With digital recording becoming a standard at every studio, analog recording by means of reel tape is becoming a thing of the past. Audiophiles and engineers alike will talk of how amazing the sound of tape is. In the digital realm, companies are making vast improvements on making plugins that can emulate the sound of classic tape machines. This Capstone looks at the history and mechanics of tape machines and their digital counterparts, the differences and similarities between the two, and their respective roles in studios.
