Feel the lofi magic of the 1980s — with six unique effects in one strange plugin.

Super VHS Interface

Two and a half busy months after releasing our first plugin, I Heart NY - Parallel Compressor, we’re excited to announce the follow up.

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 the lofi spirit of our favorite decade — and bring it into a new decade.

Super VHS hosts six unique ‘one-knob effects’, coming together in a versatile channel strip.

STATIC: Static noise synthesizer. HEAT: ‘Analog tape’ saturator. SHAPE: Sample rate reducer inspired by 1980s 8-bit samplers. MAGIC: Dark and lush chorus FX. DRIFT: Pitch fluctuation LFO. WASH: ‘Bad Hall’ reverb. + Internal 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.

Super VHS will add some 1980s 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.

Mac and PC, VST, VST3, AU and AAX, 64-bit and 32-bit. Compatible with all major DAWs.
