wanna know some opinions about several tape emulators.
the most i know act like a maximizer.
are there any that allow to minimize this maximizer effect?
i just want the smoothness!

kind regards :D

Toneboosters 'Ferox' is pretty good! Great price too.
All the audience cares about is being fed a stream of songs that they know and can sing along to.

VarietyOfSound FerricTDS (not used much here, just mentioning because I see it's pretty much praised around)?

mellowmuse sat v.


also the waves kramer MPX. You get what you pay for in these two cases...

but yes roundtone is good.

p.s. i didn't try the new steinberg yamaha one but i bet you it will be good.

pps i actually, don't shoot me, don't mind magnetic II from nomad factory..

alot of people think it's too strong but they are not just dialling in subtle amounts, which is easy to do and works well.

if you WANT the distortion slammin effect it's very capable of that too. I was using a vocal that was full of nasty transients and the Magnetic took care of them quite well, but the satv and kramer did it better.

Voxengo TapeBus is brilliant. It's part of the AnalogFlux suite. Only 32 bit at the moment, though a 64 bit version will turn up eventually.
