Is this possible on the Mac version of Nebula? If not, how can I get the most out of these libraries?
I heard you can't copy the Audio Units. So if you are using Audio Units, you could modify the "Nebula 3.xml", since you might not use Nebula 3 otherwise and backup the old Nebula3.xml. Also, you could wrap the VST using FXPansion's wrapper or the free VST to AU wrapper and then create a copy and rename it. The VST, wrapped by FXPansion wrapper, works even better than the native AU.

I use the VST version much more than the AU. So, does that mean there's a way to copy the VSTs and make customized instances of Nebula for libraries like this on a mac? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I know it can be done on the Win version but I'd really like to be able to do it. Any Mac users care to chime in?

Interested to hear more about the wrappers too... thx! :D

Yes it works. But you have to change one number in the <MAGIC> within the copied xml. For example before "s20c" after "s21c". And then you can wrap it if you need it as an Audio Unit.

Cool, thanks! I need to find out how to do this. A little scary since I've never edited anything Nebula-wise before. Don't want to botch anything up... :lol:

Don't worry, just backup these files before you change them.
