Baby Audio VHS


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

  • STATIC — Static noise synthesizer
  • HEAT — ‘Analog tape’ saturator
  • SHAPE — Sample rate reducer
  • MAGIC — Dark chorus FX
  • DRIFT — Pitch fluctuation LFO
  • WASH — ‘Bad hall’ reverb

Also including an Internal/hidden EQ, bit-crusher and limiter.


We 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.


  • 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.


Like our ‘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. The effect algorithms respond very differently to different sounds and instruments — so you never know where you’ll end up.

And a final word of warning: Super VHS is not a ‘one-size fits all’ kind of plugin.

Each effect will sound amazing on some things and totally destroy others (which may be exactly what you’re after!). More often than not, a little goes a long way.
