I can look at it. I am familiar with the piece. I will look at this of course if no-one does it soon.
I suggest that if you guys have any requests that you simply let me know on this thread. I will try and do whatever is reasonable - time allowing.

I'd love to see the fat bustard from thermionic culture done.. it's a summing box with plenty of nice distortion and a few special knobs for hi/lo shelves (i guess), attitude and drive..and some widening too if i remember. should be just enough for a decent neb library some time ago i tried to make an inception to AlexB.. he didn't confirm nothing so far
I assume your question is with reference to my tape sim libraries only. The TAPE sim I have on offer is ONE box with many different models. It has 4 tape machine models and 2 tape types. I sampled each machine model with each tape model so that gives you 8 packages.
I will give coupons in the future with promotions so that the tape library pack is discounted as a kind of bundle. Not by much mind you - maybe £ 5 off. So for £ 35 on promo you can have all the libraries and kind of get a similiar sound to the original box that costs 100 times more. Depends on whether you can live with the curiosity of not knowing how the other libraries sound because each pack is unique. My advice - naturally - get the whole lot! Other tape plugs will cost a lot more and not come close - again IMHO.
If I have misunderstood your question and it is a wider question comparing between my tape sim libraries and others - I think it is fair to say that subjectively ) mine have a smoother sound, higher resolution feel and more forgiving high end. I have tried to make presets that do no violence to the audio. So it depends on the genre of music you are mixing. If you are into acoustic music, folk, jazz, classical etc and work at 96 khz then you will appreciate the superb resolution but if you are into a more grungy sound with deeper bass, you may appreciate the other libraries as they make the sound more earthy. They all have their place IMHO and a comparison may shed light on that. I will get round to it one day but I am soooooo busy now. Perhaps someone else can do it.
Also missing from my libraries are 44.1 khz sample rates as they are a 192 khz and 96 khz pacakage. 44.1 khz is coming...............as a paid upgrade as it is labour intensive - not much. Maybe £ 3 a pack.

I'm a bit curious about all the tape libraries on offer here. How does one choose which one would be the most beneficial to buy and for what purpose?

Just about to hit the road again for a few days again guys but got a little something for you. . Have fun - by the way - the BeGe1 PRE has sample rates of 192 khz, 96 khz and 44.1 khz. All future libraries will have all sample rates in a package and I will begin to slowly add updates to the other libraries to cater for 44.1 and 96 khz for the NV series. Hope that makes some people happy.
