For those with a nostalgic heart for music of the good old days, Thenatan may have what you need with their new release of Vybz, a Swiss Army knife Multi-Effect plugin to bring back the tonal “Vybz” of yesterday. Until the 27th of March, you can even enjoy their 63% off introductory price and get this multi-tool for only $29.50.
Vybz is a ‘Lofi Multi FX plugin‘ meant mainly to bring back the retro-flavours from the eras of the musical past, but can somewhat serve as a main multi-FX tool nonetheless. You can use it to emulate the crackling pops of olden records and tune in a musky tone to go with it, but you can also just use it for all kinds of FX-creativity. Your imagination is basically the only thing holding you back with one of these puppies.

For those who love some fun creativity with FX, this will most likely hit a few sweet spots. Those in doubt can check out their fully-functional trial with the upside it never expires, but with the downside that it has a built-in sound-muting every 10 seconds. But this will not bother you, because you’re only trying before buying 😉
