Magnetic Tape Bundle
this just adds the final touch to your mixes,...I really love it
Best tape emulation plugin you can get
This is a must for all who mix in the box and don't have access to expensive outboard analog gear.When added to guitars it just adds something that eq would not be able to do,presets are great and worth experimenting with for different flavours.A must for all who mix in your DAW.
A very simple plugin to use yet makes a mix come alive.Adds some magic mojo that opens up a mix that eq or compression can not do,another winner
I love the Studer A800 since it is so easy to use, has great sound, and can be used on multiple tracks. I put the Studer plugin in on individual tracks (sometimes mix bus) and use the Ampex plugin for mastering. It's a great combination for professional analog sounding songs.
The Ampex ATR-102 plugin is great for mastering. I really like the analog sound of the tape and the ease of use. I have been using the Ampex plugin on all my mixes since I got it.

True warmth and tone of Tape in a plugin
I'm very (no, extremely) skeptical when it comes to spending substantial $$$ on plugins and this one was no exception. So I really did hard and long research examining the good, bad and potential ugly reviews that can accommodate the pre-investigative work.
But surprisingly, I found far more excellent ratings than anything else. I also acquired as much information as I could in terms of documents and videos on the usage and listening to the results of applying the plugin on a track.
So after much research and digging, I was compelled to dish the bucks for this plugin and I don't regret 1 dime I spent on the investment. It really adds a very noticeable and familiar warmth that I remember well from the analog tape decks. The harmonics really add character that from my experience that pure digital recordings lack.
The gang feature is very useful along with other useful features that allow you to accomplish things that otherwise wouldn't be attainable from using the physical deck.
If you want to make a sound investment as opposed to a quick inexpensive buy, go for it. You won't regret it.
By far the best tape emulator
I have a huge range of tape emulation plugins, but this one is definitely at the number one position. Instant success when I use it to warm up an entire mix. So great to be able to run such an intricate plugin on a DSP. And I have yet to explore the gazillion possibilities of this baby.
Colorfull sounding emulation
One of the best tape emulations on the market!
Wide variety of vintage tones for buses, channels or mastering.
Take the time to experiment ... and use more than one ....!
I wasn't going to write a review, but now that I've owned this plugin for a few months I thought I'd reach out to those that don't own it and say this ... If you decide to demo this plugin with a view to buying it you'll only have 14 days to demo it (pleading phone calls aside etc etc). I would suggest lining up a bunch of tracks and then doing the following:
Check your levels - Don't send the tracks too hot to the Ampex .. leave yourself some headroom and this may mean that the defaults are running too hot to for your tunes to begin with. Working out where in your compression chain to place the Ampex is a matter of taste and program material. The manual suggests at the very end of the chain - I disagree.
Read the manual - understand that there are shades of colour all over the place on the GUI of this plugin .. from input gain to transformer, from EQ types to Bias settings .. don't write off what things like crosstalk etc can actually do .. the results are subtle BUT cumulative.
Spend a few days going back and forth between mixes - the different vibes that the Ampex can impart to your tunes is subtle BUT massive. It takes time to work out where the Ampex can take your tunes and those enhancements further.
Don't get too wound up by the Bias controls GUI when using a mouse etc etc .. THEY ARE DREADFUL ... BUT ... with a little practice zoning in on the control you'll be glad your not using a screw driver whilst crouched on the floor behind the machine in a different room from the Monitors ... you could almost forgive UAD for inflicting just a little of that pain.
It's a STUNNING piece of software and a massive achievement.
Nice edge to bass and punchy saturation. Perfect on the mix bus!
Creates magic on the drum bus
I really like to hit this lovely tape machine emulation with drums! In my opinion it adds an extra and sweet dimension to the kit. Good job UAD !
Best tape for your buck!
Can't get any better...
Have been using these tapes for almost 3 weeks now, and I set it up along my sub mixes and in "sync" mode, which allows me to control the overall saturation. I'm surprised by how it performs and really really excited everytime I saturate my mixes. Works incredibly well on parallel compression busess as well!
How did I do before buying this plugin? And why I bought only this only now. Coloring and warming the track in such a nice way and smooth way. Definitely my go to plugin for my mastering process. Congrats UA
MAGNETIC TAPE BUNDLE
they really work nice together , thanks UAD. I LOVE IT
Using it on the whole mix or when i'm in mastering session it makes every sound to fit in place with specific contour - just what i needed! Especially extending the lowend!
I cant live without my ATR102!!
This thing is AWESOME!!! Love driving it hot and dialing the Bias and eq in on it for drums. Sounds equally awesome for some 2bus sizzle. Literally use it on almost every session. Cant live without it at this point!
Effects, mask, time travel, master, glue, buff, crush, destroy. Love it all
yea it's amazing...
well, i do have the waves abbey road one.. and a few others.. but.. it's just better. A lot better lol.
