Baby Audio has announced the release of Super VHS, a plugin that hosts a signal chain of six unique “one-knob” effects, aiming to bring some 1980s lo-fi magic to the DAW.
Here is what the guys at Baby Audio say about their new multi-effect plugin:
“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 lo-fi spirit of our favorite decade — and bring it into a new decade.
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 lo-fi 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.”
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.
Super VHS is available for macOS and Windows as VST, VST3, AU and AAX, 64-bit and 32-bit. For a limited time only, it costs $29 (introductory offer, reg. $49). You can download a free trial to test it out.
