RP Distort

Distortion by Rob Papen

SPECIAL OFFER: Purchase RP Distort and get the RP-AMOD (multi-effect) plugin FREE!

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-ordered, but can also 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.?


Presets Section:

  • Uses sound banks composed of 128 presets.
  • Preset handling with copy, paste, clear and compare function.´Quick Browser´, ´Recently Browsed´ and ´Favorite´ functions.All settings are stored inside each preset.
  • Presets are stored in clear categories banks.


  • External controller hardware (fader-box) settings can be saved and restored.

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.


  • 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). The amount of clipping from 0% (no clipping) to 100% (fully clipped).


  • Cosine distortion effect. Frequency, Frequency of the cosine effect. Amount, Amount of cosine distortion

Cross 1:

  • Cross, Position for cross distortionAmount, Amount of cross distortion

Cross 2:

  • Negative Cross distortion position for the negative signalPositive Cross distortion position for the positive signal.Amount, Amount of cross distortion


  • Fold-over distortion, this amplifies and then ‘folds over’ the sound. Frequency Frequency of the fold-over distortion. Amount, Amount of fold-over distortion


  • Fuzz-box distortion, Frequenter Frequency of the fuzz-distortion effect amount, Amount of fuzz distortion


  • Gapper distortion, Frequency Frequency of the gapper distortion effect amount, Amount of fuzz distortion


  • 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 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.


  • Over-drive effectDrive, Drive for the over-drive effectAmount Over-drive mixing amount.

Octave 1:

  • Octave effect, this shifts the sound up an octave,Negative Mixing for the negative signalPositive Mixing for the positive signal.

Octave 2:

  • Octave effect type 2,Frequency Frequency of the octave effect.Amount, Amount of octave effect.


  • Power wave-shaping effect.Drive, drive for the power effectAmount, Power mixing amount.


  • 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.


  • Saturation effect.Saturation Saturation levelAmount Saturation mixing amount


  • Soft-limiter effectAmount Soft-limiter amount


  • 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.


  • 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 filter
  • Low Frequency of the low pass filter
  • Low Q Resonance of the low pass filter
  • High Frequency of the high pass filter
  • High Q Resonance of the high pass filter


  • Audio compressor with on/off selector
  • Threshold, ratio, attack, release and volume parameters


  • 4x free modulation routings with amount control
  • 4x LFO with, tempo based sync mode, waveform, speed, human feel, symmetry control
  • Bypass button for all active modulations
  • Global amount control for all active modulations
