No matter what plug-ins you use it's nearly impossible to get rid of the ITB sound. The signal needs to pass through some nice analogue, particularly for compression. One of the main benifits is the front to back depth and stereo image, plus the way analogue gear 'grooves' when you have the attack and release times correct.

I totally agree, its virtually impossible to get rid of that ITB sound. No matter what..Outboard analogue is a must, which is why summing has become so rampant amongst ITB engineers. For me, ITB is still a overall no go.. Much prefer electrical voltage, anyday..

Nice little nugget in there Bob.
