The spinning tape can be stopped if you click on the reel.

Pretty sparse review sorry.. that was pretty uninformative. FWIW i disagree and would give it at least an 8 anyway.

I didn't like this plug...sounds too muddy, seems to be like a dirty distortion thant like a tape emu imo. I prefer the Roundtone, the Reelbus or for the more expensive one : the virtual tape machine from Steven Slate. Just my humble point of view...

yes I agree but its a okay tape plugin not amazing I like reel bus and roundtone better to. its pretty okay though at times some sources just dont sound right with those two. and I dont have a ilok so no slate tape even though I have heard it and its pretty amazing.

Endor, if you hear dirty distortion maybe you are cranking up the knobs too much.

I think KMT is really good for subtle tape-like coloring and vibe. There are and will be better ones, but I rate it at least 8.

honestly I want to give it a 7.5 or something only for a really stupid reason. but yes if your hearing it mud up and distort turn it down also you can set the VU meter. so if you are putting stuff it really hot you can make it have more headroom to. but its a good plugin not bad at all I use it a lot of vocals lately. yes the distortion can get over distorted easy but that's why you can control headroom and distortion.

What I'm saying is that it just sounds too harsh and coarse to my ears, tape sound tends to be more smooth/round and gently compressed. To me Roundtone (for example) is less agressive and more subtle. I would give MPX a 7 not more, also considering the fact that it's not worth the price Waves is selling it (200$). But once again it's my subjective point of view, just my feeling after trying it so I can also understand that lot of people can fall in love with the MPX. Anyway, lot of kvr members still say that there are no true tape emu for the moment...pretty hard quest !!

its not a great tape emulation to me it feels kinda like a saturation plus eq with some delays if you want em. but its okay not bad but not amazing I do like the other two mentioned before way better but this is a good plugin effect. not a amazing tape emulation but a decent tool and effect.

yea that is basically the way I think of this plugin I love my roundtone and reelbus. yea they are not perfect but they sound great this works on some things that those don't so I am more than happy they are all tools.

I like subtle vibe it delivers, for instance "Mastering Soft Clean Compression" -preset.

If that preset is harsh and coarse check your gain staging.
