Yeah, I've had a chance to play with the whole thing, it's a nice plugin, for sure. Those filters will get some use.
As far as the console sound goes, it seems not bad at all. I suppose I have a new flavor of console in the house. But with MBC, MWC, VBC, TNT, Globe, CLC, BBC, Bogen in the house...it's got a fair amount of competition!
Plus the advantage of its low CPU consumption is sort of lost on me: I'll have to compulsively render anyway to facilitate the tape emulation. So for my workflow (which is heavily Nebulized anyway) a CPU-lighter console program doesn't change much for me; that's not a diss on Sonimus (it is actually fairly light), I'm sure it's a big deal to others.
The only thing I would 'complain' about (it's not really a complaint, more a hope I had that did't pan out) is that it's CPU-lighter but it still pops and crackles in meter-only mode at less than 256 sample buffer. That's not a deal breaker (many Nebula programs do the same) and my computer's age is for sure part of the equation here (just on the cusp of a new one as I get ready for Neb Server) but I was hoping the filters/meters would work in low latency situations. Thankfully the Naiant Studios VU meters seem to do pretty well when I need one during tracking/recording (and have been updated to a version 3 which seems less buggy than the old version; if only they were resizable!).
Totally off topic but if someone were to make a comprehensive VU meter plugin (with several different meter designs/types and a variety of calibration options) that was resizable and wasn't too expensive I think they'd have a monster hit on their hands. Many of us still pine for our old needle meters. I thought the guys from PPMulatorPlus would add it to theirs (it seems so obvious to me) but they sold out to Zplane (not sure they're doing any development).
