    the great artists of electronic music in general. has a very creamy sound. I already tested several tape and reverb simulators. but I have not yet reached the level set. Does anyone have any ideas that I can help and help others with this same dilemma?

    Try to be specific. What creamy sound exactly? Sound design or processing? Timestamp?
    Cream can be anything from overdriven preamps to parallel saturation to parallel compression.

    hi. creamy sound comes from various things.

    -high pass, low pass filters where needed.
    - fast-medium attack on compressors, soft clippers , saturators, multiband compression during mastering.
    but yeah, the most important is fast attack setting on compressors.
    also, you achieve better sound when you apply more than one compressor in smaller gain-reduction doses than just 1. you basically massage the sounds/channels/tracks/busses/auxes/groups into one big entity. listen to the song, and treat those which jump out. most of the time they put waves L2 on every channel , doing nothing just sitting there, and if something goes haywire those processors catch those peaks and apply hard clipping on them(limiting).
    for solid low end : mono under 100-150hz.
    buss everything! treat individual tracks , busses and auxes too. give yourself plenty headroom, final volume comes during mastering.

    its usually eq, multiband compression, brickwall limiting and proper balancing on the final mastering (hard to achieve with perfect results unless you have expensive equipment).

    So maybe you are looking for tape saturation or preamp character, and overall good mixing.
