A Lo-Fi Flavor Beast - As kids of the 80s, Baby Audio have always been drawn to the sound of slightly out-of-tune synths, warm tape saturation, gritty samples, and grainy reverbs.

So they set out on a mission to capture the lo-fi spirit of our favorite decade - and bring it into a new decade. Meet a complex algorithm with eight simple knobs. They named it ‘Super’ for its powers and ‘VHS’ for its sound.

About Super VHS
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 channel strip. Super VHS will add some 1980s lo-fi authenticity to whatever clean sound you run through it - especially as you mix and match the effects.

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, and beyond.

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.

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: EQ, bit-crusher, limiter.

"To say that Super VHS only works with Lo-fi music will be a huge mistake, this plugin works for every genre and instrument. Try it on brass arrangements and let the magic happen. "
