to load using N4 and SetUps, whereas the same chain takes only 6 seconds using Nebula 3. Any way to narrow the ...

Re: N4 SetUps Fail on Mac High Sierra

Success!! :D

Deleted the the whole N4 installation and re-installed from Aquarius. Using all the same paths, it now works fine. I get a dialog box to enter the admin password when I save the setup (this didn't happen before).

Many thanks for your help guys!

Re: N4 SetUps Fail on Mac High Sierra

I have full access to the N4 repository folder and I can see the setup is created inside 'Setups' (.n4setup and .xml) It just doesn't create the VST and it's associated .xml inside /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/N4 SetUps/, to which I also have full access. It doesn't seem to matter where I create this...

Re: N4 SetUps Fail on Mac High Sierra

Me too had that issue on HS, until I changed the paths. (inside N4 directory I created a custom folder _N4-SETUPS to keep them organized). This is NOT the default setting. This setting works for me: This didn't work for me i'm afraid. Do you really have your original N4 plugin installed at: /Librar...

N4 SetUps Fail on Mac High Sierra

Been trying to get N4 SetUps to work on Mac High Sierra (no problem on Win7x64). Always fails with the message 'Error creating VST2 setup configuration file'

I've tried moving the N4 SetUps folder to the Desktop- same result. Any ideas?

Re: Nebula3ZL and *DSPBUFFER*

I try to stay on a buffer of 256 because it produces a (just) manageable latency if I have to overdub the odd MIDI instrument at mix time. Also, since Pro Tools 11, the output (process) buffer is fixed and changing the input buffer in the Playback Engine settings doesn't have the same impact on CPU ...

Re: Efficient DAW to work with Acqua and Nebula

Fair point. OSX has always been heavy on the overheads- a quick look at the Geekbench browser for my processor (4770K) brings that home :cry: I think OSX Nebula users are looking for performance that is less 'spiky'- a problem with the AAX versions and the main limit on the number of instances that ...

Re: Efficient DAW to work with Acqua and Nebula

Many thanks for the enlightening comments folks. It's made it clear to me that the real performance divide here is between OS X and Windows, and within OS X between VST and AAX/AU. Of course, newer processors with more cores and refined instruction sets will all enhance performance, but I can't help...

Re: Efficient DAW to work with Acqua and Nebula

Jfjer, do you have some comparative evidence that shows the increase in performance in Nebula using 5th or 6th generation processors over 4th generation? or is it just wishful thinking and hearsay? I rather think that Nebula's issues on OS X have more to do with coding for that particular environmen...

Re: Efficient DAW to work with Acqua and Nebula

Thanks for the info.

Which Windows version would you recommend for optimal performance, assuming a 4th generation i7 processor?

Giancarlo, does Nebula/Acqua perform better on Windows than OS X?
