The tape from Softube is usually one of the first "EQ" - "compressor" - "Deesser" plugins that I loop into the channel.

Setting A: is very linear and less colored

Setting B: gives the signal low end and a gentle roll off in the treble

Setting C: cleans up the bass range and gives it high end.

It is a very valuable tool to carry its individual signals or groups in the perfect balance and a very fine brush in the paint bucket. As always - make sure you know about the hardware and you also understand what you hear and why. I have 5 stars for a plugin that I use every day. The price is more than good.

Before tape I used Slates VTM. On buses and especially on the stereo bus sounds soft tape for my taste much more authentic. The possibility to switch between Multitrack- and Masterdeck as well as to emulate both with VTM is missing as well as between bands, but I do not miss it. But bring the three settings or tape machines A, B and C enough differences.
While VTM colors the sound very strong and sometimes a bit bad, Tape works much more subtly, which I personally like better and sounds more authentic. That is not that the VTM is now superfluous, but at the moment I use almost exclusively tape. When in doubt, it's nice to have both, to have the right color depending on the production.
CPU utilization is extremely low, the operation clear and self-explanatory. Top!
