Waves releases the MPX Master Tape developed in association with Eddie Kramer 31/05/11
Developed in association with Eddie Kramer, the MPX Master Tape plug-in is modeled on a rare machine consisting of an Ampex 350 transport and 351 electronics. Here's what Waves has to say about it...
With adjustable tape speed, bias, flux, wow & flutter, and noise parameters, the MPX provides comprehensive control over the contours of your sound. And to top it off, we've added a flexible slap & feedback delay, ideal for rock, dance, dub, you name it. For recording, mixing, mastering, and more, bring the richness and warmth of real tape saturation to your DAW with the MPX Master Tape. It's the reel deal.
