I just tried XLN Audio Retro Color vs ValhallaDelay in terms of getting that classic tape sound and ValhallaDelay sounds amazing.

It seems like I can't isolate that effect with ValhallaDelay, not possible to use ValhallaDelay simply as a tape saturation.

I'm kinda getting obsessed with 80s vibe now...

Check out this amazing youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9DfSCk-6Ko

That lead me to look up the music and wtf how does this guy do it:

Bought it straight off the announcement email. Not disappointed. The HiFi/clean tape may dislodge EchoBoy from the first chair.

Not sure why you would say that.

What I've been using:

Tape Echo
Past
Mix:100%
Delay time minimum 10ms.

Then you can dial up age, drive and wow to whatever you'd like.

It introduces some latency, sure, but not that much.

Can set the Delay Time to 0.0ms now, so should only be same latency as every other plugin.

Clean Tape emulation preset, adjust to taste:

<ValhallaDelay pluginVersion="1.0.6" presetName="Clean Tape" Mix="1" DelayStyle="0" DelayLSync="0.25" DelayLNote="0.20000000298023223877" DelayL_Ms="0" DelayRSync="0.25" DelayRNote="0.20000000298023223877" DelayR_Ms="0.30000001192092895508" DelaySpread="0.5" DelaySpacing="0.5" DelayRatio="0.61414140462875366211" RepeatSwell="1" TapA="1" TapB="1" TapC="1" TapD="1" Feedback="0" Width="1" DriveIn="0" Age="0" Diffusion="0" DiffSize="1" LowCut="0" HighCut="1" ModRate="0.27383410930633544922" ModDepth="0.5" Wow="0" Flutter="0" FreqShift="0.5" FreqDetune="0.57999998331069946289" PitchShift="0.5" PitchDetune="0.5" Mode="0.041666667908430099487" Era="1" Reserved1="0" Reserved2="0" Reserved3="0" Reserved4="0"/>

All the synths in Resonance are the Arturia Minimoog emulation. To get the lofi sound it was exported into a Portastudio-style tape machine, slowed down and exported back into the DAW.

Vortifex, so he used a physical tape machine? No idea what a "Portastudio-style tape machine is"

You can turn any 3 head real to real tape machine into a tape delay via some trickery. I'm assuming that's the approach they attempted to capture in the Hi-Fi mode. See here:

i owned this model about 8 years and more in my youth...

...but not as a tape delay unit, the Revox B77 tape machine (for instance) might be an interesting option for an emulation if it might be the purpose me thinks...

:tu:
10ms is about the time it takes sound to go 9ft. I’m playing piano through it live without any perceptible issue. Anything that adds wow and flutter (like retro color) will have to do likewise.
