Free Lo-Fi Synth and Keys Presets

I have been obsessed with that Lo-Fi retro sound from VHS and Cassette Tapes… so I bought a bunch and made some wild synths out of them. I used the Tape players to give it that lo-fi wow and flutter sound. Add some saturation and other awesome things… and you got some amazing new sounds to play with.

I collected some of these new synths I made and put them into a free / by donation live pack. Here is a walkthrough video:

Making String / Violin sounds with Wavetable

Live 10 is out, and it’s awesome!  Took me a while to really get some of the improvements, but over time I fell in love all over again.  Live added some awesome effects and it made my sound designer brain happy. Over the last few months I have been developing these Audio Effect Racks using the powerful new devices.

Big Pad Chords – Virtual Riot, Odesza, Wavetable

So bass will only get you so far. You also need chords, pads, and other sounds to make the track feel finished. I am a big fan of lush chords. The kind I hear in Virtual Riot’s and Odesza’s tracks. I made this new Wavetable Preset with that sound in mind. Check out the video below or grab the preset for a $1.
