You know how you love the sound of analog tape recordings, but wish that it was easier to work with them? Well, now you can. Introducing TAIP: an AI-powered plugin that will bring some heat to your music without the need for routing any audio outside your DAW.
Do you love the sound of analog tape?
There are a lot of cool ways to make your music sound vintage and old-fashioned without having to go through the hassle of buying an actual reel-to-reel tape machine.
DAWs are made to mix and produce music
Along with being able to process sounds, DAWs are also used to mix and produce music. Recording engineers will use these programs in order to record the different sound waves that come together to create a song. They can then share these different waves with other musicians in order for them to work on the song’s final product.
DAWs are made to mix and produce music, not be instruments. They’re usually sterile with little life-force behind them, but if you want some authenticity then look no further than the TAIP plugin!
It will bring in that rich analog sound without having to route anything outside of your DAW’s interface – just dial-up how much warmth/characteristics (or whatever term best suits)you desire for each instrument or group within your project using our handy sliders on-screen one before applying any effects chains too…and there ya go!.
And don’t worry if you have a less powerful computer or DAW, because TAIP is compatible with any mix of Windows and Mac OSX!

Create a custom ‘tape flavor’ for any need
It’s a simple plugin to use but will add so much warmth to your tracks; simply dial-up how much ‘analog’ sound/characteristics (or whatever word best suits)you desire for each instrument or group within your project using the handy sliders on-screen one before applying any effects chains too…and there ya go!.
There are a lot of cool ways to make your music sound vintage and old-fashioned without having to go through the hassle of buying an actual reel-to-reel tape machine. One way is using plugins!
Add musical saturation and glue to drums, instruments, vocals
The world’s first Tape plugin was developed at Baby Audio by combining their tried and true algorithm design with DSP techniques used in modern-day production software.
With a product line that spans from vintage emulations to cutting-edge digital audio plugins, Baby Audio is ready for anything. Baby Audio is not just about you keeping the old sound alive – they also want their users’ music to sound new and fresh!
AI is a complicated – and sometimes misunderstood – term. For some, it’s a futuristic buzzword that gets thrown around at every opportunity. But the truth is that artificial intelligence has been playing an important role in our lives for decades now – from powering voice assistants to recognizing objects with your smartphone camera! It all comes down to how these AI algorithms learn and process information as they go through their normal routines of performing various tasks.
In terms of music production, this means that TAIP can learn what different types of tape styles sound like and emulate them in a digital plugin environment! AI offers an alternative – and in our opinion more faithful – approach over the traditional DSP method. You can use AI to quickly experiment with different tape styles and find the best one suited for your project.
Why not use a DSP?
Tape plugin emulation powered by artificial intelligence, TAIP is a great option if you’re looking for an alternative way of achieving that classic analog sound without having to spend time in front of a mixing desk! It’s compatible with any mix, so there’s no limit to your potential music production!
As I see it, there are two main ways to emulate the sound of an analog component. The first is through DSP (digital signal processing) which entails “guessing” what effect various components would have on one another and their mutual dependencies.
A new kind of artificial intelligence can accurately decipher the sonic qualities that make a tape machine sound and behave in the way it does.
The AI’s ability
The AI’s ability is created by using neural networks, which are computer programs based on mathematics equations for determining how neurons or groups of them interact with one another at different rates depending on what input they receive – similar to how nerve impulses travel through your body when you move an arm up versus down.
This is what we call the “digital ears” because they’re able to hear things that humans can’t. The algorithm listens through your audio and identifies certain features, like changes in pitch or loudness for instance; then it gives you back a list of those differences as well as where else those sounds might be coming from so people know exactly why something sounded off when tuning into an unfamiliar channel.
An AI-powered algorithm can accurately decipher the sonic qualities that make a tape machine sound and behave in the way it does. AI will emulate the sound of every single component that makes up your tape machine.
The AI listens and learns how to turn on the difference between a man’s voice, a woman’s voice. If we apply these differences in new audio files then it will be able to create beautiful remixes for listeners everywhere!
With analog equipment, especially those from before digital recording was invented, everything is done by hand – so you see people physically moving faders or sliding sliders to create all this warmth and color as they go along. And while some mixers and outboard equipment can do the same thing, it’s not really a viable option for most people.
AI-powered algorithm emulates the sound of every single component that makes up your tape machine using pure math and physics equations to determine how everything would interact with one another. This is why AI works in such different ways than traditional DSP methods.
