I don't see why you can't do it with pitch bend. When a record slows down the speed of playback also slows down and as a result the pitch also changes. Exactly the same thing happens with the EXS24 (it does not have any time-stretching algorithms).
(The things to change to make it sound authentic are the automation curve and the pitch bend range.)

Yeah. I wasn't wanting this to develop into a big issue or anything.
The main point for me is that the sampler route somehow doesn't
The curve will be everything, I guess, if you're doing it that way, so
basically I agree with you. To add fuel to an already blazing fire, there
is also the amplitude curve to consider: As a turntable slows, so the
voltage at the pickup decreases. This is far from linear and is a function
of the absolute speed under the needle. (On a 12" disk, without any
cutting compensation, the voltage output by the pickup at the run-out
would only be about 45% of that at the run-in.)
So, for a record stop effect, you have to emulate the amplitude tending
to zero as the "speed" tends to zero. This is probably another reason
why sampler-based attempts don't sound "real".
