Basically soundwise nebula cannot be better. If we improve it we get something different, your libraries would not be backward compatible, you would get something different.
Even on cpu performances you cannot do any better: if it would be possible we would cheat. It means we can have something faster and we are not updating. Yes actual version is pretty old, we are betatesting new dll and there is a little improvement here and there, especially on loading time.

In order to use the new tech the library should be written differently, like we are doing now. It means that nebula can be core23414, but if the library is just core5 basically I would not expect a miracle.

For example: our compressors are 10 time lighter on cpu now. Anyway on acqua plugins we are pushing the tech so much and we are using the new performance boost for being more accurate.

So the sampling process and sound quality remain the same, it's mostly lighter cpu load and better reproduction of the library, like faster attack in compressors etc.

So what is a "core version" then and which version is n4? I assume a core is something like an incremental upgrade like 3.6 or 3.7 or 3.8 and nebula 4 will be running on core 9, so core 9 would actually be 4.0 in that perspective?

One last thing, what's that with all the coupon's in the emails? Is it for customers who spent 500€+ already or for other customers too?

Cheers!

Core9

Basically we compile a single executable, and today it is core9.
Actual engine is "nebula3 1.4.103".
Nebula4 is a gui wrapper, with new functionalities. It loads an engine, basically a nebula 3 engine/dll.
Today nebula 3 client/server is core9. Nebula 3 pro is still core6.
Nebula3 client could load an acqua plugin. It is called "universal acqua". But you need a gui wrapper for exposing all functionalities, due to limited capabilities of nebula 3

Thanks Giancarlo, one last question: What would be the advantage of loading an aqua plugin into Nebula 4?

You can tune it in new ways... You have access to internal instances
You have also a single browser.
But the most important one: there will be acqua plugins which will not run without nebula 4.

Sorry Giancarlo, I understand that Nebula server is core9?? Is reallu this?? the last version has not been updated since December last year (30.11.2015). As might be core9 ?? Or am I misunderstanding or something fails me. And since we are, nebula 3 server is to upgrade?

I think he means N4 Server will be Core9.

Nebula4
We'll update nebula3 but without multi-instance code, so basically it is a core7

Giancarlo, will nebula4 have the capability to replace setups? I seem to recall reading something about it. Creating custom dll and autoloading presets?

Thanks. Your work is incredible!

Yes. Think Franci, Nebula Setup developer, is Nebula4 developer.

Yes we'll post news asap - so all features included in the first release
We are still evaluating if nebula is the correct product for b Friday or christmas. There is an overlapping of products in November and December, we'll post the correct order soon (coral, nebula4, lime, titanium2, amethyst3)
We have internal meetings these days, we are trying to understand the best schedule
Nebula will be core9, the new engine supports dynamic sample rate and finally a preset browser and maybe the mast page translated in a more readable form. Realistically we'll support acqua plugins in February.
First skinned library will be the commercial library, but we are going to help developers asking for skinning of simple things (preamps, reverbs)
