T tape Released!!! updated 05/11/15

Post by Tim Petherick » Thu Aug 13, 2015 12:07 am

T Tape is based on a classic 1985 2 track Tape machine from Switzerland, sampled using sm468 tape. Known to for it’s clean sound and stability. One of the best tape machines from the 80’s

updated 05/11/15

It features-

7.5ips and 15ips tone
input(for different according tones, increasing input will darken tape sound)
Print-through knob, which is a post echo, also can be pushed to unrealistic levels creating a effect
Drive
Minimized artifact tape sampling, no micro echo’s are audible from wow and flutter, this insures ultimate tightness.
5k harmonics
All the above are in one preset

Also-
no print through preset for ultra low cpu use
Hiss wav files to be used if desired on a seperate track
3 JPN skins
comes in 4 sample rates 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96

and-

Includes a unique bonus saturation v1 preset.

This can be used subtly compress/limit signal. Of course it can be pushed to extremes. Recommended for mono sources.

Ips and input will be in one preset equalling I think 14 settings, then timed by a varible slider controlling a cool extra feature.

Then a saturation will be in a separate preset. A preview of the skin is on my website.

If anyone would ever do a library with the old Ampex/Quantegy 456 formula I'd be thrilled, I miss that tape (and the smell of it too) - to me Ampex 456 @ 15ips was the 'sound of rock n roll'... (at least during certain eras) .. the newer boutique tape formulas of some which are apparently based on Ampex 456 don't seem to capture the vibe of it, also IMO missing the graininess / hiss & 'rocks' (aka: modulation noise)..

A 16 track Ampex MM1100 or MM1200??

GREAT sounding machines & at 16trk, ultimate for drums...

Please sample it !!! :-0

If you'd thread it up with NOS Ampex 456 I'd trade a suitcase full of gold bars for that library! :-)
