Turnkey presets!

I'm a musician but I'm not a recording specialist! And this little gem allows me to reach, find settings that can quickly meet the requirements for each instrument style etc. the 104 seems active to me with responsiveness and clarity with more sophisticated details...

The UAD Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder is pure magic! It adds an incredible warmth and depth to my mixes that I just can't get with anything else. Super easy to use and instantly gives that vintage, pro sound. Whether I'm working on a final mix or just adding some tape flavor, this plugin never disappoints.

Warm and authenticity


The Universal Audio Studer A800 Tape Emulator Plugin is a game-changer for anyone seeking to infuse their digital recordings with the warmth and character of analog tape. From the moment you apply it to your mix, the A800 imparts a rich, warm tone that adds depth and dimension, making the low-end tighter, the mid-range more pronounced, and the high-end smooth and silky. Its multiple tape formulas and calibration settings provide exceptional flexibility, allowing precise control over tape saturation and compression to suit any mix.

Moreover, the plugin excels in providing a cohesive glue to the mix, enhancing unity and harmony across all elements. Its intuitive user interface, coupled with minimal CPU usage, ensures a seamless experience even in larger projects. The Studer A800 is not just a tool but an essential asset for achieving professional-sounding mixes, capturing the essence of the legendary tape machine with remarkable authenticity. Universal Audio has truly set the bar high with this outstanding emulation.

Controls Height and one of the Depth parameters

Magnetic Tape Formula Type, IPS, Secondary controls such as Repro EQ, Sync EQ, HF Driver acts like an EQ that controls Frequencies (Height Parameter to localise the sound at Top, Centre or Bottom).

The Bias from Secondary controls acts like a Low Level Compressor that controls Distance (Depth parameter to localise the sound at Near, Mid or Far field) and provide strength to weakest audio signals to make it sound located at Near field.

The Calibration acts like a Harmonic Distortion Unit that add certain amount of Harmonics according to users' preference.

great sound on the twobus

Sounds amazing, and tons of options. Different tape formulations, speeds, crosstalk, transformer saturation, tape width, bias etc.
