Baby Audio: Magic Switch
A free ‘Juno’ inspired chorus plugin.
Geared towards making hard tasks easier, Baby Audio aims to enhance the creativity of anyone with a vision and a laptop through the development of audio plugins. Established in 2019, the company has garnered industry recognition — with its Crystalline plugin being nominated for Sound On Sound’s 2023 SOS Awards, and the Spaced Out plugin winning Future Music’s 2021 ‘Plugin Of The Year’ award. In that short time, Baby Audio has grown its user-base to more than 100,000 passionate music-makers worldwide.
Magic Switch is a free chorus plugin that was inspired by Roland’s 1980s classic — the one-button ‘Juno’ chorus effect. In a world where clean sounds are easy but authentic colour is hard, this Baby Audio offering is not a direct emulation of the Juno-chorus, but rather updates what a DAW-era one-button chorus should sound like. Being derived from the Super VHS plugin, Magic Switch outmanoeuvres the Juno chorus and produces a beautifully detuned, rich, and moody vintage modulation effect that can breathe life into sterile sounding tracks.
- Dark and detuned character
