Numerical Audio released RE-1 Tape Delay, a new virtual tape machine that I nearly spilled the beans on last week! I was pretty excited for this one as soon as I heard about it. You get the usual fun stuff like tape-based echo and chorus, but it also lets you play around with it like a performance effect.
There’s sampling, looping, overdubbing just like a real tape recorder! There are even some built-in effects to help you design the resulting sounds. RE-1 arrives with AUv3, Inter-App Audio, Audiobus, Ableton Link, and MIDI; for both control and tempo.
