Hear What TAPE Sounds Like

The TAPE Rack

10 smart Macro controls make it make it super simple to dial in exactly the tape character you’d like.

The Updated TAPE Rack

An Updated TAPE

There is a brand new, updated version of TAPE that takes advantage of new features in Ableton Live 11 to bring you a better sounding, even tapier TAPE that now also works with Live Intro as well as Standard and Suite! 🙌

This new version requires at least Ableton Live 11.1, but the old version of TAPE is still included with the download if you’re using an older version of Live.

The Extra Bits

TAPE is an Ableton Live Effect Rack made using only built-in Ableton devices. It is not a VST plugin and doesn't use Max For Live. You can learn more about Instrument, Drum and Effect Racks in the official Ableton documentation.
