Caelum Audio Releases Tape Cassette 2

Emulation of the warmth, noise and character of old tape cassettes updated      08/06/20

Caelum Audio has released a free Tape Cassette 2 plug-in, an update of their previous version, both being free releases leading up to a fully fledged paid for Tape Pro plug-in. Here's the story in their own words...

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 as well as selectable oversampling. Specifics are listed below:

  • Selectable Type 1 Cassette Impulse Response (IR)
  • Dynamic saturation curve algorithm implementing hysteresis and including oversampling
  • Wow & Flutter engines rebuilt to focus on smoother emulation
  • Real sampled noise from a Type 1 Cassette
  • Low Pass range increased down to 5kHz

 

Now you can easily add that classic sound 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.

Powerful and Simple Parameters

  • Saturation +/-24dB
  • Low Pass Filter 5-22KHz
  • Noise -80 to 0 dB
  • Wow 0 - 100%
  • Flutter 0 - 100%
  • IR On/Off
  • Oversampling (2x, 4x, 8x, 16x)

 

System Requirements

OSX 10.11 and above AU and VST3. Windows 7 and above VST3. On iOS Tape Cassette 2 is both a stand-alone application as well as an AUv3 plugin, meaning it works within iOS hosts such as GarageBand. An internet connection is required to licence the plugin.
