VirSyn VTAPE brings the analog tape sound to Mac and PC

Saturator and Delay plug-ins form retro-inspired bundle


VirSyn is the latest company to release software that emulates the much sought after sound of analog tape. The new VTAPE bundle features two plug-ins: Saturator and Delay.

VTAPE Saturator is designed to recreate the sound of a vintage analog tape mastering machine. Features include tape saturation and compression, tape hiss, wow and flutter and EQ. Zero-latency operation is promised, and the simple single-page interface should enable easy operation.

VTAPE Delay is based on VTAPE Saturator but adds a step-sequencer style delay pattern input. The delay can be tempo-synced (with up to 32 taps) and you'll also find a stereo rotation effect and a loop filter. Again, there's zero-latency operation and an easy-to-use single-page interface.

VTAPE is available now for Mac and PC and will run in your VST, AudioUnits or RTAS host. An introductory offer means that it can be yours for €99 until November 30 and it'll be priced at €169 thereafter.
