Product Overview

It's a unique mixture of physical modelling and fm synths recorded on a cassette with an old & wonky cassette recorder. It has a range from C0 to E6 and 4 carefully designed velocity layers. The GUI is very simple, yet useful and almost synth-like - so just like its predecessor Cassette Piano, it’s very easy and fun to work with. Feel free to check out the introduction video to hear and see it in action:

If you're unsure whether this is right for you, here's a short example of what's included in Cassette Keys


Every note of this instrument has been carefully denoised with a high quality algorithm to avoid noise stacking when playing more than one note. Noise can still be added with the noise slider - it’s much more flexible this way and allows the ability to adjust the volume of the noise independently whilst also applying parameters such as filtering.

It also creates a more realistic sound, so when playing a five voice chord, only one sample of noise instead of five stacked on top of each other will be heard.


  • 848 MB of samples (452 MB after lossless Kontakt compression)
  • Simulated round-robin
  • REV (reverse) mode
  • Mono mode
  • 4 velocity layers
  • One-page interface for easy and fast sound design
  • 30 presets


Full version of Kontakt 5.5.1 (or higher) is required - you can load this instrument in Kontakt Player but it'll work only for limited time


  • Useful and fun production tool
  • If you like vintage sounds and you're looking for something to enhance your production toolbox, then this product will be for you.
  • Simple, one page interface
  • Everything is laid out on one page allowing fast sound design possibilities.
  • Simulated Round Robin
  • Makes notes sound realistic when played ostinato (even when playing fast) - check out the introduction video to hear it in action.
  • Variety of sounds
  • With this instrument you can easily create some weird sounds and there are already 30 presets included to get you started.
