On my latest studio project, I decided to put ReelTape through its paces. This is by far one of the best ways to get that fullness from your drum tracks. ReelTape sounds amazing on your guitar tracks too. It can really smooth out the "snap" that you get out of a nylon stringed guitar and fill up the tone of the body. I love this plug-in - it's pure magic!!!
Great ADT - Just what I was looking for.
I have only used it minimally so I can't review other than the ADT which was pretty close to the real thing. Ah if I only had Lennon's voice! It is certainly better than using delay and faster than trying to sing the doubles.
Better Than the Reel Thing
The Reel Tape plug-ins sound very good on the tracks I tried them on; bass, drums, guitar and vocals.Â_ They seem more 'tape like' than other plug-ins Iâ€™ve tried.Â_ Tape saturation is a nice gentle compression plug when used sparingly or it can be pushed into distortion for a little more crunch or full out tape distortion. The flange and echo simulations are convincing and the algorithms used help to reduce some of the digital edge. There is also a tape hiss knob if you so desire to use it. Many of the controls, with the exception of the DRIVE, OUTPUT and HISS knobs, are quite subtle and take a careful listen when using them.
Overall I like Reel Tape Suite and will use it often.
