Tape Cassette 2

Nostalgic Saturation: Tape Cassette 2 is an audio plugin by Caelum Audio that emulates the warmth, noise and character of old tape cassettes. It offers powerful and simple parameters, including:

  • 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

In addition to these features, Tape Cassette 2 also includes:

  • 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

You can use Tape Cassette 2 to add a classic sound to an entire track or use it directly on individual channels for added movement, texture, and warmth. The plugin is compatible with Mac OSX 10.11 and above (AU and VST3, 64-bit only) and Windows 7 and above (VST3, 32 & 64-bit).

Alternatively, you can use Tape Cassette 2 as a sound design tool and push the parameters into a far more experimental soundscape, beyond the limitations of tape.
