Magic Switch is a lush one-button chorus effect based on the “Magic” feature in our Super VHS plugin.
It is loosely inspired by the Juno-60 analog chorus effect*, but offers its own dark and detuned character.
“We wanted to create a one-button chorus effect as gratifying and magical as the Juno chorus. But since there’s already a thousand emulations of the Juno chorus, it made little sense to release #1001. Instead, we wanted Magic Switch to be its own thing, with its own sound.”
“Magic Switch is designed for the software age, where the source material is cleaner, louder and often begs for a more radical transformation. Super VHS is all about adding that bit of ‘otherness’ to a clean sound — and Magic Switch may be its most distinctive effect. So we’re excited to give it away as a free stand-alone plugin.”
Magic Switch reminds me about Push by Sampleson. Both have a “one-button” configuration, but the similarities end here, because Push is a synthesizer and creates a new patch every single time you hit that button in the middle.
