Quote of the Day

I can spend all evening goofing around in my studio, getting the right sound. Then the next day, I go in and nail it. If youre of that mind, if you want to do it yourself, I think its a good idea to have your own studio.- Michael Hedges

Slate Digital Virtual Tape Machines Available NOW
Perhaps one of the most complex audio plug-ins ever coded, the Slate Digital VIRTUAL TAPE MACHINE replicates the sound of TWO industry standard tape decks including NRG RECORDING's 16-track 2-inch machine and Howie Weinberg's 2-track 1/2" mastering deck.

Using the VTM, your music will have added life, depth, punch, and dimension. The digital "high end" will be replaced by lush and smooth analog highs. Your low end will have more depth, punch, and harmonic 'bigness'. Your mids will have added clarity and vibe.
