This is a small collection of more or less classical destructive tools to mash up your sound featuring:

- Buzzer & Bit Crusher
- Samplerate Reducer whith Formant and
Harshness control
- Saturation
- some Auto Degain and Damping functions
to save your ears!

So just another Lo-Fi tool? I tried to make these old ideas easier to handle so that you can allways achieve the right loudness and sharpness.

A speacial feature is the sample rate reducer with integrated formant and harshness control. Never heard of something like that? - so check it out - I really like it.

I hope this one will help you a bit to make your LoFi HiFi!!!


I tried to improve the Bit Confuser section. Buzzer and Bit Reducer now interact much better. And there's a new "DeNoise - control" affecting the behavior of the Buzzer. It should help to adjust its sensibility for the case of plugging instruments that produce some noise by nature (like guitars).
I guess I did some other things that I don't remember.

...go and get confused!!!

This is awesome! I'm having a little issue though, maybe I'm not understanding how to set it up. When I put this on a mono audio track (in PT2018), it turns the track into stereo and then only plays through the left side. any idea how to fix this? thanks!

a feature that switches between different routings would be nice :-)

First of all: thanks for the great feedback! But still I'm not sure if the signal routing is perfect. Should the drive section better be placed in front of the bit crusher? I also thought about a feature which allows to switch between different routings - how do you think about it out there?
