u-he has released version 1.1 of the Satin tape machine/delay effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
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.
Changes in Satin v1.1
- Added lower hiss levels and auto mute.
- Fixed buffersize bug in delay feedback.
- Added lower tape speeds.
- Various little bugs fixed.
Satin for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) is available to purchase for $129 USD.

u-he has released a public beta AAX for Mac version of the Podolski freeware synthesizer instrument.
Podolski is a simple, CPU-efficient virtual analogue synthesizer.
Here’s the normal Podolski 1.2 installer plus our first incarnation of an AAX plug-in:
We believe this to work, and while we’re adding AAX development into our development workflow, we hope that the brave among you out there will give this a spin. Please report any crashes with a crash.log here, and – if possible – compare whether or not this version behaves and sounds the same as its VST/AU counterpart.
If all goes well we’ll need only a few days to port it to Windows, we’ll have to buy 3 more iLoks to add to our build and testing servers and we might get to release AAX betas for everything shortly therafter.
Make sure to give some feedback at the KVR forum if you get a chance to check the AAX beta.
