Cynamtics, the developers of the free Origin vintage/lo-fi plugin, have released Deja Vu, a time-warping effect plugin.

Deja Vu is a new effect plugin that uses in its core a combination of time-stretching and pitch-shifting algorithms. The developers promise that it can create an instant dreamy vibes to any sound.

On the bottom of the plugin, you can find three time-stretching modes: 1.5X, 2X, and 4X with which everything begins. Once you select a mode, Deja Vu gives you additional controls. 

An exciting feature is the built-in looper with nine unique time divisions that determine how the effect is looped They range from 1/16 all the way up to eight bars. This allows you to play the resulting audio always in sync with your track.

Next to the loop section, it also has fade in/out options where each knob offers a duration of up to 16 bars. This gives you more freedom how to use the effect. 

With the mooth and mix controls, you can adjust how the transformed sound sits in your mix. There is also a bandpass filter that mangels the pitched sound. It’s fully controllable with the bandpass selector that sets the low- and highpass filter values.

Cymatic recommends the plugin for hip hop productions. I’m sure it works in any genre. Especially if you want to give sounds a dreamy, vintage vibe. Or time-stretch specific elements in a track and keep everything in sync. Deja Vu is not a plugin that you will use in every track or 100% of the time. More an effect for special cases.

First Impression

I tried it briefly and it does what it promises. A solid free plugin and one you should not miss if you want to create time-stretch effects for free.

Cymatics Deja Vu is available now as a free download. It runs as a 64-bit VST, AU and AAX plugin on macOS (Intel + native Apple Silicon) and Windows.
