BABY Audio releases Pitch Drift, a freeware pitch modulation effect in VST, AU, and AAX plugin formats for Windows and macOS.
Pitch Drift is a streamlined pitch modulation tool that applies subtle pitch fluctuations to the processed audio signal. The effect is powered by the “Drift” algorithm from BABY Audio’s popular Super VHS (49) plugin.
In the words of BABY Audio, “Pitch Drift makes it fast and easy to break the spell of digital pitch perfection and get your tracks to vibrate a little more.”
Looking closely at the interface, Pitch Drift resembles BABY Audio’s other freebies, like Magic Dice and Baby Comeback, in terms of simplicity and usefulness. These plugins are designed to perform a single task without standing in the user’s way. They’re easy to use and deliver instant results.
Pitch Drift has two control parameters. The Amount slider adjusts the pitch modulation depth, letting you apply anything from subtle pitch fluctuations (that sound organic and natural) to over-the-top pitch chaos (that sounds like me singing karaoke).
You can also adjust the modulation speed by hovering over the GUI with the mouse. Semi-fast modulation typically sounds the most natural, whereas extremely fast or slow pitch fluctuations can work as a creative effect.
BABY Audio provides a helpful tip here: “the less sustained your source is, the faster you want the speed parameter to be set.”
