Mel-Lofi is a free virtual instrument plugin (ROMpler) for digital audio workstations on Windows and macOS.
This virtual instrument is based on the Mellotron samples recorded by KVR member Taijiguy and brings a total of 23 presets distributed across 5 main instrument categories.
All the samples were slightly edited and looped for best playability. Still, the sound is rough and unpolished to keep the original character.
For more versatility, 4 effect layers were added: vinyl, radio noise, mechanical belt noise, and rain. They each have an on/off button and volume sliders, also they’re labeled with their corresponding note on the keyboard.
The interface is simple to use with controls such as volume, pan, preset attack/release, also reverb, tune with 3 octaves, LFO modulation, and lowpass/highpass filter cutoff.
Mel-Lofi can be used in Lo-Fi Hip Hop, Ambient, Chillout, Pop, EDM, and other similar styles. It is available in VST/VST3 Windows and VST/VST3/AU macOS – compatible with the latest versions, also natively compatible with M1 chips.
