Soar Tape Delay Plugin From Joey Sturgis Tones Combines Best Of Digital & Analog

Why choose between a digital and analog style featured delay plugin when you can have both? Joey Sturgis Tones' Soar is a solution for those that want to have their tape delay cake and eat it.  

It's always interesting to see what Joey Sturgis is up to in the studio, and what new plug-in goodies he's got coming out of his studio too. Soar is a tape delay plugin that unusually offers both digital and analog flavours in the box. Here's the official press release from Joey Sturgis Tones with video that explains Soar in more detail.

JST Soar Tape Delay Plugin GUI 

April 25, 2017 - Joey Sturgis Tones proudly announces their newest addition to their line of creative audio processors with SOAR. SOAR is a tape delay plugin offering a hybrid approach to using tape delay in the box, combining features from both analog and digital delays. In addition to standard features from both delay types, SOAR adds new features like Health & Contour – providing users with control over their sound previously reserved for the engineering teams behind the delay plugins.

SOAR offers a unique approach to a classic mixing tool by granting users access to additional parameters. While the new features make the plugin a viable option for anyone looking to add variety to their delay collection, the processor also spared no classic controls found across various other delays, including:

  • Repeats 
  • Age 
  • Flutter 
  • Speed 
  • Tape Heads 
  • Feedback 
  • Tap Tempo/Tempo Sync 
  • VU, BPM & MS Metering 
  • Mono/Stereo Switching 
  • Wet/Dry Mix

SOAR is supported on all Macs & PCs running 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. For compatibility with all major digital audio workstations, SOAR is available as in VST2, VST3, AU, & AAX formats.


Pricing & Availability: SOAR is available now at for $129 USD.

If all these plugins weren't so darned expensive, I'd probably buy a few more of them. As it is, I'll just struggle by with the ones I already have.
