Spitfire Audio has launched a new installment of the LABS series of free virtual instruments: Tape Orchestra.

Spitfire Audio LABS Tape Orchestra

Tape Orchestra includes 15 presets of brass, strings, synth, vox humana, and woodwinds.

In January 2020, we selected a range of orchestral and synth recordings and fed them through pre-distressed cassettes and tape loops, via an old-school Tascam Portastudio.

The tapes were crinkled to create distorted textures, evoking a sense of fragility and nostalgia.

The instrument runs in the free Spitfire Audio App, which is available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats for Windows and Mac.
