Product Description

The DigiTech RP500 delivers easy control over your tone on stage!
The DigiTech 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.

Free Version 2.0 Upgrade is Now Available for Download at digitech.com!!
The Version 2.0 upgrade adds a 20-second looper to your RP500 so you can now
lay down a track, loop it, add another track with a different preset to help when
creating songs or just build a song live on stage!

Incredible versatility
The RP500 is a powerful multi-effect processor designed specifically for the performing guitarist. Designed for the rigors demanded on stage, the RP500 is built like a tank with a cast metal chassis, 9 heavy-duty metal switches, and metal expression pedal. Stage control is easy with big LED indicators that display program or pedal status, large 10- character LED display. XLR and 1/4-inch outputs with ground lift give you the ability to run to your amp and directly into to a mixer.

For players who only want effects, the RP500’s exclusive Amp/Cabinet Bypass and Pedalboard buttons let you defeat amp and cabinet effects in all presets and let you turn on and off effects just like individual stompboxes. The built-in expression pedal gives you real-time control over effects and parameters such as volume, wah, chorus speed, delay level and much more.

For the home studio players, the RP500 also features USB audio streaming for computer recording. Steinberg Cubase LE4 music production software is also included. X-Edit Editor/Librarian software for both Mac and PC lets you easily program and archive all your sounds via its intuitive user interface.
