TASCAM Presets: Tokyo Speirs

Walk Off The Earth's engineer and multi-instrumentalist shares his favorite settings

IK has great news for TASCAM Tape Collection users and those that want to give it a try. We're partnering with some incredible mixing and mastering engineers to create their own preset packs for the T-RackS TASCAM Tape Collection, which will be FREE for all IK TASCAM Tape Collection users.

This 5th pack comes from Tokyo Speirs, Engineer and Multi-instrumentalist from the multi-platinum and JUNO Award-winning band Walk Off The Earth. Tokyo's custom batch of presets for TASCAM Tape Machine Collection will help give your music an extra edge to stand out from the crowd!

Here's what Tokyo has to say about IK's analog tape modeling technology:

The TASCAM tape machines bring a diverse toolkit of different saturation and tape compression flavors that range from nearly transparent to thick and dense. If you're looking for that TASCAM sound, there's no easier way than these plug-ins, aside from trying to find one of these units yourself!

My personal favorite is the PORTA ONE because it brings that nostalgic "cassette deck" sound to any source immediately!
