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 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.
Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder Plug-In features include:
- Studer-endorsed, UA-modeled emulation of the world's most popular Multichannel Tape Recorder.
- Provides the warm, natural sound and punchy low-end response of 2" analog tape from clean, to saturated, to clipped.
- Provides accurate A800 electronic path and magnetic tape model, including Input, Sync and Repro paths.
- Features four of the most popular Tape Formulas and Calibration Levels.
A Note about UAD Powered Plug-ins
UAD-2 and UAD-1 Powered Plug-Ins run exclusively on Universal Audio's UAD DSP Accelerator Cards. All available Powered Plug-Ins are included in the UAD Software Installer/Updater Package; and every Plug-In title has a separately activated 14-day trial -- so users can try before they buy, at their own pace. Once a user decides to purchase a Plug-In, they can click on the Plug-In toolbar "Buy" button, which automatically takes them to the www.uaudio.com website and carts the plug in; or this can be done manually via browsing our webstore. Once the purchase is complete, a downloadable Authorization File is made available. Users simply drag and drop this Auth. File into the UAD meter, and the Plug-In is authorized. UAD-1 users can transfer Plug-In licenses to UAD-2 format for free (one time only). Via Customer Support, Universal Audio also allows registered UAD owners to sell their UAD card(s) with Plug-In licenses, transferring the licenses to the new card owner (subject to Universal Audio approval).
