Cassette Keys: Vintage Pianos & Lofi Synths is an exploration into refined live recording of classic instruments fused with contemporary sampling and sound design techniques. Discover over 400 keys loops and one shots including classic lofi synths, clean hifi pianos, 100s of complex rolled chords, resampled dusty Rhodes and rich Hammond organs. Built to evoke hiphop and trap sonics but with the character to inspire any genre.
Instruments include a vintage Steinway grand piano, baby grand and 1890’s upright piano, the full spectrum of Fender Rhodes models, original Hammond Organ amped through a Leslie cabinet and classic Wurlitzer electric piano. The synth lineup includes some of our personal favourites Juno 106, Moog SubPhatty, Jupiter 8, DX7 and on the lofi end the Yamaha Portasound VSS480 and PSS480!
We recorded and engineered professional session musicians at some of London’s best studios and live spaces including The Pool Recording Studio, Livingston Studio 1, Dock Street Studio and the CPA London Studio. We made full use of vintage, highend and unique instruments, microphones, preamps and outboard gear.
At the CPA studio we curated the most interesting and inspiring performances from the sessions and mixed the clean audio to taste. We then went to work resampling through our collection of various vintage tape formats including original Revox reeltoreel, Tascam Portastudio, 8Track, modified cassette recorders and Walkmans and even a 1980s Fisher Price toy cassette recorder!
Finally the audio was resampled again, effected, pitched and chopped with a selection of boutique fx pedals, hardware saturation and digital emulations creating a wide range of tones, textures and nostalgic sonic character.
High quality inspiration ready to drop into your DAW or sampler of choice.
