Wow. So legit

Simply stunning. Ive used this on every mix since purchasing. Incredible sounds from gentle to extreme. Capable of instantly adding clarity and character 2 the low end and that magic sparkle on the top end.

I Love It !

The Studer A800 brings me back to that sound I've been missing.
I could use this baby on almost every track. If I close my eyes, It feels like I have the Studer A800 Machine in my studio. :©)

Thank U Universal Audio

OMG! I just crapped!

OK...still just demoing but this unit has answered about 90% of the questions I have ever had regarding mastering levels and tonality in recorded audio. Between the "Reproduce" and "Record" level dials on this tape machine you will notice that the Reproduce seems to manage the midrange and the "Record" dial seems to manage the low end. As if that wasn't important enough...along with some deep and subtle compression using the 1176 and Fairchild way below the top end and at different stages in your master you can literally use the tape saturation on this machine to drive your audio up to a full 16 bit. Literally retaining all of your dynamics and making it loud as @@@@! This is the unit folks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Am trying the demo as I speak on a current mix I am working up. Changes ~ when I place it on the Master bus? Everything becomes dynamically even. Very slight change in ambient quality except for a boost in the lower midrange which when A/B'd I don't want to live without. If I was asked to describe this hardware insert. (I hate calling plugins "plugins") because it doesn't justify the effort (required for their creation). I would describe it as "Auto level with Meringue". As we know...every processor is one step toward what we want and this is that step. Happy!

Studer A800 2 Inch Plugin

I purchased this plugin when it came out over a year ago. Right after I purchased it they came out with the Ampex plugin. That was the one I really wanted to run on the 2 track bus. After using this plugin (Studer 800) on the 2 track bus and also after I started the Ampeq 14 day demo I was a little bummed out I did not purchase the Ampeq. A few weeks later I stuck the Studer on every channel of my mix (only the drums & bass tracks) and I was amazed at what it did. About 7 years ago I sold my Otari MTR-90 so I am very familiar with tape machines and how they sound.

If you run this plugin on your drum & bass tracks it just glues them together. There is no need to spend thousands of dollars up keeping your 2" anymore with this plugin.

Unique tape sound

I got this after hearing all the great reviews by the elite of engineers. The idea is to put it on all tracks above all other plugins. It has different tape heads you can use. I like the sound on certain types of music, not everything. Still, a very good tape emulation.

Sounds good

Good tape emulation with options. Wouldnt use it on everything. But when used, it's good.

a must for the bus

i use it on the bus for synths and vocal and it gives the sound this nice saturation and is glouing the things together. It´s magic.

The first sample

Hi! Slowly prazbirayus with this device. One thing I can tell he's doing his job. Although not all the tracks it can be applied, it is necessary to accurately represent what you want to get to the finish. In general, good!

Ampex Utilities

thanks for your request,
can i use this plug in mono channel? or is only for stereo channels?
is only for mastering?

Ampex ATR-102 is my new best friend

I use this tool with every project ....I enjoy working again especially with vocals
It's like using magic dust on your mix..worth every penny!

No track without, EVER

I use this plugin everywhere, loving the 15 ips speed, it smooths everything and gives body to any material. On the Apollo channel strip and in my daw, it is always there to imprint that nice smooth tape sound to all my material. Cannot recommend this enough

hum.. not shure for master after all

very impressive plugin, you run the demo, you are impressed by the "3D" effect", you buy it but.. after months of use, finally I take it off my master busses and realize that most of my mixes sound better without.. confusing. I think it can be great on vox, drum busses, accoustic guitars, it can be great for many reasons: warming up the sound, get a sensation of 3 dimensions, high end details, delays effects, wow and flutter.. but on a master, I feel I loose something in the feeling of stereo.. Does someone feel like I do?

Studer® A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder Plug-In

Strepitoso, sicuramente uno sei migliori emulatori di registratori in commercio. Non adatto da usare sul master si presta per tutte le singole tracce. A800 farà diventare la vostra sessione analogica al 100% ottimo acquisto!

Improves my recordings

I definitly love the sound of the Ampex ATR 102. Indeed, I find recordings sound better when they are processed with this plugin. I thought about buying a real tape machine some time ago. Now I'm happy not to have all the hassles with real tape machines - but he sound.

I've only used this on one mix so far. It made a huge improvement on my drum tracks. Didn't have to compress as much later on.

Been using for months now. It's my go to plug-in for drums and bass. I find after I fiddle with the input I often don't need any EQ. Gives my mostly in the box tracks the warmth I seek.
