What Plug-In am I looking for?

What Plug-In am I looking for?

The obvious answer is an analogue emulation of some kind.

When I listen to classic albums of yesteryear recorded through great consoles onto tape I hear a low end warmth, almost like a mushy glue but still with definition. And the high end is always silky but still present.

It's the opposite of what we expect from digital, where everything is clean and supposedly brittle.

There are hundreds of plugs now from tape emus to pre amps, saturators, to valve plug ins. Do I need to use a combination of all of these to get the flavour I'm looking for? Or are there some renowned plugs that will help me get towards this result?

You can't get this with a plugin, gotta use nice preamps.
