MAGNETIC from Nomad Factory is a "reel-to-reel audio tape warmer" plug-in that can impart the sound of tape saturation at various speeds on individual tracks or full mixes. It also features a tube saturation effect as well as a vintage style EQ and a level mastering section. It's just like having a 30+ year old reel-to-reel tape machine without all the maintenance costs.
The modern, simple, and extremely user-friendly interface makes the plug-in easy to use and provides the ability to instantly dial in usable sounds. It can add subtle warmth and tape color to drums, or create a filtered cassette AM-radio effect on a vocal. And when used on the master bus, it can boost the program material up to broadcast levels.
