The "Studer" UAD I found to kinda be...useless. This guy on the other hand is a blast. Crack into adjusting bias, tape formula, speed, etc. I think it's loads of fun. I've got a Tascam 388 & an Otari 5050. Sweet, but I can't use them like I can with this plugin & in as many places-it's not a substitute but what it is most importantly is a crazy fun tool to fuck with sounds.
Check it out cuz it's bitchin' not cuz you wanna have an "analog" for analog. Disregard that nonsense. It's just a tool to shape sound & you'll be really happy. 14 day free trial. Find out if it's something you wanna own. Trust your ears. For me? It's great. Maybe it will be for you too.
