Screw my previous comment. I broke down and bought VMR. I do have some other UAD plug ins that sound quite similar to the VMR plugs but I am very impressed with these plug ins. They really sound fantastic, all have their own character and the best part of all, they take very little CPU! My UAD Neve is awesome, but I can't hardly run anything else with it with my Apollo it's such a hog. VMR pretty much just eliminated all my other channel strips. Great work on this one Steven. Keep up this amazing work! Looking forward to the next FG-X I've been reading all about in your emails. Can't wait to hear it.
