Is it any good?

(It's strange how we used to take so much time and effort trying to overcome the limitations of tape, and now there's a plug-in to do the opposite :? )

A few bugs, but yes it does work: controllable wow, flutter, dropouts, tape-chew, hiss.

I prefer sketch cassette, but that doesn't work in Audcaity & it's not free, (but reasonably priced).

Just noticed they do other free plugins

The "Chow Centaur" distortion effect on "neural" is very good emulation of analogue if the "Gain" knob is turned above 0.8
A double dose: "traditional" then "neural" is very walkie-talkie ...
