PSP 84 is a high-quality processor, capable of producing a wide variety of delay-based effects. Two independent delay lines operating with variable sampling rate and precise tape saturation algorithm with adjustable gain, allow for convincingly sounding simulation of tape delay, including all the exciting effects resulting from tape speed instability.

A filtration section consisting of three 2nd order switchable resonant filter types can be used to process input, feedback or wet signal. The adjustable slope of the filter ranges from a gentle curve, which is useful for simulating high frequency absorption typical for tape delay and wet signal equalization to an extremely steep curve with a high cutoff frequency peak, making all the wild wah-wah and resonance effects easily available.

Delay line sampling rate and filter cutoff can be modulated by any of the 5 LFO waveforms that are automatically synchronized to the sequencer tempo or envelope follower with adjustable sensitivity and attack/release.

Moreover, the PSP 84 contains the fully functional reverb unit, with simplified settings carefully tuned to exactly reproduce the sound of classic spring and plate reverberators.

Here are some key features of "PSP 84":
High quality, unique signal processing algorithms,
Up to 10 seconds of delay time per channel (depending on internal sampling frequency),
Continuous control over the delay time with little harmonic distortion,
Cross-channel feedback and independent channel settings with channel link mode,
Tape saturation simulation with adjustable gain based on the algorithm used in the line of our mastering processors,
Modulation section consisting of LFO and envelope follower mixed in any proportions,
5 click-free LFO waveforms and variable LFO channel phase offset,
LP, BP, HP filter with adjustable cutoff and resonance,
Flexible filter routing capabilities,
Vintage reverberation module for faithful simulation of spring and plate reverb characteristics,
Parameter filtration for smooth and click-free operation,
