LocFi 500 Series
LocFi is a ‘dynamic distortion unit’ based on the Shure Level-Loc PA Limiter from the 60’s. Featuring a unique character, this JFET based limiter provides the same aggressive compression from the original, with added functions which allow you to shape the effect from subtle texture to highly distorted and pumping sound.
Adapted to 500 Series format, and ready to interface with line level input and outputs, the device is built in a single slot unit, fully enclosed using a metal chassis to avoid noise from adjacent equipment.
It’s designed to provide characteristic sound, while being able to get different results and not being a ‘one trick horse’. With a unit like this, experimentation is the key.
Note: Using extreme settings, this processor can be noisy, we designed the device for a gritty, crunchy sound as something desirable.
