VirSyn has released VTAPE, a set of two plugins based on a thorough simulation of the famous sound of analog tape machines.

VTAPE Saturator simulates the recording and playback on an analog tape mastering machine.

  • Realistic tape emulation
  • Tape saturation / compression
  • Tape hiss
  • Wow & Flutter
  • Equalizer
  • Aliasing free distortion

VTAPE Delay combines this sound with a modern, step sequencer-like tapped delay engine which leads the tradition of the tape echo machines into the 21st century.

  • Based on VTAPE Saturator
  • Unique step-sequencer style delay pattern input
  • Modern tempo-synced delay with up to 32 taps
  • Stereo rotation effect
  • Tap Pad for tempo tapping
  • Loop filter Lo/Mid/High
  • All parameters tweakable in realtime without clicks

Both plug-ins have a zero latency operation and a one page only user interface.

VTAPE is available for Mac and Windows (VST/AU/RTAS).

From now till November 30th, 2007 you can buy VTAPE for the introductory price of 99 EUR (normal price is 169 EUR). A new FX Collection containing VTAPE and the highly acclaimed reverb plugin REFLECT is available for 229 EUR.
