I am looking for a really high quality tape saturation plugin, that can both add nice coloration, but also tame the harsh highs. I checked out u-he Satin, does anyone have this plugin and can tell me if it’s really good?
I really like Hornet’s tape plugin - on sale at moment - Not as many bells n whistles as Satin but if your wanting a vintage tape sound its great on buses or your master channel. A lot cheaper as well.
Works wonders on synthwave tracks but I’ve used it for a lot of my tracks - very natural sounding tape emulation.
Don’t know the Satin, however I love the Softube’s “Tape”. It includes 3 tape-machines, you have the option to change the “speed”, EQ high-end, use noise, parallel Mix-Knob…all in one it’s a superb and easy to use plugin! If you wait, it’s possible to get it for around 50$-60$.
Hornet Tape does work as well, and is much cheaper, however I didn’t use it much.
I’m Softube Tape user. I like it. It has a high-frequency knob, so you can additionally tame harsh-brightness, but you can also add soft and pleasant brightness and air to sounds that need it.
Just wondering has anybody tried Wave Factory Cassette?
Just got it, and it is now confirmed as a prize in the dark cinematic music contest !
It’s not like a classic tape saturation plug-in, which of course is studio quality. This plug-in is more gritty, and actually works great for tension.
Although I often use Soft tube tape machine, there is an other one I would suggest to you. Try slate -digital Tape and next one and great is Universal Audio.
Cool, thanks will check those out. Still I would have hoped someone in here used Satin, as u-he makes amazing synthesizers that are very popular.
