virtual tape machines

Slate Digital launches Virtual Tape Machines, an analog tape emulation effect for both Windows and OS X.

"Big, fat, warm, deep, rich, and exciting are just some of the terms used to describe what recording onto a piece of magnetic tape sounds like. Most of all, tape is more musical.

To capture the sound of tape is to capture a living, breathing sound that dynamically reacts to the music going on to it"
