Baby Audio has announced the release of its new Super VHS plugin, a versatile channel strip featuring six unique one-knob effects to bring you the lofi magic of the 1980s.

From a subtle touch of character to extreme sonic twists that leave your head spinning, Super VHS allows you to find endless combinations to transform your synths, samples, guitars, drums, vocals and beyond.

Baby Audio 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.

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 features

  • 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.

The plugin is on sale at Baby Audio and distributor Plugin Boutique for the intro price of $29 USD until December 31st, 2019 (regular $49 USD). It comes in VST/VST3, AU and AAX formats.

A free trial version is available for download.
