I love this plugin! reminds me of days past mixing with decks.
I was wondering... how do you set the duration of the brake (in script)?
Cheers :)

Something like:
effect_slider 'slipbrake8' 1 50%
... and then change the 50% to whatever you want

@klaus thanks
@jasonbullen thanks for the love, I use this one a lot too.

64K official downloads for this one, been the fx top spot for a few years now, and I'm about 15 days off hitting 1/2 million total plugin downloads.

just so the info is out there the time is linked to the dial like this
(slider value * slider value) * 12 = time
so slider @ 0.5 would be 3 seconds

Oh hang on, have you looked at the fx gui, part of the joy is length can be automatic beat lengths

thanks people :)

I'm still having troubles with this plugin :(
I have no idea what I'm doing wrong :(
I have tried this code for my custom button:

this does nothing:
effect_slider 'Slipbrake8' 1 50%

this slows down for 12 seconds then stops and starts again after 7 seconds
effect_active 'colorfx' && effect_select 'colorfx' 'Slipbrake8' 10% & effect_colorslider 'colorfx' 10%

this slows down for 12 seconds then stops and starts again after 17 seconds
effect_active 'colorfx' && effect_select 'colorfx' 'Slipbrake8' 1 10% & effect_colorslider 'colorfx' 1 10%

Please help me with this wicked plugin :)

This isn't made for colorfx,
1 colorfx didn't exist when it was made.
2 colorfx become active when the dial moves off half way

try a button with this

effect_slider 'Slipbrake8' 1 50% & effect_active 'Slipbrake8'

thanks for that :)
It works :)
But, is it normal to do the brake then restart playing after a few seconds?

check the fx gui, it sounds like you have "wait" engaged.
The slider was actually an after thought, intended use is using the beat length presets [with the actual time calculated when the fx is switched on]

thanks heaps :)
Could you please help me a little more :)
If I use the popup dialog - it seems to ignore the "Length" control. It seems to always reset at 1.08 seconds.
I have tried clicking the "FX" SLIPBRAKE8 button and also my custom button that calls the plugin.

I would love to click the button and it slows down and stops - then not start playing it again.
I would also love to set the slow duration to 4 beats (or even 8 beats).
Is this possible? Can I do it all from my script?

Many Thanks :)

A pound?! I'd be on £50K a month! [don't tell HMRC], I'd be happy with a penny XD
[...Or something from the "Atomix old controller mountain"...]

Hey locodog thanks for uploading the slipbrake effect its a really cool feature to have in VDJ
I just got some questions though how do I make it or program the effect to my preference i just wanted it to activate the effect when I press it
and then not automatically brings back the music until i press the effect again is their a way to do that?

As for any addon in VDJ : Settings ☛ Extensions
for this one
Settings ☛ Extensions ☛ Effects ☛ Audio Fx ☛ Slipbrake8

"instruction how to find and use it?" : here ! there is no other better infos but comment thread

Inviato Wed 16 Sep 20 @ 10:34 am
Yeah, it was installed already, thanx anyway

Found to use it in the droplist of Sound Fx where to find Flanger, Wah-Wah, Reverb

I thought is was a function to the play/pause button similar to the start/stop button on the SL1200/10 where you have to push start button to get record spinnin' again.
Or the long time release, where you put the power switch to off and let it go spin a while.

So function wasn't where I expected to find it.
