Imagine an electric piano that’s been recorded to a crackly old cassette tape and you’ve pretty much nailed Cassette Roads, a new free lo-fi keyboard plugin from SampleScience.
Behind the scenes there are 65MB of samples, while controls include a muli-LFO, a room reverb, a high-pass/low-pass filter and amplitude range controls. There are also three voice modes: polyphonic, monophonic and legato.
Cassette Roads runs as a VST/AU plugin on PC and Mac. You can download it for free, and there’s also a donationware option. Go and grab it on the SampleScience website.
