a 50-year-old Japanese tape machine
about neurontape 1972
Neurontape 1972 brings to you a fantastic simulation of this piece of equipment that is a bit hard to find in good shape these days.
We captured it from a unit that remain mostly untouched for its years. The preamp sound is thick, and warm and will wildly saturate the circuit if overloaded.
This unit is Japanese made, about 50 years old. It sounds awesome.
From mix-bus to parallel distortion, Neurontape 1972 is a must-have plugin for those who want to saturate tracks and glue the mix together with natural analog signal compression or even analog distortion.
Experiment with different input/output levels to get to know what the circuit is really capable of.
circuit and tape behavior
With careful attention to detail, we’ve created a plugin that simulates the subtle nuances of this tape machine, such as tape hiss, wow and flutter, and harmonic distortion, to give your recordings an authentic vintage sound.
Choose between a new or old tape
Neurontape 1972 can run its preamp on different tape conditions.
A newer tape has a wider frequency range and a cleaner noise, while when it is older, it will have more character while being a bit unstable.
different sources require different eq
Back in 1972, this unit was shipped with a built-in equalizer for suiting different recording scenarios. Of course, Neurontape 1972 also has it.
the user interface
Neurontape 1972 is shipped with input/output level control, input/output level metering, tape preamp level control, wow/flutter controls, presets, noise level control, tape age control, equalizer control, and monitor tape/source as on the machine itself.
