Reels is a tape emulation plugin with built-in echo section and tape start and stop effect.

Based on an old Japanese portable tape recorder with a very distinct Lo-Fi analog sound, Reels emulates all the imperfections of consumer reel-to-reel recorders.

Reels will add a very rough retro analog sound to your mixes. If you are looking for a Hi-Fi mastering tape emulation, this is not the plugin for you.

I really, really like this effect! 90s hiphop drums are conjured instantly when you throw this on your drum track. Nice tape-stop effect to boot. I just got this, but this effect is perfect for hiphop music in general, it's just a wonderful way to dirty up the sound in a VERY organic sounding way.
