TAP is a new plug-in and the only one in the market able to align tracks automaticallyin real-time, without any learning steps and complicated adjustments.

Because there are no learning steps and no adjustments required, TAP is even able to align different audio parts along the whole track with different time offsets.

TAP is powered by a sample accurate detection DSP able to cancel undesired comb-filter effect without the limitations and drawbacks of traditional phase correction.

TAP's powerful and real-time DSP is looking at each sample of input audio and determines its relative position with the side-chain reference track,  instead of only aligning first audio transient like every audio engineer would do. TAP is able to align track since the first audio sample.

Track alignment is very important in many situations, for example in multi-mics recording or parallel processing.

Parallel Processing Use Case

The size of TAP plug-in was designed for professional usage :

  • only useful information is displayed, no logo or useless decorations
  • set to work on several tracks with several instances at the same time
