In these days of ultra-polished digital sound, it's perhaps no surprise that some producers yearn for something a little more crusty. Enter SketchCassette, an affordable plug-in that emulates the sound of old 4-track cassette recorders. If your music career started long enough ago, you'll remember the compromises but also the character that came from working with these machines.
Inspired by 4-track cassette recorders, SketchCassette is designed to introduce a wide array of lo-fi tape effects into your mixes. From subtle warble to unearthed-from-the-attic destruction, SketchCassette is your one-stop-shop for anything and everything cheap tape.
