UPDATE! I've uploaded some sample mix it's on a reply below.
Just wow! finally nailed that warm dark tape sound I wanted. been playing a lot with VTM. used Kramer before. was ok but did not have much experience trying to get that tape sound
I'm almost done mixing my project and for fun I tried adding kramer tape on masterbus just before VTM (and before RC-Tube). my VTM is set to 15 ips ,70's stock tape and bias to low. with a bit of input to saturate. its the best I can do to remove all the bright and harshness of the mix.but it's still not as dark (70's style) as I want it. . but with added Kramer Tape at 7.5. ( remove completly the waves kramer wow and fluter and hiss and as less saturation/distortion as possible). I put the VTM tape hiss as a minimum (but that I could hear it just a bit) and 100% wow and flutter
man my song just lifted up! sounds like the records I listen and love.all done in my bedroom!
well I'm tired and ive been mixing for 12 hours.so maybe tomorrow i'll listen back and find it oo dark..I hope not.lol ill post a mix soon.
I also want to sum the mix in Harrison Mixbus. I cant wait to see how it will sound
anyone using more than one tape plugin on master bus? how do you try to have your mix dark / vintage style?
