Baby Audio Releases Comeback Kid Analog-Style Delay Plug-In

Comeback Kid is Baby Audio's effort to create the ultimate go-to delay effect'"with plenty of hands-on tone shaping controls and a warm and vibey sound.  

Of all the essential mix tools, the delay may be the most creatively satisfying. So we asked ourselves: Could we take one of our favorite effects and give it an upgrade?

We set out to develop our vision for a warmer sounding, more inspiring delay plugin: One that lets you design your own delay sounds through a versatile selection of onboard flavoring tools. Easily and intuitively.

Comeback Kid includes everything you'd expect from a new go-to delay — plus some unexpected extras. 

Delays that work in your flavor.

Inspired by our Super VHS plugin, Comeback Kid offers a flexible palette of one-knob effects to take full control of your delay signal. And with no sub-menus or hidden features, everything you need is right in front of you. Even some inspiration:

The plugin comes loaded with 61 presets created by friends of BABY Audio - including:

· Mick Schultz: Grammy Nominated, Multi-Platinum, producer for Rihanna, Jeremih etc.

· Anthony Saffery: Billboard #1 engineer for Portugal. The Man, Dirty Vegas, Cornershop etc.
