Our studio has just added what is arguably the coolest and most unique device known as the FATSO: Full Analog Tape Simulator and Optimizer

The FATSO is a digitally controlled analog device that gives us easy access to many of the desirable characteristics exhibited by older tube and Class A electronics and magnetic tape mediums. This two channel audio processor musically integrates frequencies and transients, increasing the apparent volume while keeping tight control over peak levels.

With the FATSO, we can enhance and soften the sound of Hardware Digital Recorders (HDRs) and Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) without having to resort to bulky, expensive analog tape recorders to get the warmth and sweet high end we’ve come to rely on for so many decades.
