Free Baby Audio Pitch Drift plugin gives you instant VHS tape-style tuning wobble


To be ‘in tune’ is often seen as one of the key tenets of music, but for producers, there are benefits to some pitch instability. And Pitch Drift, a new free plugin from Baby Audio that can provide precisely that.

Powered by the Drift algorithm in Baby Audio’s Super VHS plugin, this introduces variable amounts of pitch fluctuation so that you can make your potentially sterile digital tracks sound more natural.

The effect can range from subtle instabilities to extreme detuning. You can set the depth of the effect with a slider and hover over the screen to adjust the speed.

Baby Audio says that, as a general rule of thumb, the less sustained your source material is, the faster you can set the speed parameter. Conversely, if you are working with lengthy sounds or an entire mix bus, you are better off keeping the effect subtle.

Pitch Drift runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats. You can download it for free from the Baby Audio website. You can also download the company’s other freebies – Magic Switch and Magic Dice – while you are there.
