ToneBoosters has announced the release of ReelBus 4, an major update of the audio effect plugin that faithfully simulates magnetic tape recording, tape flanger and echo.

Toneboosters ReelBus 4

ReelBus 4 combines tape saturation models from Ferox as well as ReelBus 2 and 3, supports an all-new echo and flanger simulator, a tape stop simulator, and last but not least, a unique ‘Drive-EQ’ which allows to drive the tape simulation in a frequency-dependent manner. Unlike most conventional tape simulator plugins, ReelBus 4 has separate controls for tape saturation, hysteresis, compression and spectral effects, and features accurate wow-and-flutter, tape wear, hiss and asperity simulation.

As with most recent ToneBoosters plugins, ReelBus 4 has a scalable and themeable user interface, supports any sampling rate up to 384 kHz, can process immersive audio formats such as Ambisonics and Dolby Atmos (up to 16 channels; VST3 and AU only), features zipper-free automation and has virtually infinite internal headroom.
