VTM-M2 "Vintage Tape Machine" is the result of over five years of research, testing, and development, and more than a year of additional coding and development. It represents a collaboration between Michael Angel and Michael Heiler, also know as "Mx2", or "Michael Times Two".

VTM-M2 is a saturating tape compressor, capable of high-end mastering-quality limiting and tape compression, and multi-track tape uses from subtle to heavily driven gain. It represents a "new level in realism" for tape compression, and is the long-awaited "3rd stage" tape compression for use with CDSoundMaster's R2R and TB+ Program Libraries for the Nebula Pro plug-in.

The VTM-M2 is based upon CDSoundMaster's original development process called "Virtual Interactive Signal Chain Technology", where the response of the plug-in is completely dictated by the musical element that it processes. The entire technology is based upon how electronics sound and adapt to real musical content. By creating a chained result of operations that operate based on this sonic response in algorithmic form, a complex response is generated with very low CPU. This balance provides an extremely realistic analog sound without the typical huge code required for a virtual machine-type approach.

VTM-M2 Features:

  • Two operating modes for "low" and "high" calibration.
  • MIDI automated recall and parameter change for all processes.
  • Full DAW session recall.
  • Carefully created, usable Presets.
  • Low CPU Usage for use on all tracks in complex sessions.

In short, I have used most of the tape emulations going but when this is tuned to high freq, and pushed to the limits its sound is on a unique level on its own when the peaks start saturating and the real crisp frizz kicks in and fries the signal, but thats the whole point!!, I hear too many people going on about tape this, analog that, but if you are after a truly vintage sound different to others, and you want that professional sheen then these are as close as you can get to the real thing, plus they are rock solid stable concerning against nebula, Ill be watching these cd soundmaster fx from now on, Ive just bought w735 eq and Nten which you can use as filter banks or the real smooth sound'of a single pro eq band api 500 lunchbox style, its a processor hit alright but thats the point, simply sweeten the sound and bounce, repeat.BLISS. I was thinking UAD but Ive tried liquid mix and VVK and IIR native effects have even come up with better results. Consider for the serious musician to get a proper sound. Groovy 1.
