PSP Audioware PSP 608 MultiDelay
- Did you have any problems during the installation?

No problems at all. I only pressed a button and everything was done automatically...pretty normal, I'd say.

- Did you have any incompatibility problems?

None, I didn't install it on many systems, only WinXP and Cubase SX3. It works awesome.

- Is the overall configuration easy?

HahaAAA! It's a Rube Goldberg machine. You can adjust so many things... It takes quite sometime to get familiar with it. I recommend using a snare hit in loops and a click, and in 2-3 hours you ought to know how it works. You end up noticing it's not that complicated... Everything can be automatized, which is good :D
Why is there no TDM version? This plug-in is very resources-intensive and there's no TDM version? That's not cool, Mr. PSP... 7/10 because there's no TDM

PERFORMANCE

- What's your computer? (motherboard/CPU/RAM/HDD/sound card..)

WinXP with Core2Duo 3.2GHz, 2Gb RAM CORSAIR, Motu 2408MK3 soundcard

- Does the software work correctly with your setup?

Impeccably well.

- How is the performance?

See below.

- What about the hardware/software configuration stability?

Everything works fine. But it's very resources-intensive, so 8/10 for that.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you been using the product?

I've had the demo version for not so long, but I plan to buy the real one.

- Which features do you like the most / the least?

Pros: This plug-in is magical. The algorithm is very meticulous, the delays you can get from it are simply magical. Actually, I liked the plug-in so much that I searched whether there was a hardware version. Apparently, this is no emulation of a pre-existing unit, like the psp42 for example.

So, yes, I'd say this is THE delay for music creation, electronic, dub and many other styles...

- Did you try any other models before buying it?

I tried out hardware and plug-ins, including the Waves 6TAP delay in TDM version, and I think this one is more evolved, much more meticulously conceived and with a better overall audio quality. It has a warmth and depth that the 6TAP lacks.

- How would you rate its value for money?

I haven't bought it yet, but I've seen it costs $145 online, together with other great delays. I think it's a good value for money if you want a delay pack up to the job.

- Based on your experience, would you choose this product again?

I actually chose this product based on my experience :D

9/10, because, apparently, even after using it for a long time, it's hard to get to the limits of its possibilities.

Yes, it installed without any problems at all. As for compatibility issues it has had none so far. It does seem to take a lot of "thought" by my computer to get it open but no problems once it is there. The configuration and setup is very simple. I pretty much figured out how to use this device in a matter of minutes. It pretty much is a bunch of faders each set up to start playing the selected audio again. You use the fader to select when the "replay" is going to start and then tweak the volume, effects, etc.. for each one of those replays. In all honesty, I have not needed to reference the manual yet. I am sure there are a few things that would increase my efficiency on the plugin, but so far I can do what I need very easily.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I have a MacBook (2.2ghz, 4gb ram, 320HD) running Logic 8 with a Presonus Firepod and Firebox. So far there has been no problems with the plugin. As for performance, as I mentioned earlier, my computer seems to have to work fairly hard to get it open, nothing crazy like super long wait times or anything, it just takes two to three times longer than most of other plugins. Just seems kinda strange. Other than that it works great 10 out of 10 times i use it. I have had no crashing or problems saving presets so I say its Stable.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using the 608 for about a month. What I like about it the most is its surprising ease of use. It looks very complicated and I am sure it probably does more than what I think, it took me only minutes to learn the basics myself. Another plus is that it lets you get into delay options you could never have with a traditional delay pedals. I mean you can effect each delay or "repeat" in so many ways that each "delay" can sound entirely different. One fun thing to do is set up the 608 to delay a vocal, but instead of just repeating the last phrase quieter each time, you can also increase the amount of distortion and reverb so that by the time you hear the last echo you will have heard a voice go from clean delay to just a distorted "wall of sound" kinda thing. Cool stuff. I have a few delay plugins as well as a few hardware ones but I have never really messed around with a "multi-delay" set up like this before. It really elevates the delay effect to another level. Psp offers pretty good stuff for not so huge prices, so thats good, but it is hard to shell out more than $100 dollars for a single effect, even when you got a good studio budget. But, all in all, it does its job very well so I think it is worth it. This has become a staple for me to run a idea through, so I would definitely make the same choice again.
