HoRNet releases Cassette644: A faithful recreation of a vintage 4 tracks cassette recorder

HoRNet Cassette644 plugin harks back to the hissy days of 4-track home recording. The plugin is a new way to make your musical life a little more lo-fi.

Whether you look back happily on the days when you recorded on a 4-track cassette machine or simply want to find out why they’re so fondly remembered, HoRNet Cassette644 plugin might help you to scratch that nostalgic/curious itch.

This promises to emulate the sonic characteristics of three classic cassette tapes – Type I (Normal), Type II (Chrome), and Type IV (Metal) – each of which sounds slightly different. All are designed to give your music a splash of lo-fi goodness.

We’re promised realistic hiss emulation, a three-band EQ for precise tone shaping, variable tape speed control and versatile routing options. You can link multiple instances for that authentic multitrack experience, and there are built-in VU monitors for visual monitoring.

And the good news is that, because it’s all virtual, this tape will never get chewed up.

Cassette644 runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats and costs €17. Find out more on the HoRNet website.
