Plug-In Studer® A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder
Studer® A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder
Still learning how to fully use this plug in, but when it's instantiated on my individual tracks, it's almost like I can actually hear the sound in 3D. It adds a presence that has me shaking my head in disbelief. Amazing. Absolutely amazing. That, used in conjunction with the Ampeg ATR 102 on my master buss gives me the sound I've been looking for. My engineer has scolded me for trying to mix (lol), but once he's used this (being an analog guy) he was totally blown away also, ESPECIALLY after taking it through its paces. UA has totally knocked this out of the park.
Studer® A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder - Became LUNA
I kept having this idea why isn't a DAW like recording to Tape, Studer, Ampex, etc that all have remarkable ranges and avenues for sonic invention. Along came LUNA.
Unfortunately for me I have no cheese grater MAC, but I use this in console on my old iMac and it is so Fantastic!! thank- you.
Pour moi il est indispensable pour mes pistes.
True to the original
My fav of the UAD plugs to date. Subtle, formidable and a must on my buss tracks. Keep your mix simple, keep it clean, use a few great plugs like this, and it’s all gonna sound sweet.
There’s no question that if you are a Luna user this is a no brainer must have. But whatever DAW that you use this would definitely be some glue to bring it all together.
I love it.
It gives my tracks and mixes that extra life and punch!
A must have
If you want tape saturation, this is the plugin. I use this on drums, guitars, bass, sometimes vocals, and always on my 2 track when I sum down a mix.
On all channels at all time - amazing
Like that tape deck - it adds the things the mix is missing. freshness
I use this on all of my tracks and it does not disappoint. Love it
As some one who began recording on tape, I am very pleased with the Studer A800. It adds punch to the bottom and a nice lift on top. After demoing this alongside the other UA tape machine, and tape machine from another manufacturer on my master buss, the A800 to me, had the best overall sonic balance. I didn't need the 14 days to decide this was a keeper.
I own multiple “tape” plugins and have owned multiple actual tape machines. This one is great for adding that tape warmth/sound.
Adds to any track!
This tape emulation works wonderfully. I’ve been using it on mandolin, acoustic and electric guitars, drums and vocals. I then use the ampex plugin on the mix buss with stellar results.
I use it on everything!!
All I can say is once you use this, it will become addictive. I use it on everything, it thickens and adds a certain amount of saturation that makes your digital music sound analog.
best sounding tape ever. You'll know as soon as you turn in on.
always use on channel guitar. ANDRES OSORIO TOLEDO
Always use on every channel, sounds amaaazing!
Sweetens the mix
Adds nice saturation and enlivens the midrange without the hiss and latency of the venerated alternative. Perfect for mastering.
Insert on every channel, gang’em up and everything sounds better ;)
