Digidesign is shipping Reel Tape Suite ($495), a set of analog tape emulation plug-ins that recreate the vintage sound of analog tape recordings and tape effects in digital recordings or live audio. Operating as an AudioSuite, TDM, and RTAS plug-in, Reel Tape Suite is meant for Pro Tools, Avid, and Venue systems.
Reel Tape Suite features three plug-ins: Reel Tape Saturation, Reel Tape Delay, and Reel Tape Flanger. Reel Tape Saturation, which will also be offered apart from the suite, simulates analog tape saturation effects by modeling analog tape machine and tape formulation characteristics. Reel Tape Delay simulates classic tape echo effects while providing control over regenerating echoes. Reel Tape Flanger simulates tape machine flanging effects.
A standalone version ($295) of the Reel Tape Saturation plug-in is available from the DigiStore as a download.
