Cassette Plucks.01 for Kontakt

Kontakt Instrument by THEPHONOLOOPAlso available in a bundle

The Idea & Process

Cassette Plucks.01 is a mixture of physical modelling, some subtractive synthesis and sampling. It contains two different pluck instruments with an oriental vibe - both designed from the ground up. Because of all the care that was put into the making of every layer and the magic touch of old cassette recorders, Cassette Plucks.01 is another lo-fi & tasty sounding collection.

Both instruments were recorded in the range of 5 octaves, with 4 dynamic layers using 2 different cassette decks. Overall there are 979 samples - 244 samples per deck, plus 2 noise samples from each deck (1,32 GB of uncompressed 24-bit WAV files).

Every note has been carefully denoised with a high-quality algorithm to avoid noise stacking when playing more than one note (there’s still some noise left in the samples to avoid denoising artefacts). Noise can still be added with the noise knob - 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

Custom impulse responses in Kontakt version

Kontakt version contains custom impulses (4 spring impulses, 4 hall impulses & 3 corridor impulses), along with a choice of whether you want it to be placed pre or post insert effects - same thing goes for the delay.

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.

Simulated Round Robin

Makes faster note passages sound more realistic and adds to the overall nonlinearity of the instrument.

Variety of sounds

Aside from the sound of a cassette record with this instrument you can easily create some weird sounds and there are already quite a few presets included to get you started.
