They do - also VST Apex Plugin / Tape Booster which are very nice indeed ....this combo brought me a lot of joy & is uncannily close to the sonics / vibe of what I remember from working with tape... the ATR 102 in Apex is a standout, it captures the tone/vibe really well of the hardware unit IMO..its surreal being able to use ATR-102 in a multitrack kind of mode in the DAW as opposed to a mixdown 2 track machine.... I believe CDS used one of the newer tape formulas in making the libraries & VST's (?)...

I would definitely be very interested whatever Tim P comes out with in the pro tape realm too - especially that AMPEX within arm's reach which I would snap up immediately, if that ever happens :-)
iNDEED!!!

While we're waiting for Tim's new tape I gave Michael's 440B a spin at 15ips, man is that a sweet formula. Great recommendation guys!

we just wrapped tracking sessions on a new project i produced. we recorded to 2-inch multitrack tape, but i'll be mixing in the box. can't wait to use nebula/aqua, but i did love tracking to tape. it's funny because with nebula, i don't feel like i'll be losing anything during post-prod. :mrgreen:
