HY-Plugins have released HY-Lofi, a freeware low fidelity multi-effect VST plugin featuring a combination of bitcrushing, distortion and multi-mode filtering.
The plugin seems almost too simple on first look, but the developer has included quite a few nifty features that make HY-Lofi a seriously useful and versatile distortion/bitcrusher effect. First off, there are two different flavors of bitcrushing to choose from, each with three different quality settings. By combining these settings and adjusting the value of the bitcrushing knob, you can squeeze tons of different lo-fi style effects out of HY-Lofi, ranging from very subtle digital sampler style crushing all the way to those super glitchy sounds that will make you check if your audio interface has suffered from any permanent damage.
