hi i just noticed that on one of my reverbs (emt140) the reverb was sounding way more washed out than usual and was set at 4500cnv. Than rembered before i upgraded it was at 9000, which fixed it to sound right.. so got me worried about my settings for other programs, should all reverbs be at 9000?
also is it just reverbs that i need to worry about needing to be high, regular programs all ok around 4500?

I know I've asked this before but I don't recall the reason: why wouldn't the maximum you describe above be the default setting? Why would you by default want there to be conversions that could be skipped sometimes?
@ ngarjuna: If I recall correctly, the free preset of VNXT 140 will be converted OK with settings like 4500. But if you purchase the library, there are some longer presets, up to 5 seconds. I think I got some problems with the 4500 settings when I tried to load those, and increasing it to 9000 the problem was gone. I think it's mentioned/explained in the pdf of VNXT library?
But I have not quite understood why it's not defaulted to 9000. AFAIK the setting is not making my system slower, libraries that don't have to use 9000 to convert, are not taking longer to load, I think. The setting is only setting a kind of range, so that those libs who need longer time to convert will have that. But it's long time since I read those pdf's - I just set it to 9000 and it worked
But I have not quite understood why it's not defaulted to 9000.
Compatibility with old/slow CPU(s)
From many past discussions we've been told that RATE_CNV only affects sample rate conversions, nothing else; so on that basis I still don't understand how the current default is an advantage. Why would a slightly faster loading sample rate conversion be more important than making sure that every single program in every single library converted correctly every single time you instantiated?
