Real as the real thing

I have worked with many tape emulations from different manufacturers and was happy...
Now, I have this emulation of the A800, it's like I've been playing with toys and this really does the job. It's not that you're never 100% sure of the effect the tool produces on the sound, with a trade-off between texture/warmth and sharpness, no. You can clearly hear how the texture improves, without smearing or making things more dirty, it's magical.
This simply makes rivals obsolete.

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%!

Le fil

Superbe émulation qui fait retrouver l'impression du fil qui relie chaque note, chaque son. Pour moi de la haute couture.

Studer A800 Tape Recorder

I would love to review this item, but as with other UAD plugins I have, "the GUI fails to load"

From Subtle Saturation to Gritty Lofi, This Plugin Does It All

I work with a real Studer A800 MKIII and this plugin has all the benefits with none of the hassle. It has a smooth, pleasing user interface and gives as much control as needed for crafting wonderful sounds. This will live on my drum bus forever.

Best tape emulation plugin out there

I've tried just about every tape plugin out there and this one to me seems the closest to the real thing. Close enough that I don't desire to have the real thing anymore.

Works on everything

I’ve been trying many emulations, that one is my go to, because it’s a plug & play type of tool, and i appreciate not spending ages on tweaking knobs & stuff.
If only the Gang sync function had made it to the native version, i’d have put 5 stats hands down.

Thanks UAD

Man UAD has made my life better.I'm a guy who's retired and doesn't have a lot of money and makes music basically for myself and NEVER thought I would be able to afford UAD plugins but I can tell UAD wants to help the little guy who doesn't make money from recordings but does it for fun...Thank you so much UAD!!!

I have used RC-20, Sketch Cassette, and J37 for the last couple of years. While each of them have a specific sound that I love and still refer back to, Universal Audio has created the closest emulation to a real tape machine that only adds presence without losing any character.

Icing on the Cake

I’m infatuated with this guy as of late! I’ve been strapping it to the end of my mix bus with some gentle tweaks and I haven’t regretted it yet. It’s a fantastic tape emulation that (in my opinion) goes toe-to-toe with Softube’s tape offering. Don’t hesitate to pick it up.

Great presence and depth.

I love the flexible sound shaping you can get with it.

It's great for both master and individual channels.

Yeah I tried it. It does make a warm difference. I’m not a pro but I did like the effect. It is a small change, but when mastering, everything little subtle change can result in a satisfying outcome.
