Baby Audio has announced the release of Spaced Out, a lush wet-FX generator built for sending your sounds and vocals into weightless, heavenly orbit.
The plugin combines a crystalline reverb engine with a wealth of modulation options and a 16-step delay sequencer. In total, more than 50 individual effects come together in a singular creative experience with endless outcomes and zero sub-menus.
Spaced Out hosts an automatic ‘Generate’ function, which will create new textures at the click of a button and give you fresh ideas for where to take your tracks. It features two main modules: “Echoes” is a grid-based delay sequencer that lets you dial-in up to 16 sonically flavored tap delays in an intuitive way. “Space” is a reverb/modulation hybrid that lets you create dreamy and otherworldly reflections by mixing a pristine algorithmic reverb with four custom-designed modulation programs.
It is no secret that we at BABY Audio are obsessed with the quirks, sounds and simplicity of vintage analog gear. With every software product we make, we hope to offer a little bit of that same hands-on experience and instant gratification. Never by emulating the past — but by tapping into its spirit to invent something new.
With Spaced Out, we asked ourselves this: How would we design a “Space Echo” effect today, almost 50 years after the original, with the abundance of computer power and algorithmic complexity at our disposal?
We set out to create an effect as fun, flavored and futuristic for the 21st century as the Space Echo was for its own time. It’s been an epic journey and we’re proud to have returned with our most complex plugin to date.
Spaced Out comes loaded with 125 presets created by BABY Audio and some friends of the house, including:
- Filip Nikolic (Turbotito, Poolside, Azealia Banks).
- Tushar Apte (Nicki Minaj, Noah Cyrus, BTS).
- Richie Beretta (Beyoncé, Diplo, Jillionaire).
- John Nathaniel (One Republic, Switchfoot, Kygo).
- Anthony Saffery (Portugal. The Man, Dirty Vegas, Cornershop).
The plugin is fully resizable and comes with two color schemes (light and dark).
