Tape has qualities of a multiband compressor, its not just distortion and normal compression. Actually theres only one or two emulations that really get it right. The "tape" simulation in Scream and other distortion units is nice for the distortion part and some general allband-compression but it doesn't exhibit the same multiband compression characteristics as real tape or the Uaudio tape sims.
