Tape simulation recorder, player and effect for Inter-App Audio and Audiobus. Easy to use application with convenient control brings the richness and warmth of analog tape machines to your instrument, voice or final tracks.

Not only as an effect but also as a standalone application the Master Record can be used with external audio interfaces for real-time sound processing and high-quality recording in the studio together with other equipment.

In addition with this application you can convert audio formats, change sample rate, convert bit depth, cut part or trim a track and apply fade-in and fade-outs.

  • 16, 24, 32

  • Dithering with noise shaping.

Processing sections:
  • High quality 32 bits processing algorithms.
  • Individual input gain control for each channel from -6 db to +18 db. Possible to link gain controls. Selecting input channels for mono or stereo recording and dubbing.
  • Classical two bands shelf equalizer. Low band is 200 Hz, +/- 6 db. High band is 12 kHz, +/- 6 db.
  • Tape recorder effect with three types of frequency response and controlled wow/flutter level. Frequency response type:
    • "Linear" - Almost linear frequency response with slight variations.

    • "Cut" - Frequency response is similar as low tape speed, high bias, multitrack recorders.
  • Tape saturation effect with three types of saturation and level control. Saturation type:
    • "Normal" - Normal saturation similar to the optimal level on tube equipment or tape recorders.
    • "Warmth" - High saturation similar to the high recording level on tape recorders with partial limiting of signal.
    • "Overload" - Very high saturation similar to the overloaded amplifier stages.
  • Noise effect with four types of noise. Noise type:
    • "Console" - Noise typical for old school analog mixing consoles.
    • "Reel" - Reel tape recorders noise.
    • "Cassette" - Cassette recorders and portastudio noise.
    • "Tube" - Tube amplifiers noise.

New processing algorithms for future apps

This is a testing samples dry and processed guitar with "Super chorus" (working name) algorithm for future effects console app for iPad. It's one of creative effects with many tweak features not only for guitars but for different signal sources.

For record was used Gibson LP '75 + custom tube combo, processed only by "Super chorus".
