So you think UA will do a Tape Plugin?

I was checking out a poll on the UA forum where the overwhelming majority of folks said the next UAD plugin should be a tape emulation. You think they will do it? All this talk of dynamic convolution sounds promising. I will be first in line if they do.

Aren't most of UA's emulations not convolution based?

Correct, but I saw a guy's post on here saying that all the characteristics of analog tape could be emulated by dynamic convolution. I saw an essay on the UA website explaining dynamic convolution (It was over my head though). So I was wondering if they were turning that direction anytime soon. I've been using Voxengo Tapebus, which is partly based on convolution and I think it sounds pretty good, although I know its not 100%.

But I'm just hoping UA is listening, because based on the quality of their plugins, I know a tape emulation would be nice.

I could be completly wrong but wasn't UA pointing out why their emulations are better than all those convolution (dynamic or not) based emulation plugins and why convolution is not an option... This is how I remember this article you're referring to. So, I don't think they'll release anything based on convolution.

I've been using the Neve 5042 on loan for the last few days. It's called a tape machine emulator. I don't know about that.....I mean it doesn't have sucky S/N, it doesn't require constant calibration and maintenance and it doesn't draw amps like a ShopVac, but in 15ips mode, strapped across a mix bus, it's wonderful. Someone on another forum referred to it as being a bit like sonic crack. I agree. It's one of those things that, once you have strapped it on, you miss it (and it's obvious) when it's no longer there.
