Home » News » McDSP Ships the TAPE APB Plug-in

McDSP is excited to be shipping the all-new TAPE APB Plug-in. The TAPE APB plug-in is an emulation of magnetic tape recording systems. TAPE is not like most other tape machine emulations, because it is an ANALOG tape machine emulation. TAPE uses a four-stage analog process to recreate the compression-like effect of recording to tape. The TAPE algorithm emulates characteristics of magnetic tape machines made primarily in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Different tape formulas (types), playback head configurations, low end ‘bump’ amount, and low frequency rolloff are all user controllable. The amount of tape compression is even user controllable. Input and output levels are also adjustable. Metering of input, output, and gain reduction are shown with dual VU meters.
