THEPHONOLOOP has released version 1.1 of Cassette Piano, a piano instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The idea for Cassette Piano was born when I’ve decided to create my first commercial Kontakt instrument with proper GUI and a script behind it. I wanted it to be something fairly simple but still useful and fun to use, so I’ve decided to use my digital piano and (since I love those type of sounds) my old & wonky cassette recorder to create this old school sounding piano instrument with interface almost like a synth.

Changes in Cassette Piano v1.1

  • Added REV (reverse) mode: In this mode you can adjust the start point of every sample with Attack slider in Volume section – it’s best to keep it fairly low in this mode.
  • Added Mono mode: Useful when playing legato and you don’t want your notes to overlap.
  • 10 new presets.
  • Fixed clipping when using Chorus effect.
  • Better scaling of Attack slider in Volume section.

The Cassette Piano for Kontakt 5.5.1 (or higher) is available for purchase for 16 EUR at THEPHONOLOOP and from Plugin Boutique. The update is available as a free download for all existing customers.
