The Oxide Tape Recorder plug-in provides UA's revolutionary magnetic tape emulation technology in a simple, affordable package — with all of the essential features. By harnessing the musical, mixable sound of tape, Oxide gives you clarity, punch, and warmth so every track "sounds like a record.” The Oxide Tape Recorder plug-in was engineered by the same team behind the industry-leading UAD Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Machine and Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Machine plug-ins. Designed in conjunction with AES magnetic recording expert Jay McKnight, Oxide gives your tracks and mixes the warmth, presence, and vibe of professional analog tape. Whether you’re tracking in real time using an Apollo interface, or mixing in your DAW, Oxide’s intuitive controls deliver musical results for beginners and pros alike. And when you purchase Oxide, you’re eligible for a discount toward UA's deeper-featured Studer and Ampex Magnetic Tape Bundle that may be redeemed at any time. By emulating fat tape compression and colorful circuit behaviors, Oxide gives your tracks and mixes the cohesive glue that only analog tape can provide.
