Tapestop re-creates the time-stretched sound that happens when you press the stop button ...
  • PLAY/STOP button: Trigger a slowdown/speed up.
  • MODE:
    EP = A normal slowdown.
    TD = Do a "search position" at the end.
    T = Toggle PLAY/STOP when PLAY/STOP button is pressed.
    D = Direct A slowdown as long as the PLAY/STOP button is pressed and a speed up on release of the button. Use the D mode when the plugin is automated to get proper(expected) action.
  • UP/DOWN buttons: Indicates direction. If pressed it turns grey and disable the selected direction.
  • SPEED box:
    LEFT click to select DOWN speed.(green)
    RIGHT click to select UP speed.(red) 
  • BLUE show live position in slowdown buffer.
    REALTIME = for live/automation use.
    OFFLINE = will trigger current PLAY/STOP button direction when the plugin resume is called. This is used when you use for example Wavelab and want to process a selected portion in a wave file.
    ON = fade the volume together with the speed.
  • FULL SPEED MUTE: ON = Mute output when full speed is attained. This is desired when you use the plugin as a send effect.
  • UP/DOWN OFF FADE TIME: 0%-100% If a direction is turned off then you can set the fade to zero/full time to avoid clicks.
  • 0%-100% To smooth the re-entrance from slowed buffer to live signal.
  • BUTTON: NORMAL/REVERSED. Some people think backwards and want the PLAY/STOP button to show the "next" state instead of the "is" state.

I like this for concrete sounding experiments. in reaper, you can put a square lfo on the play/stop slider and this will do fun, vintage sounding things to the signal without digital click or, afaict, aliasing. It sounds good combined with the tape simulation plugin here called diabolique. Very nice combo for old, radiophonic sounding weirdness.

I hate this plugin. Stop.play automation is still inverting cause there is no real play/stop mode just trigger mode so in envelope every time play/stop mode is inverting. I hate this is useless.

Sounds good, the interface is very frendly but not very accurate. Eventough could be better, I think It's a must-have, and hope for an update!
