Rob Papen shows the new RP-Verb plugin

Rob announced that the development of his new plugin RP-Verb is in its final stages. Beta testing is next. A release would be possible later this month, depending on the beta test of course.

What we know already is that it gives the processed audio a surprisingly warm sound and new types of colouring. Looking at the GUI and the details, that have been released, we can’t hide the fact we are kinda excited.
