  • Harnessing the power of the symphony through tape

    Prepare for orchestral time travel - go from intimate solo players to a full symphony — in an instant — resampled through 200 cassette players, all in the same virtual instrument.

    We've gone back to the early days of tape sampling and taken inspiration from the sound world of the mellotron, and then blown that out of proportion - capturing strings, brass, woodwind and percussion and resampling through a custom built symphony of cassette players.
