Nomad Factory say that this effect can inject sterile audio with the warmth and character of classic tube circuitry and analog tape saturation. The plug-in features pure analog reel-to-reel tape speeds, tape/tube saturation and tape color effects, as well as a dedicated vintage style EQ and a built in Boost mastering section. The result, say Nomad Factory, is a creamy, warm sound that can only be achieved by MAGNETIC.
MAGNETIC II offers new features and 9 new tape models that offers the authentic sound of vintage tape machines such as Otari MX-80 / MTR-90, Studer A80MkII and many more...
A Nomad Factory PR person told us, "MAGNETIC can be used in many different musical ways. Try using it on individual tracks to add subtle warmth and tape color to your drums or use it to create a filtered cassette AM-radio effect on a vocal. But that's not all... when used on the master bus, MAGNETIC can warm your entire mix and "boost" it up to broadcast level. It's just like having a 30+ year old reel-to-reel tape machine at your fingertips, without all the maintenance costs."
