Special Studer Sauce!!!

I owned the Ampex ATR-102 for a while - it was one of the first UA plugins that I purchased - I love using it on a master bus - but I wanted something for individual channels and trialed the Studer - really has this cumulative effect - the more you use it the more it seems to add depth and subtle warmth to a mix - go get it - you'll be using it forever more!!

analog tape fatness!!

This plugin is amazing. I produce hip hop music and this plugin gives my music the grit & fatness of 90's hip hop. Its not to get that sound while mixing in the box but this plugin solves the problem. Its killer on samples, drums, and vocals. It makes drums sound more punchy and adds character on vocals. On the stereo bus it rounds off the top end in a very pleasant way that brings fullness to master. It definitely controls the brittleness thats associated with digital audio. It really smooths everything out. If you guys are familiar with Dr Dre and the Chronic record, this plugin will definitely help to achieve the sonic flavor of that album. This plugin deserves 10 stars!!! Great job UAD

Must Own This Plugin!

I shied away from this plugin in the beginning because of the price tag. Once you use it, you'll not want to mix without it. It's that good. I use it on my busses. All of their tape plugins are fantastic. I use the Ampex on the master buss, and I'll use Oxide on individual tracks.

The sound of analog tape

Really helps to recreate the sound of analog tape when slapped on many different channels of a mix. It gives a nice tape saturation just by engaging the plugin and allows for creative effects when cranked to more extreme settings. Subtle but smooths out the top end and adds weight to bottom end.

Great love the real tape sound that it gives to a track, the ability to work in the digital world with a warm analog sound...the best

I demoed the studer twice just to make sure this product was adding something to my mix, and not just a waste of money. I must say after playing with it for a few days its pretty cool. I think its a nice addition to my plugin family. Thanks UA

My go-to for tape saturation

I use this all over! I did a blind comparison of this, Waves J37 and Oxide a while back. This plugin won by far, but because of the asking price I ended up getting J37 instead. Now, with the custom bundle promotion the Studer sound was suddenly within my reach, so now I'm replacing all of my J37 instances with this - and it sounds amazing!

Unbeatable for tracking

during a live tracking session if you want to add an instant character change on a new vocal or instrument track try the Studer - it can be as subtle or as ballsy as you want it to be, I prefer it to walk the line there so it's more of a "feel" thing - push it just to the point where you start to hear a little overload and then back it off. Also the EQ options are killer for HF and LF roll off! Backing these tape sounds up against the sound of cleaner digital signals gives a really cool effect in a track. Definitely 100% happy with my purchase.

"That awesome Tape Sound...": ALSO FOR ON YOUR MASTER TRACK!!!

I Love this one! It is a successful emulation of a famous Studer multitrack recorder and with the many options it has I can sculpt the my mix-tracks exactly to my taste. "Tape" does something other plugins can not achieve (so easily) and the Studer A800 is my new favorite, next to the Ampex ATR-102 of course ;-). I use other tape emulations from Waves and Slate as well, but lately I find myself going for the "UA twins" first :-). Don't forget to try it on your master-track as well; you'll be surprised with the MOJO it can add to your overall mix!

Fantastic tool for glue your mix and give a specific overall sound direction.

The Studer was one of my first purchases and downloads to try out as I wanted to see what all this hype was about. Well, this plugin goes on my kick & snare on every track I make after the Neve 88RS channel. This unit is so tight. Even right from default, it just mats my drums a certain way to flatten some extra digital freqs and gives it a more rounded old vibe. I love to use the EQ to re-raise the hights back in after turning it on, put to 7.5 or 15 depending on the track and VOILA!!! Magic. If you are reading this, also, go try Oxide and put it on your bass and synths !!!!! Even kick n snares. Its a different vibe but also a great one. More punchy and thick. Great contract to Studer so if you are a DJ, you have different sounds in your tracks which helps break up the similar mix types you do.

Simply my favorite

It´s my favorite UAD plug-in! there´s nothing out there like it! Amazing sound, warmth, detail, aggressiveness, punch, whatever you want, literally! I use it in every mix. A800 its exceptional!

Great saturation

I've played around with Studer and Ampex plug-in before decides which one to buy. Well, in the end I've bought both. Studer A800 is the best to add lots of saturated colours on instruments and the mix itself. And i loved that retro sound that only tape machines give to the music.

Still I would love to see retina versions of these and all UAD plugins.

The sound of HEAVEN

I tend to look for the analog style sound (as most of us probably do these days). The range of 'analog' tonalities that this thing can offer is quite breathtaking
