Sonitex is the ultimate Lo-Fi workstation. It offers a complete suite of processing dedicated to adding texture to digital audio. This allows you to bring the gritty vibe from vinyl records and vintage hardware samplers into your modern DAW environment.
Sonitex features the most detailed vinyl emulation around. Comprising distortion, pitch warping, sibilance, frequency response and a flexible noise section with individual controls for pops, clicks and base noise you’ll be able to dial in the exact amount and type of vinyl flavour needed.
Old School Sampler
Vintage hardware samplers are renowned for their lo-fi characteristics which add a gritty quality to the sound. This has to do with many aspects ranging from limited bit-depth to dynamic filtering. Sonitex offers a flexible sampling stage allowing you to emulate a range of different sampler configurations.
Crush in Style. Any Style
Sonitex excels at making tracks sound like a dusty record through an old 12-bit sampler. Fresh vinyl or an aged phonograph - the choice is yours. But Sonitex is not limited to vinyl and samplers: Perhaps the vocal needs to sound like a classic movie clip on warped tape, or maybe the piano just needs to sound less sterile. The key is flexibility. Sonitex can be used to add a subtle analog feel to your tracks, for severe Lo-Fi
degradation or for sound sculpting & creative effects.
When sampling vinyl records on vintage hardware samplers you often get something more than the musical content itself. This “sonic texture” may be a subtle feel, or it may be something that actually plays a defining role to the sample. Sonitex is built on the idea that “texture” and “grit” is not a single effect such as noise or bitreduction. Rather, it is the cumulative result of every process a piece of music goes through as well as the interaction of these. So instead of focusing on just a single effect, Sonitex focuses on the complete life span of a piece of music before it ends up as a sample in a contemporary track. Sonitex includes processing to mimic the mixing stage, overall distortion, vinyl pressing & playback, vinyl noise, other types of noises, frequency fidelity and finally the resolution & characteristics in digital sampling.
