This installed without any problems. I didn't have any compatibility issues with this plug-in on my computer. The configuration as far as getting it to work on your computer is very simple, you just need to make sure you register it and that your host software adds it to its VST list. Configuring the software to use it in your music is definitely a bit more difficult. This plug-in has a little bit of a learning curve but it's very convenient and powerful after you learn it.


My computer is a Dell desktop that runs Windows XP. I have a dual core processor and 4GB of ram. For host software I use Nuendo. This program works perfectly well with my DAW, as it should with all other major DAWs that support VST format plug-ins. This plug-in is not very CPU intensive. On my system it uses less than 1% of my CPU overhead, so you could be using a lot of instances of Super Tap and it won't be too much of a strain on your computer which is nice. It is also overall very stable, although it did crash one time that I remember when I was trying to automate a parameter.


I have been using this for a few years. One of my favorite things about this plug-in is the tempo tap feature which is absent from most software. With the tap feature you can quickly tell the computer how you want your delays set up without having to do any mental math. Then for further customization you can pan each delay and also EQ them with the built in EQ filters. You usually would have to do this with several plug-ins and special panning moves without this great tool. If you don't want to tap out your delays, there is also a great visual map of the delays that are set up to happen, and they snap to the tempo of your host as well. There are a lot of features in SuperTap, and it is kind of overwhelming at first, so be advised that you should actually read the manual, and it will be a lot easier on you. It's a great value for the price, this is my favorite delay software. I would get it again.
