Kilohearts has published a new introduction video for its free tape speed effect plugin Tape Stop.

Around the time that dinosaurs roamed the earth, magnetic tape was the hottest mode of storing recorded audio. Naturally, cave people found that starting and stopping the tape during playback would lead to interesting effects.

kHs Tape Stop simulates this arcane technology in a simple way, allowing you to get great spindown/speedup sounds at the touch of a button. What’s next? Harnessing the power of fire?

Available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats for Windows and Mac, Tape Stop is free along with 30+ other effects as part of the Kilohearts Essentials Collection.
