The story

‘Cassette Mood’ is a result of experimenting with finding a lovely pitched down loop on the Chase bliss ‘Mood’, and firing it (Pretty cranked) into an old 4 track Tascam Porta Two. Enjoy!

  • Funky!

    Super cool and unique! Nailed the GUI look and feel. It is very distinct and I didn't see a way to adjust the wobble of the loop, but the sound is excellent. The low-end reminded me a bit of a bass that would be in a Batman film. I really like the sound.. but I have to need a very specific need for that wobbly watery synth sound.

  • Lots of wobbly character

    The strength of this library is also its weakness; the wobbly character is very unique and distinct, but when it starts to repeat, it gives the library away as a sample. I think if this sound was used sparingly in just the right way, it would be pretty awesome, but the playability is somewhat decreased by the fact that there seems to be only one sample here stretched over all of the keys and velocity levels.

  • A unique lo-fi twist

    This instrument has a unique attitude that you really don't find nor create easily. It's something that won't be used alone though, but it will definitely create a unique twist for your creations.

  • Lo-fi wobble pad :)

    The other reviews are spot-on with their descriptions. I only want to comment because I found a nice hack to workaround the overwhelming amount of wobbles: use the sampler to tune the sample down a few semitones, then transpose the MIDI up to compensate for it. When the samples are pitched down, they play slower, and thus the wobble rate is slower! This makes a nice way to get a little more mileage out of this lovely single sound :)

  • Its a decent instrument!

    This is a cool instrument, mostly within a two octave range in the middle of the keyboard. Where the sample has been stretched, the tape warble speeds up with it and it spoils what is otherwise a great sound. The recording quality is as you'd expect from a tape recorder and the pitch warble is great. Play in that middle two octaves and create some wonderful tape drones.
