Continuing on with our ‘Essential’ Tech Tip series along with the release of our awesome ANA 2 Lo-Fi preset pack, we welcome back Owsey to look at the tools and techniques used to create a downtempo, chilled and classic lo-fi track.
After Chris gives us the lowdown on what this genre is about and where it stemmed from, Owsey picks apart a track he’s created for this course, giving us an insight into the creation and processing involved in achieving a lo-fi feel.
From sampling, drums, sound degradation, live instruments, synths, vocals and FX, this is a masterclass in creating your very own relaxing, old skool sound.
