Endless Analog CLASP
The Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor (CLASP) is a hardware and software system that integrates analog tape recorders with DAWs using a proprietary method called SST (sample synchronization technology). CLASP delivers a true analog front-end recording solution with the sonic character of your tape machine. CLASP works invisibly in the background, allowing you to capture all the great warmth off the tape but without impeding the workflow, and because you’re not saving endless out takes of tape, CLASP is easy on the budget. CLASP turns your analog tape machine into an analog-flavored plug-in.
