My Review

Is it a cool tape plug in? Yes. Is it the end all closest thing to a real tape machine plug in? No. But dont let that stop you you because this one can get some cool effects the others can’t. Basically I go to this plug in when I want a dirty tape effect or a tape echo. When I want my buses and entire mix to sound like its on tape I reach for my UAD Studer plug in. Get it on sale like I did!

What is cool about the Kramer tape is how you can really drive it hard and get some really cool distorted and lo fi sounds.  All the controls are there from a normal tape plug in including wow and flutter, playback  and record level and inches per second settings. 

What it does have that makes this plug in stand out is the delay time and slap %. This plug in is great for the tape echo alone. All in all a cool “effect” but for my true tape sounds for my mixes I go with something else.
