u-he Satin

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.
