I have been really interested in tape emulation plugins to balance the use I do with my HEDD 192 from Cranesong. I wanted alternatives for occasional works, especially when it comes to quick digital fixes. I had decided to get the subscription from Slate Digital and was happy to see the Virtual Tape was included. Using this plugin for the last year has been providing incredible results. Sometimes, it's really close to my hardware in terms of warmth it can provide or for the low end it brings out of any songs. For electronic music, in a mixdown situation, it really does a great difference on the kicks and basses. I can only recommend it.
