u-he has announced the release of its Satin Tape Machine effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

With its three operation modes, SATIN is an all-rounder: Studio mode is predestined for multichannel tape saturation effects, all optionally controlled from a single instance. Delay mode offers complex multitap tape delays, and Flange does true through-zero tape flanging (think Small Faces “Itchycoo Park” or Hendrix “Bold as Love”). In all modes, the tape speed is continuously variable from 7.5 to 30 inches per second.

While aiming for a complete simulation of classic tape machines, u-he also decided to include the noise reduction circuits. This is not spurious whimsy: the classic compander models can be used for decoding old tape recordings, or for dynamic processing and colouration effects such as – a known trick amongst seasoned tape-ops – enhancing background vocals and e.g. acoustic guitars.

Satin features

  • 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 (saturation, transient-smoothing, HF compression etc.).
  • Full control over the ‘badness’ (head-bump, wow&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.

Satin for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for the introductory price of $89 USD until October 7th, 2013 (regular $129 USD). AAX is in development.
