Elphnt has released TAPE which they describe as an Analog Tape Ableton Live Rack. They tell us that TAPE is built using native Ableton Live devices; there's no 3rd party plugins or MaxForLive involved and no complex algorithms, just plain and simple common sense modelling based on emulating the way tape works. A spokesperson had this to say...

"There really is nothing like the sound of tape, whether you're after that crunchy saturation, warm colour or the wonky, wobbly wow & flutter you can use TAPE to add some vintage flavour to your productions.

Now I'll be the first to admit, TAPE is by no means the best tape emulation out there - there are some amazing plugins that emulate the sounds of analog tape with amazing accuracy using all sorts of algorithms and component and frequency response modelling to copy the sound of tape in a very detailed way. However, there are much more general characteristics of tape that don't require detail circuit modelling to achieve; TAPE cleverly copies these characteristics to create a tape sound that is very generic but surprisingly authentic."
