MGR/Anonymous's review"Digitech PRX400"

DigiTech RPX400
money is how i paid for it ...i purchased this fine piece of eqiupment at guitar center in sac.for about 299.00 plus tax..and why cause it had the features i was lookin for.pretty common sense i think

i really like the recording features and some of the effects...not all cause some are just too wierd and not great with the recording software but overall a nice unit

theres nothing i can think of that i dont like about this effect...it does everything i want too and then some.. 2 thumbs up here

very well built sturdy and would gig with it if possible

i would highly recommend this to anyone with little computer knowledge and feels like your good enough to record themselfs...bottom line it takes patience with this thing and it pays back with double from what your expecting..patience is the key though..good luck

Bought this unit at Full Score Music in St. Clair Shores, MI. Paid $300.00 US

This unit is really amazing. The versitality for all of the inputs and outputs will let you do so much. The cabinet and amp modeling is cool and sounds right on. Included software is easy to use once you read the manual and is very clean sounding, you can even burn the songs to a CD. Really inspires you to make some songs.

Nothing really, i love this thing!!!

Great construction. Not too heavy, metal case, expression pedal has a good feel. All input and output jacks are solid and secure.

This unit is a great buy for someone who wants to have some fun recording or who wants tons of effects in a single package. For the money, it really cant be beat.

$299 from GuitarCenter, Beaverton Oregon, USA

This is such a great recording unit for musicians who are not recording experts. If you have a computer, even a small laptop, it provides all of the amp modeling, effects processing, and preamps you need to really drive your recording to the next level. It comes with ProTracks - a variant of Cakewalk - which works superbly. You really can throw down a rhythm track, bass track, vocals, and drums in about an hour, mix it and burn it in about another hour. That is fast for a four to eight track recording for taking demos to my band. The sound quality is amazing! I took a 'two hour special' to an engineer friend of mine, and while he would have done more sound processing prior to a mixdown, his first comment was that he was amazed at the signal clarity. Once you have learned a little more about mixing, of course, Cakewalk/ProTracks allows you to do pretty much anything you like such as compression, reverb post effects, slicing and dicing, etc.
This box is the equivalent of buying an M-Box (or othe high quality outboard sound and preamp card) AND a PODXT (or other modeling unit). You also get XEdit librarian so you can catalog and tweak your personal programmed amp/effects setups on your computer (athough the basic editing on the unit with 40 factory presets, 40 artist presets and 40 user presets) is pretty good. You also get a pretty good sounding drum machine, a playalong capability, and it acts as a great stage amp direct to a PA!
For this money, there is absolutely nothing that compares. Digitech has put a lot into a small high quality bundle.

I had difficulty getting the Drum MIDI sounds onto a recorded Audio track, so went back to using my normal LeafDrums software package and importing audio drum tracks.
Like any multi-function do-it-all-and-then-some unit, learning the controls is half ofthe battle. The controls are multi-purpose and depend on modes of operation. It takes a bit of getting used to, but patience is rewarded.

Superior. The case is metal, and buttons are big and footworthy. This unit is as happy alongside my computer on a desktop, as it is on a stage. Everything is laid out well.

For a guitarist/bassist songwriter looking to get into home recording, who is computer literate, but doesnt want to spend $1000+ on a dedicated 8-track or 16-track, this unit is excellent.
It allows rapid development of song ideas to full blown produced demos. With a little care, it could probalby be used to create full production quality CD's. It does everything it says it does, and at a quality that exceeds expectations.

Already discussed and detailed. Full effects and adjustable at will.
Comes with a good recording software (Cakewalk) pretty cool and software (Xedit) of Setting sounds.
USB port and can download sounds on the Internet.


Configuration using intuitive multi-effects
A little more complex recording but the manual is well done


-The sounds and combinations of plants are many and still is very typical slightly "puffy" effect. In a little fiddling you get sounds well ... honest. The clean sounds which convaicants, funky and jazzy, it's pretty honorable. The crunch and saturated on the other hand ... Despite the presence of famous amp models (mesa, marshall etc ...) all this sounds transistors, without heat or high definition. Bluesman and another follower of the light passing your way. Excited by the fingers against the trend 80's should find their happiness.


I use it for a year and a half. I play on US Deluxe Start and I could play with my amp apart: this little toy has served me well and helped out. Entendont us well, the sounds are quite correct and complete for this type of machine. Do not expect to a correction. USB is practice, locigiels too. But this is synthetic, in my opinion, difficult to use in a live context.
