Free AUv3 Tape Cassette Effect

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 and built in oversampling.

You can easily add that classic sound to an entire track, or use 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.

Parameters:

⁃ Saturation (+/-24dB)
⁃ Low Pass Filter (5 to 22KHz)
⁃ Noise (-80 to 0 dB)
⁃ Wow (0 to 100%)
⁃ Flutter (0 to 100%)
– IR (On/Off)

Tape Cassette 2 is both a stand-alone application as well as an AUv3 plugin, meaning it works within iOS and iPadOS hosts such as GarageBand.

Free tape cassette effect app for iOS

Tape Cassette is an easy to use audio plugin that gives your music warmth, noise and character. Whether it’s an effect on the master for an overall lofi / indie texture, or as an insert to warm up individual channels, Tape Cassette gives you the tools to turn your music into a cosy, nostalgic listening experience. Take the plugin into experimental territory by using the wow & flutter parameters and spin your sounds into a frenzy, or use the saturation parameter to heat up the sounds into a distorted cacophony.

⁃ Saturation (+/-24dB)
⁃ Low Pass Filter (8-22KHz)
⁃ Noise -80 to 0 dB
⁃ Wow 0 – 100%
⁃ Flutter 0 – 100%

Casio SK-5 Inspired App

Casio SK-5 Inspired App

SK-51 is an all-in-one keyboard inspired by the Casio SK-1 (and his brother the SK-5), a 8-bit lo-fi keyboard from the 80’s, with sampling features and onboard drum machine.
Called the poor man’s sampler at the time, this keyboard was a real instrument and has been used by many major artists such as Fatboy Slim, Portishead, Autechre and Nine Inch Nails.

As some of us at Fingerlab compose their first songs with it when they were kids in the eighties, we wanted to bring back to you this particular feeling from the past, so we created the SK-51.

We recorded all the instruments and drums notes, one by one with a professional audio quality (16bit/44KHz), we recreated the sampling features, and we transcribed all the demo drums patterns.
We also added the sounds from the Casio VL-Tone, a keyboard older than the SK-1 but nevertheless famous.

With its nice and true to life interface, many instruments (Trumpet, Flute, Piano, Vibraphone, …), 4 sampling slot and many drums patterns and sounds, the SK-51 is versatile and fun music tools.
Record your voice, start the drum box, play a chord and you got it!

Free version features:
– 3 instruments (Flute I, Piano I, Trumpet)
– 7 drums kit
– 4 sampling slot
– 3 demo drums patterns
– Full Mixer
– Midi support
– AudioBus & Inter-App Audio support
– Ableton Live support

IAP Full version features:
– 19 instruments (including Brass Ensemble, Vibraphone, Chorus and many more…)
– 7 drums kit
– 21 demo drums patterns
– 3 FX: Phaser, Delay & Reverb
– Live Recording
