A must-have on the mix bus and for mastering

This plugin delivers something that EQ's and bus compressors simply can't. You won't be disappointed.

Extremly good, I use it everywhere on the masterbus

This plugin is a absolutly must have! It sounds very analog and makes every mixdown increadible authentic. I would recommend it as the first and most important plugin in your uad list, but try it, use it, test it!

Professional tape machine (more professional control can be added)

Great tape machine for all instruments and general mixing. I would also like to see a button for switching the VU meter "before" and "after" the tape. For more visual control and not only auditory control. That would be great :)

So depressed....

I have Windows 10 and Cubase. In Cubase this software complains it's not connected to hardware.
There is no email adress to ask help. Only articles to read...
Please, help me. I need this important Studer...!

Sounds like tape to me

Love all the presets and control you have over it, would really like to see a native version, it does eat some DSP

Studer A800 ‘MULTITRACK’

As a harmonic colouration device this is nice. The controls do things. It isn’t noisy. It can do subtle and extreme shifts. BUT, it’s supposed to be a 24 channel tape recorder. It’ll work in mono or stereo, but that’s it. Where are the other 22 channels? Without the nonlinearities of a fully modelled machine spread across 24 sources, and the depth which that creates, it’s just a two channel preamp with tape-style eq. UAD missed an opportunity to make something truly awesome here.

Classy

I spent a long time waiting for the Native versions of this plug in. I’m glad it has finally arrived. It’s such a joy to use. Gets you to the tape sound you’ve been looking for without the hassle of machine maintenance and high costs of tape. Sure, you don’t get to brag about your 1/2 inch, 1 inch or 2 inch (for the big machines) girth but if no one ever sees you producing then genuinely what’s the worry. I put one on each buss on a gentle setting and stack the sound into the mixbus. It gives me what I need sound wise. The interface could do with a refresh for higher screen resolutions maybe….my only criticism.

Tried & True Classic Nailed on the Head!

If you know what an actual multi track reel to reel sounds like, you’ll be familiar with the sound that this plug in imparts. It’s amazing to be honest and will save a ton of time and physical tape cost in the future. Not that I’d get rid of the actual machines, but I can see a lot more ease of use and sonic benefits from this wonderful emulation of a tried and true classic.

Sounds Very Good

The version I have is LUNA, so as an extension, it doesn't have all the features of the full version. But it sounds very good, giving a very nice polish to the signals... I want to try it together with 610, 1084, SSL4K... Now we have to wait for the native version to come out to use its maximum potential!
