Lo-Fi Synth


Opulent Audio have released bLO-FIsh which they describe as a versatile 3 Oscillator LO-FI synthesizer. They tell us that it is not an emulation of any particular "chip", but is much more powerful than that.
A spokesperson described it thus… “bLO-FIsh incorporates classic chip type (8 bit) sounds with more traditional synth elements to bring on a huge sonic range. Flexible, extensive modulation plus a 16-step gate for more musical and rhythmic options. Plus, bLO-FIsh has a distortion effect and a CPU-friendly reverb to garnish your 8 bit feast.� Here’s more details from the website…
Generators:
  • 3 Wave Oscillators with Sine, Saw, Ramp, Triangle, Square and two different widths of Pulse waves.
  • Audio quality is switchable between standard, 16 bit/44 khz operation and 8 bit/22 khz LO-FI mode.
  • Graphic amplitude ADSRs.
  • Output routing options to either filter, both filters, or no filter (straight to effects section).
  • Hard sync feedback loop - each oscillator hard syncs to the next and #3 syncs to #1.
Filters:
  • 2 Fast-response SV Filters with Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass and Band Reject modes.
  • Graphic ADSRs routable to cutoff, resonance, or both. Control over amount of envelope applied.
  • Pan and volume controls.
