Cassette tape is a medium that many bands recorded their sound on before mastering them. I wanted to reproduce this effect using U-h Satin so I made a preset that approximates that.
The U-he Satin plugin does not come with a preset for this, but I can choose the cassette speed of 1 and 7/8 inches per second (i.p.s.). I’ve made a preset for it and you can download it. Here is what I did to replicate it and how I use it.
I slowed down the tape speed to the lowest setting that is exactly what a cassette is recorded on.
I put this instance of Satin on the synths bus.
I use a different instance of Satin on the master bus to give HX Pro type of tape effect. There is another preset for HX Pro type of tape effect described here [click].
U-he Satin is an excellent plugin for simulating tape and you can find it on the U-he website.
