The Endless Analog CLASP (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) let you record on analog tape with digital controls. The best of the two worlds. (16 channel version)

The Endless Analog CLASP 16 brings the legendary sound of real analog tape to the modern DAW workflow by seamlessly integrating your tape machine into your DAW setup. Now you can record to tape and get the sound you love without waiting for transfers, lynx boxes, or SMPTE. CLASP gives your tape machine computer-control, all the while maintaining the speed and flexibility of a DAW. Best of all, CLASP delivers what is technically impossible using a DAW alone; real-time analog monitoring with zero-latency through a mastering grade audio signal path.

CLASP consists of mastering-grade hardware and rock-solid control software

Analog auto-router with zero-loss and zero latency
Tape machine remote emulator - works with virtually any professional analog tape machine that has a remote connection
Master control plug-in to coordinate delay compensation, tape track arming and tape transport
Supports Mac and PC, Pro Tools, Nuendo, and Cubase

How do I use it
CLASP hardware installs between your mic pres, DAW, and tape machine, typically accessible through your patch bay. CLASP is compatible with Pro Tools HD, Logic and Nuendo, providing 24 tracks of recording. The CLASP software suite includes versions for RTAS, AU, & VST. Once installed, simply set up a recording session inside your DAW, initialize synchronization of your analog recorder to your DAW with CLASP, and you are ready to record. Daisy chain up to three CLASP hardware interfaces and synchronize three analog recorders for a total of 72 channels of recording. Use with a 16 or 8 track for tracking sessions or even a 2 track for overdubs. Combine different machines and tape speeds for different tones. With the CLASP the possibilities are endless. Record, listen, and enjoy.
