A ‘lofi flavor’ beast – Feel the lofi vibes of the VHS era.

As kids of the 80s 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.

Meet a complex algorithm with eight simple knobs. We named it ‘Super’ for its powers and ‘VHS’ for its sound.

Features

A chain of six meticulously crafted ‘one-knob’ effects:

  • 1. STATIC — Static noise synthesizer
  • 2. HEAT — ‘Analog tape’ saturator
  • 3. SHAPE — Sample rate reducer
  • 4. MAGIC — Dark chorus FX
  • 5. DRIFT — Pitch fluctuation LFO
  • 6. WASH — ‘Bad hall’ reverb
  • + Internal/hidden EQ, bit-crusher and limiter.

Rewind to the VHS Era

Baby Audio 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.

The result is six unique effects coming together in a versatile signal chain. Super VHS will add some lofi 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.

Effects Overview

  • STATIC: A synthesized hum, generated by a pink noise oscillator mixed with a digital saw wave.
  • HEAT: A warm sounding saturation algorithm inspired by ‘consumer-grade’ tape machines from the early 1980s.
  • SHAPE: A sample rate reducer (with some extras) inspired by 1980s 8-bit samplers.
  • MAGIC: A lush “Juno style” chorus — but modeled with a slightly darker and more detuned tone.
  • DRIFT: An internal LFO creating unpredictable pitch and time fluctuations, ranging from ‘natural’ to ‘supernatural’.
  • WASH: A grainy, unnatural sounding, hall reverb, inspired by digital rack effects from the VHS-era.
  • MIX: Controls the over-all wet/dry balance.
  • OUTPUT: Controls the global output.
  • HIDDEN PROCESSING: High shelf EQ attenuation, bit-crusher, limiter.

Wait, where are the Presets?

Like the ‘I Heart NY’ parallel compressor, Super VHS isn’t designed for preset browsing. Instead, you have all the controls you need at your fingertips — allowing you to create the right sound for any purpose in a simple and intuitive way (faster and more rewarding than by clicking through presets). The effect algorithms respond very differently to different sounds and instruments — so you never quite know where you’ll end up.

And a final word of warning: Super VHS is not a ‘one-size fits all’ kind of effect. Its six algorithms can sound heavenly on some things and totally destroy others. More often than not a little goes a long way!
