      From 2D to 3D

      I already own the Studer and Ampex, but couldn’t pass up a sweet deal on the Oxide. Glad I went for it too! First track I put it on was bass, and it immediately went from sounding like flat to fat on the bottom end. Lovely plugin!

      Analog goodness!

      Adds a nice roundness to the low-end and also makes the highs sizzle and saturate. Very handy plug-in. Although I don't have the Studer A800 yet, this one is very useful and brings a nice analog tape warmth to my mixbus. I found it works best as an accumulated effect, where as you have many instances of it throughout your project in separate tracks as opposed to just in the mixbus or master. Very nice plugin!

      Oxide Tape Recorder - extra harmonic content

      I use Oxide to add pleasurable fuzziness and extra harmonic content to the sound of my guitar. Everything sounds better with Oxide.
