VST/AU plugin bundle
24th November 2016
Bedroom Producers Blog has
released BPB Cassette Drums, a freeware drum
machine VST/AU plugin bundle based on the Cassette
606, Cassette 808 and Cassette 909 drum sample
Cassette Drums is a freeware VST and AU plugin
bundle consisting of three individual plugins:
Cassette 606 VST, Cassette 808 VST and Cassette 909
VST. The plugins were designed and developed by
Crimson Merry, whose work can be followed on
Instagram and Twitter. The included plugins are
compatible with any PC and Mac based digital audio
workstation capable of hosting VST or AU plugins.
Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.
The instruments are based on our free Cassette 606,
Cassette 808 and Cassette 909 sample packs,
featuring the sounds provided by Edgar Maguyon,
Gregor Zemljic and Reddit user Anderson303. Each
plugin comes with a set of three drum kits: Clean,
Warm and Hot. The Clean kits are based on the raw,
unprocessed recordings of Roland TR series drum
machines, whereas the Warm and Hot kits feature the
saturated drum hits that were re-sampled from an
audio cassette deck.
Each plugin features a customized user interface
with direct access to volume and release parameters
for each drum hit. It is also possible to route the
drums to individual outputs if you’d like to process
them separately in your digital audio workstation of
choice. A global volume is also available, as well
as on on-screen keyboard for quick and easy playback
of the included sounds.
To install the plugins on your computer, simply
extract the downloaded ZIP archive’s contents to the
default VST or AU plugins folder on your system.
Make sure that all of the files from the archive are
extracted to the same folder.
