Easily control your tone on stage!

The RP500 guitar multi-effect processor gives you the ability to control program changes, complete signal chains and allows you to turn all amplifier and cabinet sounds off in the exclusive Pedalboard mode. When in Pedalboard mode the RP500 acts like 5 separate stompboxes and effects. Save each combo in a preset for a uniquely switchable pedal setup not found anywhere else but pro rigs.

The RP500’s stage control allows you to quickly and easily change your tone mid-song and eliminates the “tap dance” of individual effects while retaining the ability to individual switch on/off the effects.

The RP500 is built like a tank from a cast metal chassis to the 9 vacuum-style 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. Your sound is king, the control of your sound is imperative. The RP500 gives you the control to express yourself the way you want – No longer will the lack of control stand in the way of your expression.

    Comments about DigiTech RP500 Guitar Multi-Effects Processor:

    I was excited to use this and hoped to run it through the PA so I wouldn't have to lug my amp to gigs. Spent three hours customizing and saving my presets, only to have the board randomly revert to a factory reset in the middle of my first practice with it.

    Also found it difficult to get the volume levels between presets to be consistent. I believe there is a way to set the expression pedal to be a volume pedal, but doing so means you lose the wah.

    Getting it replaced tomorrow and need to bring an amp to my gig this weekend anyway. Instead of having less equipment, I'll have more.

    All this being said, it's frustrating because I was excited by the versatility of the sounds and the ease of customizing the presets. I figured out how to adjust the volume for each, just not a way to do it while playing (other than using the volume pedal).

    All Digitech mutiprocessors--RP and GNX units-- the Whammy, and the JamMan, have a one year warranty from the manufacturer. All X-Series pedals and analog distortions(Bad Monkey, etc.)have a one year warranty, but if the new owner registers online at digitech.com, the warranty goes to 5 years on the X-Series and analog distortions only.
