2 weeks ago, I made the review of RF-1. A Reverb, but not only… today, I am making the review of RP-1 a delay, but not only…
The UI is separated in 2 sections. On the top the “First” delay with 6 rotary knobs. A High and Lowpass, a Feedback, a Time, a Mix and a Spread which allows you to control the effect stereo field. On the right side, a sync switch (RP -1 comes with the Ableton Link feature). When enable you will be able to control the delay Time with Clock subdivision instead of time. (Cool!) Below a Loop switch will set the Time at which the input signal is delayed and to finish a Bypass (for this section).
The second section is The Mod Section. The first knob on the left side allows you to select one of 7 different algorithms: Chorus, Vibrato, Flanger, Panner, Phaser, Tremolo & Delay. As you can see, you have another delay here… A Panner too which is really great because of the lack of Auto Panner in the App Store… The 3 other knobs: Feedback, Amount and Frequency. On the Right side, a Pre and a Post switch. A Bypass for this section too. To conclude, RP-1 is a Multi Fx. 2 can be used at the same time. The quality of processing is great. Some effect like the Vibrato, the Tremolo and the Panner are not very widespread in the App Store, so… A Killer App, a Must Have!
