United Plugins have released Retronaut, a new lo-fi vibe creating plugin, available at the intro price of €24.00, increasing to €89.00 after the promotion. The offer ends March 18th.
Retronaut is a multi-voice vibrato and chorus with LoFi effects. It is inspired by old analogue gear such as bucket brigade chips, tape cassettes, vinyl records and voltage-controlled filters.
The multi-voice engine allows you to mix from a single vibrato voice up to 4, resulting in a rich chorus. The mix is continuously variable, so you can find sweet spots between the voices.
Retronaut adds that nostalgic magic of the past, with multiple ways to age and degrade your music. Including warm dirt & grit, wow & flutter, dusty crinkles & crackles and more.
Offset the voices in various ways to create organic and evolving movements. Spread the voices over the stereo field, progressively delay them, warp their phase and even offset the LFO rate for each independently.
The heart of Retronaut is its modulation. However, you can dial back the “Vibe” and use its other effects. The tape saturation sounds so good it could have been a plugin on its own. Get that warm, woolly and compressed tape sound, then shape it with the VA filters and mix to perfection.
The Feed control sends the signal from each voice back into each other to create a complex feedback network. Combine this with Lag to delay each voice and the filters for dampening to get a lush modulated reverb that sounds breathtakingly beautiful.
The plugin has high-pass and low-pass resonant filters with switchable 2 or 4 poles to shape the tone of the effect. The filters can also be modulated with the LFO to add extra motion and flow to your sounds.
Retronaut is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU, AAX).
