When I got the chance to test it earlier last month on a friends PC (I'm OS X and Logic here) it was a dream come true as far as where the technology is going...
Not to take any credit from the other developers but making this the first commercial release of a standalone product is an innovative way to really push the technology to a wider user base.
What a perfect first start too, because Nice EQ in tube mode is literally one of my favorite eqs for soft synths. The GUI was a fresh take on an old familiar friend in the studio with amazing response and the CPU/RAM hit was very very reasonable.
Major kudos to Michael for doing yet another superb job on this release.
Very excited to see what he has in the future, and have been testing a new offering to much surprise on my last project I mixed...
Only a guess but I'm hoping all we're waiting for is Gian to put the finishing touches for an AU release on the OS X side of things.
Wow, thanks for that! Yes, it should work very well on 64bit systems. If it runs as well in true 64 then a 64 version will be made later. If any other versions are made later (Mac or x64) they will be a free update to customers of the stand-alone. Right now, 32bit processing for Windows is the most widely stable.
Regarding version quality- it runs like reverb-version Core II for best rendering.
