There really is nothing like the sound of tape, whether you’re after that crunchy saturation, warm colour or the wonky, wobbly wow & flutter you can use TAPE to add some lofi 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! It’s completely free too πŸ˜‰

TAPE is built using native Ableton Live devices; there’s no plugins or MaxForLive involved and no complex algorithms, just plain and simple common sense modelling based on emulating the way real 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, lofi tape sound.
