Spitfire Audio has announced the release of a new library of transformative tape-drenched textures by Tyler Gilmore aka BlankFor.ms, a Brooklyn-based artist who makes richly textured, emotive ambient music using his rare collection of degraded tapes, analog synthesizers and an old spinet piano.

Tape Synths contains everything from woozy, dusty lo-fi atmospheres to rich, multi-tonal synth textures that haunt and glisten.

Immerse yourself in the tape-drenched world of renowned Brooklyn-based artist Blankfor.ms with this vast, inspiring collection of mind bending, dreamlike sounds and unpredictable, multi-layered organic textures — dripping with vintage analog warmth and nostalgia.

A living, breathing machine of complex sonic metamorphosis spanning multiple genres, Tape Synths pushes the tone-shaping magic of tape to new limits, harnessing the artist’s enviable collection of classic and unique tape machines, pedals and unusual gear coupled with bespoke experimental processing techniques to create a kaleidoscopic range of multidimensional textures that change and grow beneath your fingertips.
