G 20 Master bus is fantastic !!!
The "GoTo" preset is the one that really surprised me. It has a pretty deep dip I think around 750Hz...So apparently I never realised just how nasal my electric guitars were sounding with too much of this!

Easy to pass by it thinking it's a bit too extreme but get used to it for a minute and then switch it in and out.
If affecting other instruments negatively just stick it on a guitar bus and put another more neutral one on the master but often seems to work nicely on the mix with a few tweaks.

Amazing work Henry...A gold medal for you sir!

Thanks Grim,
:D

This afternoon I am sending out the next library to Beta testers ( scheduled for Monday release ). It is the G-20 Bass chain and if you liked the NV Bootsified bass chain this will no doubt make a superlative partner. It will knock your socks off - it has knocked mine off. Especially the 192 khz presets - if you regularly work at 96 khz - do try the 192 khz presets in your project. Amazing!! Of course as of recently all my libraries have 192 khz, 96 khz and 44.1 khz as standard. I am working backwards to bring the absent rates to all libraries.

I am running it through its paces on a mix I have been working on for a few months and I am blown away. I really can't believe how good Nebula/ITB bass can sound.

I think for those who ever dreamed of a GeeMeLL console hack ITB, then the G-20 series is the closest you can get to it. :lol: Already have Acoustic and Master buss - coming later are vocals, piano,kick drum, snare drum, strings, brass, toms and perhaps a few more. Watch this space and let the naysayers miss out.

Another Monday,

Another daughter, :D Another round of launches. Sigh ;). Very excited about this bunch as I can see some nice mixes coming your way. I have a bunch of interesting colours today.

Firstly - The Buzzard sees the set completed for a start. The hardware is pronounced Kullcher Vullcher. Capable of giving you a fuller, valvey, beefy, tapish sound it can also be used to knock off that harsh digital high end. You can use it on busses to make them less harsh and fuller and on bass and especially drums. Acoustic guitars take on a heavenly tone.Rhodes, organs and all electronic keyboards will sit right in the mix. Just use anywhere you want a fuller fatter sound. This time it is 96 khz and 44.1 khz only. I will upgrade the old one.Please note my advice about gain staging as I have gone for MAX distortion and also using a Tube emulation plugin in front of it. Transient peaks will overshoot if they are above a certain threshold. On transient light material you could crank it all the way but it may have artifacts depending on program material. My advice - lower the input level to -10 dbs and then work from there. You will be so close to a genuine analog distortion if you get the levels right. Nebula can only do so much however.There are varying sounds that differ from sample rate to sample rate. In other words the same preset may distort more at 44.1 khz than at 96khz and it varies across the range.

Secondly - the Toob pack. The simplest sampling I have ever done. It is in stereo and should give you a nice Master bus preamp as well as a colour to smoothen your individual tracks.

The Soloist pre sees bigger brother make an appearance. The SixTen valve preamp at your service. Simply an expansion on the dual version of the preamp with a few shelves thrown in.

Saving the best for last. The G-20 Bass chain. 8-) The purest signal from me to you on bass. You will either get it or you won't. I think you will love it. Wide overlapping bands and the cleanest DI available.

Enjoy everyone. ;)

Henry Olonga releases The Toob Pack PRE. .Not a boutique preamp at all but perfect to scatter across a mix and your Master bus may thank you.

Wow.. This is insane.. just started browsing through presets in G-20 library and came here to comment and just saw how many new releases appeared.. :shock: :P nice!! Ok, so before I go to paypal and start downloading these I just want to say G20 has become my favourite mixing tool overall. I guess, dealing with all those colorful libraries I forgot how nice can things sound passing through clean eqs/preamps.. GML bass library sounds really impressive, most of presets cleans all the mud I ever wanted to clean, while adding nice beefy low-end and extends highs a bit in a very natural way. NV bass works different, adding much more colour in the beginning.. so it depends what one wants at the moment, but it still amazes me how effortless and natural an eq (and preamp) can sound.

I just have to agree 100%. I also wanted to add that all of Henry's presets are becoming VERY regular in every mix lately. I love the clean stuff as much as the colorful. And on a related but slightly broader Nebula topic; Just this morning I loaded up an empty Nebula instance and was looking through my vast collection.... other than being a little embarrassed because I have so much...... I feel so lucky to be part of this specific era and technology of digital ITB audio.

Here are demo files of the G-20 Bass and Buzzard presets for anyone interested. Added to the product page as well.

Mp3 only I am afraid but you'll get the idea. Fender bass guitar originally recorded in 24 bit 96 khz through the 1073 DMP and eqed with the 5033.

Download them here

I'm curious about the differences between the 3 Buzzards. I read over everything, but I can't figure it out :oops:

One is pentode-1 distortion one is triode distortion and other one is pentode-2 basically pentode one and two are just different set-up of the circuit, for different sound I think.

Check out this picture you will see why.

I checked those buzzarda and they are very different from another :)
I like p2 the most. Punchy as hell :shock:
T is also very nice but softer than p2 . Btw p1 is the most transient taming ...somethin like that :mrgreen:

I started to write a review of sorts for one of Henry's recent releases, and then realized a few things;
1)There are so many so often and I can't write about ALL of them separately.
2)They are ALL so good, which is more worthy od a review??

So I decided that I COULD review all of them, but at once. Here it is, short and sweet.
I have all of Henry's libraries, except for a few of the tape sim libraries. I do have some of the Tape sim presets, just not all of them. But I do have everything else (a bit embarrassed too, I am not made of money but with his quality and prices, I can't not get them...lol). And I was asked by Henry to be sure to mention that I have been beta testing the last few, so I am not completely impartial (I love his stuff, that's why I asked him if I could help out!). So with all of that darn honesty on the table, my thought s and recommendations are that these libraries (yes, all of them) sound amazing, are a stupidly great value, and are so useful that it it's ridiculous. If you primarily know all digital audio, you will be amazed at how great your audio can sound and not cost much money. If you are like me and are partly over-joyed about being involved in digital audio at this specific time in audio technology history, you will be as amazed at the sound and also astonished at how "analog-y" and "organic" your ITB mixes can be. I don't like to use those cheesy analogies, but it's true this time.
So for the pennies Henry asks for his work (and it going to charity nonetheless!!), buy these presets and get ready to fall in love with sound all over again.

richie43, what are your favorite libraries from Henry? I've been eyeballing these for a while, but I don't know what the presets do and I don't understand whether or not these pieces of hardware were sampled at 96khz, or converted to 96khz from 192khz files. I'm new to Nebula, so I wonder how that affects the sound.

Those GML bass clips were great. They really made me wanna buy the program. They showed me exactly what that program can do. Are there also clips of the A*I channel strip programs somewhere? I'm trying to decide between the GML and the A*I.

I am not saying this to promote Henry or to be evasive, but my favorite libraries from Henry are all of them. For real. And they are really, really inexpensive, so get a few and you decide what works best for you. But even a library that is not my favorite will get more use than any algorithmic plugin in my arsenal. For real again.
I may be able to post some A*I samples soon. But you can't go wrong. If money is super tight for you, just pick one and buy it, it will be a valuable asset for your audio no matter what it is. And when you have a few more pennies (they don't cost much more than that) get another one!
