Load up an instant lo-fi vibe or let nostalgic design and uncommon sounds inspire you to creatively break bad. Bad Speaker makes it easy to add spice to your productions with three distinctive speaker flavors. Play with the Portable Radio, Cassette Deck, and Hi-Fi Speaker modes. Experiment with various amounts of gritty distortion with the simple drive control. Or test out different types of sound design. No matter how you use it, Bad Speaker proves why it's so fun to be bad.

Get the overdriven speaker distortion you would expect from lo-fi speakers without needing to tweak parameters. Bad Speaker offers three selectable speaker modes that take you from toy speaker to high-end monitor.

In Portable Radio you get the worst lo-fi speaker we could find. Have fun driving it hard and watching it crumble. Cassette Deck gives you the '80s boombox at its best with a tight bass and a snarly mid-range bite. Hi-Fi Speaker is a great-sounding speaker in a room and a perfect jumping-off point for sonic excursions.

Ever notice how constraint can often lead to creativity? Bad Speaker features a streamlined selection of sliders so you can play and stay in your creative flow. Exaggerate the gritty distortion of the speaker modes with the Drive slider. Use the stereo slider to make your track sound wider or bring more power and focus by concentrating your sound in the center. With the Tone slider, you can easily tilt from lighter with more treble to a heavier bass sound.


  • Unique lo-fi speaker sounds perfect for sound design and experimentation.
  • From the makers of Tape, Dirty Tape, Wasted Space, Harmonics, and Saturation Knob.
