Focusrite Launches Klevgrand DAW Cassette

Focusrite's Plug-in Collective members can download DAW Cassette – which otherwise retails for $40 – for free, and get 40% off everything in the Klevgrand online store.

Klevgrand’s retro-flavored tape deck emulation plug-in brings the nostalgic sound of a hi-fi cassette tape deck to your productions, with plenty of customization options for both the deck itself and the tape running through it.

DAW Cassette’s front and back panel controls make it easy to dial in tape degradation, adjust tape head alignment, reduce motor smoothness, and switch through the very different frequency responses of the Normal, Chrome and Metal tape types. You can even apply variable crosstalk between the left and right channels, skew the angle of the tape head to introduce phase issues, mix in white or pink noise, overdrive the input and further tweak the frequency response with a four-band graphic EQ.

Perfectly evocative in its authentic realization of consumer-grade tape distortion, noise and wobble, DAW Cassette is a must-have for producers of synthwave, chillwave and lo-fi, and sound designers looking to bring a lo-fi, vintage or downright messed-up texture to any audio signal.

Key features:
• Convincing emulation of cassette tape deck and tape
• Normal, Chrome and Metal tape types
• Tape, Head and Motor Quality controls
• Adjustable white/pink noise generator
• Variable channel crosstalk and tape head angle
• Four-band graphic EQ
• Input/Output Gain controls
