I’m not one to push audio plugins on my profiles often. Yesterday, I found one that really changed my final sound in such a nice way. It took the sharpness of my digital sound and added a very subtle depth (as I had set it to do just that). Sharp clicks and pops now have the added benefit of being rounded off - not clipped, but curved.
I love the sound of tape, especially the higher-quality sound of reel-to-reel. I found the CHOW Tape Model plugin on GitHub, and I feel it may become a permanent addition to any final mix of mine. For Windows/Mac
