I know that on paper it reads 50-60ms
Well, which batch of photopanels are we talking about here?
Are we talking about the bit where they tried to save money, or the really early ones, or some really late ones? Some reissues? Some made by someone who's a real specialist (Kenetek), or what?
The reason there's a slider at all is because there's just absolutely no consistency in the wild.
Call up Kenetek, and he'll offer you five different "speeds".
So, the default setting I put on the plugin is something that sounds nice to me, and is an opto in my office. But the other optos in the office are all over the shop. So I stuck the thing somewhere.
If it feels right to you to default the release to 5ms, then there's absolutely nothing wrong with doing that! It's not a subject where there is right and wrong - only matching a unit that you like, or not.
anyway, on the 2A model, it always felt too laggy if set to the suggested default release line of 50ms ... and comparing with Softube's NI VC2A it confirms that.... if I set the 2A to 5ms instead of 50ms release, it gives more similar results to the NI VC2A shape
Well, now we have learned that Softube chose to model a FAST T4B. That's all we learned, but we did learn it
If you like that sound, you have it!
