Default Tape Stop effect...

Hey guys. I'm looking for a Tape Stop effect, that simulates a slowing tape reel, that can be automated. I had a VST plug, but don't want to end up having to get the wrapper for just this (not to mention the automation may not work right with the wrapper...?). Anyone know if one??

"Vari-Fi allows processing of disk files to create the effect of audio changing speed to or from a complete stop."

http://www.digidesign.com/products/d...roduct_id=1009

That was from the description of Vari-Fi on the D-Fi info page. It is an audiosuite only plugin that is included in the D-Fi package. It should do what you are looking for just fine.

If you have a sample player assign your portion of audio to the whole keyboard range and pitchbend. remember ! octave down = half speed

best

Vari-Fi will do this. I have used it for exactly that effect. It can imitate tape slowing down to a stop or speeding up from a stop. Very easy to use. You simply highlight the segment of a region yo want to process, designate whether you want it to speed up or slow down, and click PROCESS. To the best of my knowledge, there is no limit to the length, so you can have it slow down over the course of a full minute, or go from full speed to a dead stop in seconds.

I should point out, though, you can't really automate it. You can, however, chop the audio up into multiple regions and apply it to each one.

Sounds good. Little more work since its audio suite only. Would have to process and undo and reprocess til I got it just right for the song, but oh well... Thanks all!!

I have used the Reason NN-19 for this effect with good results. In my case, I set the root note to C5 and pitch bend range to 24 steps (Reason's max). I then triggered C3 with the pitch wheel all the way up (played at normal speed), then ramped the pitch wheel rapidly all the way down (pitch goes down 4 octaves / speed to 1/16x) and released the note just as I hit the bottom of the ramp. I set my amp envelope to instant-on instant-off.

wow, thats too much work for me. Its probably easier if you know reason, but I don't. And that Vari-Fi plug-in seems very expenxive. The "Tape-Stop" plug-in I have for cubase was awesome and free! Some guy made it...
