At my signal, unleash HELL !!!

Post by giancarlo » Fri Nov 26, 2010 4:32 pm

We improved largely nat. We'll release this new version soon. The new technology is named AHD, which stands for "adaptive harmonic debugging"; if merged with microkernels it leads to incredible new features and opens to new possibilities.

I sampled a free plugin from voxengo at MAXIMUM drive. It would be an impossible task for nebula. I sampled AUTOMATICALLY and I got TWENTYONE kernels, (20 harmonics), perfectly matched (but less aliasing).
This beast runs at 10% nominal CPU, so just a bit more than 1% of CPU of my i7 core (8 virtual cores, and 10% was measured on a single logic core).

I think a new era is coming. Here pictures.

sounds interesting. How will this technology benefit us users? Any improvements on capturing compressors?

21 kernels!? Wow!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Oh my, incredible things are about to happen... looking forward to this. Thanks for working so hard to give us a better application year after year Giancarlo :)



Jesus... 21 kernels... lol...

So let Me see if I've got this one correct.

Vastly increased authenticity of classic analogue gear (hopefully compressors) at a greatly reduced load on the CPU?

Is that right?

it means higher distortion, better tube models, cabinets, guitar amps, heavy overdrive, better precision, reduced cpu load when tuned by the library developer, mixed techniques for sampling and cpu optimizations

Does that mean that each library developer will have to sample
EVERYTHING again ?

What's the time frame here Giancarlo ? When will we see it ?

timeframe: first library developer will have it within 48 hours. Yes they should sample things again, but I think they will sample something new (something which takes advantage from massive distortion). They could release microkernels without resampling, though. Less precision, though.

sounds promising but i assume this wont address the limitations when it comes to sampling compressors? Any updates on that? Cant wait for the first 1176!

no, it solves other issues. I could work on compressors too, but I was looking for something in the guitar fx segment. You have already fate compressor, but you miss a convincing overdrive

cool! If you could work on the compression side so Nebula can have fast comps like the 1176 and Distressor i think it will take over the world ;-)

Sampled guitar amps! To be able to sample my old VOX AC50. Great work Gian! Can't wait to hear the first results. I have a lot of guitar FX that could be sampled. My measurements hints that 20 kernels would be enough for a fuzz pedal.
