Varg Vikernes has a great YouTube channel and a surprisingly relaxing speaking voice.

He has a lot of knowledge of paganism in Norway that he shares on YouTube, which is really interesting. I have no real judgement on his actions as it has been suggested that he was in a 'me or him' situation. A lesson not to make idle threats because someone might take them seriously. Essentially, natural selection played out.

EDIT: Kind of off topic. Sorry about that.

This. I love the music but hate the bullshit that goes along with it.

Ok. TBF to him my knowledge of the subject extends to a hurried 30 second reading of the first article I found.

Will check out his channel :tu:

As someone who's been into home recording since the early '80's, the advent of tape emulation plugs is something that has always made me chuckle. Those of us of a certain age have spent most of our formative years trying to figure out how to eliminate hiss and other artifacts inherent in the analog recording process. Now not only have noise-inducement plugs been invented, but the quality of that noise is now coveted and sold at a premium. Don't get me wrong, I own (and use) my fair share of these things, but the irony is not lost on me.

Obviously, I'm an old(er) guy, so if you'll excuse me, I now have to go and chase school children off my lawn, feed the pigeons, and rant about the government...

Cheers

:lol: Don’t chase ‘m over to my lawn!

I’m the same. There’s no way I’d deal with actual tape again. I’m so glad those days are over. I have a theory that more than the response of tape, people miss the noise. It provides a sense of space that’s missing from a lot of ultra clean digital recordings. As a guitar player, I luckily never have to deal with a mix that’s not got some noise. :help:

WTF, people recommending Varg Vikernes youtube channel on KVR without mentioning Varg is a unrepetent nazi who already killed people and is barely a step removed from a mass murderer like Anders Breivik.

Exactly my thoughts. He lives in Southern France now and is apparently as dangerous, right-wing and crazy as ever.

IK Multimedia Tape bundle. By far the best tape emulation I've heard to this day. Yes, including Acustica Audio Taupe which I also like a lot but it can't do proper crunched tape due to the technology limitations. It can go quite far considering the tech but not far enough.

It's worth noting though that Taupe is a massive package with an amazing EQ and a decent compressor included as well!
but... but... it is IK Multimedia!!!

I mean, it has the word "Multimedia" in it!! Like back in the older days of Netscape Navigator!!
:lol: 8) :hihi:
:lol:

I know.. I know. I thoroughly dislike the company in general (mainly the custom shop and all the annoyances that come with that) but I can not help but be amazed by the quality of this particular plugin suite. It is the definitive tape plugin suite at the moment. There's just no way around that.
