1. Universal Audio has released its Studer A800 multichannel tape recorder plug in - based on "by far the most popular professional 2-inch 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 A800 plug-in faithfully models the entire tape path and circuit electronics of the hardware, plus the sounds of four distinct tape formulas." It provides the "warm, natural sound and punchy low-end response of 2-inch analog tape from clean to saturated, to clipped." $349. Pro Audio Review Ja 11
