Fly Tape FX Half Speed And More

Fly-Tape is like Gross Beat for iPhone and iPad. It’s a unique MSXII look on some of the aspects about tape that we love while adding some unique features that are enjoyable! Fly Tape installs as an iOS AUv3 FX plugin, designed for use within host apps such as Garageband, Beatmaker 3, Cubasis, Audiobus, and more. Standalone mode for demo purposes.

Named for it’s performance style of use, users can adding FX to their incoming audio signals in many ways “on the Fly.” Sliders for textured nuances such as hiss & pitch will allow you to dial in tasteful settings that can become reminiscent of cassette tapes. These also can be automated via midi cc for additional modulation.

Fly Tape includes numerous touch based FX. These FX also release upon button release to enhance the performance experience. Additionally, some FX have more settings upon a quick, double-tap of the effect.
