      Very good!

      Sounds good and easy to use! It gives sound as soon as you place it in insert!

      O. Lamas


      Not magic, but it’s a cool trick on all tracks.

      I have quite a bit of other plugins that attempt this. Oxide just gets it right. It just sounds cool on everything I place it on.
      Try it and you will love it.

      A. Bromke


      Great but subtle

      great stuff-nice saturation -pretty intuitive to use etc.

      I. Sisko


      Simple and Great!

      Super easy to use and always a great sound. I used it on all projects since the purchase.

      J. Aguirrezabalaga


      So easy getting great sounds

      Very intuitive, really easy to get that smooth and musical tape saturation I was looking for.



      Excellent !

      Fait très très bien ce qu'on attend de lui, je le recommande vivement !

      After decades of music production that started with analog tape machines I was never a believer in these tape machine simulators until I tried this one. It’s tough to describe what it does. There’s a warmth and depth that is immediately pleasing. To really hear the scope of what it does, run a very familiar piece of music into a stereo virtual channel and put oxide on an insert. Adjust input and output to taste. An A/B comparison will reveal something you’ll notice easily but find difficult to describe in words.
      I want it on everything now!

      The Oxide Tape Recorder plugin was all that it was hyped it would be. I found the way it causes the vocal tracks to stand out but not over power the rest of the project is just what I was looking for.

      A. Shevchenko


      Simple and powerful

      Very nice sounding tape emulator. Easy make sound warmer and bigger.

      Š. Kominko


      Excellent tape.

      Distinctive, warm, excellent plugin. Thank you Universal Audio.

      S. Shaw


      More of an effect than a tape emulation

      I agree with some discussion on UAD forum, that Oxide's coloring is too strong - this can be good or bad, as always, but if you're looking for a subtle tape emulation, Oxide is not the choice and would sound cheap (go for Studer). But if you're looking for tone shaping, it is a great tool.

      Oxide Tape Recorder

      Very useful plugin and it sounds amazing on vocals

      R. Gérard


      Simple and efficient

      This plugin brings nice touches at a glance. It is an excellent value for money. Low on dsp, it is tempting to use it on everything.

      L. Brigham-Bowes


      instant warmth

      Especially useful and integral on LUNA

      A. Gallab


      Not bad but could use more features

      It's not a bad tape recorder but isn't that versatile. Maybe some people like that but I feel like the lack of features don't allow you to do what you can from a true tape recorder.

      Sonido ligero de Cinta

      Supongo que al ser un plugin con muy pocos ajustes, tampoco se puede esperar mucho. Hace su función y en algunos tracks me ha gustado, en otros no he notado gran diferencia y ahí es cuando echas en falta poder realizar ajustes. Cumple su función.

      O. Siqueiros


      Something special

      Difficult to explain, but easy to feel, when using the oxide tape "something" changes, if the vocal sound was good, it just improves, I don't know what it is, but it becomes more "pleasant" to my ear.

      M. Kaloshyn


      Love this tape!

      Glue, bass, hi!

      A. Gandy


      A must have

      What this did on my live pre recorded drums was insane! Not only does it warm it up it also brought some clarity. I’ve used it on instruments and vocals and it never lets me down.
