looks good, i am wondering what would stand out for a user of R2R?


1. please could you make a native 44.1 sampled version
2. please include the new trim function so we can easily judge the saturation level. be the 1st!


... and if you have access to the new technology to sample 20+ kernals then please do that! (we live in hope :)

While these are all good suggestions indeed, for me (as a long time user of the R2R) the stand out here is a totally brand new machine. But if it were a brand new machine with multiple sample rates and a nice trim function, even better.

Looking forward to this release, will keep my eyes and ears open. Be interesting to see (not comparing here) what the UAD Studder crowd will think as I suspect peeps will jump in with comparissons. As I have :P

Have several of your Nebula release, eagerly awaiting.

The Studer in the UAD collection is an A800 which is the same 2" machine that is already sampled in the R2R collection. Those are the two you would want to compare.

The 810 is a 1/4" machine, different can of worms.

Yes this is a 1/4" master recorder. Originally intended for stereo mixdowns/mastering. Uses more tape area then a the standard 2" 24trk for tracking. ( = higher quality) This is the equivalent of a 2" 16 track.
As you know Nebula give us the ability to easily do the impractical, like having as many 1/4" tracks as desired.
The fun thing about tape is that all machines sound different based on setup & tape formula.
I have a few other decks to capture as well.
*Studer A810, 1/4" 2track. (working on this now)
*Studer A820, 24 + 16track headstack
*Otari MTR-12 1/4" 2 Track
*STUDER A807 Mk II, 4 Channel 1/2"
*NAGRA 1/4" master recorder (love this guy)

Will you be sampling the Nagra next (I assume it's the IV-S)? -very nice sounding machine...

I don't think the A810 was originally intended for mastering. It was Studer's "compact" machine and was often used for broadcasting...
