Default Favorite Tape Saturation Plugin?

Hey everyone!

I know there are a ton of tape saturation plugins out there. I'm looking for a single plugin to use on each track rather than only on the mix bus. What's everyone's favorite?

Thanks!

I still like McDSP Analog Channel, after all these years. And SoundToys Decapitator for more extreme stuff.

Phoenix II owner. Great plugin although haven't used it that much

Just bought Softube Tape recently which is nice.

Long term fan of TapeHead from Massey.

Use Kramer Tape a whole lot. Seldom use J37 by comparison.

Also use the channel saturation/harmonics plugins for a similar effect, probably NLS most often.

There's a few to be going on with.
