Cassette is an audio plugin that imparts the unique character and sonic imprint of an often maligned recording medium. A one that offers a sound like nothing else and that I’m in love with. This is not a tape machine, this is a time machine.
IT’S IN OUR DNA
An entire generation heard the music that shaped their lives on cassette tape.
I grew up listening to them at home, on the car or on a walkman.
They are not perfect, in fact, they are far from perfect.
That’s what I love about them.
A LOVE LETTER TO SIMPLE THINGS
This is my tribute to the sound that shaped my childhood.
I discovered the passion for music between quirks and random fluctuations.
Watching the meters move as I sung into an old microphone.
Red peaks and analog saturation. Rewind, listen again
No pencil needed
Cassette is an audio plugin that emulates the sound of vintage cassette tapes and decks. It has been carefully modelled after exhaustive analysis of a high number of sound signals recorded into real tapes. As a result, we get the same sound and behaviour of the original units.
Magnetic tape is not a sterile media. Because of that, it will impart its own sound signature to signals recorded into it. These include a different frequency response, frequency dependent saturation, high-frequency compression, hiss, asperity noise and much more.
Reproduction systems will also induce their fingerprint: wow, flutter, random high-frequency loss, crosstalk between channels, stereo unbalances and other.
All of these little quirks and random fluctuations have been modelled meticulously. Cassette imprints instant nostalgia, movement and analog feel all around in its path.
