Voxengo has released an updated version of its CRTIV Tape Bus, a tape saturation plugin for Windows and Mac.

Voxengo CRTIV Tape Bus feat

Version 1.1 improves on the initial release with a few improvements and fixes to the plugin that brings the sound of reel-to-reel tape.

CRTIV Tape Bus plug-in recreates characteristic elements of the reel-to-reel tape sound. This includes saturation, modulation noise and smearing effects which are known for the “analog” feel they bring to audio recordings.

This plug-in also applies a selected impulse response taken by us from the existing tape machines.

Changes in CRTIV Tape Bus v1.1

  • Fixed “Flutter” noise loudness in oversampling modes.
  • Updated the user guide to include more details on the impulses.
  • Moved built-in low-frequency roll-off below 20 Hz.
  • Added “Tape 4” impulse.
  • Changed signal chain to apply smoothing/flutter to impulse’s sound.
  • Added support for mouse backward/forward buttons to scroll impulses.

CRTIV Tape Bus is available for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3/AU/AAX), priced at $34.95 USD. A free demo version can be downloaded freely at the Voxengo website.

The CRTIV Tape Bus plugin is also included in Voxengo’s Premium Membership, which includes all Voxengo plugins at a deep discount.
