DAW Cassette now works entirely standalone! Import your audio, tweak to taste, then export the result. You can of course still use it as an AUv3 plugin if you wish!

DAW Cassette is an Audio Unit effect that emulates the sound of a classic tape deck. The intuitive and easy-to-use controls make it a versatile tool for adding warmth and character to a specific track or your entire mix.


• Choose between three different tape types (normal, chrome, metal)
• Control the noise level (High, Low, Off)
• Tape-, head- and motor* quality knobs for dialling in the perfect sound
• Additional input gain, output gain and dry/wet mix parameters for convenience

* Motor quality only emulates wobbling in this plugin (no slow down effect).

DAW Cassette works both as a standalone app, and as an AUv3 plugin.

It’s very useful, and can add a great warmth to your tracks. It can also be very helpful with distortion at end game on near finished projects, I like the ability manipulate a few aspects of tape sound, but in my opinion 8$ is an overcharge. On my pc i can get free tape au’s that have a wider range of ability in service to accomplish a similar or near better sound. VERY USEFUL, but i wish we had more to this au. Thank you daw cassette.

Good app but audio issues

I don’t know if it’s my phone or not. But other plugins work fine.

I use GarageBand, iPhone 6Plus

Anytime GarageBand optimizes performance (whatever that really does) it crashes DAW cassette. I have to reload but lose my settings.

Anytime I leave the song and load project again there are audio clips, as if the app keeps turning on and off. Eventually GB will prompt if I want to reload or disable the plugin. Selecting reload does nothing. I have to disable plugin and restart.

Occasionally, even when I have not left GB, and am just working on the song, the app will start cutting out and I get prompted - however this is not very often.

Often times when exporting GB Project that has DAW cassette on one of the tracks - it will not export with that effect at all.

My work around is to “flatten” track with the effect by using the GB Merge function. However this means I can’t go back and is not very convenient at all.

Love Klev apps but specifically this app and LP on my iPad seem somewhat buggy.

Easily one of my go to plugins now

This is the missing link for all those tracks, that just had that something missing sonically. I have a lot of tracks that have all the parts and elements there, but still just have that digital coldness, and this just solves that problem and warms them right up. Either use it as an effects to completely mangle or get the lofi sound you want, or use it just enough to warm up a track. Imo this is a must have.
