CUDA-->OpenCL AMD conversion

Given that the new MacPro is going with two monster AMD GPUs as standard, it would be fantastic were the CUDA elements of Nebula to be ported to the AMD side. AMD provides this helpful resource that makes the conversion sound not-so-bad: http://developer.amd.com/resources/heterogeneous-computing/ope...

Re: Cupwise release: Rayphlex 661x2 A stereo compressors

Cupwise wrote: i did get lucky with that- the fact that the H1 impulses came out so short, which is almost certainly because of the extreme transparency of the units. so as far as these comps go, i don't see any 'tradeoff', since i didn't have to sacrifice anything to do it. but i guess the 'tradeo...

Re: Cupwise release: Rayphlex 661x2 A stereo compressors

I tried the community version and yes, it compresses like an algo compressor. Congrats Tim! Playing devil's advocate, though, I need to ask what tradeoffs are occurring here, if any. My guess is that it's no accident that you chose a relatively clean compressor to sample for this release. Am I corre...

Re: Nebula Compressors

Yes, Henry's Mojo series is hi-res harmonic distortion from dynamics processors, but with no dynamics.

If you're restricted to clean donationware compressors, other than vladg's stuff (Molot, Limiter No 6) there's also Slim Slow Slider's C3 multiband compressor and MeldaProduction's MCompressor.

Re: Nebula Compressors

Caveat: if you need to just flatten the crap out of a track, don't bother with Neb's compressors; go algo for that.

Re: Nebula Compressors

On the issue of which algorithmic comps to pair with Nebula comps in order to compensate for Nebula's difficulty with transients, I would say: none, because what you want is something that fills in Neb's weak point and then gets out of your way. That's not a comp but, instead, a limiter, saturator o...

Re: Nebula Compressors

The answers to all your questions are in Enrique's Understanding Compressors Tip of the Month thread, the link to which is itself in the thread I link to above.

Re: Nebula Compressors

SWAN - see: http://www.acustica-audio.com/forum/index.php?f=13&t=6003&start=0&rb_v=viewtopic You've got the general idea - Nebula isn't very good for substantial, predictable compression, and it does not handle transients well at all. Ideally you want to use a clean, fast algo compressor, limiter or...

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

if you see a 'flashing arrow' next to the samplerate display on the main Nebula GUI ... then you know the conversion failed. And thus better to just avoid any kind of Neb Src at all if possible. No. Conversion failures are nearly always due to the fact that Nebula didn't have enough time to convert...

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

I like to upsample everything to 96k (if it was not already recorded that way) using Izotope at highest quality setting, then mix and/or master, and output a 96k file, then downsample again using Izotope. After many A/B comparisons, on my system, this gives the best sound over any other conversion ...
