Unstable, unclean, and heavily mangled - Tape Haze 5 is a collection of 107 tape-drenched WAVs. The sounds have been heavily processed via tape splicing, pitch-shifting, generative techniques, and analog saturation - to push the tone shaping magic of cassette tape to its limits. Expect pitch modulation, tape noise, drop outs, stereo imaging, filtering, and distortion.
This pack blurs the usual divisions; the tones might also be loops, chords might also be melodies, loops might also be soundscapes. These sounds are textural and unpredictable, inviting you to dissect and dismantle them.
- 20 one-shot tones
- 41 chords
- 24 melodies
- 14 percussion loops
- 8 one-shot kick drums
107 samples in total.
