A monophonic MIDI keyboard-controlled cassette player with the following features:
  • 17 semitone range
  • Potentiometer for sweeping up and down the motor speed smoothly
  • Pitch-bends control the motor speed
  • LFO that is mapped to motor speed delta values
  • LFO includes user-controllable depth and speed
  • Mute switch remembers the last motor speed value pre-mute
It sounds quite okay (dependent on source material).

I can't make up my mind what it actually sounds like: maybe a cross between a castrato and an ondes martenos. It's very good though. :)
