How to get the best sound quality mixing with Nebula and Acqua plugins (tutorial)

UPD. The guide is deleted, cause it needs more testing.

I wrote a short guide about it.

Interesting post.

I can't comment further until I do a A/B test ...

What WOULD have been nice/convenient ... had you posted an A/B audio file. [hint] ;)

2. Another point of question would be identifying how and where you derived which XML parameters, and the modified setting values.

3. There is no mention, speaking of N-4, of any possible changes on the KERN page. This would be where LTIMED mode would be switched. The 2 modes of 'Classic' and 'SPLITH' handle LTIMED differently.

Look forward to the conversation.

I think it needs more testing. So I will delete this guide for a while. Sorry.

I would love to checkout suggestions for improved rendering.
Maybe later then:)

I'm not sure what you really mean by achieving the 'sound of hardware'?
EQs, comps, reverbs, saturation, or just everything more detailed ?

At what sample rate are you testing?
Besides A/B, I believe a null-test would be quite revealing in this sort of experiment.
