Tapebrake is a freeware VST plugin which emulates the tape stop effect often used in DJ mixes. While the effect may sound cheesy in some cases, it can work as an interesting detail if used sparingly on individual tracks such as vocals and drums. When pushing the STOP button, the playback will stop and the pitch will slowly decrease until the volume goes completely silent.
It is also possible to adjust the length of the tape stop effect. The length is automatically synced to the host program’s tempo.
