    Hey Ya'll!

    I recently picked up a Digitech RP1000, and am, so far, loving it. But... Holy crap this thing does a lot, and I'm still just kinda learning my way through it. And... Sadly there isn't much online as far as any real feedback or user tips, so that is why I am here.

    Currently I am running it using the 4-wire method through my Wilder Modified Marshall TSL100 into a 2x12 PRS cab w/ Celestion Vintage 30's.

    At any rate... This thing does a crap load of stuff and I know it's gonna take a while for me to totally wrap my head around it, so any input ya'll might have would be greatly appreciated, and I'll share what I know, learn, and observe about the unit, it's features, uses, strengths and weakness. That being said... I hope to hear from ya'll soon!

    This week I'm gonna have a go at the Cubase software. Get it installed, play around w/ it a bit, get the lay of the land... If you guys have any input on potential pitfalls and/or tricks... Let me know. Thanks!

    Carrying over from the other thread, I don't think you can do the 4CM with the RP500 as it doesn't have a send and return for the effects loop. Only the RP1000 has it.

    I was thinking of getting an RP1000 myself but am confused if I should go for that or the TC Nova Delay, Ibanez Airplane Flanger and a simple wah pedal. Bang for buck or just what I want/need for more...

    Yeah it looks the RP500 has different hookups...

    [​IMG]

    For my money... I elected to go w/ bigger bang for the buck. This way if I decide that I want a very specialized pedal of some sort later I can always add it to my rig later, but for the the foreseeable future I've got everything I need and then some.

    Well... I'm not the only one... ;)

    There's dodgethis, and now you... ;)

    That RP1 looks a lot like a floor version of the GSP12 Legend rackmount unit that I had years ago. Cool.
    But yeah, I'm pretty much it for the most part. My main thought in starting this thread was put together a "one stop shop" for all things RP1000. I know there's some RP user's out there and I'd like them to contribute, but either way this thread'll have what I've learned is setting up my RP1000, and links to useful sites and demos as well. With time it's have plenty of good info for anyone who cares to have a look. Know what ah mean Vern? :wave:

    Hi Andy. My responses will be in orange below.


    Having a backup that can run right into the PA is a very handy thing. Of the amps you listed the best sounding one, in my opinion, is the JVM (the JVM line is, I think, the successor to the JCM line). Now between the Peavey 6505+ and the Bugera... I like the Bugera. It's a copy cat of the Peavey XXX. The build quality is not as good, but the tone circuit is great. It's just plain a great sounding amp, and costs a fraction of anything else w/ that kinda tone and # of channels.

    Anyhoo... There's my two cents. I hope it helps bro.

    Re: Digitech RP1000 & Cubase LE4

    Well... I installed Cubase LE4, and jumped through the 79 flaming hoops of fire that Steinberg wants you to jump through to install, activate, and license the bloody program. Now all I need to do is learn how to use it. I mean, for cryin' out loud, the operation manual alone is over 260 pages!!! They also have a smaller "getting started" booklet. Can you guess how many pages that is? 59 pages. For bloody "getting started" manual! I may be wrong, but I think I may have a slight learning curve when it comes to Cubase LE4.

    :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Re: Current Setup

    I have been havin' fun lately... I re-did my rig, and now I've got my guitar running into my Digitech Hardwire Delay, and from there one output goes directly into the TSL ('cause that tone is killer and I want it to be the focus of my sound), and the other output is going into the RP1000 which is connected using the 4-wire method into the Bugera. Stereo rig! Yeah baby! So I keep the Bugera fairly wet w/ effects, and use it to supplement my main Wilder Modded, Martimus Maximus Tone Packed, Marshall sound. This setup is absolutely massive sounding, and when I kick in that Hardwire delay... I have got multiple delays just kickin' arse. Oh, so tasty!

    Cubase... Yeah... Not diggin' it so far. Audacity is soooooo much simpler to operate.
