400% more horsepower. No wonder the RP350 modeling guitar pedal sounds so good. You're looking at the one of the world's most advanced audio processors, the 'engine' that gives RP models so much more raw impact and subtle detail. Many manufacturers use general-purpose, off-the-shelf chips. But creating the best guitar tone requires a 100% specialized, optimized processor. Being total audio processing fanatics, DigiTech 'Chip Wizard' engineers set out to create a super-processor specifically designed to power a whole new generation of effects and models. The design team worked for over two years, literally re-defining audio signal processing at the chip level. Then 'Tone Guru' engineersfresh from Production Modeling triumphs like the Jimi Hendrix Experience Artist Series pedalset to work taking advantage of all this new raw processing power. When you hear what AudioDNA2 does for the tone of the DigiTech RP350 you'll agree it was all worth it.
I think this multi-effects unit is capable of a lot more than most folks will have the patience or curiosity to get out of it. You really need to explore the unit.
The Expression Pedal on the RP350 can be linked to control the RP350s Volume, Wah, Whammy , YaYa, or almost any of the RP350s other parameters in real time with your foot. When a parameter has been linked to the Expression Pedal, a minimum (heel) and maximum (toe) value can also be specified. Apply extra pressure to the toe of the Expression Pedal to activate
he V-switch, and the Expression Pedal switches between the linked parameter and the Wah. The procedure for linking a parameter to the Expression Pedal is as follows:
1. Press either Edit button until the Expression row has been selected (indicated by the LED lighting on the Expression row).
2. Rotate Knob 1 until EXPPDL appears in the Display.
3. Rotate Knob 2 until the desired parameter to be linked appears in the Display. See page 30 for a complete list of parameters that can be linked to the Expression Pedal.
4. Rotate Knob 3 to select the minimum (heel) value the assigned parameter will reach with the Expression Pedal in the toe up position.
5. Rotate Knob 4 to select the maximum (toe) value the assigned parameter will reach with the Expression Pedal in the toe down position.
6. Store your Expression Pedal assignment to your preset. See page 12 for more information on the storing procedure
The DigiTech RP350, powered by the new AudioDNA2 super chip, delivers incredible tone and a mountain of processing power, including Lexicon Reverbs and stomp boxes based on the TS808, Big Muff Pi, Rat and DOD 250. This resource is a review summary of an RP350 video found on YouTube by northlander30.
Available at American Musical Supply for $129.95. If you're looking for a ton of presets and amp/cab simulations, this just might be the all in one solution for you.
Cool chorus is fantastic. 70 factory presets that can't be changed, but 70 user presets that are modifiable. With every preset, you have amp A and B so you can change through the 30 different amps and 20 different cab models (approximate.) Included pedal on the board helps to shape tones, introduce wah, and other cool effects.
Occasional strange artifacts in some of the presets, but ability to tweak with software can help round out strange sound anomalies.
For $129, this unit seems pretty well built. Whether it can stand the test of road abuse can only be analyzed if you've been able to use one for an extended period of time.
A decent number of presets and functionality for folks who don't mind multi-effects processors. If you're into boutique quality sound, you may want to avoid this unit, but if you like the buffet approach, the RP350 may be for you.
Actually, I like this unit even less than before. There isn't much to like.
Where to begin. As noted in the prior review, this unit died after two hours. I later discovered that using the onboard controls to tweak settings while having it plugged into the computer resulted in a "fatal error" fault--shutting the thing down.
Basically the computer editing software is worthless. Even more so, if your computer uses the Vista OS. And forget about it if you're running any version of Linux.
DigiTech claims to have addressed the issue of Vista compatibility with a major firmware and X-Edit Revision. I just spent two hours trying to install the revisions. As I anticipated, the instructions provided by DigiTech's website do not work.
The hardware construction is superb.
Unfortunately, the firmware and software are worthless.
If I had this purchase to do over, I would not purchase this unit. Other units in this price range have on/off switches and operate on batteries as well as having superior features.
Pass this unit by. There are better units out there which are less trouble.
I have been a guitar player for over 35 years--mainly as a hobby. Sometimes in church.
I purchased this unit yesterday from Musician's Friend--needing a good multiFX pedal. I paid $180.00 for it.
What attracted me to the unit was that it had a USB port for use as an interface for recording guitar on computer--also Digitech provides [through their website] software which allows the user to edit and save patches on computer. In addition, the unit has two XLR outputs (L/R) which allow the user to run it direct to a mixer for either recording to run signal through onstage monitors in live performance.
The quality of the unit is crap. It has a metal case--which should indicate a stageworthy unit. However, if the casing was made from gold or platinum, this would still be worthless junk since the circuitry inside is crappy. Having owned this less than a day this thing shot craps when I tried to make some usable patches for myself.
As noted earlier, the outside construction is heavy duty--however digitech must not be putting quality circuitry in their units since it died after less than a day of light use.
