Mac version of N.A.T. sampler?

Post by pherson » Thu Nov 04, 2010 7:57 am

I went ahead and bought Nebula3Pro the other day, I didn't observe that the sampler only is available for Windows, bummer...

Will you release Mac version, and if so, when?

I was about to sample my Bricasti M7 :(

Hello Enrique,

I'm new to this forum and working on a mac. It is a massive bummer we're being excluded in this way. I understand it's a load of extra work to do the os x version of the N.A.T. Sampler, but aren't there lots of people working with music using Macs! Please include us in this amazing development that is Nebula.

there is a workaround:
install windows in a virtualmachine on mac. install nat there.
choose offlinesampling and export the generated testtones to your mac.
in your daw, play out the testtones to the device you want to sample and record back.

go back to the virtualmachine and let nat deconvolve the recorded file and make your programs.

i know it is a little complicated, but this can make it happen until nat is rewritten and ported to mac (which may take a while).

best,

Hi Mathias,

which virtualization software did you use? I tried what you suggest some time ago with Crossover, but NAT's GUI wasn't functioning properly. I never thought about trying that again, but now that I read your post from February I'm curious what you used.

crossover is not the right tool. it is tailored to specific software, to be run directly in osx.
you need a "real" virtualization of a windows os.
i use virtual box, it is free and does the trick. you need a legit windows version though, but that is easy to get.

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

download the osx version AND the extension pack and install it.
then with a windows installation disk you can create a virtual installation of windows. in there, you can then install nebula pro which will have nat installed.
directsampling may not be possible, as audiodrivers won't bridge properly, but you can always use "offline" sampling. this creates the testones which you can use in any daw and run them through some hardware you want to sample and record the output. then you can import those recordings back into nat and deconvolve it to nebula programs.
be sure, that you have some time and patience for that. there will probably be some failures in the beginning. nat has its quirks you need to get to know ... ;)

good luck! don't hesitate to ask further questions.
