AudioThing has released version 1.2 of Outer Space, an audio effect plugin that offers a faithful emulation of the vintage Space Echo tape echo machine made in the early seventies. The update includes various improvements and fixes.

AudioThing Outer Space 1.2

As the original unit, Outer Space features a tape echo section with three playback heads and a spring reverb tank.

We have modelled three different tape frequency responses and saturations, along with all the analog imperfections of tape recording/playback. We have also modelled the ballistic response of the delay rate (repeat rate) which can create eerie pitch shifts (due to the Doppler effect), one of the classic tape echo-based sound effects.

Changes in Outer Space v1.2

  • Improved: Clear Buffer on Playback/Reset of the Host.
  • Improved: Dropdown panel stays open/closed as selected by the user.
  • Improved: Partial support for retina displays.
  • Added: Online Authorization Form.
  • Fixed: Gain inconsistencies when changing samplerate on some hosts.
  • Fixed: Meta-parameter (Repeat Rate) issue.
  • Fixed: Phase issue when Pre-Amp is enabled.
  • Fixed: Random crash on Mojave with Logic Pro 10.4.3.

The plugin is available for Windows and Mac in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats.

Regularly 69 USD/EUR, Outer Space is on sale for 59 USD/EUR until February 12th at AudioThing and distributor Plugin Boutique.
