I'm really excited about Satin and can't wait to demo it, but I would also like to try Slate VTM because the thing is: I play rock. Well, guitar rock. To be more specific: '60s/'70s type of guitar rock. Only soft synths / sample libraries I use: Abbey Road Keyboard (piano, hammond, mellotron), Redtron (mellotron strings and brass) + Superior Drummer and AmpliTube. So no modern synth sounds, at all.
So my question is this: Is Satin more suitable for electronic/dance/synth orientated music?
I already have Kramer Master Tape and ToneBoosters ReelBus, but I'd like to have something like VTM (or Satin) that you can use for every channel AND busses.
So what you guys think, should I purchase Satin or Slate VTM?

I've not tried Satin, obviously. But I'll be buying that also.
So the short answer is, get both.
Satin will also have FX so that's another reason to buy it.

You can't be so "binary" on this question (no direspect at all here! ). First and most important, we don't know what Satin is gonna be able to create, we mainly have some articles here and there and a poor public demo of U-HE recorded with a cam mic (Musikmesse), so no idea about the sound. Even if U-HE is an awesome company, I'd rather demo it before considering which is the best for J4R10 purposes. According to what I red about Satin, I see it more as an effect than a pure emulation, but I might be wrong on this point, just my humble opinion (even if I know that there's a good part about emulating tape artifacts).
The Slate VTM is just about emulating non linearities, harmonic distortion, crosstalk, compression etc...which comes with the tape recorder (no flange or echo for example).
I'm definitely considering buying Satin, but I'm also VERY satsified by VTM and don't know what you're meaning by "Ilok fiasco".
I understand the war about Ilok, and I'm not really kind of there "philosophy" too but it has always worked perfectly on my comp, and I always try to buy Ilok licenses I'm sure about, so no problem about transfer fee on my side for example.
So yeah J4R10 Satin will obviously be a killer plug, but as a rock musician you should also check Slate VTM which is also made to be driven by hot music.
The best for you is to give a try to both and see what fits your style the most. And yeah if you have some bucks to burn, well consider both !

Apples and Oranges. And the OP didn't ask for opinions. He asked if SATIN will be better than Slate VTM. But, tests are not possible since SATIN is not out for the public yet!

$89.00 is a very good deal and not being dongled makes a big difference. Anticipation is high.

I will try Satin as soon as it's possible, but it's sad that I cannot demo VTM because I don't have iLok (not very keen to get one, either). But if VTM is so amazing that I've heard and read, then I should reconsider to get that darn dongle.
Exciting weeks ahead... Satin, SDRR, GTA V, our debut album...
