N4 vs Aqua - Time to move on?

Post by darren » Mon May 25, 2020 3:05 pm


Long time Nebula user here so I have a ton of libraries for it. In the last five or so years I have been working for a company that appreciates the qualities of the Aquas and so we have purchased nearly all of them over that time.

Recently I remembered Nebula and dug out my backups of the libraries and the memories came flooding back. Signal To Noise, Alex B, CDSoundmaster, Tim P .. Gemini .. etc etc. All have had lots of use since I first discovered Nebula (loooong time ago now it seems).

My question is, I suppose, given the amazing quality of the Aquas and their relative ease-of-use, do you think N4 is still valid? Is it still worth the hassle (it's always been pretty quirky with various workarounds and tweaks) - and I feel that Aqua has addressed those things and made life way simpler.

How do you all feel about N4 vs Aqua in these 2020's times?

Cheers to you all!

N4. N3 Server. Ultramarine. Scarlet. Sand. Pink 7236. Pink 2412. Pink. Ivory. Green. Aquamarine. Amethyst. Gold.

I do not know. I just purchased N4 on sale at 80%+ discount. BIG THANKS TO ACUSTICA FOR THAT DEAL!

From what I gather when I dare to go to the SlutZone, it seems like many long time AA/N4 users say that N4 and third party libraries STILL sound better than Acqua.
I will soon find out. I don't mind steep learning curves or setup times to use the best products. I do like the vast array of offerings from the third party providers.

It may be a while before I purchase an Acqua package again.

Are you selling N4 or any libraries? Looking...
