Beat Maganzine has announced that the Tape Echo plugin by IK Multimedia is included for free with the latest issue of its magazine.

With Tape Echo, IK Multimedia has created a virtual monument to the legendary Maestro Echoplex EP-3 from 1969. It recreates the distinctive vintage sound of the tape echo device with all its peculiarities in detail, without any tape tangle and with delay times that can be synced to the DAW tempo. This makes the plug-in a real secret weapon for giving guitars, synths, electric pianos and even drums and vocals a striking retro touch!

Besides the T-RackS series plugin which retails at $79.99 USD ex. taxes, Beat Magazine features 100 pages of reviews, workshops, tutorials, interviews and scene buzz for producers as well as 12 GB of sound and software.

Besides Tape Echo, the current Beat issue contains the virtual modular system Cherry Audio Voltage Modular Beat, which is effectively the Nucleus edition with 14 modules added on top. Also contained are three sound banks for the free Zampler//RX workstation: Ultimate Drums, Analog Warrior and Brute Factor, which are – according to Beat mag – perfect for harder styles such as EBM, Industrial and Hardcore Techno. Lastly, a 4.4 GB sample collection features sounds for Cinematic, Pop & Trap from Loopmasters, Industrial Strength and TriSamples.

Issue 12/2020 is available for 5.49 Euro as single PDF issue or as a subscription. Yearly subscribers at Plugins-Samples get access to 90+ back issues of Beat Magazine, including all the software highlights (while stocks last).
