Plugin Boutique has announced an exclusive sale on Reels by AudioThing, a tape emulation plugin with built-in echo section and tape start and tape stop effect.

Reels is based on a vintage Japanese reel to reel, ironically marked as High Fidelity, found in a distressed state at a local flea market. Most of these consumer tape recorders, also due to their age, produce has a very rough Lo-Fi analog sound.

During recording or playback, the motor noise somehow bleeds in, along with the usual tape hiss, limiting the actual bandwidth available on the tape.

  • Echo Section.
  • 3 Tape types.
  • Hiss and Motor noise with Envelope.
  • 50 Presets.
  • Resizable Window.
  • Preset system with randomizer.

Available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats, Reels is on sale for $35 USD until July 30th, 2023.
