More than an authentic tape plugin

Tape used to be the default way to record audio, degrading with every playback in a way that’s become synonymous with its sound.

Now producers, beat-makers, and sound designers actively search for that crunchy, noisy, imperfect sound to give their production character and attitude. With Tape MELLO-FI, that search is over.

Inspired by iconic tape-based instruments that truly pioneered ‘that’ sound, this plugin is expertly-engineered to not just sound like tape; it behaves like tape too. From the uncanny wows and flutters, to a tape wheel that you can actually click on and interact with, Tape MELLO-FI gives you the bold, unmistakably aged character of a worn out magnetic tape right in your DAW.

The sound of the Mellotron

The Mellotron, introduced in 1963, was a keyboard that had a tape playback mechanism under every key. Tape MELLO-FI’s sound and behavior is inspired by Mellotron V, our software recreation of this legendary instrument.
