we tried out an SSL 2 on a Win10 i5 machine yesterday. We could track volcals incl. reverb via real-time monitoring a send fx track in reaper and the monitoring button of the SLL. Buffer size was 512 samples. Reverb had a slight latency but was ok for tracking.

Using a Neumann KMS 105, the "2" sounds clean and punchy at lower gain settings (below the 12 o'clock position) and gets more and more saturated/aggressive/gnarly when gain is above the 12 o'clock position. The 4k knob imparts a bit of an exciter fx and may be appropriate in various cases (not with this mic and this voice, though). We were very pleased with the results we got.
