Well the Tape MELLO-FI finally showed up in Aurturia, hit the activate button on 3 of 4 computers, all is fine. On my killer PC, I see it in Ableton Live, Bitwig 4, and even FL-Studio, and even in Reason 11, but for some reason, it's missing in the list of plugins from Reasn 12.2.3d53 (latest stable version).

I can't find any way to scan for VSTs in Reason (I've know this for a long time. I removed the .dll file from the plugins folder, shut down Reason 12, started it up, shut it down again, re-added the .dll file started up Reason 12 again and nothin...Tape MELLO-FI just doesn't show up.

Valhalla Delay does this lo-fi pitch stuff really well for those that have it. I generally use that instead of Retro Color these days.

expect a long wait for it to show in the account... waiting 4 hours now... they say expect delays because of high demand... although they did have a deal for 3 preset packs for pigments in my upgrade deals :puf_smile:
Took 5 hours for me

weird... this seems to be a bug that needs reporting... I have not made the jump to reason 12 yet. It shows up in 11 and other daws as you state. So... it appears to be another bug in reason 12 ( too many of those happening)... that is why I have not updated> I knew there would be bugs and decided to wait on the upgrade even if it costs more while waiting for them to fix the mess the HD attempt caused> it is sad > mimic and the new combinator are indeed of interest to me,>but not at the price of unreliability within the reason eco system. At this rate... I may have to wait for reason 13 if it is not subscription only ( which is a possibility)

The install button finally appeared for me, and I am really impressed with this plugin. It's easily the most "musical" tape effect I've used yet.

I've already gone full Lofi Girl with it:

There is so many colors to work with with all the different modes. You can get a ton of different "lo-fi" tones. Start here and start playing with things.. Mainly the drive, age, and mod section (whether its the rate and depth, or wow and flutter. Each mode is different)..

The main thing is to put the mix at 100%, delay at 0ms and feedback at 0% in order to skip the delay part of it.

Heck i use this sometimes just for the drive section as well. Nice saturation plugin right there!..

And you have the nice addition of the single pole high and lo pass filters :)

Thanks so much for the explanation. I had no idea that this plugin was so diverse. Now I have to go try it out again!

Yeah I don't get it.. It's not a big thing I guess I can live without it but it's a shame. Fix one thing, break another I guess.

Now today on my MacBook Air, I've had two complete shutdowns (kernal panics) after installing the latest Reason 12.2.3d53 (Stable channel). I'm going to have to revert back to the previous or just not use it at all. I've never had a kernal panic on this thing in the 6 years I've had it. Honestly, quite disappointing. In January I'm getting a MacMini M1 with 16gb of RAM and 1TB of storage. Hoping that when Reason Studios gets around to doing the M1 thing all the other bugs will be squashed.

Thanks for the heads up - got it without any hassles and it sounds pretty good too. Will keep exploring…
