2 new effects for Prime 4

When are these effects coming to Prime 4?

Two brand new BPM FX: Echohold and Pumper


Where are you seeing that?

Probably from the X1800 v1.3 release.

It has parts of an X1800. Some things will transfer to the Prime4, but not all. That it “should” is an opinion.

Since the Prime 4 has a X1800 mixer, most “should” transfer and hopefully they do. Most people would conclude that.

It has not. It shares the philosophy, components and parts of an X1800. The PCB is not the same.

The Prime 4 needs these improvements badly


What does the “echo hold” actually do?

This effect applies an echo that, when the FX Amount knob is turned clockwise past the center point, hold repeats on the last echo. Turning the FX Amount Knob back counter-clockwise past the center point removes the echo hold.


Cheers fellah

It is an Echo loop that was already on older denon players and x1500 mixer - great effect. Loops the tail of the echo.
