In Steinberg Studio Sessions Season 2 Episode 9, at 54:39 Keiron McTernan says "the other thing that i like to use is the j37" and he opens an instance of Waves J37 Tape in Cubase 8.
A juicy tape emulator that can be used on literally ANYTHING. I have used this on entire stereo mixes, and it made them sound as if they were recorded next to a warm fireplace!
He uses the Waves j37 Tape for almost every track in "Wait Up" as you can see in this video.
I still would try my hand at tape (I mean modding the machine) but if you can't afford it or have the time to take care of it i would give this a try.
tape machines aren't a big PUTA to keep maintained, no one uses them anymore because the reels are expensive now that hardly anyone manfactures tape
Good tape saturation to add some analog texture to your sounds.
Buena tape saturation para añadir algo de textura analógica a tus sonidos
this is a cheeky plugin that adds character the mix
