Tape Simulation Plug-In And Tape Delay

We previewed this in a video from Messe back in April. Now U-He has released Satin. Here's what they have to say about it...

We took a journey back to the Golden Age of magnetic tape recording. We wanted to recreate all kinds of tape machines in software, from the ground up. After many months spent on research, measurement and on developing an architecture that would be flexible enough for the job, we knew we had nailed it...
But we couldn't stop there: We added the old noise-reduction systems that were often (mis)used for timbral compression effects. Then more heads and a global feedback path, which made an uber-tape-delay and realistic 'one-shot' tape flanging possible.
Users familiar with analogue recording gear should instantly feel at home with Satin, and digital afficionados will also learn to love the magic of tape – Satin invites you to explore and find out for yourself.


  • 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

Pricing and Availability:

Satin will be $89 USD (+ VAT in EU) until October 7th 2013, then $129 USD
