GS Excellent.

FM Pitch to -2. Slitghtly different dynamics than GS

Act III cut louder on FM than GS. I think that it is probably the more natural dynamic relationship to Act I.

AT needs a little treble boost but still excellent.

Immortal compressed dynamics but still nice tonal balance.

RVC identical to Immortal.

LRM slightly more muffled.

VIC weak low end.

LM similar to VIC but with some surface noise.
