Regrader is a free lo-fi delay VST effect for PC and Mac, which offers multiple audio-degrading modules and gets you really interesting lo-fi effects.
In terms of modules, you have a lot to choose from. At the core you have echoes with controls of delay time, feedback and a mix knob for the dry & wet amount as well as a resonant low-pass filter, which can be modulated. For more unique controls, you get Gravel and Warble which control the stereo and pitch modulation, where as Horror utilizes a bit crusher to distort the feedback signal.
The vintage DOS inspired user interface matches the sonic qualities perfectly and is laid out well with all control parameters clearly labeled and accessible. Something lo-fi producers surely will appreciate. While the sound is what ultimately matters, enjoying the look of the plugin and getting inspired when producing lo-fi music is certainly important as well.
