I like this plugin. It did it's part of shaping the sound of my latest CD. Tapebus is not the obvious thing everybody needs. But it's one of those small specialties if applied correctly it can't be exchanged with anything else I own or know.
I like the sound of this plugin a lot. This plugin is not really self explanatory. In fact it's not easy to operate. An easy mode would be agood thing for the new user. But the supplied presets do show some range of the things that are possible with it so that the learning curve isn't too high.
The GUI is OK.
The documentation is sufficient.
Voxengos customer support is really good, a very competent developer willing to help his customers.
Value for the money: Top! Concidering that there are several other really cool sounding plugins in the AnalogFlux bundle the price is more than fair.
Well, there are barely any plugins that do this "tape" job or acually claim to do so. I own Steinbergs Magneto and was never really happy with it. So it's no surprise that this one here is far better. But even set aside that all other "tape" plugins I tried are not nearly as good sounding to my ears as AnalogFlux Tapebus it gives me some good vintage I-want-it-that-way feeling (trademark bla) so that I used it on lots of single instrument tracks and most mastering inserts for my latest CD.
Talking about apples and oranges: I own and like VintageWarmer and these two plugins are very different and both have their side by side use in my setup. ;-)
