    That "Nastalgia plugin" would have to add the sound of talented musicians, vocals with feeling and dynamic arrangements. I'd pay for that.

    yeah - with built in, adjustable line noise and rf interference controls.
    SAW/SAC - finally retired a P4/2gHz after ten great years! Burnin' rubber in 2015 with an Intel Core2 Duo e4700/2.6GHz and the trusty RME Digiface/PCI pack.

    2013 Iowa City JazzFest sets recorded/mixed in SAW with SAC as a front-end mixer for live streaming radio!
    Dr Lonnie Smith Trio w/Jonathan Kreisberg on guitar
    Pharoah Sanders Quartet
    Fred Hersch Trio

    These are post mix sets to single camera video (by Rich Rauch).

    Kids today actually have a nostalgia for cassettes. Mixtapes ONLY ON CASSETTES are a cult interest. So they're actually nostalgic for something they never experienced in real life.

    Fun stuff...
