Warm Up Your Sound

Tape recordings have a musical quality that digital mixes often lack. TAIP brings this quality into your DAW.
It will add some authentic analog heat to your tracks, without the need to route any audio outside the box.

Tape plugins are not a new concept. However, our emulation method is. Instead of using traditional DSP, we've developed TAIP around an AI algorithm designed to decipher the invisible nuances of analog circuits.

The result is a truly faithful tape emulation that's intuitive and creative in use – with some added features to accommodate a modern workflow. Use TAIP to bring a touch of warmth and glue to your tracks, or 'drive it like you hate it' as an alternative to your distortion plugins.


  • AI-powered algorithm, giving you the true warmth and behavior of analog tape.

  • Flexible feature set, allowing you to create a custom 'tape flavor' for any need.

  • Use TAIP to add musical saturation and glue to drums, instruments, vocals and beyond.

  • Read more about our AI emulation approach on our site.

TAIP comes loaded with 135 presets created by friends of BABY Audio - including:

  • Mark Needham (Fleetwood Mac, The Killers, Bloc Party, Elton John).
  • Max Jaeger (Ariana Grande, Kanye West, Drake, Calvin Harris).
  • Eestbound (Travis Scott, Young Thug, Jazz Cartier).
  • Rob Kleiner (Sia, Britney Spears, David Guetta, Cee Lo).
  • Cesar Sogbe (Prince, David Byrne, Jennifer Lopez).

Display Options:

  • Switch between three backgrounds (Black / Gray / White).
  • Plugin window fully resizable.

This tape machine emulation plugin is great for adding character, wormth and even disctortion.
It's based on AI training model of a real hardware tape and sounds great.
