Audio Plugin Deals are offering $100 off Portatron Tape Synthesizer by Robotic Bean for a limited time, now available for only $29.99, (usually $129.99). The offer ends February 6th.
The Portatron Tape Synthesizer is an audio plugin instrument that offers a wide range of lo-fi effects and functionalities.
Use the instant lo-fi sound to breathe new life into your samples. Portatron is the ultimate tool for capturing the vibe and character of a classic cassette recorder.
Play tape loops that either follow your DAW’s transport, or play them like a monophonic Mellotron from your keyboard. Build a complete soundscape by mixing four tracks with the built-in EQ, delay and reverb.
Full Lo-fi Control
With Portatron, you have complete control over the cassette sound, including tape speed, noise, dropouts, wobble, and start/stop lag. Switch between Normal or Chrome tape for different noise types and frequency response, and push the Drive on a track to recreate the saturation and compression of recording a signal hot to tape.
Build Tape Loops
Combine your favorite samples in new ways, or use the hundreds of samples included in the sound library as a starting point. We’ve recorded a variety of instruments like piano, vibraphone, vocals, and synths, as well as unconventional sounds like hydrophones and shortwave radio. With the same wobble and other tape effects across all tracks, the samples gel together to create a unique sound.
Portatron can be played in many ways. It can play along with your DAW transport, instantly creating a drone effect, or restarted on each, second, or fourth bar for a semi-synced loop, great for ambient samples. Play it like a 4-track monophonic Mellotron from your MIDI keyboard for quirky leads with vocal samples. Portatron opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities for your music production.
