Analog Tape Plugin for macOS

Duy DaD Tape was the first ever digital simulator of the analog tape sound for digital workstations.

Duy DaD Tape offers the warming analog tape sound, within the digital domain. The plugin provides many different features that allow an excellent control over your sound. Such control is impossible to achieve with conventional physical tape recorders.

Its modelling technology provides four of most representative tape recorders on the market: an old vintage machine with valve circuitry, a transistor based machine of the late 60's, an operational-amplifier based machine of the 70’s and a last generation machine.

This product boasts advanced simulation of the three most common noise reduction systems, plus a proprietary noiseless-tape mode. The switchable tape speed operation (7 1/2 ips – 15 ips – 30 ips) allows maximum control and even permits unusual combinations of tape recorders and speeds. The user is able to adjust in an intuitive interface, the operating level, independent input and output, sliders and meters.
