Universal Audio has released its Studer A800 multichannel tape recorder plug-in — based on "by far the most popular professional 2-inch multitrack tape machine ever made" — for the UAD-2 platform. Modeled by UA's DSP engineers with help from AES magnetic recording expert Jay McKnight over a 12-month period, the A800 plug-in "faithfully models the entire tape path and circuit electronics of the hardware, plus the sounds of four distinct tape formulas."

The plug-in features include Studer-endorsed, UA-modeled emulation of one of the world's most popular multichannel tape recorder; provides the "warm, natural sound and punchy low-end response of 2-inch analog tape from clean, to saturated, to clipped;" provides an "accurate" A800 electronic path and magnetic tape model, including Input, Sync and Repro paths; and features four of the most popular tape formulas and calibration levels.
