We can’t bring the analogue back, but we can make the experience a little more nostalgic using this new pair of applications which made their way to the App Store this week: Vinyl DJ and Cassette Deck.
Vinyl DJ (99c) lets you play songs from your iPhone”s music library using an on-screen record player – and lets you mess with vinyl-replicating sounds such as added dust, crackle, scratch and mechanical noise.
Cassette Deck (99c), on the other hand, does the same thing but using a virtual tape player. This lets you “skin” the image on your screen so the cassettes change as the songs cycle. You also get the delight of watching the tape spin, a virtual eject button and more.
We think these low cost apps could be a little retro fun this Wednesday morning.
