Win Abletunes Retrotape, RVRB, FX Mate! (WINNERS ANNOUNCED)


Abletunes is giving away Retrotape, RVRB, and FX Mate plugins to three lucky BPB readers (one plugin per winner).

If you’re an Ableton user, you might already be familiar with Abletunes, a brand specializing in creating Ableton Live templates.

Abletunes has over 250 templates in its collection, intending to help producers of all levels better understand professional techniques and musical production trends.

As well as creating educational content, Abletunes makes sample packs, presets, and plugins.

Let’s examine the three Abletunes plugins included in the giveaway: Retrotape, RVRB, and FX Mate.

Before I get into those, don’t forget Universal Audio’s Poly MAX synth is free with any purchase at Plugin Boutique throughout February 2024.

Abletunes Retrotape

Retrotape (€59,00) takes you back to the 1980s by accurately emulating a vintage cassette recorder (no actual time travel occurs, not that I had my hopes up or anything).

The plugin has an Age slider that gradually introduces more of the signature character of an old tape head. The Noise section provides three distinct noise profiles: Type One (standard cassette noise), Type Two (filtered noise), and Type Three (ambient sound of a professional cassette player).

Retrotape offers an authentic recreation of a much-loved retro sound, or you can use it to create more unusual, beautifully-textured soundscapes.

Abletunes RVRB

RVRB (€71,00 current sale price) is a modern algorithmic reverb plugin with over 60 built-in presets to suit the most common instruments/sounds. Like Retrotape, RVRB is also capable of generating either authentic or experimental results.

RVRB features twelve algorithms, including basic rooms, halls, and plates. This plugin has a Soft Attack knob that smooths the input signal’s initial transient, allowing you to pick up the reverb from the body of the sound, reducing any unwanted harshness in the reverb tail.

You can also boost the reverb tail with the built-in compressor. RVRB features a four-band damping EQ with a real-time spectrum analyzer. The slick GUI helps get the best out of RVRB’s loaded features set.

Abletunes FX Mate

FX Mate (€59,00) is exactly what the name suggests; it’s a multi-effect plugin that includes a selection of toolkit essentials.

The plugin makes it easy to add common effects like compression, reverb, distortion, delay, adjust the stereo width, and boost the low and mid-high frequency ranges.

As well as providing a range of go-to effects, FX Mate aims to make the application of those effects as straightforward as possible.

To make things easier, Abletunes has mapped multiple parameters of each effect to a single knob, so with one turn, there’s plenty more going on under the hood.

FX Mate is a handy plugin at any level; it helps beginners get better results stress-free, and it could help any user save some valuable time.

Free Abletunes Infinite Keys

As we launch this giveaway, Abletunes released a free Instruments Rack for Ableton Live called Infinite Keys.

The rack offers a variety of unique keyboard and synth sounds for use in sound design and music production. Its dual-layer engine blends 128 instruments and waveforms sourced from over 30 vintage and modern analog synthesizers and acoustic instruments.

The free Infinite Keys collection contains diverse sounds, from grand and upright pianos to unique instruments like kalimba and xylophone. It includes 3.5 GB of audio content and features two effect selectors, each loaded with 40 pre-designed effects.

Another helpful feature is the randomization button, which lets you randomly generate new instrument combinations with unique filter settings and effects.

Infinite Keys is free for use in Ableton Live, requiring version 11.0.12 Standard or Suite.

  1. Abletunes RVRB looks yum..
    had entered on 100 give away but never won yet never lost hope
    winning these would means alot..

  2. wunschmaschine


    Well, most people seem to prefer the retro machine. Since I already got some tape emulations and to boost my chances I’m going for RVRB!

    Also still got no modern (in terms of looks and functionality) goto-reverb, only some proper old-gear-simaltions…

    So, RVRB it is! :)

  3. Retrotape team !!
    I grew up with cassettes and I prefer the emulations of small tape recorders to those of large studio tape machines.
    I’m curious to hear this one.

  4. Absolutely the RVRB. It looks really slick and I don’t have Standard or suite (yet) so I have no use for the rack at the moment

  5. I have too many tape emulations, but I don’t have enough reverb. Abletunes RVRB has a nice sound, and I would be grateful to receive it.

  6. Which of these three plugins would you like to win?
    -All of them of course! I’m a sucker for new plugins all the time 😁

  7. As a soon to be 51 year old man (two16) it’s Retrotape for the win for me. I still own about a few hundred or more cassette tapes that still play, some of which are recordings from various radio shows. My most fondest gift as kid were all surrounding music. That first cassette recorder with the big red button on it… the upgraded double cassette recorder with detachable 3-way speakers. It had three 3 inch mid speakers on each speakers. A speaker on the top, the front, and on the side. You couldn’t tell me nothing.

    The cassette Walkman I got in XMas 84… I remember having daisy chained about 8 speakers (taken from out old TVs) going around my bedroom, all connected to the heaphone jack of that Walkman. The Discman I got for my 16th birthday in 1989… such great memories.

    The allure of that tape sound now, I get it. Being able to connect back to what we more often than not, disliked at the time is amazingly charming!

  8. I would love if I won the Abletunes RVRB. I have yet to “fall in love” with a reverb plugin and I’m hoping that this one could be it!
