Good mastering plugin

It has a special taste as you use it on your mastering chain. It has a color, it can be subtle or you can push it. I need to have more time with this plugin, but it will be essential for my work, that’s 100%!

I have never met the original, but both Studer and Otari in the analog era. I myself own a wonderful Revox G36 with its typical saturated warm compression. This is in the same class. Awesome.

2-Bus awesomeness or lo-fi vibe on tracks

This plugin takes up some Sharc but it sounds great. The busted tape setting is so mangled and awesome. Jumping through the mastering settings as a jumping point for mixbus processing is fun. I will say though that on some settings, probably due to crossover, the mixes can sound a bit more condensed and less open. Overall though I love it. I'd say it works about half the time on the mixbus with little effort, and it's always cool as a stem or track mangler. That you can utilize variable EQ options really sets it above other tape plugins for me.

I have the Studer too, and more often reach for this. Tho tbf I reach for oxide the most bc it's least dsp heavy and simplest/fastest to use for tracks where I just want a tape saturation effect and not any mangling.

Bus or MasterTape?

Hi, in MasterTape and Bus are different presets.
Why? Is it better to make the plugin in Bus or in MasterTape? Thx from Warsaw

Superb Tape Mastering & Tracking

Superb tape simulation and wonderful colouration for masters and tracking. This (and the Studer A800) both saturate in a completely natural analog way. The best tape plugins I've used.
