This Plugin Is AWESOME on the drum bus......

So far I've been trying this on everything and have found it to be extremely beneficial for drum busses or individual tracks. It doesn't sound bad by any stretch of the imagination on anything else I've tried it on; I just really, really like what it does for the drums. Nice, Fat and Clear.

Studer® A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder : very nice !

I like to use it in a very subtle way , and 'yes' , this is possible. You need to read the manual to get an idea how to use this PlugIn properly. 5Stars

Chaosthetic Cosmos premastering

Sound engineer for CrossAngel:The album "Chaosthetic Cosmos" has been fully treated with UAD2 in 2014.
Neve 88RS channel strip for the mix then Studer A800, SPL TwinTube and Precision Equalizer for the premastering.
Effective tools that helped keep the analog sound throughout the project.Thanks!

Great tape sound

Just put it in the insert and you've got the great smooth sonic sound of tape.

Subtle but nothing like it.......

So many have tried to emulate the distortion and compression effects of tape eg. the Emperical Labs Fatso but I must say this just nails it! I love slamming this with drums and just hearing the effect it has on the drum sound, want that Tame Impala retro drum sound? You need this plugin! I have compared it to Slate and UHE and this wins, it just sounds so natural and responsive- fantastic job UA, a triumph in digital engineering- it is a great time to be a musician.

Spoiled for choice

UAD has given me so many flavors of tape and I find each to be really useful and great for explorative sound sculpting. This deck has found a happy partner in my Tom Oberheim Two Voice Pro. From chugging basses to twinkling tenor range sequences, this deck really allows for a high degree of sheen and shine. I can get each voice to settle down nicely in the mix with this. Great plugin.

Is this worth getting into the UA2 ecosystem alone?

Is this worth getting into the UA2 ecosystem alone? Well it costs considerably less than the real thing, you can have many of them working at the same time, trying to fit multiple Studers in a studio, let alone a home setup is going to be painful in more ways than one.

And then there's the impression that I get that it just sounds RIGHT. Unlike a lot of tape emulations! I can't quite explain it, it's sometimes quite subtle differences, but long listening you just don't feel it's artificial, or an EFFECT. It's tape without the tape.

I like IT!

I don't know why people say don't use it on the 2 buss. Some songs it works great on the 2 buss and some it does not. Main thing to tweak is the low end going through it. I have starting just putting it on a buss and dialing in how much I want of it on each individual instrument.

Warm that Mix up!

This plugin is a time machine that'll take you back to a far away place where music sounded warm and beautiful to the ear.

It's a must have for any digital environment.

Very happy with the Studer A800 Plug-in!

I've been tracking drums the past couple weeks and had the opportunity to get to know this plug-in a little better. I've been running an Apollo insert on every drum mic on the way into the DAW and this plug-in delivers the analog sound and feel that I've been hoping for. Drums and cymbals already sound full and warm before additional processing, which is the perfect starting point for me. Very useful along with my other UA plug-ins!

On evvery track now...

I have been throwing this guy on all of my multitracks since I got it. I worked with tape for MANY years and I was glad to see it go for all the trouble it was to maintain. I work strictly digital now but sometimes long for that voodoo tape adds to the sound. This plugin has done an excellent job of adding a little meat to the track, without sounding cheap and artificial like so many tape sims do. I have been very happy with it.

A must have in your recording chain

I got it mainly for tracking with my Apollo, the preamp I choose to track It depends of the source but the chains always includes the Studer.

In combination with a 1176 or a LA-2A It gets your dynamics controlled at recording and i do less processing later at the mix.

Made some console presets for bass and guitar with several plug-ins combinations so when a want a precise sound it's really fast to get it and adjust for the track.

Get a good sound at recording spares you time at mixing and this plug-ins in my workflow helps me a lot with it.

I'm doing some tests with it on group busses but not yet comfortable to change my PT template, but the result on bussed drums and guitars it's quite good.

I usually take out the noise.

WOW...just WOW

I am not going to lie....With all the hype around the ATR 102 (which I bought about the same time). I assumed the A800 would be slightly less impressive. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! The A800 is amazing!!! What it does to the low end in phenomenal!!! The luxury of not dealing with an actual tape machine makes the world (and my projects) a better place :)

I do however wish that Oxide was includes in the bundle :(
