this is interesting...

its quite subtle until you spend a bit of time with it...I cranked out the meters to see what its doing...
What is most apparent is seems like a sweetening in the highs, fullness in the lows - and the mids slightly pulled back...basically it makes it sound sweeter to me...a nice 'pro' sounding sheen...

Problem is its not so nice to use...and the point where it over-compresses appears to come out of nowhere quite quickly.....what with little feedback (and cant use the makeup gain to work out the GR either)...but I guess good practice to use the old ears!

overall I like it...but would be nice not to fly so blind...

I like what it does to top-end, but seems like it rolls lows quite a bit. Don't hear much compression (not -7dB the prog display shows).

A program with a more flat freq. curve would be very usefull. I rarely have to add that much high freq to a full mix. The compression sounds nice.

Hi folks!

I know that the final version is not ready yet, but for those (like me) who never heard a M****y Vari-Mu in action, I've found an interesting thread on the net.

From a guy named "Roc Mixwell"

"files are 48/24, passed out of a DA16x and back into a AD16x."

Ive listened to this now and its very interesting. That Vmu has much more hi-end. Just like we said about this neb-version so I guess the sound is there! :)

Thanks for all the positive feedback so far, I'll have a beta2 ready shortly.
As far as the frequency curve is concerned I'm going to keep true to the hardware. It has a mild Low/Highed boost. 1 or 2db generated from the tube design itself(not an EQ.)

Make it 1 dB boost then ;-)

Tried it for some subtle mastering compression followed by some high freq attenuation from the Pultec from Alex B. Worked out great!
