denise audio releases Bad Tape – a tape inspired effect unit

denise audio has released Bad Tape, described as “a tape harming effect plugin”. Its focus is on creating extreme tape artifacts.

The inspiration for Bad Tape came from denise team member Enrico ‘nrec’ Tiberi: “I was using a lot of my old Akai 4000 DS MK2 reel to reel tape recorder pressing the tape to slow it down as an effect and that made me want a plugin that could control how to break the sound without having to use my fingers each time and without all the cables and fuss that analog hardware inevitably brings”.

Features:

  • Mix: Smoothly mix in different extreme tape artifacts with great precision.
  • Detune (Tape stop): Slow down the tape in real time, as if you would press your finger on the tape reel.
  • Wobble & Shake: Randomly detune the pitch of your track like your tape machine has an inconsistent playback speed.
  • Harm: Introduce failing tape artifacts with subtle bitcrushing.
  • Squeal & Noize: Add old tape machine noises for character and vibe.
  • Color & Speed: Adjust the color and speed of the tape for a unique flavour.
  • Saturate your tracks for that good old vintage tape sound. Warm and smooth character due to hysteresis emulation.
  • Comes with presets for synth, drums, bass and classic tape style effects.
  • Low CPU usage & works offline without dongles or complex licence managers

Bad Tape is currently available for only 14.99 EUR at Plugin Boutique
