DubStation delay plug-in

Filed under: Music software at 1:15 pm (1 comment)

I like the look of the DubStation delay plugin because of its fun 3D interface, the attitude of its maker Audio Damage (“The World’s Most l33t Plug-ins!”) and because I like dub. Any plugin that can get you that spaced-out, infinite echo trip feeling has got to be good. I especially like the idea of the “extra dubby feedback” provided by the low-pass filter. I think all instruments should have an “extra dubby feedback” button.

Details from the Audio Damage website: The DubStation plug-in is modeled on the “bucket-brigade” style of vintage delay units, and has all the mojo that made those boxes great. Accurate down to the warm sound of the feedback loop and the low-fidelity character of the originals, DubStation is just what the (witch) doctor ordered.


  • 4ms to 2000ms delay time.
  • Accurate delay model that changes the pitch of the signal when the time is changed.
  • Sync-to-host capable
  • Full MIDI learn mode, for MIDI CC control of every control (VST only; handled by host in AU version)
  • Loop and reverse features
  • Low-cut filter controllable for extra dubby feedback

DubStation is available as a VST effect for Windows, and as an AU/VST for OSX. Note that you must have OSX 10.3.9 or greater to use the DubStation AudioUnit version.

  1. […] FuzzPlus 2 is a fuzzbox plugin from Audio Damage, makers of the mighty dubonic DubStation plugin. FuzzPlus is a fuzzbox plugin with the same fun cartoon interface and very simple controls. The basis of this plugin is a transform model of “a famous vintage fuzz pedal,” though they don’t say which one. And importantly, it’s not just cheap — it’s free. […]
