ARTIFAKT Lo-Fi Elements

Lo-Fi Modulation, Reverb, Bit-Reduction and Filter

The ARTIFAKT Lo-fi Elements is the first pedal of its kind, a comprehensive collection of all the hazy, scratchy, wobbly, and broken tones that epitomize the term ‘lo-fi’.

Like a mega-delay or mega-reverb, ARTIFAKT is a “one-stop shop” for all the most sought-after lo-fi effects including old vinyl replications, tape modulation and saturation, bit crushing, sample rate reduction, dark reverb and echo, filtering, compression, glitch, and more.

Source Audio has dedicated much of the past three years to meticulously honing each of these sounds as well as engineering an entirely new hardware design with an easy-to-use interface that places the pedal’s full capabilities at your fingertips.

Main Features:

  • Lo-Fi Modulation / Reverb / Delay / Bitrate Reduction Effects Pedal
  • Updated platform with imporoved interface and additional controls and foots witches – for easier access to more parameters, presets, tap tempo and a variety of other engine specific functions
  • 7 different effect engines on the face of the pedal
    • Radio – crackling nostalgic tones of a vintage radio struggling to dial in a signal
    • Tape – conjures the sound of vintage tape machines with subtle compression, tape saturation, flutter and pitch modulation
    • μVerb – a primitive reverb effect with bouncing echoes similar to the reverb on 8-bit gaming systems
    • Crush – bit-depth quantizing and sample rate reduction, finely sculpted with the resonance of a Moog-style ladder filter
    • Ladder – filter effect inspired by the revered R-2R ladder filter
    • Vinyl – faithfully emulates the crackle and pop of vintage records
    • Glitch – adds an unpredictable edge with random speeds and pitches
  • 16 presets accessible via the pedal controls (128 presets available via MIDI)
  • Full MIDI control via 3.5 mm TRS MIDI In and Thru jacks
  • USB-C port for connecting to Neuro 3.0, Source Audio’s preset downloading and effect editing software
