ILLFORMED (AKA DBLUE) TAPESTOP
If there’s one thing we all miss from the days of sticky tape and rust, it must be the sound of the tape deck being shut down mid-flight. Right? This Windows-only little head case was brought to you by the same fellow responsible for dblue Glitch. So you can be sure that the goal is not one of, shall we say, ‘sonic purity’.
TapeStop may be the ultimate one-off – let’s face it, once you’ve dropped it into a mix, you daren’t use it a second time – and as such, it’d be wasteful to saddle it with a GUI. Nope, for TapeStop you get whatever your 32-bit VST host gives you, but it’s the sound that counts. http://illformed.org
