Sly-Fi Digital Kaya v1.0.4 WIN-AudioUTOPiA
There's only one Kaya... literally. S. Husky Hoskulds made it by taking an old Ampex tube tape deck and hardwiring the preamp directly to the tape head. He calls his unit 'Pa', a minimal box with swampy distortion and a very heavy bottom.

I started with Pa's dirt, then added controls to make it more flexible. An assymetric Treble control can rebalance the sound towards the top, or tilt it down into murky darkness. An Abuse knob does exactly what you'd expect it to do. Blend allows you to tuck in the overall effect for subtler applications.

What I love about Kaya is it never harshes out, it's always warm even when it's gone nuclear. A one-trick pony, but what a trick it is.

Sly-Fi Digital Axis EQ v1.0.3 WIN-AudioUTOPiA Sly-Fi Digital Axis EQ v1.0.3 WIN-AudioUTOPiA
Soft / VST Instruments 28-03-2016
There's a reason the eq that inspired this plugin has endured 45 years of musical fashion & trends: it does all the right things to sound. But even a stunning classic isn't safe from my meddling tastes!

For starters, this eq's curves are a bit tighter than the original. Next, I added a Saturation knob to overdrive a customized op-amp. That knob generates a very creamy, lush distortion, I'll often use the Sat on its own, no EQ'ing. It's fat, and very much a signature Sly-Fi sound! 

Stepped/fixed controls can be perfect, or they can get in my way, so I added a UBK mode where all freq and gain knobs sweep freely; I love being able to point this magical eq in between the usual frequencies.

Last, I put both a classic 'A' and modern 'B' mode on a switch with the UBK mode, so you can choose the one that works best for each track.

At the request of Tchad Blake, Axis can now transfer your settings from A or B mode straight to UBK mode for fine tuning. It also sports a phase flip switch, because sometimes things just sound better flipped.
u-he Satin v1.2.0.2577 FIXED HAPPY NEW YEAR-R2R u-he Satin v1.2.0.2577 FIXED HAPPY NEW YEAR-R2R
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
Slate Digital Virtual Tape Machines v1.1.9.9 WIN VST-AudioUTOPiA Slate Digital Virtual Tape Machines v1.1.9.9 WIN VST-AudioUTOPiA
Virtual Tape Machines is designed to have the big, fat, warm, deep, rich, of Analog Tape Machines.

To capture the sound of tape is to capture a living, breathing sound that dynamically reacts to the music going on to it. Slate Digital utilized their electrical engineering resources as a foundation for a comprehensive study of the physical processes that occur when recording to analog tape through a tape machine.

Two industry-standard machines were precisely modeled including a 2 inch 16 track from NRG Recording, and a ½ inch 2 track machine from Howie Weinberg Mastering, the VTM is designed to give mixes an authentic analog vibe with dimension, fatness, depth, and warmth.

Two tape machine types:
2" 16 track.
1/2" mastering deck.
Two tape formulations.
Two speeds: 15 ips and 30 ips.
Noise reduction control and auto mute.
Wow & Flutter control.
Bass alignment control.
Normal, Low & High Bias settings.
Level Calibration.
VU ballistics.
Grouping control.
Settings global or per channel.
Tape reels start and stop in sync with DAW transport.
Native Instruments Supercharger v1.3.0 Update Incl Patched and Keygen-R2R Native Instruments Supercharger v1.3.0 Update Incl Patched and Keygen-R2R
Soft / VST Instruments 20-12-2015
Supercharger is a versatile compressor effect plug-in delivering warm, colorful, tube-style compression, modeled from a one-of-a-kind hardware unit.

The effect is particularly simple to use, with just a few clearly laid-out controls providing a wide range of sounds from subtle warmth to complete devastation. The input knob and convenient visual display allow producers to set exactly the right input level to drive the compressor. Once the input level is set, producers can quickly dial in a wide range of compression effects using a single 'Compress' knob. The Compress knob is a macro knob, automatically adjusting multiple parameters including make-up gain, the responsiveness of the release control, and the degree of saturation. This means that each position of the dial provides an ideal setting. Punch and Dirt buttons deliver added impact and saturation.

Supercharger complements the existing range of Komplete studio effects with harmonically-rich tube sound, and is optimized for use in Maschine.
McDSP Analog Channel v6.1.0.8 WIN-AudioUTOPiA McDSP Analog Channel v6.1.0.8 WIN-AudioUTOPiA
Analog Channel emulates the sounds of high-end analog tape machines, tape, and channel amplifiers.
Analog Channel is 2 plug-ins:

AC101 – Emulates analog channel amplifier circuits
AC202 – Emulates analog tape machines

The AC101 configuration acts as a digital pre-amp allowing even excessive amounts of gain without digital distortion. A drive control determines where the audio "sits” in the saturation/compression region, and even the attack and release times of the distortion character are adjustable.

The AC202 configuration emulates analog tape machines. In addtiion to standard tape machine parameters such as bias, playback speed, and IEC1/2 equalization, AC202 offers controls well beyond the limits of the reel-world devices including adjustable low frequency roll off and head bump – independent of playback speed. The user can select from several playback head types, tape formulations, and even control the tape saturation recovery time.


Library of presets emulating analog mixing systems
Real-time display of saturation curves and calibrations
Analog Saturation modeling
Double precision processing
Ultra low latency
Mono and stereo versions
