We love tape sounds. So here it´s all about the inspiring potential of our nostalgic feelings around tape. Listening to radioplays before sleeping as a child, recording demo tracks on a four track.
Bringing back the warmness and imperfection with saturation, wow & flutter by playing instruments through all kind of tape gear and experimenting with it. A nostalgic journey emphasizing the beauty of imperfection.

SPIEL UHER

Taped Musicbox

We recorded a Spieluhr. We send it thru an old Uher Tape Machine. We like bad puns. We created a Spieluher. It contains options to control length, tone and a LoFi effect. Additionally you can activate an ensemble function, distortion, delay and reverb.

CASSETTE KALIMBA

Charming Noise

5

Cassette Kalimba - We noticed that this old cassette radio laying around in the corner has a recording function. No time to waste we fed it with a kalimba and a xylophone to offer a mix between wood and metal. Completed with a decay layer we got those warm percussive tape sounds we aimed for.

SWAYED KEYS

UNIQUE RHODES

5

We wanted more metal in our tape collection. So we send a Rhodes through tape hardware to create a warm and fluttering tape sound. In order to enrich the sound we layered a grainy processed vibraphone sound. Got it - some warm taped metal!
Swayed Keys contains a balance knob to control the amount of the grainy layers which is linkable to the mod wheel, a knob to control the amount of a tremolo and a tone knob. You can further shape the sound with phaser, distortion, delay and reverb.

TAPED FLUTE

PURE INSPIRATION

5

Taped Flute - When we think of a flute, elegant, clear tones might be the first thing that come to mind. Having his mind detached from this, Jumpel recorded a flute through an analog tape delay while changing settings as the recording went on. Combining a calm and a noisy layer we created a unique sound that we call Taped Flute.
Taped Flute contains a balance knob to control the mix between the calm and the noisy layer, a knob to control the amount of a rotary and a tone knob. You can further shape the sound with phaser, distortion, delay and reverb.!

ECHOLETTE CHOIR

Swirling Air

5

Echolette Choir - One can elicit sounds from an old Tube Tape Delay, which urgently needs to be sent to the service, that were actually not intended. So Jonas sent various sound sources through his old tape delay, turned the feedback knob to insane and let the machine sing in the self oscillation and captured some moments. You can now hear the old tubes distortion which is wonderful warm and organic.

SONIC WASTELANDS

Lost World

5

Wandering through wastelands is something not many of us have actually done, but the feeling of it seems strangely familiar. Kind of like the feeling of a somewhat lonely late night studio session. Sonic Wasteland was created in such a setting, when Nik was recording Guitar Harmonics while tapping on his Strat. By sending his sounds through an old tape machine and adding a vintage Glockenspiel and a resonance-pad.
