A 1980S RETRO COLOR PLUGIN
As kids of the 1980s 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 our favorite decade – and bring it into a new decade.
Using Super VHS will 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.
Super VHS will add some 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 for a quick workflow and a wide range of results.

Super VHS Features
Static noise generated by an internal synthesizer.
Analog-emulated tape saturator, inspired by consumer-grade tape machines.
Sample rate reducer inspired by 1980s 8-bit samplers.
80s style widening FX inspired by the Juno chorus, but darker and deeper.
Pitch fluctuation LFO for unpredictable time and pitch shifting.
‘Bad hall’ reverb inspired by budget friendly 1980s rack units.
While each effect can only be controlled with one knob, multiple parameters work under the hood to give Super VHS its characteristic sound. We encourage you to mix and match the effects as that will give you a wide range of sonic outcomes – from subtle degradation to all-out destruction.
