Waves Retro Fi Analog Lo-Fi FX Plug-in - Electronic Delivery

The ultimate lo-fi FX chain plug-in with everything you need to produce authentic lo-fi textures, warm analog sounds, and mesmerizing nostalgic vibes

MFR# RTROFI

Product Description

Spark real life in your tracks: Waves Retro Fi is the ultimate lo-fi FX chain, with everything you need to produce authentic lo-fi textures, warm analog sounds, and mesmerizing nostalgic vibes. Vintage cassette tones. Deep vinyl grooves. A massive palette of lo-fi noises, spaces, devices, and textures. Retro Fi has what it takes to breathe life into the dullest synth line, drum break, vocal adlib or instrumental track.

Retro Fi gives you four modules you can combine, each with its own flavors:

  • Device is a complete analog coloring and tonal shaping engine, armed with newly designed impulse responses, an era-specific Styler for 50s/60s/70s/80s retro tones, a squasher, a colorful compressor to add life to instruments or vocals, and more.
  • Space adds saturated echo and analog reverb (spring/plate) for colorful depth and bold spatial sounds.
  • Noise boasts a massive library of over 60 unique textures, including diverse cassette and vinyl noises among many other surprises. Its smart noise generation algorithm ensures that the textures you add are lively and ever-changing, never repeating themselves like a pre-recorded loop.
  • Mechanics delivers the beautiful imperfections and mechanical wear and tear of old cassettes tapes and vinyl records. This section has two independent modulation engines, each with its own adjustable wow, wobble and speed.

250 Artist Presets

For instant gratification, flip through 250 artist presets, curated by top producers and beat makers in hip hop, electronic genres, rock and beyond - including the producers for Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Dr. Dre, Dua Lipa, Post Malone, and many more.

Organic Textures with Real Analog Glue and Character

Retro Fi doesn’t just stack various random FX onto your tracks: it’s designed to act and feel like a true, living, breathing analog device. The four sections are built serially, while also internally routed, so they act together like a singular unit. The result: better-matched sounds that feel organically glued, without the artificial feel you sometimes get when adding a digital lo-fi effect.

Instantly vintage, timelessly classic - Retro Fi is the first choice for true analog lo-fi sound.

  • Everything you need to produce authentic vintage lo-fi sounds
  • Massive menu of lo-fi noises and textures

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
