Audio examples

At about the same time as dinosaurs roamed the earth, magnetic tape was the hottest way to store recorded audio. Naturally, cave men discovered that starting and stopping the tape while playing back would lead to interesting effects.

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

Tape Stop is one of the devices in the Kilohearts Toolbox bundle.

Product details

  • Stop Time - Time until the tape motor reaches full stop when stopping.

  • Curve - The speed curve of the tape motor starting/stopping.
  • Play - The current state of the tape motor.

The Kilohearts Toolbox

Tape Stop is one of the devices in the Kilohearts Toolbox bundle.

The Kilohearts Toolbox devices all do one thing each, and they do it well. The philosophy behind this is to give our customers access to the building blocks of sound design and from there you can combine them into really interesting effects. In fact, many more esoteric RE:s are basically a few of these effects combined.

If you own a few, or all the Kilohearts Toolbox devices be sure to check out Kilohearts Toolbox Refill, a big pack of diverse combinators exploring the possibilities of the toolbox.
