Introducing the T-RackS Tape Machine Collection

Bring back the analog warmth and feel of reel-to-reel recording to your tracks            

IK Multimedia is proud to announce the T-RackS Tape Machine Collection, available now! This collection gives you the true character of analog tape, adding warmth, character and glue to your tracks like never before.  The new models include the Tape Machine 440, Tape Machine 80, Tape Machine 24, and Tape Machine 99, re-creating four classic tape recording machines from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s: the Ampex® 440B, the Studer® A80, the MCI® JH24 and the Revox® PR99.

Buy the Collection for a special $€/99.99* introductory price now

The T-RackS Tape Machine Collection is the culmination of 2 years of research and development on real, world-class machines, each carefully restored “to spec” and modeled stage-by-stage for incredible accuracy. Using a careful mix of convolution and physical modeling, the Tape Machine Collection re-creates the complex interplay of machine, tape, and audio to capture even the smallest detail of each machine.

Give your tracks that classic low-end weight, ear-pleasing high-end, saturation and glue that only tape can provide. Each Tape Machine module offers its own unique character plus 4 tape formulas, selectable tape speed, and common controls to let you easily audition the differences between the different machines and tape formulations.

Inside the T-RackS Tape Collection

Tape Machine 440: The Ampex 440 series dates from the late 1960’s, and delivers an unmistakably soulful color that made this professional and historic mixing and mastering machine a legend. This superb blend of art and technology has the power to turn your mixes into finished tracks.

Tape Machine 80: The legendary Studer A80 Mk II, in its various revisions, is an essential part of countless influential records. Engineered and manufactured in Switzerland from 1970 to 1988, it became the de facto standard for professional high-end multi-tracking. The A80’s sonic signature is a perfect blend between transparency and subtle harmonic enhancement.

Tape Machine 24: A model of the MCI JH24. First produced in 1980, the JH24 was a staple in US studios during the 1980s. This completely transformerless, high performance op-amp-based design delivers a pristine, phase coherent and remarkably true to the source audio performance. This results in a moderate and elegant polish to your music.

Tape Machine 99: The Revox PR99 Mk II is a stereo professional recorder produced by Studer in the 1980s. Engineered around a hybrid design that combines the best of discrete and op-amp topologies, this model offers a very smooth frequency response, especially on bass, with almost no trace of the typical “head bump” phenomenon. A standard for broadcast and classical music, this machine was appreciated by audiophiles for its exceptional sonic quality.

Both the T-RackS Tape Machine Collection and the individual a la carte processors are on sale for pre-order pricing now.

Hey @Peter - IK Multimedia

I don't mean to hijack your post here...

When you guys were about to release AmpliTube MESA/Boogie at a greatly reduced price, there was no demo available-so I didn't buy it. Once the demo came out, the sale was over.

Do you know if there is a sale scheduled on that product in the near future?


Check out the Crossgrade Crunch going on now at the link below. While it's not just for the MESA/Boogie collection, there is a great AmpliTube option offered. Stay tuned for more deals in the IK news letter too. Sign up here.

 I've only got the SampleTank 3, so it doesn't look like I qualify. Mainly looking for Boogie anyway.


Thanks tho

SampleTank 3 MSRP is over $/€99.99 from what I recall so you should qualify.  The best way to see what you qualify for is this page which is tailored for you, when you are logged in:  https://www.ikmultimedia.com/userarea/eligibility/
