Lofelt is now embarking on a new adventure, and we will sunset our products on July 7th, 2022. We truly appreciate the support and feedback you have provided since we launched Lofelt Studio.

We have enjoyed working with you all on our first product, the Basslet, our wide-band voice coil haptic actuators, and recently building our haptic design apps across desktop and mobile platforms.

As we move forward, we want to make sure that you have ample time to finish up any projects you have started with Studio and can transition away from our tools.

What is happening to Lofelt Studio?

Lofelt has decided to end support for our desktop and mobile Lofelt Studio apps. They will no longer function after July 7th, 2022. Existing customers will be able to continue to use the Lofelt SDK and Nice Vibrations Unity asset to play back their haptics within their mobile apps. However, it is essential to export all existing haptic designs before we sunset Lofelt Studio.

Will the apps still work after today?

If you have purchased Lofelt Studio before today, the apps will continue to work until July 7th, 2022. After that point in time, the apps will no longer function.

Can I get refunded for my Lofelt Studio subscription?

We appreciate your support of Studio, and therefore we will automatically refund you before the applications go offline. If you have any questions, please reach out to [email protected].

Can I still download Lofelt Studio?

From now on, Studio desktop is only available for users that already have a subscription.

If you have a subscription but don't have the latest version of Studio on your machine, please get in touch with [email protected] for further download instructions.

How do I export my data from Lofelt Studio?

To export your haptic data from Lofelt Studio, navigate to the File > Export menu item. You can export a single haptic clip or multiple haptic clips at once.

You can export a .ahap file and integrate it with the CoreHaptics framework on iOS. Or you can export a .haptic file used by the Lofelt SDK or Nice Vibrations Unity asset.

How can I delete all of my personal data?

On July 7th, 2022, all data surrounding Lofelt Studio will be automatically deleted. There is no specific action required from you.

What is happening to Nice Vibrations?

Nice Vibrations will no longer be available as an individual package on the Unity Asset Store. Instead, it will transition to become an open-source project. However, the prebuilt package will continue to be available as part of More Mountains' award-winning FEEL framework.

You can continue using the package and release games if you've already downloaded Nice Vibrations from the Asset Store. Nice Vibrations will continue to work as before. The API documentation is available as code comments in the C# script files.

We genuinely appreciate your support and feedback. It has helped us immensely to improve Nice Vibrations.

When will this happen?

In June, Nice Vibrations will be removed from the Unity Asset Store. The process of open-sourcing Nice Vibrations will take some time, but we hope to have it completed in the near future. Check lofelt.com for updates on this.

What is the future of Nice Vibrations?

We will open-source Nice Vibrations and make it available under a permissive license on GitHub for the Unity community.

This includes all Nice Vibrations code and all code for the Lofelt SDK for iOS and Android. It also contains the audio and haptic files of the haptic pack.

As soon as we've made Nice Vibrations available on GitHub, we'll release a new 4.1.2 version containing bug fixes already in development. The release will be on GitHub and will be included in the next update of More Mountains' FEEL.

Can I get a refund for my Nice Vibrations purchase?

Unity will notify you of the available refund options.

What happens to my personal data?

Lofelt will remove all your personal data by July 7th, 2022. Again, this is automatic; no specific action is required from you.

Will I still be able to edit my haptic files

We will also sunset Lofelt Studio on July 7th, 2022 so after that, you will not be able to edit your haptic files with Lofelt Studio. Please see the above Lofelt Studio sunset announcement for more information.

Playing back haptic clip files with Nice Vibrations or the Lofelt SDK for iOS and Android will continue to work.

Haptic clips (.haptic) are plain text JSON files, so you can edit them in any JSON editor.

We would like to thank you again for all of your support, and if you have any additional questions, feel free to contact us.

All the best from Berlin,

The Lofelt team
