T-RackS Tape Machine Collection

The allure of tape machines is easy to understand – that iconic character is part of the sonic signature of so many of the greatest songs ever recorded.
The T-RackS Tape Machine Collection gives you the true character of 4 iconic analog tape machines, together in one bundle.

Using a careful mix of convolution and physical modeling, the Tape Machine Collection re-creates the complex interplay of machine, tape, and audio to capture even the smallest detail of each machine. Get the classic sounds of the Ampex 440, Studer A80, Revox PR99, MCI JH24 - all "in the box"!

Add warmth and character, low-end weight, ear-pleasing high end and glue your tracks together. The T-RackS Tape Machine collection offers a combination of iconic sound with real-world workflow to make creating classic-sounding recordings faster and easier than ever.

4 pieces of history

Tape Machine 440
The Ampex 440B series dates from the late 1960’s and delivers an unmistakably soulful color that made this professional and historic mixing and mastering machine a legend. This superb blend of art and technology has the power to turn your mixes into finished tracks.

Tape Machine 80
The legendary Studer A80 Mk II, in its various revisions, is an essential part of countless influential records. Engineered and manufactured in Switzerland from 1970 to 1988, it became the de facto standard for professional high-end multi-tracking. The A80’s sonic signature is a perfect blend between transparency and subtle harmonic enhancement.

Tape Machine 99
The Revox PR99 Mk II is a stereo professional recorder produced by Studer in the 1980s. Engineered around a hybrid design that combines the best of discrete and op-amp topologies, this model offers a very smooth frequency response, especially on bass, with almost no-trace of the typical “head bump” phenomenon. A standard for broadcast and classical music, this machine was appreciated by audiophiles for its exceptional sonic quality.

Tape Machine 24
A model of the MCI JH24. First produced in 1980, the JH24 was a staple in US studios during the 1980s. This completely transformerless, high performance op-amp-based design delivers a pristine, phase coherent and remarkably true to the source audio performance. This results in a moderate and elegant polish to your music.

thanks. i've heard internal sampling is 384khz so the cpu hit is lethal. looking forward , i hope we can try this before buy . gearslutz ppl say quality/sound wise this is up there with uad's ampex and stuff. cant wait mr. R2R
  Resident 26.03.2014 394
Hope it sounds as good as it looks. Look forward to testing this out.
  Resident 21.06.2011 4 414
Damn. Normally, you can just download the latest update from IK's site (if you have an account) and, if you already have a serial entered for that version, it installs and is already authorized. Not so with the Tape Machines. Everything else is authorized for v5.2.1 (latest version) except for those. We just need an updated key gen.

Its available on torrent but as people have already said, it needs a new keygen to authorize the Tape Machine part of it.

Atleast we know R2R (or another) can easily access it to create a new keygen, as it there and waiting on torrent to get.
  Resident 21.06.2011 4 414
Like I said, you don't even need to torrent it -- if you already have a licensed version (legit or otherwise) and an account, you can download the latest version from IK and install it over your previous version (from v5.1.1 on the Mac, in my case). Everything else but the Tape Machines just gets updated and can be used without any hassle. The Tape Machines are also there, but can't be used without a specific Custom Shop authorization code, rather like the DImebag stuff in Amplitube 4. So close ...!

From what I understand, this uses convolution modeling, similar to Acustica Audio plugins. Some people are saying they like this better than Taupe, Acustica's tape plugin.

Physical modelling + convolution methods of emulations. ALL Gearslutz guys say these are the best tape machines emulations ever.
The Worst 1

Maybe next year
Come here just to try the software and buy it afterwards.
If I don't like the software I will just DELETE it.

Tried one instance on demo mode with Studio One: hot as hell on CPU.
Worst than Diva loaded with a very consuming preset in "Divine" mode.
C'est mon avis et je le partage.
  Member 22.07.2016 10
Pc specs?
  Member 8.10.2018 2 67
Specs doesn't matter at all.
If it use 2% on a last gen 8 core, Diva will use a bit less (1,5%).
If it use 99% on a 2012 Sandy Bridge Pentium® 987, Diva will use a bit less (98,5%), because ratio will remain the same.
So, if your computer is in between, check the resources needed by Diva, then add +/- 0,5% and you will be very close to the resources needed by those plugins.
C'est mon avis et je le partage.

It kills my CPU too. Maybe it's because the nature of convolution.

  Resident 18.09.2013 3 76
tried it out. crashed my DAW unfortunately. Doesn't mean it won't work for others. thanks anyway!
  Member 8.08.2017 81
Hey mono just wondering if you have keygen for win or mac for tape collection? thanks again
  Member 8.10.2018 2 67
^^ It works perfectly.
C'est mon avis et je le partage.
  Moderator 21.01.2012 1110 10477
Mono unfortunately this cannot be posted here, as it is an R2R repack... Sorry.
  Releaser 12.07.2014 23 1547
I don't think the patches are that unlocked just the Tape Machine Collection
but there was a R2R keygen added
with the setup on the torrent sorry about that.

There's a working keygen for this?
  Resident 25.01.2012 2229
I don't think there is a working keygen yet for tape. At least not shared torrent or otherwise.
  Member 7.06.2019 1
I'm truly excited for this one. If anyone has the new keygen for Win/Mac, please PM me!
