Acustica Audio is pleased to announce the release of Taupe - an analog tape emulation plugin - based on the latest incarnation of the company's CORE 13 technology, which is the only engine capable of fully capturing the variable dynamic response of real analog tape machines, from the preamp section to the sought-after tape compression and harmonic saturation effect derived from driving the input stage.
Taupe gives the user access to the sound of 21 meticulously sampled machines from the late 50s up to the early 90s, the EQ section of 3 iconic American consoles from the 70s and 80s and 2 switchable compressors, all available as standalone modules too.
The MIX control is something different from the dry/wet knob found on most plugins. It allows the user to adjust the desired amount of ‘tape coloration’ - from 0 (preamp input signal) to 100% (tape signal) effectively blending the tonal characteristics of the machine's circuitry with or without the tape component, for enhanced creative effects.
Taupe responds to input level variations, just like its analog counterparts. This allows the user to reach for subtle to more obvious levels of tape compression and harmonic saturation when driving the input stage hot. The ECONO function disables the compression component of the tape, saving CPU resources for other effects.
Taupe is available on Acustica Audio's web store at a special Black Friday intro price of €161,85 (35% OFF the final retail price of €249)
