      Great plugin

      Loving this on kick drums, snare, bass - adds saturation and mild compression without being over-powering.

      Problem?

      Yes, my only problem was, once you apply demo version to your tracks, you will have to buy it...this plug-in is actually this "magic dust" that help you turn any mix into a pro sounding audio. Amazing!

      It's magic.

      Just turning it on adds instant depth. Put it on your drum bus and it feels like you're in the room. I've got it on my 2 mix and it just makes everything fuller and more natural sounding. Be warned though, once it has been heard it cannot be unheard.....

      Easy to use and good tape flavour

      perfect for emulating multitrack tape template. very light on DSP. It has few, easy and effective controls, so it is perfect to add tape flavour without modifying the original sound.

      Easy to use and good tape flavour

      It is perfect for emulating multitrack tape template. Putting Oxide as first plug in on each track of your project is easy, because is very light on DSP. It has few, easy and effective controls, so it is perfect to add 3D tape flavour without modifying the original character of the sound.

      Nostalgic sound

      Even in modern digital production, if you want an unrealistic sound like an old record, I think this is useful.

      Works fantastic on my drum bus.

      Cool plug !

      Dsp saving, less tan over uad tape emulation, more simple to.
      Good sound, nice bass and treble....

      Smooth Saturator

      This is my favorite UAD tape plug-in to use on vocals and string instruments. It is subtle, smooth when turned relatively low, and gives a great, harmonically rich overdrive at higher input levels.

      Oxide Tape hits the mark

      Love this piece of software, really helps tighten instruments and drums a like and adds some charm and quality to your mix. A must have!

      15ips or 7.5ips - two flavours of "better"

      Once I put this on something, it's hard to take it off. It just makes most things sound a little bit better. I rarely have to touch the levels, just choose a tape speed and move on - perfect for tracking sessions.

      All three UA tape emulations...

      All three UA tape emulations are definitely worth owning for different reasons. The Oxide is my DSP-saving, time-saving tape.

      Track with it. Master with it. Great tool.

      A Must-Have

      Wether subtle or extreme, injecting Oxide Tape on my tracks has changed my ability to shape the sound of my mixes! Brilliant!
