Waves Audio is now shipping Retro Fi, which they describe as the ultimate lofi FX chain. This announcement follows the recently released Lofi Space, a unique reverb and echo combo plugin, that was given away free, only during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here's the details direct from Waves...
Waves Retro Fi provides everything you need to produce authentic lofi textures, warm analog sounds, and mesmerizing nostalgic vibes, like vintage cassette tones and deep vinyl grooves. This plugin includes a massive palette of lofi noises, spaces, devices and textures. Retro Fi has what it takes to breathe life into the dullest synth line, drum break, vocal adlib or instrumental track.
Waves Retro Fi offers you four modules/sections that you can combine, each with its own flavors:
For instant gratification, users can flip through 250 artist presets, curated by top producers and beat makers in hip hop, electronic genres, rock and beyond – including producers for Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Dr. Dre, Dua Lipa, Post Malone and many more.
Retro Fi doesn't just stack various random FX onto your tracks; it is designed to act and feel like a true, living, breathing analog device. The four sections are built serially, while also internally routed, so they act together like a singular unit. The result: better-matched sounds that feel organically glued, without the artificial feel you sometimes get when adding a digital lofi effect. Instantly vintage, timelessly classic – Retro Fi is the first choice for true analog lofi sound.
Retro Fi Features:
Waves' recently released Lofi Space plugin is the perfect effect for those attention-grabbing ear candy moments. With bright saturated delay and two flavors of analog-based spring and plate reverb, Lofi Space lets you add splashes of vintage 'verb color and bold analog echo to your tracks. With this plugin, you can create deep, gorgeous lofi-tinged effects instantly with no tweaking needed, suited for any production in need of that vintage touch.
Above all else, Lofi Space brings you character. Some reverbs and delays are there just to be felt. Waves Lofi Space is meant to be heard. It's the effect you'll be reaching for when you want to stop being polite with your sound – when you want a lofi-inspired signature sound that delivers a bold, dynamic statement in your production.
In addition to Spring and Plate reverb tones; the ECHO button enabling delay sync to BPM, host or milliseconds; adjustable echo feedback and more, Lofi Space also gives you a MONO control, letting you narrow the stereo field of your samples or live instruments to faithfully mimic the sound of old mono records.
Whether used as an insert or on an independent FX channel, Lofi Space is a surefire way to spice up your game and start using reverb and delay for what they are – inspiring instruments in their own right.
