DAW Cassette

Tape Deck Emulation

macOS/Windows $39.99 and iPad/iPhone $12.99

Bring your sound back to the golden age of cassette tapes (minus the tangle)

Put your music on tape

DAW Cassette brings back the magic era of the 1980:s by emulating the sound of a tape deck. Saturation, distortion, noise, wobble, it's all there. While there's no real rational logic to it, the sound color gives us chills down the spines, (or it might be the mullet haircut that tickles). Fresh. Choose your preferred level of cassetteness with the different controls for input/output gain, tape/motor/head quality and tape/noise type. Now, look in the mirror and get stunned by your new mullet haircut.
