The Goodness of Tape, in a Plug-in

To develop Satin, u-he took a trip back to the Golden Age of magnetic tape recording. After many months engaged in meticulous research and measurement, they developed a software plug-in that nails the sonic magic of tape machines. Satin delivers the whole analog tape experience - and you control it all. It starts with tape formulation, where you have a selection of emulsions. You also get your choice of noise-reduction encoding/decoding. Tape compression, wow and flutter, and other artifacts? Definitely. Satin even offers a global feedback path for organic tape delay and tape flanging effects. At Sweetwater, we love tape. Instantiate u-he Satin, and you will, too.

u-he Satin Tape Machine Plug-in Features at a Glance:
  • Mix-and-match emulation spans all major historical developments in tape technology
  • Control multiple instances from one panel - glue multiple tracks together
  • High-quality: internal sample rate up to 384kHz, continuous tape speed control
  • All the goodness of tape, including saturation, transient-smoothing, HF compression, etc.
  • Full control over head-bump, wow and flutter, asperity noise, hiss, etc.
  • Record / repro EQ standards (separately selectable), classic NR compander standards
  • Extra FX modes: through-zero tape flanging, host-synchronizable 4-tap stereo delay
Instantiate u-he Satin and juice your tracks with the mojo of tape!

Sweetwater Advice

Tyler Berggren

For those of us that may not have had the privilege of working with real tape machines, Satin is about as close as we can possibly get. It does everything from adding subtle shine to lo-fi grunge. It also is a KILLER tape delay and chorusing effect too! This lives on all of my mix groups and generally as an effect return for a warm, organic slap delay as well. And for adding some of that elusive "air', I crank the pre emphasis control!
