The Programs


N-10-7T3 CONSOLE CHANNEL EQ FOR NEBULA PRO consists of 8 Programs: You will find these under “CDS/7T3”. Go to the Sub-Category “EQ” to choose this collection of Console Channel “EQ” programs

Programs are sampled at 96kHz and are tested to retain accuracy at 44.1kHz and 48kHz sample rates with the latest version of Nebula Pro. They are designed to be used with the ‘Reverb’ instance of Nebula Pro.

A note about setting levels

Many people have questions about the best way to set up their audio files, DAW tracks, buss groups, or Nebula Pro plug-in and program libraries as it pertains to volume levels.

I will cover this topic more in depth in a blog, video, tutorial, and eBook time permitting.
What you need to know for now pertains to this collection and to other libraries created by CDS.

Because programs like this collection, often classified as “preamp” programs in NebPro, focus around the ability to recreate a very wide dynamic range from the original hardware device, you are able to choose your level-setting options however you wish, and you are still recreating the same levels from the hardware emulated.

This means that if you wish to process all of your files by normalizing them to a certain maximum or averaged volume, you may do so. If you wish to leave files at whatever levels they are recorded and set levels using DAW track faders, you can do so. If you wish to calibrate your DAW levels based upon a VU level based on an RMS, like -18dB=0 dBFS, or 0dB VU, or a -20dB, -24dB, -12dB weighting or any other setting, you will get the same analog response from the program you run inside NebPro.

The analog nature of these programs is not just based around the dynamic range and best average, min,. or max. level setting, but on the variants that are involved in analog that do not exist in digital. Specifically, this is in regards to “lighter” lower level settings versus pushing the gain “into the red”. The point is that analog tends to get a little more interesting, non-linear, and even driven or distorted, when pushed beyond a certain point.

If you place all attention on setting averaged levels to match a monitoring calibration, you may not be fully aware of the capabilities in coloring your sound intentionally, even subtly, by pushing levels a little harder. For this purpose, it is helpful for you to also know that my programs are edited to a max peak=real digital 0dB, meaning that you can take your files and push them all the way to 0dB digital and you are going into the most pleasant coloration of the analog signal without going over. So, no matter how you wish to run your files, levels, programs, you can choose to set low levels, averaged levels, or prevent from peaks going over, and you will get the same natural reaction from the NebPro programs from CDS.

Program Description:


N-10-7T3 EQ HI PASS

This program provides you with the 1073 High Pass EQ.
The first position leaves the EQ flat with no reduction in low frequencies. The second position is the high pass with a slope at 50Hz. The third position is the high pass with a slope at 80Hz. The fourth position is the high pass with a slope at 160Hz. Thr fifth position is the high pass with a slope at 300Hz.


N-10-7T3 EQ HI PASS CLEAN

This is the same as above without any harmonic distortion.


N-10-7T3 EQ HI SHELF

This program provides you with the 1073 High Shelf EQ.
This famous shelf eq is fixed at 12kHz with a +/- range of approximately 16dB.


N-10-7T3 EQ HI SHELF CLEAN

This is the same as above without any harmonic distortion.


N-10-7T3 EQ LOW SHELF

This program provides you with the 1073 Low Shelf EQ. The Low Shelf has a range of approximately +/-16dB boost and cut. The Frequency slope points are selectable from 35Hz, 60Hz, 110Hz, and 220Hz


N-10-7T3 EQ LOW SHELF CLEAN

This is the same as above without any harmonic distortion.


N-10-7T3 EQ MID BELL EQ

This program provides you with the 1073 Mid Range Bell EQ. The Mid Bell EQ provides approximately +/- 16dB of boost and gain. The 1073 has the signature of a wide base bell shape which sharpens into a narrow bell at the peak boost and gain settings. EQ Frequencies range from 360Hz, 700Hz, 1.6Khz, 3,2kHz, 4.8kHz, and 7.2kHz.


N-10-7T3 EQ MID BELL EQ CLEAN

This is the same as above without any harmonic distortion.

About The Hardware

About the N-10-7T3 CONSOLE CHANNEL EQ FOR NEBULA PRO

The original hardware that provides this wonderful, warm, rich eq is a classic 70’s “N” original British Console. This is the same console that has provided the N-10-7T3 Classic Console Collection with 2 separate channels of line and mic signal path chains, buss group, and main outs.

The EQ in this collection is a separate channel from the console, providing full use of the eq, but also including the entire signal path that leads to the eq and exits out of the eq.

I truly hope that this collection adds to your enjoyment of Nebula.


Thanks and God Bless You.
