I've been using Lunar Lander for a few days. Using Logic Pro X exclusively. Activating the demo wasn't as straightforward as I thought it would be, however. When I first instantiated it in LPX, there were no popups requesting activation. I didn't see the activation option show up until I launched it in HostingAU. After that, it worked fine in Logic.

I'm a big fan of character plugins with a simple, yet effective parameter set, and Lunar Lander doesn't disappoint in that regard. It has 3 clearly-defined sections: Analog Delay, Plate Reverb, and Input/Output gain (with selectable saturation circuitry).

The unit as a whole has a very rich sound, which can be dialed back with wet/dry controls in both the Delay and Reverb sections.

Pros:
-The aforementioned rich sound. It's hard to get a bad sound out of it regardless of what is fed into it.
-Intuitive controls and nothing wasted in the GUI.
-Ducking control, which is crucial for deep-sounding effects like this, as clears a lot of space to allow the original signal to breathe.

Cons:
-Would've appreciated some resonant filters on the low and high end similar to PSP Echo. It allows for quick and extreme dub feedback on both ends of the sonic spectrum
-No ability to synch the delay with the host tempo. It offers a tap, but it can drift out of sync quite quickly. It lends itself to a more old-school workflow, which is probably what they were aiming for. :)
-Relatively high price.

I want to expand a bit on the price concern. Though this is an excellent-sounding effect, I've been using plugins for 20 years now and have amassed an embarrassing number of others that can compete quite nicely with Lunar Lander. Perhaps if I were starting out and didn't have any other plugins I might pay $149 for Lunar Lander. But I'm in the former camp, and as result I can't justify that high price.

We have just released Lunar Lander version 1.6.

In this version, you will see:

1- Efficient coding that lends to zero latency. Yes, you read it correctly; ZERO. So we did not need to relay Delay Compensation to the DAW.

2- Improved GUI.

3- Added a new feature- DUCKING. A request sent by many of our users.

4- Addressed issues related to Apple Logic X inserting Lunar Lander as Mono or Dual Mono.

5- Clock Rate display shows one decimal place for better visual accuracy.
