Plugin Alliance has announced the release of Unfiltered Audio’s new audio plugin LO-FI-AF, an effect that is designed to bring you on a journey through your favorite audio artifacts of the past few decades.

Using impulse responses, spectral shaping, and other techniques, it conjures up the idiosyncrasies of everything from vinyl records and analog radios to MP3s, CDs, cassettes, cell phones and beyond.

This versatile plugin does much more than other saturators and bit crushers. 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.

LO-FI-AF features

  • Go beyond standard bitcrushing with artifacts and degradation from MP3s, CDs, vinyl, tape cassettes and more.
  • A Convolution section includes impulse responses from broken microphones antiquated speakers and other special devices.
  • The Spectral section creates pitch shifting, audio rippling, and MP3 artifact effects.
  • The Digital section provides bit crushing, sample rate degradation and CD skipping effects.
  • The Analog section mimics radio interference, tape saturation, vinyl noise, compression, and warbly motors.
  • Rearrange the 4 modules in any order you like for 24 unique signal path combinations.
  • Beautiful and simple to navigate GUI puts all the controls at your fingertips in an easily manageable way.
  • A versatile collection of artifacts and processing not found in other plugins, sure to spice up your productions in new ways.
  • Graphic design by Papernoise, including 14 different skins.
