I wished I could carry my tape recorder everywhere, so I made Max for Live devices for this.
Tapes is a set of two simple audio processing tools for Ableton Live that simulate the nonlinearities of tape machines creating a tape-like sound that adds character and depth to any audio source
Tapehead works in-line and is designed to recreate the dub effect of parallel mixing with a tape machine. It features a moving tape head that simulates the process of recording to and playing back from tape, allowing you to easily incorporate a tape feeling to the mix.
Tapeloop is based is designed to recreate the Varispeed effect, which was a common technique used to manipulate the pitch and speed of recordings. The device loops a sample and allows you to easily adjust the speed and pitch of your audio.
The two devices features a built-in FIR filter, which uses impulse responses recorded from actual tape machines to add an authentic analog-like feel to your recordings.
