With 4 custom-tailored effect plugins inspired by the charactered sounds of tape and tape-based effects, Tape Suite redefines the cutting-edge of analog tape modeling. Delay, Flanger, Chorus, and Color effects each provide deeply-tweakable palettes of sound, alive with the character of real analog tape.

Leveraging an advanced, fully-parametric physical model, Tape Suite gives you complete freedom to explore the sonic qualities of magnetic tape and tape transport, from pristine studio reel-to-reel machines to worn out cassette recorders, and all the sweet spots in-between, with the convenience and reliability of a modern plugin.


Analog Realism
Tape Suite began with the analysis of numerous hardware analog tape systems. Through meticulous study and experimentation, we developed our own innovative and physically-based tape model, providing a fully-parametric simulation with incredibly realistic sound, natural musicality, and abundant creative control.

Advanced Physical Modeling
Each of the effects in Tape Suite is built on top of the same exacting physical model, providing deep yet intuitive control over the analog simulation through 4 main sections; Tape Simulation, Compander, Playback Filtering, and Modulation.

Tape Effect Plugins

Tape Suite includes 4 discrete plugins, each building on a shared core, then extending it further with unique effect designs to provide exceptional hardware realism for a variety of use-cases, each with modern digital control and reliability.

Analog tape flanger featuring through-zero flanging and control in manual or LFO modes (with possible sync to host), for a velvety, organic sound.

Analog tape delay featuring 4 heads with individual pan which can be synced to host tempo with snap-to-grid in eights or triplets, a ping-pong mode with global stereo spread, and selectable feedback from any of the playback heads for creative delay possibilities.

Analog tape color delivers the natural characteristics of tape, including an additional texture processor and convolver with impulse responses from a number of vintage devices. Delivers an impressive range of natural and supernatural sounds.

Analog tape chorus providing up to 8 voices with adjustable stereo spread, resulting in buttery analog warmth and subtle to extreme effects.

Performance Optimized
Tape Suite effects are optimized to provide outstanding performance, delivering pristine sound quality and authentic hardware response across the entire parameter range. Condensed complexity and expertly crafted simulations allow users to enjoy accurate real-time analog sound with the freedom of mind to explore and create.

Vintage Inspiration, Modern Features
With a high-degree of analog realism, Tape Suite offers numerous advantages over its hardware counterparts, including features such as compensated drive, feedback compensation, low-latency mode, tempo sync, grid-snapping, delay multiplication, and effect visualizations, combining to give you an innovative, modern effect suite that's as easy to use as it is powerful.

Analog Tape, Perfected

Enjoy the sound of analog tape like you've always wanted; powerful, portable, rich with detail, infinitely customizable, and effortlessly reliable - and unlock new worlds of analog-inspired inspiration and creativity, with Tape Suite.
