Cassette is an audio plugin that emulates the sound of vintage cassette tapes and decks. It has been carefully modelled after exhaustive analysis of a high number of sound signals recorded into real tapes. As a result, we get the same sound and behaviour of the original units.
Magnetic tape is not a sterile media. Because of that, it will impart its own sound signature to signals recorded into it. These include a different frequency response, frequency dependent saturation, high-frequency compression, hiss, asperity noise and much more. Reproduction systems will also induce their fingerprint: wow, flutter, random high-frequency loss, crosstalk between channels, stereo unbalances and other. All of these Thugs - Lazy K (2) - Butta Mixxin Rican (Cassette) quirks and random fluctuations have been modelled meticulously.

It's and the city of hip hop is collapsing. Once-proud buildings crumble to heaps of sameness. Tough-posing gangstas torch art museums for insurance money and speed off in platinum-rimmed Lexuses.
