Christopher Mosher has released a software package which allows a more precise recovery method of recovering Cassette tapes with data on them.

Being as most of the tapes created for computers with cassette interfaces were created in the 1970’s the quality of the tapes and the data recovered from them can be quite problematic.

But according to Chris’s Facebook posting, he says, “I’ve tested it on a limited number of images and it has successfully recovered some that wouldn’t load before.”

The software is available as C++ source code on the Github site and is available as a free download, with the package itself being released under the GPL version 3 license. It is designed to run under Mac, Linux and Windows but requires the SDL2 Development Library.
