PSP Audioware 84
The PSP 84 is an in depth delay plug-in that has all sorts of filtering and other effects in addition to delay. I no longer run this plug-in within my current rig ever since I made the switch to Pro Tools. It does come in VST and RTAS formats, and I was running it a VST version of it in Cubase SX. I can't recall having any problems installing this plug-in if I did have any, but the process should be easy enough unless you are having some sort of technical issue. The interface of the plug-in is pretty in depth, and it definitely took me a couple of uses to be able to recognize everything going on here. For me it was really just about trial and error to learn all of the parameters, as this isn't your typical effects processor and it will take a minute or two to get a grasp on everything. I haven't seen the manual, but if you can get your hands on one it might be a good thing to have handy.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Until I switched over to Pro Tools a number of years ago, I was running the PSP 84 plug-in on a Hewlett Packard PC lap top that had a 3.0 Ghz processor and 2 GB of RAM. I ran it as a VST plug-in in Cubase SX 2.0 mostly, and later on in 3. I never had any really bad issues running the plug-in since I used it somewhat sparingly and only in situations where I was looking for some complex delay. However, it is a plug-in that will take up a good amount of processing power, so if you don't have the quickest system in the world you probably won't be able to run too many of these at a time.

OVERALL OPINION

I overall feel fondly of the PSP 84, as I think it's a very powerful plug-in that has a lot to offer. It's sound is generally clean, but to a degree does sound a bit digital. This isn't too big a deal considering the type of plug-in that it is, and the PSP 84 more than makes up for this with it's versatility. I also really like the presets that it has to offer, as many times I found that some of the presets were better than what I could do with it myself, or at the very least were good starting points. This plug-in isn't too expensive, but isn't as cheap as I think it should be, which is really my only complaint about the PSP 84. Otherwise it's a very good sounding plug-in with a great design and sound bank.
