Which DAW responds closest to Tape when speed is altered?

Author Which DAW responds closest to Tape when speed is altered?
Gringo Starr
I’m looking to speed up or down the BPM of a DAW and have the pitch of all the tracks fluctuate accordingly just like a tape machine would. Is there one DAW that responds the closest to a tape machine in this scenario? Or are they all the same?

its pretty difficult to get close in the box to the tape speed down and pitch down. even each reel to reel is slightly different, and cassette tape recorders are all a bit different - and i reckon its worth looking for low end and cheap tape stuff and trying them out. mostly the machines (they don't have to be high end and expensive!) are unique due to dirty heads, wrong tape, old tape, environmental temperature, tubes, inputs, overloading the inputs, even a quick power up and power down....... and all the broken shit that can go wrong on each unit. Even grabbing the tape by hand, or holding the reels, gives off some fun stuff. chucking a pencil in, is fun, ha.

anyway, as a shitty, low end, tape 'user' i really think ableton looper, fast and slow, is the nicest i have heard with a tape emulation next to it. id go with https://overloud.com/ which is fantastic and low cpu. Also look into teh ableton looper extension - http://www.maxforlive.com/library/device/1440/timestretch-looper
which is like a new style digital tape player or a make noise morphagene


https://www.audiothing.net/effects/reels/, is another nice flavour.

https://www.audiothing.net/effects/outer-space/ is a very close em of the space echo.

dub machines is something i love to bits! alsohttps://www.surrealmachines.com/product/dub-machines-vstau/

Reaper has a little slider to change speed which also changes pitch, which can be smoothly dragged while playing back a track. Also you can set it up such that the scroll wheel will scrub the transport and also create smooth sorta record scratch sounds. And it can be automated.

That’s pretty cool. Didn’t know that was built into Reaper. The scratch effect he does at the end really shows how useful having this control can be. That was a good video.

You just need to remove the letter "s" from the "https" at the beginning of the URL and then wrap it with [video][/video] tags by selecting the whole URL and then clicking the Video button in the editor (or typing them manually). thumbs up

Do you mean something like this?

Pro Tools' Varispeed is designed to do exactly this.
