True Analog Lofi Magic for Your Tracks

  • Vintage Cassette Tones. Deep Vinyl Grooves.

    From turntable rumble to wow and wobble, turntables and cassettes were bedeviled by mechanical sounds. Retro Fi brings them back to life, for textures that will help you breathe life into the dullest synth line, drum break, or vocal adlib.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Choose Varied Textures and Noises

    The library of 67 different noises includes vinyl, cassette, electrical, synthetic, mechanical, digital, and FX noise sources. Duck or gate so noises flow with the music, or lay them in as a background to provide texture.

  • Choose Era-Specific Vibes

    Choose from four decades, and four different interpretations of those decades. Squash with compression, push peaks with expansion, then tweak big with the tone—or if you want, go insane with ring modulation.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • Bathe Your Tracks in Nostalgic Spaces

    Create a sonic space with reverb, from sproingy spring to vintage digital plate. Sync delay to tempo for percussive echo bursts, pan with ping pong mode, do parallel processing, and add feedback—from zero to infinity.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
