I’ve been using Softube Tape for a long time but haven’t encountered this issue before. Whenever it’s active in my signal chain, it introduces digital artifacts in the high frequencies that sound like bit or sample rate reduction. They start at about 3.7 kHz.
Here’s a recording of a filtered synth arp that begins with Tape active, then I deactivate it, then activate it again.
Here’s me doing another on/off comparison but with the artifacts isolated.
Definitely not normal. Any ideas?
