Default An interesting comparison of tape, digital, digital to tape, and digital tape plugin

Copy/Bounce Digital Audio to Tape - How does it sound? (Analog Tape Shootout #3) - Chords of Orion

The tape recording has lots of noise and so isn't exactly hifi, but it doesn't bother me at all. I would say that the Kramer plugin sounds odd in comparison. The tape recording sounds like a stereo image that is eminating from the center. I can't tell where the center is with the plugin, and the lack of noise just sounds wrong to me.

The same person does a more direct comparison of that tape machine to the Kramer plugin here:
It's time to take a stand against the synthesizer.
