Lofi-12 XT - How to Resample While Adding External FX


video upload by ChrisLody

"More information about the Lofi-12 XT: https://sonicware.jp/pages/lofi12xt

Full Disclosure: I occasionally take on freelance work at Sonicware on an hourly rate producing synth & sample sound design, beta testing, checking English text, video manuals etc. This video wasn't paid for directly but as a result of my work with Sonicware it is marked as Paid Promotion

*Note: I probably should have pointed out that I have the Left and Right inputs selected as the input from the Sampling menu, that's pretty important* 😅

This is an old school analogue resampling technique you can use on the Lofi-12 to add external effects to your audio. Resampling can also be done digitally if you'd like to just record internal samples without adding effects by changing the source selection to one of the tracks or the master output from the Sampling menu. You can also adapt the method in the video and leave the monitoring switched off if you don't need to hear the results in real-time"

Lofi on the Sonicware Lofi-12 XT


video upload by No Rush

"Just a quick lofi jam on the XT. I'm really loving this device so far; the workflow is super fluid and flexible, the hardware is solid and it sounds great. I probably should have taken the screen protector off before I started filming, sorry!"

Lofi-12 XT [Cyberpunk Demo with modulating test]


video upload by SONICWARE

"Lofi-12 XT Kickstarter Campaign Ends 5th Nov. FREE BONUS CASE to All Backers!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...

I tested with modulating the end point of the sample using the Parameter Locking, and modulating the filter frequency with an LFO. I used only one LFO, but you can use two for more complex modulation.
I was using both 24kHz and 12kHz sampling sounds mixed together, but that's fun too.

Sound comparison of Lofi-12 and Lofi-6


video upload by SONICWARE

[Japanese translation of the narration]
"ナレーションの日本語訳】
Lofi-6はLofi-12のサンプリング・レートを6kHzに変えただけの製品ではありません。 それぞれの製品コンセプトは異なり、サウンド・エンジンも異なります。

ご存知の通り、Lofi-12はデジタル録音で発生するエイリアス・ノイズがサウンドのポイントです。

一方、Lofi-6は昔のアナログ機器から出ていたサウンドを目指して開発されています。Lofi-6では、デジタル特有のエリアス・ノイズを抑えるために、各トラックに特別な処理を施しています。
この処理のために、カセットテープ・シミュレーターのハム・ノイズ効果を削らざるを得ませんでした。

また、Lofi-6に真空管アンプ・シミュレーター・モード用のリソースを確保するために、Lofi-12のトラック毎にある12bitサンプラー・モードを無くしています。

それでは、実際の音を聴いてみてください。"

Googlish:

"Lofi-6 is not just Lofi-12 with 6kHz sampling rate. Each product concept is different and the sound engine is also different.

As you know, Lofi-12 is the point of sound alias noise that occurs in digital recording.

Lofi-6, on the other hand, was developed with the aim of producing the sound that came from old analog gear. In the Lofi-6, each track is specially processed to suppress digital alias noise.
For this process, I had to cut the hum effect of the cassette tape simulator.

Also, in order to reserve resources for the tube amp simulator mode on the Lofi-6, the 12bit sampler mode on each track of the Lofi-12 has been removed.

Now listen to the actual sound. "

Sonicware LIVEN Lofi-12 & Korg DSS-1| David Vs Goliath?


video upload by Espen Kraft

"Looking for a modern sampler/sequencer that can be a mix of old 12-bit Akai samplers and the Casio RZ1, while being able to do a lot more, the LIVEN LoFi-12 might be a good choice.
It does have that Casio RZ-1 sound (and swing) though, so based on that alone it's great."

Quick guide for LIVEN Lofi-12 v2.0


video upload by ChrisLody

"LIVEN Lofi-12 v2.0:
https://sonicware.jp/pages/liven-lofi12

● Chopping
Two new voice modes called ‘Drum’ and ‘Chop’ auto-slice samples easily with the newly developed Downbeat Divider*. Sliced sections of a sample are then spread across the keyboard making finger drumming possible.

● Resampling
Patterns and tracks can be resampled by internally recording the audio output into a new sample. Real-time resampling of your keyboard playing is also possible.

● Remix Effect
A beat repeater effect ‘R.MIX’, added to the master effect options, makes glitchy real-time performances possible.

The new features are designed to work well with each other so you can easily create drum tracks with auto-slicing and record lively performances that are not constrained by the grid of the internal step sequencer. You can also resample samples and tracks for infinite effects processing and even build your own beats and kits ready to be sliced up in the Drum and Chop modes.

The new features in version 2.0 will further expand your creativity!

-------------

*…Downbeat Divider is an auto-slicing function that divides the entire sample into equal portions of equal length by setting the length of one beat. Set the length by the [VOICE] ADJ. It can be set from 0 to 255 for a maximum of 1 second. The default is 0.5 seconds at 167.

PLEASE NOTE: The new Drum sounds I describe were revised shortly after the video was finished so are available as individual samples rather than a bank. Therefore the upload procedure is not the same as shown at the start of the video. Sonicware has provided an update guide for the firmware and new sounds so please refer to that for guidance."
