The Idea & Process

Cassette Keys.01 is a unique mixture of physical modelling and FM synths recorded on a cassette with an old & wonky cassette recorder. It has a range from C0 to E6 and 4 carefully designed velocity layers. The GUI is very simple (Kontakt version), yet useful and almost synth-like - so just like its predecessor Cassette Piano, it's very easy and fun to work with. Feel free to check out the introduction video to hear and see it in action:

Cassette Keys.01 - Ableton Live 9 version:

Every note of this instrument has been carefully denoised with a high quality algorithm to avoid noise stacking when playing more than one note. Noise can still be added with the noise slider - it's much more flexible this way and allows the ability to adjust the volume of the noise independently whilst also applying parameters such as filtering. It also creates a more realistic sound, so when playing a five voice chord, only one sample of noise instead of five stacked on top of each other will be heard.

The End Result

Useful and fun production tool - If you like vintage sounds and you're looking for something to enhance your production toolbox, then this product will be for you.

Simple, one page interface (Kontakt version only) - Everything is laid out on one page allowing fast sound design possibilities.

Simulated Round Robin (Kontakt version only) - Makes notes sound realistic when played ostinato (even when playing fast) - check out the introduction video to hear it in action.

Variety of sounds - With this instrument you can easily create some weird sounds and there are already 30 presets included (Kontakt & Ableton Live 9 only) to get you started.
