CDSoundMaster has announced the release of R2R – The Essential Analog Tape Collection, and Tape Booster Plus audio effect plug-ins for Windows.
These new Stand-Alone Audio Plug-Ins feature the best programs from the library in stunning 3D GUI form, replicating the original classic tape machines for use in any PC host DAW that supports VST technology. R2R includes multiple tape media specific to each machine, along with slow and fast tape speeds for maximum flexibility.
R2R, or Reel Too Real, contains a virtual living museum of reel to reel analog tape recorders and includes everything from early tube designs and popular consumer favorites to some of the finest machines ever made.
Tape Booster Plus has been created to compliment R2R by adding authentic harmonic distortion to add the effect of higher gain input levels to your choice of R2R programs.
While R2R recreates the actual frequency spectrum, dynamic range, and harmonic non-linearities of the specific analog tape machines, Tape Booster Plus further increases the perceived volume using realistic tape saturation gain.
