Welcome to the world of breaking down the digital world. Yes, in our music production world, we are proud to record on 24-bit and 192kHz to provide pristine audio for music lovers.

BUT... as we are, we are keen on crushing things as well, which means that LoFi audio quality is not a side effect of cheap Chinese child toys, but has become a creative tool in today's music creation and post-audio productions. Who could have thought of that in the 80ties when everybody screamed for 16-bit instead of 8bit.

Yes, humans are creative and many years later the 'LoFi' sound sculpting became an art of its own.

Well, LowSane adapts to this creative process and adds some additional creative options like the 'Disrupt Sphere' to this world of crushing down the digital bits.

If offers in the audio route a Distortion module, Band Pass / Notch Filter, Lo-Fi section, Hi and low Pass Filters, and a Noise Gate.

These parameters can be controlled by the 'Disrupt Sphere', and additionally there is also an Audio Follower which again can control the "Disrupt Sphere" or any of the other parameters.

Last but not least there is a 2-slot modulation matrix in which you can connect again parameters, or use MIDI to control parameters and also the 'Disrupt Sphere'.

With LowSane you get your bits and pieces together going LoFi.
