Hear What TAPE Sounds Like

More About TAPE

There really is nothing like the sound of tape, whether youโ€™re after that crunchy saturation, warm colour or the wonky, wobbly wow & flutter you can use TAPE to add some vintage flavour to your productions.

TAPE is not designed to be a technically accurate emulation of analog tape, but rather to give you the feeling you get from using real tape in a simple and easy to use Ableton Live FX Rack, and it sounds great!

P.S: Its completely free too ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

TAPE is built using native Ableton Live devices; thereโ€™s no plugins or MaxForLive involved and no complex algorithms, just plain and simple common sense modelling based on emulating the way tape works. Each Macro gives you control over a certain characteristic of tape and you can dial in just one effect or crank up the whole lot to get that wonky, lo-fi tape sound.

Pay What You Want

TAPE is released as a Pay-What-You-Want pack. This means that you can download it completely for free, but if you'd like to pay a bit for the pack its always appreciated! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป 

I've had so much fun using TAPE myself that I wanted to make sure anyone could use it, no matter your budget. Still, a lot of time and resources have gone into making TAPE so if you can afford to drop a little in with your download I really appreciate it!

I'd recommend $5 as a fair amount ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป
