Product Description

Dramatically expand your guitar's tonal capabilities with the DigiTech RP1000, which features over 160 effects, 200 presets, 40 tone and effects libraries, a 20 second looper, and much more.

Endless Possibilities

The RP1000 offers a seemingly endless variety of distortions, overdrives, fuzzes, choruses, and delays, so players can dial in exactly the tone needed for any song, genre or venue. In addition, it features amp and cabinet models, a 20-second phrase looper, phasers, flangers, compressors, reverbs, synths, a tune and even the Whammy, an effect made famous by DigiTech. The RP1000 even has a built-in expression pedal for control of its whammy, wah, volume, and countless other effect parameters for otherwise unobtainable sounds.

Phrase Looper

The built-in Phrase Looper allows players to create on-the-fly performance loops for practicing, composing, and performing. With 20 seconds of record time and controls for Stop, Play, and Overdub, the RP1000 can layer different guitar parts and tones seamlessly for unique effects or one-man/woman-band performances.

Stage Ready, Stage Sturdy

The RP1000 is built to withstand the hard-hitting world of the rock n' roll stage. From its cast metal chassis to its 14 heavy-duty switches, to the large 10 character LED display, it's optimized for performers who play in dimly lit clubs with rowdy crowds and loud amps. Because it requires zero set up time, the DigiTech RP1000 shortens player's fussing-around-on-the-stage time to allow for more, preparing-to-play-the-actual-music time. And, with an onboard headphone output, it's the perfect educational and practice tool.

Recording Made Easy

The DigiTech RP1000 is invaluable for its recording capabilities. Courtesy of its onboard USB port, the unit doubles as a two input, two output recording interface, thoughtfully bundled with a version of Cubase LE. With this capability, the DigiTech RP1000 becomes a crucial recording tool for any guitarist or songwriter who needs a quick and easy idea-archival tool.

Product Description

Your sound is king. The control of your sound is imperative. The RP1000 gives you added control to express yourself the way you want. No longer will the lack of control stand in the way of your expression.

Your rig.

The RP1000 integrates into your amp and with your stompboxes, not the other way around. Featuring exclusive Stompbox and Amp loops, the RP1000 doesn't get in the way of your tone and switches external stompboxes in and out of the signal path like large pro rigs. No longer will you have to do the pedal tap dance, just select your preset and your tone is engaged, just the way you like it.

Your Amp.

In conjunction with the external Amp Loop, the RP1000 also features an Amp/Cabinet bypass switch that allows you to turn off the RP1000's internal amplifiers and cabinets so your amp's tone stands alone.

Simplicity of a Stompbox.

Popular on the RP500, the RP1000 also features the Pedalboard option that turns footswitches 6 through 10 into stompbox style effect on/off controls.

100 Different Pedalboards.

When the Amp/Cabinet Bypass is used in conjunction with the Pedalboard mode, the RP1000 turns into 100 different pedalboards. You get instant access to both preset changes and stompbox on/off control, truly the best of both worlds.

Phrase Looper.

The RP1000's built-in Phrase Looper lets you create on the fly performance loops for practicing, composing, and performing. With 20 seconds of record time and controls for Stop, Play, and Overdub, you can layer different guitar parts and tones seamlessly into cool song ideas or one-man jams.

Your Gear, Your Tone.

The RP1000 is designed to be used with external amps & stompboxes. The combination of the RP1000's Stompbox Loop, Amp Loop and Amp/Cabinet Bypass feature allows the RP1000 to integrate into your rig and not the other way around.

Integrated Effects Switching System.

Like large, professional switching systems that cost thousands of dollars, the RP1000 switches external gear with ease and eliminates the pedal "tap dance" so you can concentrate on playing and performing.

The RP1000 is built like a tank, with a cast metal chassis and 14 heavy-duty switches. A large 10 character LED display makes for easy stage use topped by an built-in expression pedal to control wahs, volume, Whammy(TM) and other parameters.

