MIA Laboratories Announce 413 Tape Saturator

MIA Laboratories and Plugivery Distribution announce the upcoming availability of MIA Lab's 413 Tape Saturator plug-in. Available through pro audio resellers worldwide from June 30th, 2020, in AAX / AU / VST2 / VST3 format, Windows and macOS, at the intro price of $49. 413 Tape Saturator offers 3 different types of Analog Tape, as well as 3 different types of distortion. The 413 reproduces the non-linear characteristics that would result when over-driving analog tape, as magnetic saturation occurs with increasing amplitude of the 'recorded' signal...

For the saturation process, the signal gets dynamically changed, especially high frequency information, in response to its amplitude. The resulting effect simulates the saturation of analog tape, in a controllable environment which can be adjusted according to your preference.

The user can choose among 3 different types of Analog Tape, each corresponding to the noise and saturation characteristics of 3 different well known tape brands.

3 distortion types are also available, enabling the user to produce the harmonic content/distortion one would get by over-driving certain Tube or Transistor circuits.

"The 413 is another great plug-in from friends MIA Labs. The subtle saturation-to-increased-drive can really breath life into an otherwise dull mix or individual instrument, and focus elements upfront." - Ashley Smith, Mix Engineer / Producer (Brad Whitford, Derek St. Holmes, Various Artists)
