Sonicware Liven Lofi-6

Limited to only 500 units worldwide, Sonicware's LIVEN Lofi-6 is a tastefully low-fidelity sampler and groovebox building upon the success of their Lofi-12. As far as features are concerned, Lofi-6 is notably similar to the Lofi-12 in size and functional workflows, but it boasts a couple of key differences.

For starters, Lofi-6 runs at the very retro sampling rate and bit depth of 6kHz at 16 bits, affording 8 seconds of mono sampling. This particular choice of sample rate rolls off high-end frequencies in a way that Sonicware likens more to television of the 1950s and 60s than a particular vintage sampler. Further warmth and harmonic interest may be created by making use of the all-new Tube mode, emulating the saturation and character of a vacuum tube amplifier. Thus, Lofi-6 has a sonic signature all its own, and even owners of the Lofi-12 may find something new in this device.

Sound quality aside, the Lofi-6 maintains a number of the sequencer features established by other instruments in the LIVEN family. With four tracks of sequencing, you can apply parameter and sound locks to your compositions for dynamic and lively variations. The Laid-Back parameter allows you to dial in the pocket of your backbeat for looser-feeling grooves with a human-like touch. And for more fun, try out the variety of effects available to each track, including chorus, delay, distortion, and more, plus master effects like reverb and cassette tape and vinyl simulations. If you're seeking out the lowest-fi possible, give the limited edition Sonicware Lofi-6 a shot—but don't wait too long and miss your chance.
