Impact Soundworks Releases Tape Sculptor, a next-gen tape plugin

Impact Soundworks has released Tape Sculptor, a next-generation tape plugin created in partnership with engineer Jatin Chowdhury. Tape Sculptor enhances Chowdhury’s free ChowTape Model with an improved user interface and expands it to include 10 independent tape emulation modules and 132 factory presets among many other improvements. The resulting plugin is versatile, easy to use, and effective for everything from subtle to extreme processing.

Tape Sculptor adds warmth, fatness, and smoothness to productions with the true sound of magnetic tape saturation and natural compression. The 10 modules can each be toggled and controlled independently: Filters, Emphasis, Compressor, Saturation, Degrade, Chew, Loss, Flutter, Wow, and Delay. Tape Sculptor can be used to keep a clean and modern sound, or push into intentionally vintage and lo-fi territory with 5 components specifically designed for retro vibes. The 132 presets give a time-saving starting point, conveniently organized into categories: Bus, Saturation, Mastering, Spatial & Modulation, and Extreme.

“As a longtime fan of Jatin’s work, I was thrilled for us to collaborate with him on this plugin,” said Impact Soundworks president Andrew Aversa. “It truly goes way beyond standard tape saturation, and I think people will love the incredible variety of sound design and shaping possibilities.”

Tape Sculptor allows users to infuse subtle warmth and colour during mastering, fatten up drum and bass parts, add lo-fi grit or extreme distortion, or explore entirely new sound design possibilities.

Tape Sculptor is available at an introductory price of $79 (MSRP $99) at the Impact Soundworks store. It is available in VST3, AU, and AAX formats, with no dongle required.
