Tape Cassette 2 v1.1

We've read your comments and listened to your helpful words and are proud to roll out the updated Tape Cassette 2 v1.1 which now has auto-gain and output gain functions!

Nostalgic Saturation

Tape Cassette 2 is an audio plugin that emulates the warmth, noise and character of old tape cassettes. Following up from our well received Tape Cassette 1, we've updated the plugin with a sleek interface and more changes under the hood too.

Along with a brand new selectable Type 1 Cassette Impulse Response (IR), we've improved the saturation algorithm, wow & flutter engine and implemented real sampled tape noise, all which results in a wonderfully warm and more accurate vintage sound. In addition to this you now have two VU meters to monitor your audio as well as selectable oversampling. Specifics are listed below:

  • Selectable Type 1 Cassette Impulse Response (IR)
  • Dynamic saturation curve algorithm implementing hysteresis and including oversampling
  • Wow & Flutter engines rebuilt to focus on smoother emulation
  • Real sampled noise from a Type 1 Cassette
  • Low Pass range increased down to 5kHz

Now you can easily add that classic sound to an entire track or use it directly on individual channels for added movement, texture, and warmth. Alternatively you can take it further than the material limitations of tape and push the parameters into a far more experimental soundscape, as a sound design tool.

Powerful and Simple Parameters

  • Saturation +/-24dB
  • Low Pass Filter 5-22KHz
  • Noise -80 to 0 dB
  • Wow 0 - 100%
  • Flutter 0 - 100%
  • IR On/Off
  • Oversampling (2x, 4x, 8x, 16x)
  • Output +/-24dB
  • Auto-Gain On/Off
