Baby Comeback, A Free Analog-Style Delay Plugin For PC & Mac

Free plugin alert. Baby Audio is now offering the Baby Comeback delay effect plugin as a free download. It is a stripped-down version of the Comeback Kid delay/echo plugin which I wrote about a few months ago.

Initially only available as a free plug-in for Computer Music subscribers, it is now available for everyone

Baby Comeback

The little sister of the Comeback Kid plugin features the same flexible delay engine including the beloved ducker. Baby Comeback incorporates four selectable styles with which you can shape audio signals in different ways.

  • wide: a modern, clean, and extra-wide sounding delay
  • analog: a darker delay, reminiscent of vintage tape and bucket brigade echo units.
  • saucey: utilizes Comeback Kid’s stereo and flavoring tools for a wet and lush delay sound.
  • cheap: a lo-fi delay sound inspired by 1980s rack units.

The delay engine acts in four modes: straight, dotted, triplets, and free. Further, it has time and feedback controls alongside a ping-pong switch. Like the big version, it also includes a built-in ducker, and individual dry & wet knobs to mix the signal. However, the large number of special delay types or the shaping section that makes Comeback Kid much more powerful is missing here.

Nonetheless, Baby Comeback is a solid delay plugin that offers many options and costs nothing. It is available as a free download in VST/VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats for Windows and Mac. You need to sign up to the Baby Audio mailing list to get the plugin for free.
