thanks!


put the letter 'm' after the letter 'a' in "apex" and what do you have? probably one of - if not, THE - most sought after tape machine emulations in the plugin world. once i'd learned that stevie wonder's engineers/co-producers recorded his classic albums through a custom A*I onto mm1000 (precursor the 1100 sampled in this library), i've been waiting with baited breath for the nebulized version.

michael, you are the man. when i come back from the road, i'm purchasing this immediately! :D
ok, bye!!!

^well, r2r certainly isn't incomplete. there are more than enough options in the library as is. still, "the apex tape collection" is definitely worthy of its own separate release due to its desirability. as excited as i am to try it, i'm in no way regretting my purchase/extensive use of the r2r library.

p.s. - just noticed the similarity in our screen names. are we long lost brothers? :P
ok, bye!!!

The MM1000 is the father of 16track recorders. It was the first commercially available 16-track (I believe "Crimson and Clover" was the first commercial recording made on one). It is the classic American pop/rock (and a lot more) sound and was the gold standard of large format machines for a very long time before other companies caught up and made some of the other classic 16 track 2". I'm sure there are some who prefer Studer but for many the MM1XXX is THE classic large format multitrack sound.

ETA: Another deck in the collection, the ATR-102, was THE mastering deck of choice for a long time too. Classics. A seriously ridiculously long list of records between these two machines alone (sorry I don't have such a list or I'd share it).

Thanks a lot, Michael!
For me this is a dream, It's a real key to the early 60s sound I'm always trying to recreate.

Gracias!!
