You can emulate with Sampler and the lfo mapped to pitch at like 3% or less and then map another lfo to the first lfo rate to randomise the effect.

Or you could look at the new UAD Studer plug...but thats the expensive route...

http://www.vacuumsound.de/plugins.html - though mono-> stereo & rather subtle

Or try OS X's own "AUPitch" & automate pitch… (hold alt-key for finer resolution)

just use the included frequency shifter in multiple instances. lfo sine or random, small amounts, flutter is around 20 hz, wow as low as long is the radius you want to emulate. always prefer ableton included effect: they are optimized and don't waste latency

For 15 euros you can get TB ReelBus. Excellent tape emulation with some serious wow & flutter.
Professional Shark Jumper.

Actually it is the UAD Ampex that emulates the wow and flutter.
