Voxengo has released CRTIV Tape Bus, a tape saturation plug-in available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST and VST3 plug-in formats (including native 64-bit support), for Mac OS X (v10.7 and later), and Windows computers.
CRTIV Tape Bus recreates characteristic elements of the reel-to-reel tape sound. This includes saturation, modulation noise and smearing effects which are known for the "analog" feel they bring to audio recordings. This plug-in also applies a selected impulse response taken by Voxengo from the existing tape machines.
CRITV Tape Bus features:
- Saturation controls.
- Tape medium controls.
- Preset manager.
- Undo/redo history.
- A/B comparisons.
- Contextual hint messages.
- All sample rates support.
- 1 ms compensated processing latency.
Price: $34.95. CRTIV Tape Bus is free for Voxengo Premium Membership owners ($259.95). Demo version of CRTIV Tape Bus can be downloaded freely at the Voxengo web site.
