Waves and Abbey Road Studios releases J37 Tape Saturation Plug-in (V9 Plug-ins updated to r14)


Waves and Abbey Road Studios have released the J37 tape saturation plug-in, a precision model of the very machine used to record many of the greatest masterpieces in modern music. It costs $249 but is on sale for the introductory price of $149.

With a variety of user-adjustable controls including Tape Speed, Bias, Noise, Saturation, Wow and Flutter, the Waves: Abbey Road J37 faithfully recreates the sonic signature of the original machine. In addition to the J37 itself, three exclusive oxide tape formulas have been modeled. Specially developed by EMI during the '60s and '70s, each formula has its own unique frequency response and harmonic distortion behavior. In order to push the envelope even further, a comprehensive Tape Delay unit has been added to complement those warm tones.
