      Great for saturation, compression and suprise.

      Alsways does something cool to your mixbus. Saturation and compression and with the element of suprise. Jump between presets and try out different settings.

      A quite handy tool!

      This product is such a versatile tool to have in the toolbox. Not only can it give the saturation and glue to a mix, the delays and harmonic distortions are just right to fit into a track.

      Обязательно для мастеринга!

      Необходимый инструмент для мастеринга, аналогов очень мало!

      Nice warmth

      I really like the warmth and character this gives my music

      Kind of...

      It does a thing, I guess.
      it doesn't really sound much like a 102 though, but it's kinda hard and gritty if you like that sort of thing..

      Excellent

      Actually, I bought it for myself, based on a mixing session that I worked on in another studio . Very impressed. Does what I expected and more. Adds warmth, all of the features others have already described.
      Will have to spend more time with it, post some mixes to to soundcloud and Bandcamp to get a feel for how maxes with it react to their algorithms. Will post an update sometime soon. A+.

      Secret weapon that makes my music alive!

      If I only recommend one analog tape recorder plug-in, I would definitely recommend Ampex atr-102.

      Ampex atr-102 tape recorders make music even more vibrant.

      Its unique punch, comp and even analog saturation make for a very interesting change.

      It is arguably one of the most satisfying plugins of the UAD plugin.

      Spot on!

      I've been producing since I was 22 and used countless numbers of the ATR-102 over the many years during mixing, and later in the process, for mastering projects.

      Digital recording can sound 'sterile,' even using tube gear emulations. But slap this on a 2 mix and feel it instantly get 'warmer' with the 'glue' us older guys were used to with tape. More like a 33 rpm record; recordings that are easier to listen to, and with less ear fatigue. And no maintenance or calibration. When a sale comes up, buy this plugin!

      The three tape types are pretty accurate. 456 always sounded 'brighter,' 900 with less coloration, and so on. This sounds like the ATR-102s I remember.

      Ultimate tape emulation !

      This tape is the best plugin to obtain rich and fuller sound, cannot imagine myself not using it for mixing and mastering !!

      Love it!!!

      Makes a mix sound like a proper record at the end. Other tape emulators I've tried from other brands don't even get close theres no comparison

      Thank goodness I don't have to buy tape

      Since I bought this I have used it on the master of everything I have done. My clients have been over the moon with the results. One very high profile client was shocked that it was a plugin and not the real thing, he loved the sound that much. It would be costing me a fortune if I had to buy real tape!! Great work UA.

      Sounds good but...

      It adds tape hiss and a ton of latency. Sucks up quite a bit of DSP as well. Nice saturation effect. I recommend using this on final mix down and not live performance.

      A must have!

      One of my "everyday plugin". I use it always in my master bus. On every work I do i use it. It gives great sound and character to the song. A top one!

      Amazing Plugin

      This is a night and day sounding plugin. On the master bus this takes a dull sounding recording and puts a finished record sheen over the entire mix. Nothing like I’ve ever used. A must every go round.

      Nice plugin!

      This is a great plugin. I'm not familiar with the actual hardware, but having toyed around with this, it is clearly designed to bring some shimmer and punch to your final mixes. It's sensitive, and so I'm still tweaking around under the hood. But I like the results, and find myself comparing different settings with bounced mixes.

      Analog goodness with digital ease

      Makes all the difference in the world! We’re talking going from cold and lifeless to classic “finished” record sound just by putting this thing on the master bus......incredible!!!
