MIA Laboratories has announced the release of its new audio plugin 413 Tape Saturator, an effect that offers 3 different types of analog tape, as well as 3 different types of distortion.

MIA 413 Tape Saturator

The 413 reproduces the non-linear characteristics that would result when over-driving analog tape, as magnetic saturation occurs with increasing amplitude of the ‘recorded’ signal…

For the saturation process, the signal gets dynamically changed, especially high frequency information, in response to its amplitude. The resulting effect simulates the saturation of analog tape, in a controllable environment which can be adjusted according to your preference.

The user can choose among 3 different types of Analog Tape, each corresponding to the noise and saturation characteristics of 3 different well known tape brands.

3 distortion types are also available, enabling the user to produce the harmonic content/distortion one would get by over-driving certain Tube or Transistor circuits.

413 Tape Saturator features

  • Advanced Tape Saturation algorithm.
  • Tube, Transistor and Soft Clipping Distortion.
  • Real tape-hiss.
  • ‘IEC on NAB’ playback equalization mode.

Available in VST3, AU and AAX formats, the plugin is on sale for the intro price of 49 USD/EUR through July 12th, 2020 (regular 89 USD/EUR).
