Inphonik pay homage to the SP1200 by releasing the RX1200, a software incarnation of the 80’s classic. The RX1200 is available for £26.00.
With its gritty digital sound for sequencing fat beats, the ability to build musical phrases with 32 sample slots, and its warm filters for efficiently capturing bass lines from vinyl, the SP-1200 is a monument to beatmaking that gave music producers huge new possibilities.
Inphonik are honored to show you our take on a groundbreaking machine that no less helped the emergence of new styles of modern music, bringing the classic approach to beatmaking into your DAW.
The RX1200 is a beatmaker’s sandbox tool. It’s a one-of-a-kind sampler ready to inspire your productions with experimentation, happy accidents, and that lovely distinctive lofi sound.
At the heart of the RX1200 is Inphonik’s commitment to faithfully reproducing the signature sound of the SP-1200. Besides the obvious 12-bit resolution, the 26.041 kHz sample rate, and the SSM2044 low-pass filter emulation, the RX1200 perfectly matches the aliased down-pitch tuning that delivers the SP-1200. With its distinctive grit, crunch, and warmth, the RX1200 puts the inimitable 12-bit sound into your music.
Rather than making a 1:1 copy of the SP-1200, Iphonik designed the RX1200 as a more straightforward instrument with an easy learning curve.
By removing the onboard sequencer, Inphonik built their vision of an audio plugin that integrates flawlessly with any DAW and puts sample performance at the forefront of your creative process.
It would be a shame not to take advantage of your computer mouse. The sample editor makes it easy to browse, truncate, normalize, reverse, loop and assign your sounds across the 4 banks of 8 pads. It’s an efficient and intuitive way to craft your own presets for building your grooves.
Packed with a Factory Collection of 900+ samples built into 50 presets, the RX1200 is ready to perform out of the box.

- 122 Kicks

- 169 Hi-hats
