New York, November 7th 2019 — Two and a half busy months after releasing its first plugin, I Heart NY - Parallel Compressor, Baby Audio is excited to announce the follow up. Here's what they say about Super VHS.
"As kids of the 1980s, we have always been drawn to the sound of slightly out-of-tune synths, warm tape saturation, gritty samples and grainy reverbs. So we set out on a mission to capture the lofi spirit of our favorite decade — and bring it into a new decade."
Super VHS hosts six unique ‘one-knob effects’, coming together in a versatile channel strip."
STATIC: Static noise synthesizer. HEAT: ‘Analog tape’ saturator. SHAPE: Sample rate reducer inspired by 1980s 8-bit samplers. MAGIC: Dark and lush chorus FX.
DRIFT: Pitch fluctuation LFO. WASH: ‘Bad Hall’ reverb. + Internal EQ, bit-crusher and limiter.
We wanted this plugin to be like sending your sounds back in time, then re-discovering them on a worn-out VHS tape 30 years later. All with the click of a single button, right inside your DAW.
Super VHS will add some 1980s lofi authenticity to whatever clean sound you run through it — from a subtle touch of character to extreme sonic twists that leave your head spinning. Each effect has just a single control - but multiple parameters under the hood - allowing you to find endless combinations to transform your synths, samples, guitars, drums, vocals and beyond.
