Universal Audio has announced the release of the groundbreaking Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder plug-in for the UAD-2 platform. For more than three decades, 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 - by far the most popular professional 2" multitrack tape machine ever made.
Modeled by UA's world-renowned DSP engineers with help from 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 tape path and circuit electronics of the hardware, plus the sounds of four distinct tape formulas.
