Tape and desintegration

Hi there, which pedals are good for deintergations? Like a VHS tape or a record. Old flutter, wow and broken into bits. Compressed and distorted. For synth / pads / drums / guitar. In stereo.


I have the Shiro Gaffa on most of my boards. Wow and flutter, tape age, bias, and a bunch of other controls gets much of what I like about pedals like the Demedash T-120 and the Recovery Devices Cutting Room Floor. It doesn’t do everything those 2 pedals can do, but it is a good lo-fi tape delay.


I have to try the Shiro Gaffa. Is it possible to use the Tape FX without the delay?

if you try the “broken machine” setting, the delay is very, very short, so you get the weirdness with minimal delay.
