Chill VSTs

before I start please note I am not asking you to make a list of random vsts, I am specifying vts that make a certain sound.

does anyone here know any free vsts that can be used on mac, to make very lo-fi ambient noises?
not pads or strings, those are too upfront, I want something that can really stick out, while being in the background of the track.

Re: chill vsts

Are you talking about tape flutter, vinyl crackling, and bit crushed sound scapes?

Re: chill vsts

Audiobulb's Sophia and AB Vsti immediately come to my mind, but no Mac version and I think their Ambient v3 is rather a Granular Sampler than actual sound generator. If it inherited some of the genes from Sophia and AB Vsti - It might work though... Dunno, I'm sure some guy(s) on here are working with that plugin

Looks like you could probably get all of those things (or close to it) from your DAW(s).

Re: chill vsts

look into FFT based (spectral) plugins such as filters, gates, shifters and stuff that includes granular synthesis. If you own ableton, get some max for live user-made devices from online library, they're usually free and can be found here: [Only registered and activated users can see links.

Re: chill vsts

load sample> hit record > fiddle with parameters heavily > throw random effects on > twist knobs and push buttons lot and lots > generally fuck shit up big time > rinse/repeat/reuse the sample you recorded etc > chop up recording for the best bits you smiled at or went "whoa what a fucking sound!!!" and so on and so forth. in other words, use your head and the things you already have to learn to make shit out of anything

nothing else needed

Re: chill vsts

Some good pointers in here:

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


I am a big fan of Decimort for all things lo-fi. For FX, you can probably do some good work with FF Volcano/Saturn. Using multiple random LFOs modulating each other you can probably get to some random crackles. Same idea perhaps for pink noise (volume and pitch modulated) to get some tape hiss.

Re: chill vsts

for that, the main perc focus is on hats only, so play with simple delays and/or no standard patterns, plus accurate mixing is all that is on the them, and use very accurately and finely designed layered/panned/verbed perc hits. mainly real perc hits too, either on real drums or recorded other stuff that's organic. like knocking your tea cup with a pen. then fine tune the fuck out of the samples. this isn't that hard to achieve tbh

yes yes yes

stop flying in vsts to bring new ideas and sounds for you... You will never be satisfied. Think about stuff, be interesting, play with stuff, dont be afraid. Delete half of your vsts now!!!!

Re: chill vsts

here's another really simple way to get organic clicky sounding perc too. get any sample, literally any sample at all. drop it into a midi track in a sampler plugin. then set the sample start anywhere where there's some audio, now shorten that decay right down until there's hardly any at all, shorten the sustain and the release too. all the way down until you're playing just literally a click from the sample. there's your organic click. you can use this then with effects on (if needed) to smooth it out or get a groove going with it etc etc or use it in different notes in a piano roll so you get something a bit more melodically inclined too.

To get the more granular/vinyl type sound, add a delay that's random - maybe use automation instead of just hitting in soe setting and leaving it - wang it through a short ish reverb to give it more of a tail that's natural. then, reversing that audio sample you just recorded, replay the recorded audio backwards through the reverb (maybe a longer one this time) and then re-reverse this last recording (so it's playing the right way around this time)


I've quickly just spent 10 mins doing just that (without the fine tuning and eq-ing etc) to show the method to your ears in stages. i've included a wav of each stage including the original source loop too. I literally drooped it in the sampler, set the start point blindly and then reduced sustain to 0, release to approx 1ms and decay to around 25ms to get the click sound that plays a 4/4 beat. i then pitched it up 3 octaves and did what i said above, plus layered them all together. you can hear clearly enough with the use of accurate EQing which sounds you could pull from there and make into any of the ones you're after. needed no vst beyond my DAW's native plugins too btw

here's the link to the examples: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

Re: Chill VSTs

Whatever source really.

Just put it through bunch of effects. LFO to pitch and filter. EQ. reverb. mix in noises and clicks. Bit crusher and dists/similar

The best way to get this is by processing shit.

I was kinda looking for synths, I know how to make it sound lofi, I'm asking for synths that boost the quality of that lofi feel

Re: Chill VSTs

use the synths you have and do some creative saturation and bandpass or notch filtering. you've got ableton it appears, check their vinyl effect, their saturator etc.

do a whole lot of really subtle things in series.
