Audio Damage announces Ricochet

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jan 10, 2008 - comment 4 comments

Audio Damage has announced Ricochet, a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use multi-tap delay, with the signature Audio Damage sound.

Audio Damage Ricochet

From the product page:

Featuring a 16-step grid for programming tap time, Ricochet is right at home in modern electronic music production, designed specifically for that context, and is much quicker to program than the run-of-the-mill multi-tap.

Ricochet features

  • Five independently controllable taps with individual multi-mode filter, panning, level, sync, mute, solo, and time.
  • Unique dual-filter model for overall tone control.
  • Two feedback modes (master and tap).
  • A specially designed chorus that affects only the taps, for feedback smearing effects.
  • Tempo-sync or free time operation per tap and overall.
  • Full MIDI learn for CC control of every parameter (VST only).

Ricochet will shortly be available for Windows PC and Mac (VST/AU) for $49 USD.

u-he plug-ins

    Apparently,Audio Damage must have a loyal following because
    they don’t offer demos of their products.

    Listening to Audio clips that may have nothing to do with the style of music you produce, is lame, for a lack of a better way to put it at this moment.

    The importance of having a demo is to allow you to test a plugin in your Daw/s to see if any conflicts exist. Some vst’s crash certain host or may simply not work in your Daw.

    Unfortunately,you can only find out these things after making a purchase and not beforehand! Most plugin makers advocate testing one of their demos before making a purchase, in order to ensure that it fits your needs, given the fact that software in non returnable!

    Has anyone here, bought their products on blind faith?

    Lots of people buy AD products blindly, and their plug-ins are usually very stable right from v1.0.

    Although they don’t offer demos, their return policy is great.

    From the faq:
    What if I don’t like the product, or it doesn’t work for me?
    We offer a 100% no-questions-asked return policy for 30 days from your purchase, and you can exchange the plugin for 120 days from purchase. As far as we know, this is the most liberal return policy in the industry, and almost unheard of for software. All you have to do is drop us a line, and we’ll get you sorted out.

    Yeah. I’ll buy anything AD puts out if it seems like it will be useful. I don’t own everything they’ve done, but Dr. Device and Replicant are the balls, and Vapor/Liquid/Fluid are subtle but really useful for all kinds of tasks – and I generally use flangers and chorus almost never.

    Between the reasonable price (most companies would bleed you for what you’re getting from AD) and the return policy, I don’t think you can fault ‘em for not wanting to support demos.

    This looks very useful, and, as always, the GUI is brilliant.

    Yeah, I’m a fan.

    Ok, I see the light!That return policy is unheard of.
    Now, it makes far more sense why someone would blindly pay $50 without a test run.Thanks for the info.
