Slate Digital Virtual Tape Machines

For recording studios – digital technology such as amps, compressors, and recording devices have changed the amount of work necessary to create professional songs and albums.  A mixing studio needs little more than a mixing board, microphones, and a computer with the correct software.  In fact, travelling musicians can get away with small digital recording device like the Roland R-05 and still produce quality sound.

However, there are still some folks that want authentic sound – and as strange as this sounds, it’s even more expensive to get things done this way.  Slate Digital has actually been working on an emulated Tape Recorder that runs on a digital machine (computer) and gives you different varieties of “tape” to play with.  No need to shell out for expensive gear this time.
