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%

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

Finally I can create some decent fx for my Lofi house tracks

I love this app! It crunches up the drums for my Lofi production on GarageBand.

So glad I found this

When I was a teenager we used a Tascam 4-track cassette recorder for our music for a few years but then switched to digital. I never forgot the sound of tape and how everything sounded better running the input levels into the red, which you can't do digitally without creating ugly distortion without any of that sound I liked with tapes. So recently I had been thinking about it again and wondering if there was a way to get that sort of thing with digital without having to actually use tapes etc (it was the sound possibilities I liked about tape, not being limited to four tracks and nothing else, etc). Suddenly it dawned on me to search for an app, maybe someone also wanted the same thing and had figuref out how. Well, I was amazed to find this and to find that it was free, because I wouldn't have been able to pay at the moment and probably would forget later when the interest faded, but I'm really glad I got this, it's amazing. Sounds everything I liked about tape, the saturation knob is so good, it really vividly reminds me of recording to tape, how increasing the input level could bring more fullness and power and life to the sound rather than immediately causing a digital demon to die in your ears like with digital. I can't believe I can now get this sound for my music, it's seriously one of the best things I've stumbled onto in life in a long time and I really appreciate the developer making it available for free. What a great gift, thank you! anyway besides the saturation, the low pass filter is fantastic, my guitar sounds right now, I could never seem to eq it in garageband to my liking, if i tried raising bass freqs it would end up too muddy overall, but this filter is perfect, captures the real sound of my acoustic guitar like the bass I feel in my body when playing, without muddying up the rest of its frequencies. then there's the noise knob, it's great too because i think there is a creative benefit of hiss, think about it like tv static in which you see many things due to pareidolia, i think something similar occurs with hiss and i was sick of the dead digital sound for years. it alwo has two other knobs that basically recreate tape warble. i'm finding they're best set extremely low and a bit useless if set too high except maybe for special fx. but the warble set low also reminds me of classic tape. I want to thank the developer again, this really will change so much for me now in a great way. If there's anyway for you to respond to this, is there any risk of this app becoming unavailable in future or what? I'd hate to lose it, it's my new secret weapon for great sound.
