Read the manual before buying this thing! I wish I'd know how little flexibility there is with the order of effects in a preset. I also wish I'd know that you're limited to just ONE modulation type effect in a preset. What that translates into is that you always have:
- modeling (pickup and/or amplifier)
- Noise Gate
and you can add ONE other effect. This is more limiting than you'd think. Lots of songs use multiple effects, albeit maybe not at the same time. Take "Unchained" by Van Halen. Eddie uses a flanger, a phaser, and an octaver at different points in the song. The RP355 has all of these effects, but you can only setup one per preset.
In practice, this means a complicated dance of switching between STOMP mode and PRESET mode to change between setups, and then turn the chosen effect on and off. Add to this that the RP355 has big wide plastic pedals. It's really, really hard to hit just one of them, especially the one in the middle, while playing. It's really not practical, so if you need more than one of these effects you'll still be looking at more pedals.
Speaking of STOMP mode, you're stuck with the pedal assignments. The 1st pedal is distortion, the 2nd your selected ONE effect, and the 3rd is delay. Of course, the one you're most likely to want to use mid-song is the middle pedal - hardest of all to hit.
The WAH pedal is touchy. It could really use a way to set the tension on it. I end up mashing it way past where I meant to most of the time.
The Xedit software is just OK, but it's free as are firmware upgrades. That's a pretty good deal. There's also an ASIO driver for this pedal, so integrating it with good DAW software is easy on Windows.
Overall while I really like my 355 if I were buying today I'd go for the RP360xp. It has all the same limitations, but it does support an expansion switch board, and it has much better switches.
I still gave it 4 stars. It's probably only 3 if bought new today given the competing models (from Digitech). But had I rated it two years ago I'd have given it a 5 - so I split the difference.
Even after 2 yrs of hard use, it remains a solidly working, reliable tool in my playing arsenal.
Love the ability to hand-craft sounds, timing, effects, and make them a 'standard' part of the unit, customized to my needs.
Superb support from the online support team, and rock solid performance, even after tossing it around in the gig bag, back of the car trunk, in the rehearsal hall.....
This gem, coupled to my JamMan Looper, are all I need.
