u-he announces release date and price for Satin - Tape Effects plug-in
2nd September 2013
u-he have announced September 9th as the release date for their tape effects plugin Satin – for Mac OS X and Windows, with 64-bit support for both platforms. VST, VST3 and AU versions are included, with AAX support for ProTools in the pipeline.
With its three operation modes, Satin is designed to be an all-rounder: Studio mode is predestined for multichannel tape saturation effects, all optionally controlled from a single instance. Delay mode offers complex multitap tape delays, and Flange does true through-zero tape flanging (think Small Faces "Itchycoo Park" or Hendrix "Bold as Love"). In all modes, the tape speed is continuously variable from 7.5 to 30 inches per second.
While aiming for a complete simulation of classic tape machines, u-he also decided to include the noise reduction circuits. The classic compander models can be used for decoding old tape recordings, or for dynamic processing and colouration effects such as – a known trick amongst seasoned tape-ops – enhancing background vocals and e.g. acoustic guitars.
Price: $129 - There is a 4-week introductory price of $89.
