Very interesting! I tried the same thing once, building an analog vu with layerfx, but lost interest. I'm more into the led VUs.
Since VUs are the only reason why I once started skinning, I'm always eager to see how others build them. I like your approach. However, they miss the realistic feel and I think I know why: the direction changes are evenly fast to the left and to the right. To have a realistic feel to it, you need the needle to react almost instantaneously to the beats, but then have a slow decay. Your VU can be flipped horizontally and still look the same, or so it seems. Fix that, and you built the greatest analog vu ever.
I hope you can do something with my constructive criticism.
