When you need extreme digital lo-fi character quickly, the reverb to reach for is Wasted Space. Wasted Space gives you the retro '80s aliasing artifacts currently in vogue in pop and electronic genres and takes them to eleven.

Put Wasted Space straight on a track to bring elements to the front of the mix or get a full low-fidelity sound by using it on a bus. With Wasted Space, you can go from lackluster to out-of-this-world in a flash.

The Art of Rock & Roll Science

When it comes to creating plug-ins that improve workflow and offer the highest quality sound, the Softube reputation is rock solid—and long. Their partnerships with premium brands like Marshall, Tube-Tech, Chandler Limited, and Weiss Engineering go back nearly twenty years. They develop every product with creativity, passion, and attention to detail. Because to create tools that innovate, you have to have heart, soul, and Rock & Roll Science.

With an inspiring retro-futuristic interface and essential features, Wasted Space is the perfect tool for innovative sound design.

Wasted Space's variable sample rate lets you quickly find your lo-fi sweet spot. You can use the filter options to sculpt the distortion with 12, 24, and 48 dB/octave types. Off gives you the most aggressively distorted sound, with 48 dB offering the smoothest of the types. The high pass slider lets you reduce the distortion in the high frequencies while keeping the distorted low frequencies, thereby removing the rumble often caused by low-frequency buildup.

Wasted Space is classic reverb pushed to the outer limits of lo-fi. The variable sample rate and selectable aliasing filter types of this native plug-in make it fun to get creative in pursuit of the perfect lo-fi vibe.

Wasted Space for Amp Room

Wasted Space is available for Softube Amp Room, Softube's pro audio guitar and bass platform. Combine it with other studio effects, classic amps, cabs, and pedals to create studio-quality, record-ready tones.

Wasted Space for Modular

Use Wasted Space in Softube Modular, our infinitely expandable, modular synthesizer platform. Virtually patch it to any of our modules from Doepfer, Buchla, and Intellijel—to name a few—and sonically go where you haven't before.

In short:

  • Intentional exaggeration of aliasing artifacts that were present in early digital reverbs.
  • From the makers of TSAR-1 Reverb, TSAR-1R Reverb, Spring Reverb, Atlantis Dual Chambers, and more.
