Another option is bx_console and that has the same full price. The reason I wanted one of these instead of the other console emulations is that with others you will end up with the exact same "analog emulation" on every channel. This isn't how a real console works. So NLS and bx_console are the only two that I know of that allow for the channel differences you will find on the real deal. I like the way bx_console achieves this, but NLS was cheaper at the time and also gave me three different consoles versus one with bx.
Yea, it is on sale often.
I also use some other emulations but none of them cheaper.
I think the NLS has its own sound which i personally like better then the competition when i want that analog punch.
