Tape Face

The Last Tape Emulation You'll Ever Need!

Tape Face is an analog emulation of a classic German tape machine with a few added features to give you versatility in every mix!​

Tape Face is perfect for adding warm analog characters to your master or sub-group busses. Use our custom bias algorithm to add unique low mids and saturation to drums and bass.

Or throw it down on every track to emulate recording through a physical tape recorder using our very CPU-friendly oversampling!

Red and White (I)
This mode is the exact same as the original tape face. Perfect for getting that pumpy tape sound while adding minimal distortion. This setting is best used for mix bus or drums with heavy transients that need taming.
This tape mode is by far our favorite over here at Kiive (as you’ll see by all the presets for this setting).

This mode emulates a near perfectly calibrated tape machine with silky smooth high end, low end bump and a very usable tape compression when the input is driven.

Perfect for mix bus or any finishing touches.
The Compressor section of the Filkchannel allows you to add punch and attack to your tracks with our fixed attack and release opto style compressor.

Use the in and out knobs to adjust the amount of compressor and set the ratio using out variable-ratio knob.

This section also includes a dry/wet mix knob to dial back the amount of compression.

MAN this thing is sick! Gets so chubby and fat, and then I flip the ips switch and it’s the PERFECT top end! Tape Face is the best tape sim. Hand Down! Completely replaced Crane Song Phoenix II for me

Tape Face oozes classy, warm, & gooey tape vibes all day long! Love it’s fast and well thought out approach to help get a mix or master just the right amount of harshness taming saturation, & gifting it with the right amount of low end punch!
