Analog Tape Glitch VST? Saturation Plugins

Analog Tape Glitch VST?

I'm looking for a plugin that generates more "analog" kinds of glitches rather than digital sounding ones. I have some Fabfilter and Audio Damage plugins that do a great job of glitching and distorting but it all sounds digital. I also have several tape emulators like the J37 but they don't really mimic those short, extreme tape mishaps.

I know the obvious answer is to stretch certain parts out and mess with the pitch but I have a lot of audio to wreck and I wanted to see if anyone had an idea first.

Really appreciate any help!

What do you mean by glitch and mishap? Do you mean glitches like tapestop? If so, get tapestop.

I mean something that generates those weird pitch and speed changes. I've found a good amount of "audio destruction" VSTs but they all sound very digital for lack of a better word.

Thanks for the reply though.

I don't remember any "glitches" when recording with tape but maybe you want tapestop.

Sorry, I wasn't specific enough. I mean more like if you watch an old VHS tape, there are usually quite a few unique audio "glitches" in the tape audio.

Maybe you want something like this...

ToneBytes » Tape Noise

However, I think it's made with SynthEdit, and is a 32-bit plug-in. Will probably never be a 64-bit VST2 or VST3.

You might be looking for a bit of "wow and flutter", use tape delay emulations with controls for theses effect, echo boy as mentioned and uhe satin would be able to pull this off.

This clip will show you how with satin.

Hmmm, it's not tape but

https://www.izotope.com/en/products/...ign/vinyl.html

This can do the pitch and speed changes with different curves, more subtle and realistic than crazy thoug. It's free.
