Nebula programs made from old tube radios, sampled with various techniques to get many different types of results. These libraries come with lots of flavors, and are some of the thickest/most obvious tone programs you’ll find for Nebula!
Frequency Tweekers 1$12.00
Two effects. An LP filter and an EQ/freq specific harmonic exciter… AKA multi-band distortion.
Springs and Things Bundle$88.50
This bundle contains some spring reverbs and a few other types of reverbs, usually of a lo-fi nature. Of note is the ‘Sooper Time Tube’ library which contains the Sooper Time Tube ‘doubler’ effect as well as some junky lo-fi analog ‘reverbs’. The ‘Nolard’ Spring reverb is one of my most popular products.
***If you already have some of these libraries, you can email me about getting the others at a discount, using the product inquiry contact form. The offer will depend on my judgement based on what you already have, but you can expect somewhere around 17% off for the libraries which you don’t already have.
Tube Amp EQ & Filter FX$16.00
(NOTE- this set was formerly known as ‘Frequency Tweakers B’ so if you already have that, you already have this). An old Philco 6-tube amplifier has been extensively sampled to use as a unique tone-shaping tool in Nebula. Much time and effort went into making sure that the end results were faithful to the classic sounding hardware, which was sold with several phonograph consoles back in the 1950’s. For the main portion of this library, the EQ, it was sampled in 3 different hardware setups, for 3 different flavors. The ‘bass’ knob mostly acts as an adjustable high pass, and ‘treble’ as a shelf. Together they can also be used to create ’tilt-like’ eq setups (check the freq response graphs in manual to see what’s possible). The filter FX side of the library is a (nice) bonus.
Tube FM 1 – Direct Out$19.00
The sound characteristics of 4 table-top tube radios and 2 tube radio tuners were captured to be reproduced through Nebula. These radios date to the 1950s. Two different FM transmitters were used to sample the radios, but some cases the signal was sent directly into the radios’ circuitry. The tuners have RCA outputs which were used, but the table-top radios don’t. For those, the signal was taken from the speaker leads, after they were disconnected from the speakers.
Tube FM 2 – Mic’d$17.00
The sound characteristics of 4 table-top tube radios and 2 tube radio tuners were captured to be reproduced through Nebula. These radios date to the 1950s. As with the programs in Tube FM 1, two methods were used to get the signal into the radios so they could be sampled: FM transmission and inserting the signal directly into the radios’ circuitry.
The difference between this and Tube FM1, is that here, microphones were used to capture the signal after it passed through the radios, placed in front of their speakers (or with the case of the tuners, speakers connected to the tuners). Three mics were used- an AT2020, a XM8500, and an Akai ADM-6.
Tube FM 3 – Tube Radio Reverbs$17.50
Six tube radios were used to produce a set of unique, colorful, “vintage” sounding reverb effects.
