The 80’S Tape Driver emulates the saturation, the frequency response and the compression of the classic tape recorder.

The soft-clipping circuits add a combination of subtle harmonics, warmth and enhance the details of the processed music material.

The 80’S Tape Driver uses NOS, metal case integrated circuit made in ’80s, creating the more authentic tonal results.

The LBOOST jumpers enable the optional resonant Low-End frequency bump which boosts the bass by approx. 2dB and produces more authentic tape recorder results.

The 80’S Tape Driver adds the natural compression effect to any signal and recording. Enhance the details and transients. Works also as a simple peak limiter, rounding down any spikes of level which is very helpful during the recording with the digital audio interface.

The 80’S Tape Driver is perfect for Tracking and Mastering and it can be used with the C544 or C2584 Signal Processors

HRK Colour Modules – True Analogue Plugins!

Colour Modules are Hardware Analogue Plugins made with NOS Discrete Components and Valves which add pleasing harmonics and subtle saturation to the signal, delivering the sonic results of the Vintage Studio Equipment for a fraction of the Price!

Each Colour Module is different and uniquely impacts the sound. You can use the Colour Modules for Recording, Tracking and Mastering.

What benefit I will get from Colour Modules?

The modern DAW systems can produce great results, but most of the sound engineers and music producers will admit that the mix produced with DAW is missing something… some special ingredient, which is the analogue magic.

This is why the big recording studios have racks filled with vintage preamps, compressors and equalizers. The HRK Colour Modules are real Analogue Plugins which will help you to make better recording and mixes standing out from the crowd.

Brand New, Assembled and Tested.

Every single HRK product is carefully tested with Audio Precision test equipment before the shipping to ensure hassle-free operation.

Return Policy

Our return policy is a part of the general Terms & Condition which you have to acknowledge at the checkout.

We stand for fair rules and a win-win approach. We understand that our customers may wish to return the product and we do provide such option. However, because we are a small company we can’t afford to run a grade B outlet shop like big distributors and provide the 30 days return period.

We can’t also scrap every returned unit. We could charge our customers more to offset the cost of the returns, this is what major distributors do. Or we can keep our prices low and hope that our customers will appreciate our policy.

This is why we provide the 7 days test period after receiving the package with the ordered items and if you wish to return the item we will accept the return request, providing that the item is not damaged and we can resell the product with the minimal loss for the company.

If the item is damaged during the transport we will do our best to help you and provide the replacement product.
