Slate Digital Virtual Tape Machines


Virtual Tape Machines

Digital recording is now the standard for professional music production these days, however, many engineers and musicians still wish for the days of analogue recording.

 

And they do for good reason, Analog Tape Machines have an incredible sound.

 

Big, warm, deep, rich, and exciting are just some of the terms used to describe what recording onto a piece of magnetic tape sounds like. To those that know, tape is simply more musical. Slate Digital modelled two of the most famous tape machines in audio and provided them both along with options like bias, tape speed, tape type, and more in Virtual Tape Machines.

 

World-Class Tape Machines for Your DAW

Virtual Tape Machines (VTM) has been praised by pro engineers for its extreme authenticity, every aspect of tape is carefully reproduced. This authenticity is due to years of intense study from Slate Digital CTO Fabrice Gabriel. Using VTM on your tracks and mixes will make your mixes warmer, smoother, punchier, and more analogue.

 

Choose Your Favourite Machines & Tape Stock

The VTM emulates both a 16-track 2-inch tape machine and a 1/2-inch stereo mastering deck. Not only that but you can also choose between the two most popular tape formulations. Different formulations have different properties and headroom, this will ultimately give you different sonic results.

 

Control Your Speed

Virtual Tape Machines accurately replicates the behaviour of both common tape speeds of 15 and 30 IPS. Engineers who use tape sometimes choose which speed to use based upon the material they’re recording, this is because the bass response can differ a great deal between the two speeds. You can refine the bass response further using the bass alignment slider in the Settings module.
