Just received an email for an audio plugin that "simulates analog tape" for digital recording and producing.
VirSyn is the Germany-based software company that makes it.
Here are a few of its features:
- Realistic tape emulation
- Tape saturation / compression
- Tape hiss
- Wow & Flutter
- Aliasing free distortion
25 years after CDs were introduced to the market as a "noise free" sound system, there is a sizeable industry devoted to adding high quality realistic noise to digital sound. There's a moral in here somewhere.
