No-Fi Tape Loop Music Studio For Mac & Windows

Developer Giorgio Sancristoforo has introduced No-Fi, a virtual tape loop studio for Mac & Windows.

No-Fi is a standalone “tape loop music studio”, featuring one mixer and five cassette recorders, plus a reverb and delay.

No-Fi simulates the sound of cassette loops, with tape saturation, noises and playback irregularities that characterize the sound of true lo-fi loops. You can choose between Ferric, Chrome and Ferrochrome tapes, add background hiss, tape age and saturation. You can also control azimuth errors, wow, flutter, tape catch and speed.

The input channels can be used with synthesizers, guitars, bass, microphones, electroacoustic instruments etc, and you can load VST/AU plugins, such as a guitar amp. You can even load virtual VST instrument sand play it with your MIDI keyboard.

The cassette tape loops can record up to 1 hour of sound each, or you can import loops from your computer.

Pricing and Availability:

No-Fi is available now for Mac for 19.50€. A Windows version is also expected to be available soon.

  1. Mmm, interesting.
    I’ve enjoyed messing around with ambient tape loops on various 4 tracks that I’ve had over the years. It can be a bit fiddly at times though.
    This seems like a nice in the box solution.
    Has anyone tried it yet?
    Will have to wait for the Windows before I can.

  2. Posted this before…
    had some install issues with another of Giorgio’s instruments(some weird Apple security thing) and he took the time to personally help me get it resolved. Very rare these days. Thanks again and also for the cool stuff you design/create, much appreciated and enjoyed.
