The PSP 84 is a plug-in capable of producing a wide variety of delay-based effects. Two independent delay lines operating with variable sampling rate and tape saturation algorithm with adjustable gain, allow for simulation of tape delay, including the 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 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.

The PSP 84 is primarily meant for processing individual tracks within a mix and experimenting with drum and synth loops. Though it can be successfully used for adding classic sounding delay, its capabilities go far beyond that. The PSP 84's independent channel settings and cross-channel feedback allow for creating animated delay effects that are more spatial and cut better through the mix than a simple center-panned delay. Resonant filters and a modulation section that synchronizes to the host tempo make it possible to create superb auto-wah-wah effects, warm smoky dub sweeps, evolving ambient textures, as well as to easily shape the wet signal's spectral contents. The PSP 84 can create both pristine clean sounding echoes or degenerate the signal to great extent - all depending on your needs. Guitarists that are not satisfied with dry and cold sounding tracks recorded using direct-boxes will appreciate saturation algorithm, great for adding mild overdrive and harmonic contents enrichment. Last but not least, the unique reverberation unit allows for adding space and warmth that most of the digital reverbs lack.
