Hi,
Here's what I am trying to do.
Have a song sound like the power is being cut to the record player.
Pitch and speed drop simultaneously as if the record slows down to a stop.
I have tried making a selection at the end of the clip, dropping pitch and speed, then taking a smaller section from the end and dropping both further, and so on until it reaches the end, but it still doesn't sound right. It's close, but no cookie!
Any thoughts on a better way to do this?
Thanks,
Paul

I have seen/heard a plug in once that did something like that. Sorry, too long ago for my memory to get the facts back. Maybe a search for vinyl or tape simulation plug-ins will help.

I actually wrote a small C program to do something close to that. The
problem I was dealing with was an old-fashioned tape where the spindle
speed remained constant so the tape speed would change as the amount of
tape built up on on the takeup reel. The reverse of what you want, but
I think the code went both ways. Not sure how it work taking it all the
way down to zero.

I did something like that last year. There is a program or plugin where
you can draw a curve and have the speed vary according to the curve,
but I am on the wrong computer to look it up. Will check later this
afternoon and get back to you. I had the speed and frequency of a music
selection increase and then fall to zero. This was the starting sound
effect for the play "Don't drink the water" by Woody Allen.

Paul,

Go to www.soundhack.com and download and install the soundhack
program. It has a batch processing function called varispeed which
does what you want. You will have to read the instruction manual and
play with it, but it works beautifully.
