      Oxide Tape Recorder - extra harmonic content

      I use Oxide to add pleasurable fuzziness and extra harmonic content to the sound of my guitar. Everything sounds better with Oxide.

      It's great to add some analog sound to the mix as well as the individual tracks.

      Tape Trio!

      As many others here have said, this isnt a "lite" version of the Studer or Ampex machines. The Oxide has a flavor of its own! As someone who likes to fiddle with all the options under the hood its a lifesaver for short deadlines with it's "set and forget" design. Low DSP usage and the pleasant "glue" it adds when used across a mix makes this a win win for me!