No matter how you get your tone, the RP1000 works with your gear and gives you the control you need when playing live.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (48 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Best Multi FX pedal out there!"
Sound: Tried 'em all-Line 6, Vox and Boss. This one beats them all hands down. I use it in pedalboard mode along with my amp's clean tone in the amp loop. The overdrives and distortion pedal models are very good and touch responsive. Distortion cleans up when you back off on the guitar's volume and sustain is there in spades if you have a good guitar. The unit is very quiet. I have only fooled around with the amp/cab models thru the headphones. Some are very good. I like the JCM900 mod the best. Dual Rectifer is pretty good too tho a little muddy. Live, I use several different preset overdrive and distortion pedal models for everything from SRV to AIC. The choruses are rich and syrupy. I like the Clone setting best. Delays and reverbs are also very high quality and useful. I sound better than I ever have and this unit has taken me out of a rut and makes me want to play all the time now. Feature: You can blow an entire day before you realize it experimenting with this unit. Distortions start with Tube Screamer and go to Death Metal and cover everything in between. There are so many modulation FX and other FX like the talk box sims. There is every effect I know of or will ever use in this unit. It has several different configurations for hooking up to a sound source. The amp loop feature will place your amp's pre amp in between your distortions and modulation/delay FX and negate the amp/cab sims. It has stereo XLR's out to the main mix so you don't have to mike your amp. It sends the same signal that's going to your amp's speaker to the PA and my soundman loves it. Silent tuning is accessible by pressing and holding down preset you are on. 20 second looper is nice to create short passages to practice soloing over, although I find it a little clumsy to use live. I wish the power adapter had a longer cable but that's not that big a deal. This unit has everything I will ever need without having to haul and dance around a stage full of pedals and cables. Ease of Use: When I 1st got it I was impatient and just plugged in some headphones and started cycling thru the presets and found some cool sounds. Being eager to putz with it, I read the manual, hooked up to my amp, and dove in. This unit is way easier to program than Boss units. The display and edit controls are very user friendly and easier to read than Line 6. The displays and switch LED's are very bright and easy to see on a dark stage. The knobs allow you to adjust FX blend and volume on the fly. Editing is easy to do on the fly also if you need to make a quick adjustment, once you have familiarized yourself with how it works. It doesn't require a technical degree to use it and one should have no problem finding a good sound. You just have to be patient and tweak it. I found this process to be fun and entertaining and once I got dialed in, I was off to the races. Having all those editable presets and the convienance of being able to turn on/off FX within each preset has made my stage life better and easier. Quality: This unit is built like a tank. My only concern with this unit is the recessed cavity for the FX edit matrix display. If something was spilled on it, it would pool up here and I'm sure it would destroy it, so keep the drink toting fans off the stage! The knobs are plastic and kinda flimsy but are recessed into the FX matrix. Expression pedal seems to have a sturdier feel than other brand units I tried. Value: It's pricey but it's 1000's cheaper than buying all those pedals separately, making it a 10 for me. Manufacturer Support: I haven't needed it yet. I like the payment plan option tho and I got my stuff fast. The Wow Factor: It looks cool on the stage. The display is bright and it looks very technical. Fans come up and check it out and compliment me on my tone. If it got lost, stolen or destroyed I'd replace it. I insure all my gear tho. Overall: This is my 1st multi FX processor and hopefully my last. The only things I would change are: Having 2 tones/channels to switch back and forth between on any given preset would be nice. Making the looper a little more user friendly and accessible for live performance WITHOUT having to buy an external footcontroller would be nice. I gave it a 9 on features because of that. Other than that I can't complain about anything with this unit

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "It will inspire you to play"
Sound: The sound quality is very good. I have found that you need to tweak it to your on taste and sound.I am playing through a Fender Prosonic tube amp with 2x10 and it sounds great.I find you can get any sound for any style of music. There is some patches that sound better than others. I have used it in both recording and live situations and find they both sound very good. I like the amp modeling a lot. Try using different cabs with different amps . Feature: I really like the amp modeling. Very real sounds and I like being able to use different cabs with different amp models. Using the effects alone is another great feature. Very easy to create your on patches. The expression pedal is difficult to use the wah without turning it off. I haven"t contacted digitech about this yet. Not sure if you can adjust the sensitivity of the on/off switch. Ease of Use: I find it very easy to use and to program user presets. I read the manual online at didgtech before buying and was pretty familar with the pedal . Quality: The product is made like a tank. I have only had it for about a month now . I think it can take the road abuse and will still be working for years to come. Value: In comparison to other products I think you get your moneys worth. Very happy. Manufacturer Support: I haven't needed to contact support yet. Dont know. The Wow Factor: The design and looks draw you to the pedal. Overall: I see myself using this processor for many years. I think for the money its the best on the market. I chose this product after reading lots of reviews and the most important thing that made me purchase this product was the videos on youtube and other sites with live demos. That helped more than anything. The amp modeling is my favorite and least favorite is the wah pedal.
