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. The RP1000 is built like a tank from a cast metal chassis to the 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™ 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.

Second , the presets were terrible ( except some of the cleans and acoustics ) this seems par for the course on many units like this. Seems kinda silly being that people will try them out in music stores. Youd think they would write some decent demo patches .
The good ? If you do some tweaking you can get some great 5150 , Messa boggie Dual rec , and marshall master volume tones on your own patches. If you do alot of tweaking you can get those specific amp mods sounding hot .
I could go on but its not that great . It is built like a tank , would make a good mono pedal board but it has too many drawbacks/flaws for me.
A word to the wise - i myself am looking for top notch tone in a box but its the old " you get what you par for " . $300 will get you a $300 sound . $1000 will get you a $1000 dollar sound. You cant really get around that.
My next purchase will be a major upgrade.
So if you are looking for all these things this unit beats anything else out there. Now if you are looking for something that would sound exactly like a tube amp with a cab.. then save your cash and wait to fork it when you get to up to $2,000. Now this won't sound like the real thing in every way but it is really close yet it won't fool the discerning ear.
Now the pedal effects are much closer to having a real one, the wah although not stellar can really get the job done, I find the chorus' to be quite good and the reverbs just like the wah would get the job done.. The spring reverb is quite weak but not totally useless if you spend some time playing with the knob. Tap delay is quite good, whereas the whammy is a bit too fake for my taste placing it as the weakest section of the whole unit in my opinion. Generally the factory presets are just a guideline of the possibilities of this device, MEANING; TAKE YOUR TIME playing with the knobs and you will get the sound you are looking for. The best thing I can say about this machine is that it is extremely versatile!!! If your thing is Top 40 type of music a device like this would work like a charm.. it really covers a lot of ground musically. Another point to consider is that this model would be more geared towards the musician that plays GIGS. If you do not gig around and just want this for recording or hobby get the less expensive models like the Rp 355 which would do the job..
So, a new pedal ought to be a joy. This was not.
I did not like any of the presets including the rectifier that I really liked on the old model. They were all really tinny or way ovedriven. I fiddled with all the knobs to try to tune in the sound. The FX Level and Master Level have dead spots where you move the dial 20 points and you can't hear any change at all... Several times the expression pedal was active, unknown to me and that overrides the level settings. I really don't want to have to use the pedal for anything other than the wah and while you can toe stab it off, it seems to turn on spontaneously as you switch through the presets.
I did an A/B comparison, using identical amp/cab settings between the RP1000 and my old RP250, and they sound the same, quality-wise, to my ears. However, the versatility of the RP1000 has made me a very happy camper. I finally feel like I've got a pro pedalboard and amp rig at my disposal, and .....it fits in a little roll-away suitcase. The expression pedal, as well as the top row of push-button switches, are all programmable to control whichever parameters you'd like. It's vey intuitive (especially if you've worked with a Digitech pedal before). The addition of a "stomp box loop" is a huge improvement, for my purposes. Finally I can integrate my great pedals into an amp simulator, just like I would with a physical amp.
I'm still learning and experimenting with all the sounds, but the flexibility and sound quality of this unit is terrific.
