New J37 Tape modelling from Waves and Abbey Road

J37 is a new Tape saturation plugin from Waves and Abbey Road Studios, modelled after the Studer 4-track J37 machine that was used to record the oh so many classic records at Abbey Road.

J37 has controls for things like tape speed, wow and flutter, Bias and Noise Reduction. According to Waves and ARS, the J37 plugin will bring warmth and character to your digital recordings.

Watch the introduction video (image above) recorded at Abbey Road Studios where Peter Cobbin and Mirek Stiles talk about this legendary machine, its history, sound and the new plugin modelled after it. A second video gives you an overview of the plugin itself.

The Native plugin version is for sale at $149 US (Regular price $249). A Soundgrid version is also available for $249 US (regular $375). More info on the plugin can be found at Waves’ website.
