Cassette Keys.01 - Multi-Format Bundle

Inst Bundle by THEPHONOLOOP

The Idea & Process

It's a unique mixture of physical modelling and fm synths recorded on a cassette with an old & wonky cassette recorder. It has a range from C0 to E6 and 4 carefully designed velocity layers. The GUI is very simple (Kontakt version), yet useful and almost synth-like - so just like its predecessor Cassette Piano, it’s very easy and fun to work with.

Every note of this instrument has been carefully de-noised with a high quality algorithm to avoid noise stacking when playing more than one note. Noise can still be added with the noise slider - 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

  • 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
  • Simple, One Page Interface: Everything is laid out on one page allowing fast sound design possibilities
  • Simulated Round Robin: Makes notes sound realistic when played ostinato (even when playing fast)
  • Variety of Sounds: With this instrument you can easily create some weird sounds, and there are already 30 presets included (Kontakt & Ableton Live 9 only) to get you started
