Introducing Spaced Out by BABY Audio
Spaced Out is a lush wet-FX generator, built for sending your sounds and vocals into weightless, heavenly orbit. It combines a crystalline reverb engine with a wealth of modulation options and a 16-step delay sequencer. In total, more than 50 individual effects come together in a singular creative experience with endless outcomes and zero sub-menus.
- Echoes: 16-step delay sequencer sync’ed to the DAW’s tempo. Modes: Straight, 2x, Dotted, Triplet. Intensity: Sets the sequencer’s behaviour through sustain and feedback controls. Dimension: Off, Ultra-Wide and Motion modes. Texture: Clean, Wonky Tape, Lofi and Hazy modes. Reverse: Reverses the delay playback. Filter: Analog-modeled low and high pass filters.
- Space: X-Y based joystick control for intuitively morphing between reverb length and modulation behaviour. Programs: Vacuum, Small Space, Medium Space, Outer Space. Pre-Delay: 0-250 milliseconds. Stardust: Adds an angelic, sustained shimmer to the reverb tail. Mellow: Dual low and high end dampening filter. Clean-Up: Feeds an altered dry signal into the reverb algorithm, for a cleaner and less dense response. Width: Sets the reverb width between wide and mono.
- Central Mixer: Mixer: X-Y joystick control for seamlessly morphing between the Echoes/Space and Wet/Dry signals. Generate: musically tuned randomizing function for instantly generating new effect configurations. Lift-Off: Glues the wet signals together through a combination of compression, mid-side processing and EQ. Ducker: Ducks the wet signal when the dry signal is playing. Ducker Sync: Syncs the ducker to your DAW’s BPM for a pumping ‘four-on-the-floor’ effect. Output: Controls the global effect output.
Use it subtly to add depth and movement — or go explore the outer bounds of wet-FX processing.
