Feb 23, 2018: Voxengo is happy to release CRTIV Tape Bus version 1.1, tape saturation plug-in for professional music production applications, available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST and VST3 plug-in formats (including native 64-bit support), for Mac OS X (v10.7 and later), and Windows computers.

Version 1.1 update includes the following changes:

  • Fixed "Flutter" noise loudness in oversampling modes.
  • Updated the user guide to include more details on the impulses.
  • Moved built-in low-frequency roll-off below 20 Hz.

  • Added support for mouse backward/forward buttons to scroll impulses.

CRTIV Tape Bus plug-in recreates characteristic elements of the reel-to-reel tape sound.  This includes saturation, modulation noise and smearing effects which are known for the “analog” feel they bring to audio recordings.  This plug-in also applies a selected impulse response taken by us from the existing tape machines.

CRTIV Tape Bus features:

  • Saturation controls
  • Tape medium controls
  • Preset manager
  • Undo/redo history
  • A/B comparisons
  • Contextual hint messages
  • All sample rates support
  • 1 ms compensated processing latency
