The Low Fidelity effect creates interference effects, so-called quantification errors, by reducing the bit rate. Noise can be heard when the bit rate is dramatically reduced. If the sample rate is reduced, the audio file sounds duller and less detailed.       
The following setting options are available:

Bit depth/sample rate

Shows the change in the two sliders below the graph.

Slider
Bit Depth

Specifies the bit depth. Audio CDs have a bit depth of 16, for example.

Slider
Sample Rate

Specifies the sample rate. Audio CDs have a sample rate of 44100 Hz.

 
Sample Rate
The sample rate indicates the frequency with which a signal is sampled per interval of time. It is measured in sampling values per second. The higher the sample rate the more precise the measurement, and the better the audio quality.

Bit Depth
Bit depth indicates the precision with which an oscillation vibration will be captured. The greater the value, the more accurate is the acquisition and the better is the audio quality.
