Update 1.1

Here's what's new in the v1.1 update:

  • Added REV (reverse) mode
    • In this mode you can adjust the start point of every sample with Attack slider in Volume section - it's best to keep it fairly low in this mode.
  • Added Mono mode
    • Useful when playing legato and you don't want your notes to overlap.
  • 10 new presets.
  • Fixed clipping when using Chorus effect.
  • Better scaling of Attack slider in Volume section.

The Idea & Process

The concept behind Cassette Piano was to record piano sounds on to cassette (every key x 3 velocities) with a classic old & wonky cassette recorder and compile these 264 samples within a Kontakt instrument with a sleek, simple and synth-like GUI.

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
