Plugin Alliance and Unfiltered Audio have released LO-FI-AF, a low-fidelity effects plugin. LO-FI-AF does much more than other saturators and bit crushers, however. In addition to the tape saturation, vintage mics, and vinyl dust and pops, it recreates the sound of CD skipping, MP3 chirps, radio interference, and even the chatter made by a cell phone placed too close to a speaker. Each of LO-FI-AF’s sections can be toggled and reorganized for a total of 24 different signal paths. Do you want to add some analog grunge before the MP3ification? Sure! Want to make it sound like it was recorded through a busted microphone, burned to a CD, and then scratched up? Why not?! Use it to add vibe and nostalgia to your tracks, or completely demolish source material into something practically unrecognizable.
Unfiltered Audio LO-FI-AF is available now for $149, with an introductory price of $129.99. Voucher code LO-FI-AF-INTRO-9999 drops that to $99.99 until October 4. If you already own any Unfiltered Audio plugins, bx_oberhausen, Knif Audio Knifonium, DS Audio Thorn V1.2 or elysia karacter, log into your Plugin Alliance account to check for further discounts. LO-FI-AF requires macOS 10.9 or later and an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host.
