Product Description for the Rob Papen RP-Distort

RP-Distort is not just a distortion unit, but much more. The distortion unit inside RP-Distort can be combined with an analog modelled filter, compressor and widener unit.

These units can be re-order, but also can be turned on or off. So in case you only want a great analog modelled filter... RP-Distort can offer this. Or only the unique widener unit which is great for widening a boring mono track.

On top of that, the controls can be modulated using midi sources or by one of the 4 build in LFO?s that can sync to your host tempo..

The distortion unit offers 22 distortion types included ring modulator and lo-fi. Inside this section you can also find the EQ and noise-gate.

RP-Distort is in fact a wicked FX unit that will distort or alter your tracks in an inspirational way.

Distortion section:

  • Amp Simulator
    Amplifier simulation effect. Several types of amp types are simulated. Great for creating edgy sounds.Type of amp simulation. Settings are:- None, 4x10" guitar speakers, 4x12" guitar speakers, Bass speaker, Combo speaker and Radio speaker.Distort Amount of distortion added to the sound.
  • Cabinet Simulator
    Several types of cabinet types are simulated. Great for creating edgy sounds.Type of cabinet simulation. Settings are:- None,Fender,Marshall & Off Axis.Distort Amount of distortion added to the sound.
  • Clipper
    Hard clipper, this limits output which is to above or below the set clipping levelNegative The clipping level for the negative signal. From 0% (no clipping) to 100% (maximum clipping).Positive The clipping level for positive signal. From 0% (no clipping) to 100% (maximum clipping).Amount, the amount of clipping from 0% (no clipping) to 100% (fully clipped)

  • Hard-limiter
    Hard limiter, this limits output which is to above or below the set limit level and thenboosts the signal.Limit The clipping level for the signal. From 0% (no limiting) to 100% (maximum limiter).Amount, The amount of post-limiting boosting.
  • Low-Fi
    Low-Fi effect, this reduces the sample & bit rate & adds noise to the signal.Bits Bit level of the signal.Sample Rate Sample rate of the signal.Noise Amount of noise added to the signal.
  • OverDrive 
    Over-drive effectDrive, Drive for the over-drive effectAmount Over-drive mixing amount.
  • Octave 1

    Octave effect type 2,Frequency Frequency of the octave effect.Amount, Amount of octave effect.
  • Power
    Power wave-shaping effect.Drive, drive for the power effectAmount, Power mixing amount.
  • Rectify
    Rectifies the signal, by multiplying the negative signalRectification Rectification of the negative signal, from -100% (no rectification), 0% (half rectification) to 100% (full rectification)  Amount, Rectification mixing amount.
  • Ring Modulation
    The ring modulates (multiplies) different signals together depending on the type.Type Sine, Saw, Sqr & Tri, multiplies the input with the set oscillator.Frequency Sets the oscillator frequency.Amount Sets the ring modulation amount.
  • Saturate
    Saturation effect.Saturation Saturation levelAmount Saturation mixing amount
  • SoftLimit
    Soft-limiter effectAmount Soft-limiter amount
  • Squarify
    Squares the signal (turns it to a square wave), and then lowpass filter it.Negative Amount the negative signal is turned to a square wavePositive Amount the positive signal is turned to a square waveFilter Amount this square wave is lowpass filtered.
  • Transient
    Distorts the transients, i.e. the beginnings of sounds.Range Transient rangeAmount Transient distortion amount.
  • Tube Simulator
    Tube distortion effect, by saturating, limiting, rectifying and bandpass filtering the input.Limit, Hard limiter threshold.Rect Amount of rectification, from -100% (no change), 0% (half) to 100% (full).Saturate Amount of saturation..Tone Frequency of the band pass filter.Emphasis Bandwidth of the band pass filter.

EQ Unit (inside the distortion section):

  • 4 Band Equalizer effect.   
  • On/Off The “EQ” label turns on & off the EQ effect.
  • Low 125 Hz volumeMid 1 500 Hz volumeMid 2 2 kHz volumeHigh 8 kHz volume

Noise gate (inside the distortion section):

  • Noise gate unit, the noise-gate is an audio effect that removes any sound (‘gates’) that is below a threshold volume.
  • On / Off The “Gate” label turns on / off the noise-gate effect.
  • Threshold This sets the threshold on which the noise-gate starts to work.
  • Attack This sets how fast the noise-gate returns to normal after the input volume is over the threshold.
  • Hold This sets how long the input volume has to below the threshold volume before the noise-gate is triggered.
  • Release This sets how long the noise-gate takes to reduce the volume to zero after the noise-gate is triggered.

Filter section:

  • RP-Distort has a low & high pass filter, in the order low-pass filter then high-pass filter   
  • 12 / 24dB Selects between a 12dB and a 24dB filterLow Frequency of the low pass 
  • filterLow Q Resonance of the low pass filterHigh Frequency of the high pass filterHigh Q Resonance of the high pass filter


  • audio compressor with on/off selector
  • threshold, ratio, attack, release and volume paramters


  • 4x free modulation routings with amount control
  • 4x LFO with, tempo based sync mode,  waveform, speed, human feel, symmetry control
