Re: Console and tape emulation at 88.2--is it worth it?

Thanks. I think I will go ahead and upsample to 96k and work from there. My little CPU will continue to grow more and more angry with me, but that's life. :-)

Can't wait to finally work on a project with all of these emulations!

Re: Console and tape emulation at 88.2--is it worth it?

Just so I'm clear on your point, you think the sample rate conversion (whether it's from within Nebula or done elsewhere) is not going to have much effect on the quality, and that whatever loss there may be in the SRC is worth accepting in order to get the benefit of the emulations?

Console and tape emulation at 88.2--is it worth it?

Hi all,

Just looking for some opinions. I have a session at 88.2kHz and would so like to use some of the AlexB and CDSM emulations. I'm wondering, is it worth the sonic price of SRC (I have izotope) to upsample to 96kHz to be able to use the emulations?

Thanks,

Justin

Re: More Sample Rate Conversion

I didn't think about the effects of sample rate on the other plugins, but of course that makes sense! I'll redo these examples without those plugins to see what happens and re-post in a day or two. Thanks again. BTW, I never thought about the advantage of using 96k for sidechain analysis. Is the dif...

Re: And More Sample Rate Questions

As a fairly new Nebula user, and one who really does not understand the details of whatever is going on under the hood, I would just like to say that I would be more than happy to pay double for sample collections in order to have programs at multiple sample rates. While I understand that 96k is the...

Re: More Sample Rate Conversion

Okay, so I have excerpts from a mix here: http://www.justinmorell.com/filesforwhatever/conversion_comparison.zip These are both 44.1 files, 24 bit. The one labeled "no_96k" was processed as follows: the original 48k file was converted to 44.1 in Sample Manager with izotope, then imported to Logic. I...

Re: More Sample Rate Conversion

Thanks guys for the ideas/discussion. Very helpful. Right now I am working with the files in 44.1, but I'm going to batch convert the 48k source files to 96k and plug them into the same Logic file, with the same settings, etc., to hear the difference. There are two tracks that I'm mastering with two...

More Sample Rate Conversion

I know that SRC has been addressed quite a lot on this forum, but I'm still unclear on a few things. I am a new Nebula 3 Pro user, and trying to get a handle on this: I have some mixes already at 48k, which I will ultimately need to convert to 44.1k. I have Sample Manager, which I know does a very g...
