Ampex® ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder
Ampex® ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder
Hear the difference!
I am a great fan of UA plugins. I own about 50% of all their available plugins and can't wait to purchase more. As with all other UA plugins, the Ampex ATR102 Mastering Tape Recorder is a great tool and brings the advantage of being able to use several instances at the same time - as opposed to a hardware unit with mostly just one possible instance. The Ampex is very versatile and the limit in its application is just your imagination. Amazing how, nowadays, you can setup your studio with gear that would have been unaffordable in the days of my youth! I just love producing professionally sounding music with these tools. THANKS!!!
Great results !
It adds the nice analog touch to your masters. Its impact on bass is great. Mix sound powerfull and it gives dimensions. It's an addictif tool !
Back to tape, back to music!!!!

fantastic creation this ampex atr-102 combined with the synthology ivory cantabile steinway american concert D
this tape machine performs miracles .
thanks again uad
I state it clear.
I spend too much time trimming on linear eq and multiband compression on the master bus to get that final touch.
ATR 102 makes it too easy. Just plug it in. Magic wand.
perfect unlimited tape mastering plugin has the right character to balance instruments/sounds
UAD excellence as always
Ampex is Nice
I was a bit skeptical on the ATR-102 plugin but I had read so many good reviews on it. Once I tried it, I understood what it can do to your mix which is great. I put it on a jazz mix where it has to be very subtle and it did its magic very well. I used to mix all the time to Ampex machines and this is a very welcome tool to have once again on my mix bus.
Fantastic tape emulator!!! It was so difficult to choose between Ampex and the Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder, another great tape emulator. But I I demoed it for 15 days and chose Ampex, it works with my recordings. Thank you!
Excellent plugins !!!
Apporte de la chaleur au mix, impossible de s'en passer, inséré dans le bus master de mon Daw il donne une finalité au mix et un agréable rendu sonore.
Les fonctions sont un peu complexes, comparé à l'oxide l'ATR102 dispose de plus de fonctions bien pensés permettant de faire tous ce que l'on veut.
Les différents mode analogiques sont remarquables.
Un excellent plugin de chez UAD.
SOUND IS SO FULL
Put this at the end of your mix and watch the magic happen.
Whaterver this plugin does, it excells. Tracks processed through it sound cohesive, classy, and polished. Although DSP load can be high on the Apollo Twin, boucing and deactivating plugins is a small price to pay for this quality. I own U-He Satn and I thought I was done buying tape emulations. Boy, was I wrong!
As others have said, this thing can make anything sound more polished.
Best Glue and Mastering Plugin Ever.
I was shocked by the result of this Plugin what can do with a master track or your mix.
The whole mix just come to alive like never before.
Incredible what u can achieve with the Ampex Atr 102.
I already own a lot of other plugins as such as Apollo Twin Duo. The best ever.
Nice One Guys keep up the good work.
Music is back
This plugin is far the best I owe.
Punch, Clarity, Depth, Glue
I got the demo of this because it kept popping out to me as I glanced through the plugins in the online store. This is hands-down the best tape plugin I've ever used.
The sound is wonderful. It glues a mix together, adds depth in the low end, smooths out harshness in the high-mids, tightens up the mix by adding that lovely/natural tape compression, and I haven't even mentioned all of the options you can tweak if you want to get specific.
The tape choices are brilliant for honing in on the specific sound you're looking for. You can get pro, Pop mastered, clear mixes through this or that warbley, thick, crumbly old demo sound. This does some extreme things if you push it hard enough but it's also easy to just bring in a subtle vibe-y Wow.
Amped ATR 102
Plug in carries quite a bit of noise with it, I will see how it performs.
It's a Medium
The Ampex Tape Plug-In has become a medium for me in my recordings, adding both glue and varnish to my pieces, so glad I committed to it.
Thank you Universal Audio!
Studer tape thingy
This beast glues, compressors, delays and detunes, I'm in love.
Just nice, all i can say.. 5 stars.
