Tape Saturation plug-ins have their place, but not if you want the true analog tape sound.  As much as plug-ins try to emulate, it's still digital; our Audio Tape Saturation service is a cost-effective way of running any part of your audio through a real tape recorder via a Behringer preamp stage.

What you Remember about Cassettes
Do you remember the days you used to record music on to tape from the radio? Not great quality, full of noise and the sound was muffled. That's because you didn't have a very good deck, used very cheap recording media (remember those horrid Ferric-based "normal" type tapes? Yes, you bought them by the bucket load didn't you!?) and your recording levels were not making the best of analog. Making things worse, you were probably fooled into the lure of Dolby Noise Reduction - oops!! Big oops, in fact, a big disaster.

How we will Help You
Using a combination of our recording expertise and studio equipment, we can take any audio you have created and run it to tape as hot as you like. It could be an entire mix, or maybe just the bass track, or better still, burn an entire vocal to tape, giving lovely analog saturation, as hot or as cold as you like. We'd suggest going hot!! Go hot or go home...

In our studio, we use a Technics RS-B305 cassette deck as the recording device. This deck was made in 1988 and is part of the golden age of high quality domestic recorders, giving your audio a beautiful true analog aesthetic.

We only use the best Metal-based recording media, meaning you can take advantage of the full sonic spectrum cassette has to offer.

Listen to the Results Yourself
Before proceeding, check out the sound for yourself in the Demos tab! - Remember this is true analog (not a single plug-in in sight!), and then recorded back into the digital realm, for use in any DAW or digital recorder. We must stress, absolutely no post-production processing has been added at all. No EQ, no de-noising, no compression, not even normalising. Absolutely nothing!

The audio example takes a drum loop, a bass loop and a vocal sample and applies a good deal of heat through our audio tape saturation process. Each loop is heard twice; the 2nd of each is the one with the audio tape saturation applied.
