    Hi Andrew, As a true believer and owner of many Slate plugins, and one who uses them all the time, I am not a fan of this particular product.
    Do I think Steve put a lot of energy into the VMS? Absolutely! But critical listening to the clips that I have heard, and knowing what the classic mics sound like from numerous recordings .. I think it's 'flat' or 'digital' sounding, compared to the real thing. Sort of like the early guitar amp sims were.. Given time, it might improve...IDK.?
    Just my opinion of course...
    *edit* The plugins themselves are not quite as good as their hardware 'equivalents' ...Even more so with mics, as they are the gateway to what's going to happen in the recording, so to me that effect will be amplified..
