Do you own a tape deck?

    Any size shape or number of tracks.

    Do you use it at all?

    If so, what is it its function in your studio and why?

    If no tape machine, do you use digital emulation of any sort to achieve that analog compression?

    just a consumer-grade cassette deck - I use it for playback when transferring cassette to digital.

    I've got an old teac a-7300 thats quite underrated imo. Same chassis that ampex branded the atr-700.

    I use it to run the odd track/submix through and also converted the built-in mic preamps to be able to run 4 direct outs. Great sounding clean preamps and when driven hard the xformers distort wonderfully.

    Well the Studer 24-track from my old public commerical studio is long gone, but I still have my Tascam 22-2 that was my 4-track cassette mix down deck back in the day. Not even close to what the Studer was, but it gets used from time to time when I want or need the sound of tape. For special or highly valued client mixes, I will often patch it in for final mixing in addition to a digital mix so that they and I have another choice.
