Well, this is the whole package fully working.... 6 drums tracks, 1 track of elec guitar doubled and hardpanned, 1 track bass guitar. I love 70´s sound, all tracks have studer 15 ips tb+ and VTM with an input from N14. The bass and guitars has A5D with no compression, only for colour. The room mono track has N64 in limit mode, release 100ms with a lot of limiting!!! It sounds thick and lovely!!! The OH tracks has the N64 in compressor mode, ratio 4:1 with 2-3db GR, there is NO COMPRESSION in snare or kick drum. Then I sent guitars to a submix buss and drums to another one, in each subgroup patched a N54 with no compression, only for colour. Master: FAT mix buss from N14, ATR tape from cdsoundmaster 15ips. Mastering with real hardware: footecontrol p3s and gyraf g14 eq and invisible limiter (barely working) from AOM plugin.
It´s a quick demo, so don´t be too hard on the playing (a little lousy) and I left the drums alone at the end of the demos so youn can see they sound without bass and guitars.

To my ears there is quite a difference between V1 and V2. V2 sounds more open and 3D. Besides that though (probably due to the new sampling process/tech) to me this version has more of the feel/sound of an original N**e EQ than V1, I always felt that there was a 'fatness' missing from the first version that I associate with N**e EQ's (which is why I love them so much. Tim's Gyrator was the first that really gave me that). Basically, for the first time ITB we now have the fat gorgeous silky sound of arguably the most sort after EQ in the history of recording .
I'm waiting on the N54 download link still but will be auditioning it on the usual suspects first - vocal, drum bus, and master. I may be able to post samples in the next few days.
Meanwhile, the console and EQ upgrades are definitely worthwhile. I'm actually liking to use the n73 along with the UA version, as they are slightly different in character. The UA version can get very distorted in mic input mode, which sounds great in parallel on bass and drums or for a special effect voice. The v2 n73 is just fat and smooth, you can really hit massive 10+dB boosts and get great results. The high shelf is even silkier than v1. Running it with the n14 line inputs and just 1-2dB of boost opens everything and brings a nice presence to sounds without sounding like they've been processed at all.
