AudioThing has updated its Outer Space tape echo emulation for Windows and Mac.

Outer Space is a faithful emulation plugin of a famous vintage tape echo made in the early seventies. As the original unit, Outer Space features an 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’ve 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 v1.0.5

  • Added: Wet Only Lock function.
  • Fixed: Mode selector showing wrong value when automated.
  • Fixed: WaveLab issue with Synced presets.
  • Fixed: Pro Tools 12.7.1+ CPU bug.
  • Fixed: Bypass Automation CPU bug.

Outer Space for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available from AudioThing and distributor Plugin Boutique for 49 EUR.
