Rewind Back in Time with a Worn-Out, Vintage Aesthetic

Wavesfactory Cassette is an audio plugin that imparts the unique character and sonic imprint of an often maligned recording medium, one that offers a sound like nothing else. This is not a tape machine, this is a time machine.

Feel the lo-fi magic of the VHS era — with six unique effects in one strange plugin: Baby Audio Super VHS. The effects that come together to form this one-of-a-kind plugin include noise generation, saturation, sample rate reduction, chorus and reverb.

Push the limits of how warped and saturated your audio can get with Denise Bad Tape. The extreme 'Tape-Harming' effects inside of this plugin will allow you to go out of tune and off of the grid.

The Lo-Fi Bundle is exclusive to Plugin Boutique and available for a limited time only.

Wavesfactory - Cassette

Cassette is an audio plugin that emulates the sound of vintage cassette tapes and decks. It has been carefully modelled after an exhaustive analysis of a high number of sound signals recorded into real tapes. As a result, you get the same sound and behaviour of the original units.

Magnetic tape is not sterile media. Because of that, it will impart its own sound signature to signals recorded into it. These include different frequency response, frequency-dependent saturation, high-frequency compression, hiss, asperity noise and much more. Reproduction systems will also induce their fingerprint: wow, flutter, random high-frequency loss, crosstalk between channels, stereo unbalances and other.

All of these little quirks and random fluctuations have been modelled meticulously. Cassette imprints instant nostalgia, movement and analogue feel all around in its path.

Cassette has been designed to be fun, pleasant to the ear and true to the medium.

Baby Audio - Super VHS

Baby Audio wanted this plugin to be like sending your sounds back in time, then re-discovering them on a worn-out VHS tape 30 years later. All with the click of a single button, right inside your DAW.

The result is six unique effects coming together in a versatile signal chain. Super VHS will add some lofi authenticity to whatever clean sound you run through it — from a subtle touch of character to extreme sonic twists that leave your head spinning. Each effect has just a single control, but multiple parameters under the hood, allowing you to find endless combinations to transform your synths, samples, guitars, drums, vocals and beyond.

Effects Overview:

  • STATIC: A synthesized hum, generated by a pink noise oscillator mixed with a digital saw wave. 
  • HEAT: A warm sounding saturation algorithm inspired by ‘consumer-grade’ tape machines from the early 1980s. 
  • SHAPE: A sample rate reducer (with some extras) inspired by 1980s 8-bit samplers. 
  • MAGIC: A lush “Juno style” chorus — but modeled with a slightly darker and more detuned tone.
  • DRIFT: An internal LFO creating unpredictable pitch and time fluctuations, ranging from ‘natural’ to ‘supernatural’. 
  • WASH: A grainy, unnatural sounding, hall reverb, inspired by digital rack effects from the VHS-era. 
  • MIX: Controls the over-all wet/dry balance. 
  • OUTPUT: Controls the global output. 
  • HIDDEN PROCESSING: High shelf EQ attenuation, bit-crusher, limiter.

denise - Bad Tape

The Bad Tape is the next plugin from denise audio. denise like to describe it as a tape harming effect plugin for extreme tape artefacts. The inspiration for the Bad Tape came from denise team member Enrico 'nrec' Tiberi: “I was using a lot of my old Akai 4000 DS MK2 reel to reel tape recorder pressing the tape to slow it down as an effect and that made me want a plugin that could control how to break the sound without having to use my fingers each time and without all the cables and fuss that analogue hardware inevitably brings”.

Combining a good old vintage tape sound with harming features makes the Bad Tape a very creative and versatile tool. Press the detune button for slow-downs and speed-ups, or use wow and shake to make it go in and out of tune and go off-grid periodically. Use the mix knob to create tracks that are heavily saturated and detuned, with additional interesting tape artifacts like hiss, squeal and harm.

Features

  • Mix: Smoothly mix in different extreme tape artefacts with great precision.
  • Detune (Tape stop): Slow down the tape in real-time, as if you would press your finger on the tape reel.
  • Wobble & Shake: Randomly detune the pitch of your track like your tape machine has an inconsistent playback speed.
  • Harm: Introduce failing tape artefacts with subtle bit-crushing.
  • Squeal & Noize: Add old tape machine noises for character and vibe.
  • Colour & Speed: Adjust the colour and speed of the tape for a unique flavour.
  • Saturate your tracks for that good old vintage tape sound. Warm and smooth character due to hysteresis emulation.
  • Comes with presets for synth, drums, bass and classic tape-style effects.
  • Low CPU usage & works offline without dongles or complex licence managers.
