“TB ReelBus is an analog tape recording simulator that aims at accurate simulation of all properties related to tape, including its frequency and level dependent saturation, inter-modulation effects, bias dependencies, tape hiss, asperity noise, wow and flutter, and clipping of electronic circuitry. It is especially suitable for bus processing (including the master bus) to subtly sweeten and enhance the sound.
TB ReelBus currently contains 7 preset recorder simulations, which can be adjusted individually by offsetting the tape hiss, asperity noise, amount of spectrum and saturation processing, and alike.”

recue.net released a nice tutorial how to add some analog tape distortion/saturation to your recordings.
the video is quite nice :)
it reminds me on my first experiments with a distortion amp. maybe i should recreate it and do some simillar tutorials…
Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. Don’t know if this is one of them, but here is one way to add some color to digital audio if you happen to have a tape deck lying around.
