We recorded EVERY patch in the new RP150/155 set, and we’re putting them up here as fast as we can. You’re hearing my Fireball mic into the RP155, which goes into the first channel (line) input of my Peavey KB2 keyboard amp with 10″ speaker. The clips are recorded live with a Zoom H4 about 6 inches from the grill of the Peavey amp. No post-recording processing has been applied, and no other gear was used in the performances or recordings. Want to know what the thing sounds like? This is what it sounds like.
What it sounds like with the Audix Fireball V, that is, which is the mic I used. The Fireball is a strong, versatile, well-mannered mic that doesn’t add much distortion to the sound of the harp; typical blues mics distort the tone a lot more than the Fireball does. If you want to hear what different mics sound like with the RP, click here. Short summary: if you want to play a particular style, like Chicago blues, or rock, or bluegrass, or Bach, make sure you use a mic that’s appropriate to the style. The RP will do the rest.

Amped up and effected
Reverbs and Delays
Stay tuned for more! The first 27 patches in the RP set are amped-up, and the remaining 23 are all about reverbs and delays, great for all sort of acoustic styles, great also in front of a tube amp! We’ll publish the clips here as we get them uploaded.
