STN - Powered Bus

Post by rhythminmind » Tue Dec 20, 2011 11:07 pm

Powered Bus – Nebula Program

Overview
  • Flattering bus processor suitable for both mix & mastering bus tasks. (Tape repro amplifier & euphoric transformer balanced Program EQ signal path)
  • Set Low frequency & “Air” Band enhancing EQ curve.
  • Sought after makeup gain/bus amplifier. Inspired by the Ampex tape deck repro push-pull circuit.
  • Elegant discrete components.
  • Stereo signal path/image.
  • Captured @ 24/96.
  • -20 & -18 calibration standards.

Back Story
  • This hardware is permanently across my master 2-bus (It’s not leaving anytime soon). I was wishing to use the same enhancement combination across sub bus paths as well. Hence this program was born.
Requirements
  • Nebula 3 pro

I bought this one right away too, and love what it is doing. But can anyone tell me where in their chain they are putting it? I know it doesn't matter; "If it sounds good it is good". But is this a buss out, a coloration after a buss out, an insert? Where would this go, or better, what would it be if this were hardware? I'm just geeking, thanks!

I recommend at the end of the master or group Bus chains, before any compression (if using any on the master). I suggest trying it from the start of a mix session, Might be surprised how much little EQ you use elsewhere.

Thanks Eric. Ok, a little more detailed question then; If I am mixing/mastering completely ITB and using Nebula to emulate the analog signal chain, would this preset go before or after a console out preset? I am guessing after....? Great sounding preset, by the way. You are a lucky guy to have all of that nice analog gear!

If your using a console Bus emulation as well, I would use it as part of the mastering chain post console.

Or replace the console emulation with the powered buss?

Yes, that would be a correct use.
