After repeated listens even the subtlety went away between the first three.
I would be interested to know which Nebula program you used for the example.
Would the artifacts be different with a different emulation? Say input program versus tape. I assume so.
I know this ground has been covered before. I am still trying to get a grasp.
From what I understand so far one must listen to each instance of Neb while adjusting the drive and input, until you find a sweet spot. Add another instance and repeat.
So that, by the time I have added Input, Pan, Tape and Tape boost I am listening for perhaps the maximum effect of each emulation, be it added punch or width (or hi freq roll off) that I can hear. And then make the call weather those adjustments add to the song as a whole?
Does that sound correct?
I'm not trying to be silly, but sometimes I wonder weather just an MTP-TFK is enough or if all the added harmonic, glueing benefit is what I should shoot for.
Ex: MTP, GLD, Pan, OTR, Boost, a touch of GEQ, a little W2B, and GLM.
I know it's ultimately up to me.

This is just a quick example and you should listen with good monitors to hear the ringing mentioned. It is similar to the sound of taking a phaser effect and stopping its position in the 4kHz-ish range.
First-dry, then one Neb instance for a nice saturation effect, then a little too much drive effect, then far too much drive effect. Hope this helps.
Would you consider posting a couple of files comparing a "proper" sounding chain versus one that has the "ringing sound, extended overemphasized bass response, or harsh booomph attack" that you describe?
My song projects are for fun rather than income, and I have a backlog I am enjoying learning Nebula on. But I have never sat behind a console, so I am at a disadvantage regarding what to listen for.
With individual tracks I have tried both; listening as each new insert is added, then rendering; and just sending a chain thru the renderer set at -18db and default drive settings in Nebula. Both seem to yield different but pleasing results.
Hope I am not hijacking
