The Warm Analog Sound of the World’s Most Popular Multichannel Tape Machine and Four Famous Tape Formulas in One Plug-In.

For more than 30 years, artists and engineers alike have been drawn to the warm sound, solid “punchy” low-end, and overall presence of the Studer® A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder. The sheer number of albums recorded on this legendary 2” analog tape machine — including classics from Metallica, Stevie Wonder, Tom Petty and Jeff Buckley — serve as shining examples of the musicality of analog tape.

Authenticated by Studer, and modeled by UA’s world-renowned team of DSP engineers and AES magnetic recording expert Jay McKnight over a 12-month period, the Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder plug-in for UAD-2 is the first and only product of its kind. This plug-in faithfully models the entire multitrack tape circuit path and electronics of an A800 machine — plus the distinct sounds of multiple tape formulas. Put simply, it’s the world’s most accurate representation of professional analog tape recording, now available on Mac and PC.
