Both engine and transmission increase oil pressure with increased RPM's. If your oil is ok in both, try to use a listening device to localize the noise at either the transmission pan or top of the engine valve covers. A stethescope or long extension bar at your ear helps transfer the noise. Check the oil on both. Ok
Tapping noises can turn into knocking noises quickley. May need servicing.
