That's more or less what I do as well (but I leave more than 1/2 of VSS2's ERs). I use the presets for VSL for my VSL instruments (doh) but also for my Chris Hein Instruments. I'm quite pleased with the result.Ha! Not much more than a rookie myself in the engineering department, but read about it on VI Control and played around with it. To my ears I get the best sound with Spaces and the ERs of VSS2 turned down about 1/2 way. Personal preference.
