What is OCS-45? OCS-45 Cassette Simulation. This plugin simulates real life cassette tapes. It’s been designed to add lo-fi, vintage feel to your sound. It’s rich set of controls allow you to tweak settings exactly the way you need to achieve that low fidelity sound. Predefined presets make it easy to find a perfect setting for your sound.
LOTS OF USEFUL FEATURES
Wow/flutter section adds that vintage pitch wobble effect making your sounds feel like they are flowing.
Rich Distortion Panel
Add warmth to your sound and make it alive with precisely programmed 5 distortion types.
Each cassette can be modified to have reduced quality (for that lo-fi sound). Dry/wet knob will help you set a perfect amount of the effect that cassette has on the sound. Mono will take you to old single-speaker times.
Add noise to your sound to simulate real-life cassette hiss or low fidelity hardware.
Real-life cassettes have been known for their tendency to cut out short amounts of sound periodically, due to damaged tape. Our dropouts module does the same thing separately for both channels and runs independently on input signal and noise generator.
4 DIFFERENT CASSETTE TYPES
I Ferric Cassette
Ferric or ‘normal’ cassettes were historically the first, the most common and the least expensive; they dominated the pre recorded cassette market.
II Chromium Type Cassette
Type II have, on average, a higher signal-to-noise ratio than quality
Type I tapes. Type II has been historically known as ‘chromium dioxide tape’ or simply ‘chrome tape’. High frequency response has been increased.
III FeCr Cassette
Introduced in 1973, double-layer ferrichrome tapes. They were advertised as ‘the best of both worlds’ – combining good low-frequency MOL of microferric tapes with good treble performance of chrome tapes.
IV Metal Cassette
Were introduced in 1979, they are more bassy and include louder high frequencies.
You don’t need to tweak anything in order to achieve perfect sound. All you have to do is to browse through the built in presets and choose the one you like.
