DigiTech RP500 Integrated Effect Switching System


Sold out.

 Make the complex simple. Pros use large effect switching systems to connect and make it simple to control large assortments of stompboxes, effects and amps. They need control over effect’s on/off state as well as the ability to completely change the effects in their “pedalboard” at the touch of a single button.

Stompbox feel. Pros like stompbox type metal switches due to their feel when pressed and simplicity of operation. On/Off, or program number is all they have time to worry about in a performance.

The Simplicity of a Stompbox. The Control of an Effect Switching System. The RP500 takes the complexity of an effect switching system and combines it with the simplicity of stompboxes. Professional tones are at your disposal, all easy controlled. Concentrate on performing.

Every guitar player is different from their core tone, how they achieve it, and how they control it on stage. Whether you get your tone from your amp and just need a few effects or get your tone from a single box the RP500 has the sounds and control over them that you need. Unlike multi-effects that take over your tone and limit your control, the RP500 is an effect switching system over internal stompboxes, effects, and amps. Control your tones in Preset or Pedalboard mode. The Preset mode allows you to switch between saved presets and can drastically differ from one to another. The Pedalboard mode allows you to turn on an off individual effects and stompboxes with ease within a preset.

To top it off, the unique Amp/Cabinet Bypass mode defeats internal amplifiers and cabinets in the RP500 leaving you with just stompboxes and effects. Your RP500 is now the perfect collection of stompboxes and effects with unprecedented control to use with your distorted or clean amplifier. Augment and spice up your sound any way you’d like and retain the control you need with the RP500.
