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.
