Pittsburgh Digital Celebrates ten years of success with Cakewalk/Roland AmpSim and Tape Sim software plug-ins

The award-winning SONAR 8 by Cakewalk/Roland is the industry's leading multitrack digital audio and MIDI software. Pittsburgh Digital celebrates ten years of mutual success with Cakewalk’s AmpSim and TapeSim plug-ins, created by Pittsburgh Digital in late 1998.

While it’s unusual for any MI software product to have a life of more than 5 years, the sonic quality of these plugins is all the justification needed for Cakewalk/Roland to continue shipping them with their flagship software products.

Congratulations to Cakewalk/Roland on our shared success!

"…Amp Sim and FX2 Tape Sim, both of which are useful and under-rated distortion devices"
