I took the time and listened to all wave files (after level matching them slightly, but it was pretty well done with a few exceptions).
First of all I found the hihat and snare to have an annoying phase problem, but that is more of a recording issue.
Overall it's great to have all consoles "in the box" and you really get a bit of the coloration from the real consoles. I say a bit as to me a real console still sounds better than VCC and AlexB, but that is not the intention of this thread.
So here is my conclusion:
The VCC plugin seems to have it's own character that shines through on any emulation it's doing. It always sounds compressed even a little squashed, narrow to me. On the other hand this very "compact" sound might be just what you need. I could see a use on parallel buss e.g..
But it sounds like a plugin after all. Like all plugins it has this "digital zszszszszszs" going on in the highs and doesn't sound open or alive like analogue.
I didn't like all of AlexB consoles, like the CLC (SSL 4k) or the Trident.
But I liked the MBC (Api) especially on kick and snare and most of all the Neves (MWC and VBC - vintage more than clean).
They do sound open, alive and analogue.
I was still irritated by that phasey hh and snare but I could hear the depth of the recording while listening to the VBC vintage and didn't here any compression or "digital zsszszszsz" if you mean what I know
So it looks like I'll continue using the stuff from Alex even if that means that I'll have to bounce like hell ... but my new pc is arriving next week and should be able to run at least 25 instances at 96kHz ... I hope
