Arp87 delay on synth: Simple yet interesting, flavorsome yet mild

video upload by Richard DeHove

"No matter how many high-end delays you have there's always a place for a small and simple mono. The Walrus Audio Arp87 has a lot going for it: obvious operation, five delay modes, good sound, small footprint and tap tempo. Against that the modulation is a bit seasick and it's not cheap.

It's also rather Roland-esque in that it won't let you do anything too weird. It won't go anywhere near 100% wet, it has no delay time knob and it won't self-oscillate.

This was bought with my own money and it was annoyingly expensive. So nothing's perfect and perhaps this is just another stop on the never-ending delay pedal quest.
