Return to Analog<br /><br />VTAPE is a set of three plugins based on a thorough simulation of the famous sound of analog tape machines.<br /><br />VTAPE Saturator simulates the recording and playback on an analog tape mastering machine.<br /><br />VTAPE Delay combines this sound with a modern, step sequencer-like tapped delay engine which leads the tradition of the tape echo machines into the 21st century.<br /><br />VTAPE Flanger simulates the legendary ???*NsTape flanging???*N? effect which can be achieved through the playback of two tape machines running at slightly different speed.<br />*<br />Why and How ?<br />*<br />Why bothering about going back to analogue tape recording knowing that todays digital audio recording is undoubtly more precise in reproducing the original sound ?<br /><br />Perhaps you already guessed the answer: it?*O*s the imperfection and the technical deficiencies which can add something wonderful to the sound if properly used.<br /><br />Most emulations of the `tape sound?*O* focus on the saturation characteristic alone and underestimate the effect of a subtle amount of `flutter?*O* - high frequency fluctuations of the tape speed. This adds something which is probably the most important part of the special sound: The harmonic lines are "widened" by the effect of frequency modulation due to flutter which causes a 'thickening' of the audio signal contributing to the fat sound of analog, compared to the more accurate, but thin sound of digital. This effect called `Modulation noise?*O* makes it easier to mix tracks together by removing the static character especially of electric/electronic sounds. It?*O*s interesting to know that many natural instruments have a "built-in" flutter effect which strongly contributes to their sound.<br /><br />The distortion and compression effects due to the saturation characteristic of magnetic recording depend on the input signal level. With normal recording levels the distortion is around 1% which is away from sounding really distorted but quite audible and adds a pleasant color to the sound. Higher values should only be used as special effect on some suitable tracks dependant on the style of music you?*O*re after.<br />The saturation is also responsible for the `instant compression?*O* effect which causes transient signals to be reduced in level. In contrast to a dedicated compressor this one is working with instant attack/release and therefore avoiding the typical pumping artefacts.
