Nomad Factory (http://www.nomadfactory.com/) has launched Magnetic II, a “real to real” audio tape warming effect plug-in that gives audio tracks a “vintage tape sound.”
According to the Nomads, this effect can inject sterile audio with the warmth and character of classic tube circuitry and analog tape saturation. The plug-in features analog reel-to-reel tape speeds, tape/tube saturation and tape color effects, as well as a dedicated vintage style EQ and a built-in boost mastering section.
Through Dec. 31, 2011 the Magnetic II plug-in will be sold at introductory price of US$79; normally it will be $149). An upgrade path from the Magnetic I is also available for only $20. Magnetic II is also available as part of Nomad’s new “Integral Studio Pack III,” which is being promoted for $199 (normally it will be $599).
