The reel project - part 1
The reel project aims at improving analog tape simulators in software, and tries to discover whether it is feasible to develop a similator that really closely mimics the 'reel thing'.

There's now a part 2 on the spectral changes induced by analog tape.
It also shows the effect of the tape recorder unit itself
Ferox is by far my favorite tape sim. I'm not sure why it doesn't get more love. It doesn't do "subtle" as well as something like waves MPX, but when I want something to really sound like it was recorded on an old R2R, 4-track or a VHS cassette, nothing else comes close.
