DigiTech Announces New RP Series Modeling Guitar Processors
At the heart of the new RP series is the proprietary AudioDNA2™ DSP, four times as powerful as the previous AudioDNA™ processor. The AudioDNA2 is a proprietary audio ASIC that provides more accuracy in the tone and dynamic response of the RP models than its predecessor.
Each of the new RP processors incorporates a new feature for quick access to 30 preset tone libraries and 30 effects chains. Simply dial in a genre based tone setting and then select from a variety of pre-programmed effect combinations. All three units come standard with a built-in drum machine featuring 60 professionally programmed patterns and a high quality drum kit. A chromatic tuner with drop-tuning options is standard, as is five seconds of delay time. USB connectivity provides 2-in/2-out recording capabilities as well as preset editing using the included X-Edit™ editor librarian software for PC and Mac.
The flagship RP350 features 118 models, including 73 effects models, 27 amplifier/preamplifier and acoustic guitar models with A/B switching, and 18 speaker cabinets. Seventy user presets and 70 factory presets allow ample storage for even a complex stage show. Three footswitches, four buttons, six encoders, and an integral expression pedal provide complete control over essential parameters during performance, while an eight-character LCD gives the player visual feedback on the darkest stage.
The powerful RP250 offers 89 models, with 54 effects models, 21 amp/preamp and acoustic guitar models, and 14 speaker cabinets. Users can store up to 60 user presets and there are 60 factory presets. Real-time control is provided by two footswitches, four buttons, four encoders, and an integral expression pedal. A six-character LCD provides at-a-glance visibility under the most challenging stage-lighting conditions.
Completing the new RP series is the RP150 with 77 models, comprising 48 effects models, 17 amp/preamp and acoustic guitar models, and 12 speaker cabinets. There are 50 user and 50 factory storage locations for presets. Two footswitches, four buttons, four encoders, and a Control In connector for an optional expression pedal let the player take complete control over the tone. A two-character display is easily visible on stage or in the studio.
