All of the vibrations of an actual analog tape… and much more :
A few of the commonest high-end tape recorder emulators in the marketplace can typically be too skinny, leaving the query “is that this factor included”? That’s why Kiive Audio’s Tape Face is modeled after some of the distinctive skilled tape recorders ever made, including a welcome dose of analog appeal to digital recordings.
Three Modes: Tasteful, Delicate to Critical :
In I mode, Tape Face supplies an correct emulation of an Irish tape recorder recognized for its pleasingly coloured tone. On this default setting, it delivers a good stronger sound signature than among the cleaner machines made in Switzerland and the US. In mode II, the emulation turns into way more clear when a softer contact is required. And for Lo-Fi lovers, Mode III packs in further grain, saturation, and treble softening for extra excessive analog degradation.
Extra than simply emulation :
Tape Face gives options not discovered on authentic analog tape recorders. It provides further tape speeds for extra frequency curves and head hits.
Wish to push your head much more? Strive the “Low Increase” characteristic to revive misplaced low frequencies. Need extra ribbon shade and compression with out rising achieve? Simply improve the saturation knob.
Would you like actual magic? The “Bias” swap boosts and saturates the low mids whereas holding them underneath management with frequency-dependent tape compression. Tape Face even permits you to add stereo width or see how a lot tape compression is being utilized.
Strive EVERYTHING :
Tape Face sounds nice nearly wherever. To get a refined trace of tape saturation, strive mode II on the combination bus or your entire tracks, at 30 or 15 pixels.
Feed skinny guitars in I mode, then strive flipping the bias swap and operating it in 15 or 7.5 ips mode for even richer sound. Carry parallel drum busses and loops to life by turning on Mode III – and be at liberty to regulate the saturation knob!
Strive any of those approaches on vocals, bass, drums and synths to get the quantity of shade you need.
Emulation of an analog mannequin of a traditional Irish tape recorder.
Processor-friendly oversampling permits it for use on each observe to emulate recording by means of a bodily tape recorder.
(I) – Good for getting that bumpy tape sound with minimal distortion. This setting is greatest for a combination bus or drums with heavy transients that must be tamed.
(II) – Emulates a near-perfectly calibrated tape recorder with silky-smooth highs, bumpy lows and really helpful tape compression on enter. Good for a combination bus or any ending touches.
(III) – Created particularly for LoFi producers. Darkish and grainy tape saturation with sturdy Acquire discount and harmonics when pressed.
Extra options embody:
Bias: Make low-medium daring, grainy and straight whereas holding them properly managed.
Tape pace: Lower the pace to extend the quantity of high-frequency roll-off and head impression frequency.
Meter GR: Visualization of the diploma of compression of the take.
Stereo Width: The unfold of your sound.
Bass Increase: Carry again low frequencies misplaced resulting from saturation.
Saturation: Improve tape compression and harmonic coloration with out disturbing the amplification circuitry.
