DigiTech RP355 Review

This review is from: DigiTech RP355 Modeling Guitar Processor and USB Recording Interface (Electronics)I'd been using an RP350 for over a year before buying an RP355 for the added stomp-switch mode and 20-second looper.
The looper is simple, without undo or a means of controlling volume. Simplicity can be a plus for live performance, though. I did a solo improv performance after only 20 minutes of practice with the RP350. I've had more complex loopers that never got used due to the steep learning curve and higher probability of making mistakes.
The stomp-switch mode is a welcome addition, eliminating the need to sequence multiple patches in order to get different effect combinations. Unlike switching patches, there's no latency in turning an effect on or off.
The tuner is improved, being much less jittery than on the RP350.
The RP355 has nine new amp models and a ring modulator effect not present in the RP350. Some of the presets are different. As on the RP350, there are bound to be a few presets that'll satisfy most players, regardless... Read more

Digitech Rp-355 Review,
This review is from: DigiTech RP355 Modeling Guitar Processor and USB Recording Interface (Electronics)I have had this pedal for a while now.
I purchased it for both the processing and the looping features.
The modeling is good, and has lots of features for trying to mimic certain sounds, but you'd better have a really good ear and be prepared to spend some time tweaking it.
I am finding the looping feature very limited, as it only records 20 seconds (not enough for 16 bars). The only way to store loops is on the computer via USB, and after that, if you want to use them in the pedal, you have to play it back via AUX device and record into the loop. (no internal memory card).
The internal drum patterns are horrible sounding (meaning you also have to use drum loops from somewhere else and use AUX device to input and record into loop).
No UNDO feature. If you record something into a loop and overdub and don't like it, your only choice is to clear it and start over.
The built in tuner is easy to access and works great... Read more

This review is from: DigiTech RP355 Modeling Guitar Processor and USB Recording Interface (Electronics)
This is the first time I've ever owned a guitar effects processor foot peddle. I was not sure what to do with it first.... after owning it for approximately one month, I was able to figure out several different sounds that I liked... I do like the drum. I can only use it on one song at this time. I wish I had gotten something like this earlier on in life... I believe what you mess up, the processor will help cover up.... I have played guitar for around 33 ½ years now.... I never said I was good at it, but I do believe this has improve the sound quality, of my playing, greatly. In my opinion, like Tony the Tiger's, "IT'S GREAT!!!" also want to mention, fast delivery, and I like the fact it was at a good price.... I would recommend this to all that want get out of the rut of playing the ol' same sound....0
