“This is Scratchpad.
A totally free VST Instrument plugin developed by Patent Sounds. This plugin was built with LOFI in mind however the sounds included are going to complement almost any genre of music well.
The plugin comes with 12 Instrument presets split into Keys, Bells, Basses & Lead sounds. These presets were carefully selected and sampled by the Patent Sounds team and bundled together with some cool features to complete the Plugin.
The 12 presets included with Scratchpad were carefully picked out and sampled to fit the LOFI aesthetic, But these sounds are also going to work great in other subgenres of hip hop too! Smooth Keys, Beautiful Bells & Lush Leads.
With Scratchpad’s built-in noise generators, you can manually add a mix of noise to your sound instantly making them sound more “Retro”. Choose from Vinyl, Tape, or Rain noises and mix them with your tonal sound to really give it a different texture.
We combined Chorus, Distortion, and Wow/Flutter to make up the “Lofiness” section of the plugin. These effects can be used together to create a really degraded or aged effect. Just don’t take the wobble effect past the too-much point! You have been warned.
