My favourite Tape Saturator! Can be used in many ways and has a lot of options, is very complete and more than useful. Thank you for this absolutely amazing VST.

One of my favorite saturators in a world inundated with saturators. The versatility and ease of use are truly exceptional considering it's free.

This is such a great plugin! Thanks for sharing.

It gives immediate "warmth" to your track, but can also be used to create weird sounding effects.

This is by far the closest to actual tape 'vibe' that I've come across in a plugin. And it's open source and there are Linux builds available. And it's free (though I subscribed to the dev's Patreon). What else could you ask for?

The ChowTape is easy to use and it sounds incredible. Also it is not only totally free, but also open source, which I find really likeable.
