Nocturnum's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Zoom RFX-1000
Digital multi effect processor rack with three banks of 11 effects.

UTILIZATION

Amazingly simple, user manual, it was by what he had a surplus of paper to year;)

SOUND QUALITY

There must be frank, if you buy it for the chorus type effects, guitar, delay ... it's big shit like the pedals 505!
But if you buy it for the reverb and then the vocoder is a big slap you take.
I had a Lexicon MPX 100 and although I went back to the zoom so I was surprised by trying it in a store.
So for me, 10/10 for the reverb and vocoder, which are to die. But 0 for other effects.

OVERALL OPINION

To be used as a supplement to a voice (after a preamp) or a synth, but certainly not as guitar multi effect

Zoom RFX-1000
The effects are nice but very raw.

It includes:
-A bank of classic reverb (room vacal, flat, room, hall, received, etc ...)
A bank-effect (flanger, chorus, pitch, delay, comp-limiters and torque of these effects)
And the 3rd-bank (micro simulator, a vocal mix and a mix boost, a leslie simulator cabin style, a lo-fi, a ring modulator, etc. ... and a really great vocoder).

The effects are of good quality for the price, sometimes not very subtle but alive! the connector jack is standard, but 6.35 is a little cheap (not screwed on the case but on the electronic card and in my opinion manipulation "I connect, I disconnect, it should not be the ideal!) we find Bypass input. the whole is 19 "rack 1U.
The microphone jack on the front jack is in the format 6.35 emploit is restricted so the microphones without external power supply or batteries to use the vocoder.

UTILIZATION

The effects can not be edited via a PC editor, but the selections are TElement quick and convenient thanks to the knobs on the front switch that in the blink of an eye on the desired effect. the manual is clear but lacks a little example, it is in French, however, and 1 / 2 hour, it is known to use the device ... easy!

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are sometimes a little "destroy" or lacking a bit of wisdom or realism, but it is not the purpose of this unit. I used to use as a multi-purpose main, now my setup has been relegated to the computer, I plugged in behind my AKAI sampler (on a separate channel to reprocess the sounds from the sampler so fast enough. everything is redirected into the pc.

I like this unit:

- The vocoder great, to fall a quality, easy to use (provided you have a synthesizer connected to the input of a RFX 1000 and a microphone to plug in front)
- Quick access to various banks and effects SETTINGS
- Price

I do not like:

- The connections a little cheap
- The transformer with a small cable that wraps all the time but that is long enough ... ok then is forgiven!
- The fact that we can not safeguard its presets and then typing everything by hand!

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?

I use it for 2 years

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

ALESIS MIDIVERB yes, viscount .. I know the model?? lexicons and mid-range (tested in a studio ... I have not chosen the zoom from the lexi Ok ... because I have a C ocaz one to zoom!

- How would you rate the quality / price?

very correct

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes, I think the 2000 or so with our ability to safeguard its presets.
