Despite being a bit grainy, I prefer Kramer tape and I have tried many on the market. For treatment especially of buss mix using ribbon mics it is excellent. When using on other sources, Kramer desperately needs a wet/dry mix; it can be quite harsh on already bright mics/high impedance pres. I work on minimalist approach so there isnt usually plug after plug in my insert list…a simple fix would be very handy rather than mult tracks/sends etc.
Simple is productive and spontaneous
What I found great about the Native Instruments approach to eg Guitar rig, is to expose all the major/upper level parameters and have a hidden window to get to the lesser used/power user options, even tucking away somethings like wet dry would be fine and not clog the UI
