Features

Speed up

Each tape can read out with slow, normal, or fast speed. The slow speed will read slower through your signal and play back the audio an octave lower. The fast speed will read out with a higher rate and play back the audio an octave higher.

Add Character

Each tape head has an age dial which allows you to set how long the virtual tape has been in use for. When it is set to 0%, the tape is of pristine quality and will have no pitch fluctuation. When the values are higher, more dropouts plus warble will happen and artifacts will be added to the signal character.

Delicious Textures

The freeze control allows you to create a very interesting looping texture from your input signal. The best thing about it: you can change the tape speed, age, brightness, and also reverse the tape even when the tape is frozen. This means that you can freeze your signal at any point in time and create amazing textures.

Characterful and unique effect to spice up any sound

Playtime is a magical, unique plugin that allows you to literally play with time.

We took our virtual tape circuits and used them in a way that would be quite complex to re-create on an analog device.

The result is a very characterful and unique effect that you can use to pitch, reverse, or add delays and space to your audio.

This plugin is only one
of our growing LoFi Series

This series allows you to combine a variety of LoFi characteristics,
which add life and texture to your productions.

Look out for our upcoming LoFi Series products, we have a whole lineup
of spices that will be ready for you soon - blend to your own taste!
