Analog tape machine emulation plug-in based on the MCI JH24


Tape Machine JH24

Ultra-realistic virtual analog tape machine plug-in based on the MCI JH24


Professional analog tape recorders are highly prized tools for the unique character they impart to audio. One fantastic machine, designed and manufactured in the US, with a unique sound is carefully recreated in the T-RackS Tape Machine 24.


The MCI JH24 was first produced in 1980 and was a staple in studios across the US throughout the ‘80s.  The completely transformer-less, high performance op-amp based-design delivers a pristine, phase coherent, and remarkably true-to-the-source audio performance every time.


The JH24 delivers a sound that’s perfect for multi-tracking and mixing/mastering to give your overall mix a cohesive sound with a moderate and elegant polish.


Using a mix of dynamic convolution and physical modeling, the Tape Machine 24 re-creates the complex interplay of machine, tape, and audio to capture the analog audio tape recording pro-cess down to the finest detail.


The Tape Machine 24 is perfect if you want to give your tracks a musically enhanced feel, to really capturing the magic within every note!


4 magic formulas

The Tape Machine 24 also lets you choose from 4 different tape formulations, each with its own unique harmonic character:


- 250: Modelled after the 3M/Scotch 250 tape

- 456: Modelled after the Ampex 456 tape

- GP9: Modelled after the Quantegy GP9 tape 

- 499: Modelled after the Ampex 499 tape


Comprehensive controls

Each Tape Machine plug-in offers controls over tape speed, head selection, record bias, and other common controls, as well as exclusive features like "true stereo" to re-create the subtle differences between left and right on a real analog machine, and IK's powerful new transport modeling, which captures the realistic wow and flutter of each machine.
