I've been digging around for a few weeks now and trying nearly every effect on the 404sx but I can't seem to get this warpy lo-fi piano sound that I'm after:

(beat under the video at 4:45 - it should link to the right place)
https://youtu.be/7E8HHPX6PxE?t=281

Does anyone have any tips? I'm usually all for figuring out stuff myself, I love the journey, but this is driving me mad. I can't even get anywhere close.

I have a feeling the older SPs might be the answer?

Well, yes. An older SP might be more lofi. But there's still stuff to try with your SX. I've been on an SP-timeout for some time For the warbly/seasick thing you can try the flutter on the Vinyl Sim fx, fx16. The audio is grainy in a stretched kind of way, try to change the bpm of the sample playing (if I remember correctly). The high end being filtered away can be due to sampling with a low samplerate, But see what you get with the Lowpassfilter and EQ. Resampling stuff many times is never a bad idea for complex lofi textures. If you resample a sound ten or 20 times with different fx you can sculpt almost anything. Good luck!

I figured maybe more resampling could help yeah. I've detuned a few samples to good effect and also started messing with the DJ looper last night using the second control as it kind of has a pitch shifting effect if you are careful and precise with it. I guess I just need to keep experimenting...

I will try what you have suggested and see what I can come up with.

Thanks a lot

Vinyl comp on the 303 gets you pretty close to that sound, maybe it was bounced to tape along the way for some extra flutter.
