What about making a new plugin called eg. Analog glow, which is simply
the "lowpass->valve sim->lowpass" combination. That could save you some
time and be more universally applicable.
I would like to do this myself and will probably look into it if you
don't have the time or interest. Although after my last attempt I think
it may take a while for me to get things working properly.
