With digital AI under the hood providing accurate and easily customizable analog character, the BABY AUDIO TAIP virtual tape-machine plug-in puts a new spin on the classic technology that brought decades of recordings to life with musical warmth and cohesion. Through a handful of intelligently designed controls, TAIP offers extensive control over the tone, style, and intensity of analog tape traits.

It's also packed with loads of presets crafted by top professionals known for their work with famous artists such as Prince, Kanye West, Elton John, Travis Scott, Drake, and others, so you can start with the settings made by skilled hit-makers. For sculpting your own sound, TAIP features single- and dual-machine models, built-in parallel processing, frequency-dependent saturation, and variable wow, flutter, and tape flanging.

A New Spin on Old Tech
Tape plug-ins are not a new concept. However, BABY AUDIO's emulation method is. Instead of using traditional DSP, they developed TAIP around an AI algorithm designed to decipher the invisible nuances of complex analog circuits.

The result is a truly faithful tape emulation with some new features to accommodate a modern workflow. Use TAIP to add a touch of warmth and glue, or drive it hard as an alternative to your distortion plug-ins.
Preset Creators
TAIP comes loaded with 135 presets created by friends of BABY AUDIO, including:

  • Mark Needham (Fleetwood Mac, The Killers, Bloc Party, Elton John).
  • Max Jaeger (Ariana Grande, Kanye West, Drake, Calvin Harris).
  • Eestbound (Travis Scott, Young Thug, Jazz Cartier).
  • Rob Kleiner (Sia, Britney Spears, David Guetta, Cee Lo).
  • Cesar Sogbe (Prince, David Byrne, Jennifer Lopez).
Plenty of Parameters
  • Drive: Use the drive knob to add just as much color as you need, from a subtle touch of heat to heavy distortion.
  • Mix: Run your tape in parallel. If Wear is engaged, you can use the mix control to get a classic tape-flanging effect. This is caused by the wow and flutter of Wear running in parallel with the dry track when the mix value is below 100.
  • Model: While Single is a regular tape emulation, Dual creates a series of two tape emulations chained together under the hood, each applying half of the drive value. This will add slightly more weight to your signal.
  • Lo-Shape / Hi-Shape: These sliders let you saturate the lows/highs more or less than the rest of the frequency spectrum.
  • Glue: Tape machines are known to introduce a pleasing compression-like effect due to their low dynamic range. TAIP lets you add this effect or even exaggerate it.
  • Noise: Lets you add tape noise to taste or avoid it altogether.
  • Wear: This combines wow, flutter, and an altered frequency response curve to emulate a malfunctioning tape machine.
  • Presence: Part of the tape warmth comes from an attenuated high end. TAIP allows you to decide how much of that attenuation you want.
  • Input: Choose between Normal or Hot (more distorted) input levels without affecting the output volume.
  • Auto Gain: Easily add more drive while keeping a consistent plug-in output level.
Display Options
  • Switch between three backgrounds (black, gray, or white).
  • Resize the plug-in window to your liking.
Wide Compatibility
  • Plug-In Formats: AAX, Audio Units, VST, and VST3.
  • Supported Platforms: macOS (10.7 or later including Catalina, Big Sur, and Native Mac M1) and Windows (7 and later).
