Studer A800. $190.
For more than 30 years, artists and engineers alike have been drawn to the warm analog sound, solid low-end, and overall presence of the Studer® A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder. The sheer number of albums recorded on this legendary 2” analog tape machine — including classics from Metallica, Stevie Wonder, Tom Petty, A Tribe Called Quest, and Jeff Buckley — serve as shining examples of the musicality of analog tape. Fully authenticated by Studer, and modeled by UA’s world‑renowned team of DSP engineers and magnetic recording expert Jay McKnight, the Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder plug-in is the first product of its kind. By faithfully modeling the entire circuit path of the famous A800 machine from Allen Sides’ collection at Ocean Way Studios, this is the most accurate representation of multitrack analog tape recording available.
Hitsville Reverb Chambers. $190.
Hitsville Reverb Chambers gives you the glorious sound of the attic reverb chambers that shaped the Motown Sound. Available only from Universal Audio, Hitsville Reverb Chambers gives your recordings the soulful ambience of these hallowed spaces, as used by the producers of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and The Supremes. The two reverb chambers built into Hitsville’s attics were essential to Motown’s exciting sound. Universal Audio completely captured their distinct character — with help from the original Motown engineers who built them — so you can put yourself inside these legendary spaces.
Galaxy Tape Echo. $85.
Universal Audio has painstakingly captured every quirk and characteristic of this complex device. For example, just like the hardware, you can drive the input hard to add hair to a vocal, or widen a drum bus with fat analog character. Tweak the controls and harness seemingly infinite wow and flutter and pitch shifting combinations — perfect for energizing electric guitars. From rockabilly slapback to hazey trails of swirling delay, the Galaxy Tape Echo is a secret sauce for any source in any genre.
