The Low-Quality Effect Of The Early 2000’s

With Citrus Crusher, you can effortlessly transport your audio back to the early 2000s. Dial in that nostalgic feel of low-quality MP3s, cellphone recordings, and CD burns in just a few clicks.

Unlike a regular bit-crusher effect this effect degrades audio and compresses it simultaneously. Bit-crushing and compression together can create unique and interesting sound textures and character. The combination of reduced bit depth and compression can produce gritty, lo-fi, or vintage sounds that may not be achievable with either effect alone.

The name ‘Citrus Crusher’ pays homage to the popular software of that era, Limewire™. LimeWire™ was a peer-to-peer file-sharing website that allowed users to download and share content online for free, often low-quality MP3 versions of songs. Whether it’s vocals, melodies, or recordings you can use Citrus Crusher to give your listeners the nostalgic, lo-fi, low-quality feel of the early 2000s downgraded MP3s.
