Slate Digital releases "Virtual Tape Machines" analog tape emulation plug-in

Slate Digital has released Virtual Tape Machines tape emulation plug-in. It is designed to add the big, fat, warm, deep, rich, sound of Analog Tape Machines to DAW mixes.

To capture the sound of tape is to capture a living, breathing sound that dynamically reacts to the music going on to it. Slate Digital has utilized their electrical engineering resources as a foundation for a comprehensive study of the physical processes that occur when recording to analog tape through a tape machine.

Two industry-standard machines were precisely modeled including a 2 inch 16 track from NRG Recording, and a ½ inch 2 track machine from Howie Weinberg Mastering. The VTM is designed to give mixes an authentic analog vibe with dimension, fatness, depth, and warmth.
