The Quantec room simulators are rare & unique. They have an eerie ability to create realistic enclosed atmosphere. It’s easy to understand the cult following of the Quantec sound. It’s rooms are 2nd to none.
What is this all about? LoFi AKAI chunk. There is something about the AKAI Sampling & hardware down-sampling process that sounds damn cool. These are drum hit samples of the two notorious TR Rhythm Composers via an AKAI S20.
Sampled @ the S20s native rate of 16bit/32khz, then internally down-sampled to 16khz & recaptured @ 24bit/96khz via Lynx converters. HiFi LoFi.
I found myself needing a VST plugin input destination while working on a current project. Not wanting to load a full featured cpu intensive VSTi just for routing purposes I was inspired to create this utility plugin. I also took the time to add a direct MIDI device output.
