AlexB: R42 - Rupert 42 Tape FX (it replaces older MWT)

Post by AlexB » Tue Jul 11, 2017 4:02 pm

Hello,

the Rupert 42 Tape FX library released !!!

True Tape Emulation

The R42 provides a extraordinary simulation of true tape sound through the inclusion of genuine tape drive circuitry. This emulation circuit provides the nostalgic tone rounding and compression usually only achieved by the use of actual tape. This typically offsets the harshness often found in digital recordings. The unit has been modified by enhancing in the DC and audio path with top grade audio components.

. High Quality programs with full dynamics and harmonic content
. Special light edition "le" programs (CPU friendly)
. Full emulation by useing two instance preset: Magnetic Head + Line Amp.
. Magnetic Head preset with full controls: Saturation, Tape speed, Drive.
. Three Line Amp (Stock, Classic, Vintage) with full controls: GDrive, Drive.
. Light combo preset of full emulation with Saturation and Tape speed controls.
. Continuous Tape speed control from 7.5 to 15ips allows total FX creativity.
. Drive control allows to set the sound from clean to fat.
. Special AlexB skin.
. No C.P. !

Please, check the website and download the user manual and try the Demo, it has the same audio quality and performance of the commercial release but with some restrictions.

If you have the old MWT you can update at this last release with only 8,00EUR by sending an email request.

Alex,
in the manual
"To emulate the full characteristics of the hardware you must use two instance: “Magnetic Head” + “Line Amp”."

Should it be placed in that order; Head-Line?

I was reading about the hardware unit, and it seems that there are a lot of controls at the user's disposal (such as 300Hz bulge, high frequency ringing, low harmonic distortion levels, etc.). Are these controls available in the sampled Nebula programs, or is it just simple gain and drive levels?

Started mixing with this yesterday & love what can be achieved from tweaking the head adjustments. This is my favorite out the 4 (so far in testing)

Hi Alex

Does your skin work for N4?

Im thinking I might have to get an N3 so I can use the other programs and their skins?

I have maximum respect for Alex's work but his standard level of answering to what people ask is sometimes frustrant, I think he would get much more sells if he were more active, a lot of people ask about things related to his releases and often they never got response, and some questions are very interesting. This thing has sometimes in the past stopped me to buy some libraries because I never got the info I needed to know if these libs fitted to my purposes.
In this case I would like to know about some questions posted here, i.e. the different amps or the rest of the real gear features
