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.

Probably the most versatile and brilliant sounding tape simulator out there at the moment, and it's free.

This thing rivals even the best (and most expensive) paid tape emulators out there. Try it yourselves! Consider supporting the creator through his patreon account if you like it.
