The latest Nvidia drivers for the correct cards come with CUDA stuff already in it. I don't think there is an additional downloads needed.

What are the correct cards? I'm looking at the following:

All NVIDIA GPUs released since Nov 2006 are CUDA-capable.

Ummm :roll:

Check out CUDA-Enabled GPU Products page and Then this (for example)

Do you see card with less then 256 MB :?:

Enlighten me pliz...

I have an Quadro FX 560 card.
In theory, a fairly strong card (for my type of uses)
In reality... not enough RAM --> not CUDA for me :?

Here is a technical question regarding Cuda enabled cards and the 4 gig switch. FOr those of us who are locked into the world of XP 32 bit, the 3 gig switch has been a godsend. I have three uad-1 cards which are PCI cards. Each card needs to have some of the memory allocated , I believe it is about 128 megs per card which is then subtracted from the available memory. If I add a 256 meg cuda enabled card do I have t subtract a further block of 256 megs of memory from the 3 gig switch line?

Incidentally , Nebula also supports Cuda enabled cards for some of the presets.

If the plugin is used in a sequencer with latency compensation you won't notice the latency at all.


I don't understand these statements at all. If you play anything, you'll notice the latency. If you change any parameter, you'll notice the latency. It's always there, the compensation only means that it makes the output sound like there's no unsync between the tracks.

So yes, you WILL notice it.

But it's not that bad :)

Of course, if you play live, you will notice it for sure.

But I create my tracks in Cubase and the compensation means, that the plugin has its correct timing.

Yes, i do the same. But don't you ever "play" the notes in to the sequencer? If not then any kind of latency has no difference at all, except to the reaction time of you pressing the "play" button and the playback starting.

So i don't understand why to care about latency if not for the things that the latency actually has some effect on. :?



Ah i, think i took the sentence a bit out of it's context. The question was basicly about the syncing of tracks. And that is what indeed happens. Sorry.
I've just seen that thing said too many times...
Sorry for going offtopic :oops:
..and being stupid :D

Giancarlo from Acustica advises to use a card with as much memory as possible. It's probably more important with Nebula than with this plug-in since Nebula's impulse collections are much larger than standard impulses.

btw, I'm now looking at getting the following card since users are reporting it to have a quieter fan:

For my IR plugin, even 256MB are enough, as the memory consumption is not the problem. The processing power will be maxed out before the memory.
