AudioThing has released version 1.1 of Reels, a tape emulation plugin with built-in echo section and tape-stop effect.

Reels brings a rough retro analog sound to your mixes.

Based on an old Japanese portable tape recorder with a very distinct Lo-Fi analog sound, Reels emulates all the imperfections of consumer reel-to-reel recorders.

We have modeled three different 1/4” tape frequency responses and saturations, along with all the analog imperfections of tape recording / playback.

Changes in Reels v1.1

  • Added: Option to remove the Doppler effect when enabling the Echo section.
  • Added: Parameter Locks.
  • Fixed: Channel Configuration issues on some Hosts.
  • Fixed: Minor graphic issues.

Reels (VST/VST3/AU/AAX) is currently on sale at a 30% discount as part of an Anniversary Sale.
