Tape plugins. Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.

Wow Control

Goodhertz have just released a new tape-based wow & flutter plugin called Wow Control ($129 – 15-day trial).

It can reproduce “every noise, every wobble, & every harmonic of three tape machines spanning three decades”.


How’d you like your tape today?

One of Wow Control’s coolest features is the ability to double — and even triple — sounds in interesting ways.

Make sure you try the random button, and let the loops run for a while.
