How to make lo-fi tape effects: Using vibrato before overdrive

In this episode of Tonal Teamwork I show off my latest tonal revelation, which is running vibrato and overdrive at the end of your pedalboard. By running your other effects into a vibrato and then an overdrive/distortion you can simulate the warbly warm tones of recording straight to tape. So if you’re a fan of William Basinski, Tycho or Boards of Canada, then this tone trick should be right up your alley.
