It'll still take a while I'm affraid - though nothing wrong with promoting it already.
From the recent looks however, it's a versatile beast:
- link mode (with UAD and Roundtone, one of the few tape machines that offer that)
- two tape machines (2" 16-track and 1" 2-track)
- two tape models
- two IPS (30 and 15)
- the used to calibration (as with VCC)
- good visual representation
Be warned however (to those that make this a "purchase rule"): iLok 2!
Whether or not you're liking or even using it, doesn't matter. It's one among many products out there. And glad that there are. I mean - I have Magnetic 1 and 2 (love it for the ultra low tape mode for HiFi cassette effects), Roundtone, FEROX, FERRIC TDS, Nebula (Demo), I messed with the UAD creation, with the Waves MPX, with MellowMuse's SATV, SoundToys Decapitator and I have one 1/2" 2-track and one 1/2" 4-track R2R's myself.
Each of these tools offer an individual flavour. The trick is to use them right and not overuse them. Which of these products will be superior lies within the eye of the beholder.
