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.

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.

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

Fly Tape DAW Cassette Comparison
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello every body this is Jason Donnelly aka Dj Puzzle reporting for my website ipadloops.com and today I’m going to show you two cool new effects. Both effects emulate an old cassette tape meaning they can make your brand new sparkling mix sound like it was playing back on an old broken down tape player. On one hand we have Fly Tape by MSXII and the other DAW Cassette by Klevgrand. They are both unique in their own way and they were both released just recently within the past couple of weeeks so I wanted to do a sort of comparison review for both in one video. Now I noticed a lot of the demos for these apps show the app on a master buss affecting the whole mix so I wanted to demo them as an insert effect on a single track. In this case a midi track using an AU instrument.

*I should add “Head Quality” in DAW Cassette is the LoFi effect in that one I kinda rushed over it and skipped that info.

Fly Tape FX Half Speed And More
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Fly-Tape is like Gross Beat for iPhone and iPad. It’s a unique MSXII look on some of the aspects about tape that we love while adding some unique features that are enjoyable! Fly Tape installs as an iOS AUv3 FX plugin, designed for use within host apps such as Garageband, Beatmaker 3, Cubasis, Audiobus, and more. Standalone mode for demo purposes.

Named for it’s performance style of use, users can adding FX to their incoming audio signals in many ways “on the Fly.” Sliders for textured nuances such as hiss & pitch will allow you to dial in tasteful settings that can become reminiscent of cassette tapes. These also can be automated via midi cc for additional modulation.

Fly Tape FX:
Fly Tape includes numerous touch based FX. These FX also release upon button release to enhance the performance experience. Additionally, some FX have more settings upon a quick, double-tap of the effect.

Play Button
• Will start audio (demo drum loop) in standalone mode
• Disabled while in plugin mode

Stop Button
• Will stop playing audio with a scrubbing, slow down effect
• Release will resume audio

Pause Button
• A simple audio mute. Useful for drops in performance
• Release will resume audio

Bypass Switch
• Bypass Fly-Tape audio effect unit as a whole

Noise Slider
• Gradual increase of “hiss” simulation from left to right

Pitch Slider
• Gradual detuning of audio from left (normal) to right (-.50 cents)

Half-Speed FX Button
• Plays audio at half-speed
• Normal playback resumes on release
• Half-Speed will stay in time with current host tempo

Saturate Button
• 2 saturation modes “Clean” & “Gritty” available
• Quick double tap will prompt small menu option
• Release will resume normal audio without effect

Lofi Button
• 3 lofi modes “70’s”, “80’s”, and “90’s” available
• Quick double tap will prompt small menu option
• Release will resume normal audio without effect

Loop Button
• Reverses and loops audio while pressed
• Release will resume normal audio without effect

Stutter Button
• 8 stutter quantize settings available
• Quick double tap will prompt small menu option
• Settings available are 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/8T, 1/16, 1/16T, 1/32, 1/64
• Stutter is immediate upon press, release will resume audio without effect

Tips:
FX buttons can be chained in unique ways to deliver awesome results such as Lofi “70’s –> Saturate “Clean” –> Half-Speed.

All parameters of Fly Tape can be mapped in your favorite hosts. For example, you can map the Noise & Pitch sliders to faders or knobs on your favorite midi controller.

Fly Tape’s Midi CC values are listed below:
Bypass: 102
Pitch: 103
Noise: 104
Tape Stop: 106
Mute (Pause): 107
Half-Speed: 108
