Another UPLIFT, MOJO enhancer

I already owned one of the other tape plug-ins, but this one has more options, especially in changing the tape types. It takes up the same amount of processing power, so no advantage there, but still. You don't need all the tape plug-ins, you can go with this one if you want a few more options, but the other, slightly cheaper one, could also work.

Whether I put it on some instruments/tracks, or on the master track, it does what it's supposed to, which is give me more options to fuse the sound of the whole thing and uplift the tune and its mojo just that bit more...

Mix Magic Maker

The absolute best sounding mastering tape plug! Also a great slap delay maker….now if only UA made it Native all my problems would be solved?!

Smooth and warm

Adds silk, crunch, smoothness all at once. Takes the brittle glassy sound out that digital bring I to a recording. Glad I got on sale. Great tool for acoustic guitar and make a big difference on fiddle and mandolin tracks. :)

One of the greatest UAD plugins ever.

This one is my magic trick. It makes things sound warmer, brighter, older, and more like a record. It's on every single project, every bus, every stereo mix. Just get it, it is a must have.

2-Bus awesomeness or lo-fi vibe on tracks

This plugin takes up some Sharc but it sounds great. The busted tape setting is so mangled and awesome. Jumping through the mastering settings as a jumping point for mixbus processing is fun. I will say though that on some settings, probably due to crossover, the mixes can sound a bit more condensed and less open. Overall though I love it. I'd say it works about half the time on the mixbus with little effort, and it's always cool as a stem or track mangler. That you can utilize variable EQ options really sets it above other tape plugins for me.

I have the Studer too, and more often reach for this. Tho tbf I reach for oxide the most bc it's least dsp heavy and simplest/fastest to use for tracks where I just want a tape saturation effect and not any mangling.

Helps add thickness to synths

Been using this a lot on software synths that need a bit more warmth and love. Highly recommended across various elements in a mix.

Analog Sound

Being completely honest, I have never worked on real analog tape, but this plugin brings some analog punch (to my ears) especially on the low end. Try it on individual tracks!!
