Magnetic Tape Bundle
Magnetic Tape Bundle
Having grown up as an engineer in the age of tape machines, the Studer 800 is a magnificent tool for just about any use. Many times I forgo an EQ in favor of the Studer flavor. And the saturation is very believably analog. Definitely a must have for those who use UA hardware.
My Old Friend :)
The great 2" analog tape sound of yore. Even *feels* like a Studer A800. Get it and use on every track. You won't *not* want to use it.
Brilliant for master bus sonic character
It works both as subtle sonic character to add to your masterbus but also as major coloration when it comes to drive and compression

Beautiful and very effective in audio processing! I prefer it to many other plugins on the market!

apply this, and it will be a magic
Give your mix life!
Second to none
ATR-102 is absolutely the mastering solution I call it the celebrities cheat
Everything sounds better when turned on
This plugin added to my rough mix beautiful color and saturation. Everything sounds better.
Swiss army knife
I use the ATR-102 all over the place. It can improve any mix. It tames harsh sounds, bring clarity and glues the mix. A must have!
I have used a Studor A800 dozens of times in my earlier years. Except for the endless time rewinding and fast forwarding this takes me back to those days.
The Magic Sauce
This thing is great for adding anything from subtle harmonics to absolutely destroying a signal. A must have of the master buss or stem busses
I haven't touched an ATR in 20 years so I can't really compare the two, but I can say that this sounds great when used as a drum and/or master bus. Very clean results. I also have the Studer 800 plug-in and that one breaks up the signal more than this, and not necessarily in the good way. This unit seems much less "digital", even when pushed hard. Both are cool tools, don't get me wrong, but this one (so far) seems to work better with stronger/louder music.
Studer is THE name in analog tape machines and this plugin lives up to the name. Put it across all your tracks and something magical happens. The presets are really fun to scroll through. You never know what you might discover. Buy this thing!
Nthing else to say
An excellent tape recorder, I recommend everyone to put it first in the insert of the mixing console of your program! I recommend buying it to anyone mixing music!
Adds so much to my tracks. Wish I had it for previous projects.

After trying this plugin it became direct the first on my wishlist. It gives weight on your sound and when you look at an exported wave file it looks more transparant. It’s almost magic
Love it! Love it! Love it!
This is a must-have plugin on your stereo bus! It's difficult to describe its huge impact in a few words on your mix, but you can be 100% sure that it worth every dollar you pay for it.
It's popular for a reason...
This would be my desert island plugin. No other plugin gives me the "finished", "polished" sound as good as this one. I highly recommend combing through the presets. Many, many times there is one that will work very well for your mix, but adjust just one setting thereafter, and you could through it off. Read the manual, learn what does what, or like a kid learns just push buttons until you find what works for you. This isn't just for technical expertise, have fun with this thing!
Ive been using slate VTM for years.. after using the studer.. its a mind blowing result!!!!
