R2R By CDSoundmater Vs. UAD Studer A800 Tape Sim!!!

Postby KP2009 » Thu Dec 09, 2010 10:43 am

Has anyone gotten a Chance to compare these two.. Seems The UAD-2 A800 is getting alot of Praise from Gearslutz Forum Users and A few Friends of mine are Raving about the A800, but they don't have Nebula yet.

Anyone here compared, that has a UAD-2 and the R2R Library.. Which sounds more Authentic and has the Best Sat/Character??

Thanks for any Reviews..

put it this way - Im not sorry I sold my UAD2 card...its the usual story - initial impressions seem good - you get the seductive sexy GUI - some elements of the hardware character - but then you realise its that same old plugin sound...a veil, plastic saturation, hyped...
...
and its $350 for pleasure of that plugin sound...plus the extra DSP needed to run it from $500-$1500...

Ive long since realised money is better spent on analogue hardware, Nebula programs or digital specific process plugins like Limiters and Reverbs...

UAD and expensive plugins - are mostly an illusion IMO...a cartoon interpretation of the real deal.

Nebula is HD film footage.

I second the 'HD film footage'.
Just think of it as multi-sampling vs. pure modeling.
If you sample a Rhodes, it sounds like a Rhodes.
If you're modeling a Rhodes, it sounds like a Rhodes,
but doesn't feel like one.
I've tried McDsp, Virsyn, Psp; they all have the coating,
but none of them have the guts.
When I saw the UAD-trailer, I immediately
heard the same ol' plugin.
That's why it's actually true that all digital coded
plugins sound the same; slightly different curves,
but no mojo.
R2R is one of the finest achievements (if not the best)
in sonic quality, since the dawn of digital audio.
And it can only get better.

I have compared the UAD Studer 800 with R2R Studer and I prefer the R2R a lot in all occasion. UAD is warm (low end hyped) and saturated but it hasn't THAT analog, deep and "real" tape sound which R2R has. UAD still the best tape-plugin emulation BUT R2R is another universe. And I have the 1st R2R release only! IMHO.

Has anyone tested the new Nomad Factory VST Tape Sim called Magneto. There's a special agent price on "don't crack". seems intersting because of the price.....maybe.....or maybe not..!?

is it worth that price of 49,- ?
anyone to say something about it?

All I know is that they have trouble to get it work with Logic (au version). Logic freeze and crash very often (I have read it discussion from a swedish logic pro forum). I don´t really know how it sounds tough.

Nomadfactory is the most fake plugin builder. Digital, 2 dimensional and plastic sound. Orrible.
