Sonicware Liven Lofi-12

Give your samples a bit of crunch and warmth with the Lofi-12, from Sonicware's LIVEN series, a 12/16-bit sampler inspired by vintage 80's samplers. More than just a bit reduction effect, this box records the actual sound in a lofi way to give you authentic audio degradation that is hard to emulate. Switch between 12 and 24kHz with 4s and 2s of sampling time, respectively, plus a switchable 16-bit and 12-bit recording mode. Set start and stop points, pitch adjustment, playback speed, and filtering all in the Lofi-12, and samples are automatically mapped to the built in keyboard. Sequence your sounds with a built in 4-track step sequencer and compose an entire piece with 64 patterns and 64 steps per pattern. Additionally, each track has independent effects for EQ, filtering, and delay, with a master reverb effect and cassette/vinyl emulator. For a compact and affordable way to get those lofi sounds and beats, the Sonicware Liven Lofi-12 is a great option.
