In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to get Dubby Spring Reverb & Tape Delay using Outer Space by AudioThing on a Return Track.
Get Outer Space — PIB/OuterSpace
Outer Space is the latest update to what used to be called Outer Verb. The improvements are many and bring the plugin to a whole new level. It has fantastic emulations of 3 old school tape delays and a spring reverb that sounds perfect!
For this tutorial I’m going to show how to add Outer Space a return track and then send the last word of the a vocal phrase to get that live dubby reggae feel.

*full release notes below
Outer Space is a faithful emulation plugin of a famous vintage tape echo made in the early seventies. As the original unit, Outer Space features an echo section with three playback heads and a spring reverb tank. We have modelled three different tape frequency responses and saturations, along with all the analog imperfections of tape recording/playback. We’ve also modelled the ballistic response of the delay rate (repeat rate) which can create eerie pitch shifts (due to the Doppler effect), one of the classic tape echo-based sound effects.
We’ve modelled three different tape types. The original RT-1L, a more modern replacement, and an older worn out tape. Each tape will affect the sound in a subtle but different way, especially at higher feedback (Intensity) settings.
WOW/Flutter will also change according to the selected tape, creating different amount of pitch and volume nonlinearities.
Changing the speed of the repetitions (Repeat Rate) will also affect the tape frequency response.
Just like the original unit, with the Mode selector you can choose 12 different combinations of echo playback heads and reverb (4 Echo only, 7 Echo+Reverb, 1 Reverb only).
