    Hello,

    Does anyone know a nice way to make the famous tape stop/start sound effect?
    It would be handy to have in direct FCPX so you could work with it visually to match music slow down to a halt exactly where its needed.

    Thanks

    Thanks Dave,

    I have googled that A LOT earlier but not found anything that can be used within FCPX.
    That's why i asked about it here :rolleyes:

    What do you mean it can't be used in FCPX? I'm sure any number of those links will give you an .mp3, .wav, etc.

    My thoughts as well.

    I'm not looking for sound effects or songs with the effect.
    I'm looking for a plug-in that can do the effect on music tracks.

    It would be great to have direct inside of FCPX (for timing purpose) instead of having to have to do that in an external program.
    But maybe that's how it has to be done? :(

    What he's doing there is akin to using time-remapping/time shift in a video NLE. I'm not familiar with FCPXs audio tools, but you should be able to do this in most NLEs with proper keyframing.

    You don't have to do it in an external program, well not much anyway. Download one of the videos, extract the audio using Quicktime, then put the audio in your FCP project where you want the effect to play. I'm assuming that you can drag in audio tracks the same as iMovie.

    He's actually not looking for a generic sound effect of a tape "scrubbing/slowing." He wants to apply the effect to the audio track(s) in his timeline like the link he posted using Logic. Basically he wants the sound you get when you scrub, or playback your timeline at various speeds. But when you slow down the end of the audio (gradually), it simulates how it sounded on old analog reel to reel systems.

    Thanks pete you explained it perfectly :)

    Like in this video

    (and again at 2:37)

    I'd hoped for this workflow, edit video, add music, do the slow down/up to where it's needed direct from within FCPX.

    But it doesn't seem like it's possible right now.

    Solved

    I found a way to do it within FCPX.

    Blade cut the audio to get a clip you want the stop/start effect to happen.
    "Speed Ramp to 0%" (or from 0%)
    Finally deselect "Preserve Pitch" on that sound clip.

    * You have to do the Speed Ramp before the deselect of Preserve pitch... otherwise it won't be selectable.

    That's good enough for me... moving on :D
