Easy ef­fects

Computer Music - - Reviews / Waves Electric Grand 80 -

The Yamaha CP-80 fea­tured a three-band EQ and a Tre­molo mod­ule, both of which are in­cluded in Waves’ reimag­in­ing of it, along with four fur­ther ef­fects.

The Tre­molo is the same as the orig­i­nal, but with the ad­di­tion of host sync (from 2/1 to 1/32, with dot­ted and triplet op­tions) to the free-run­ning 0.25-28Hz speed range.

More mo­du­la­tion-based pro­cess­ing comes in the shape of Au­topan, Phaser and Cho­rus ef­fects. The last of th­ese is gen­er­ated by four LFO-con­trolled de­lays but only per­mits ad­just­ment of Depth, while Au­topan and Phaser both in­clude synced and un­synced speed ad­just­ment as well as Depth con­trol and, for the Phaser, a wet/dry Mix knob.

The Re­verb ef­fect’s four con­trols let you set the re­verb Time, Pre­de­lay, high-fre­quency Damp­ing and Mix bal­ance.

Each ef­fect has its own by­pass but­ton, and all can be knocked out col­lec­tively with the global by­pass at the left-hand end of the rack.
