400% more horsepower. No wonder the DigiTech RP150 sounds so good. You're looking atthe world's most advanced audio processor, the "engine" that gives this generation of RP models so much more raw impact and subtle detail. Many other manufacturers use general-purpose, off-the-shelf chips. But creating the best guitar tone requires a 100% specialized, optimized processor. Being total audio processing fanatics, "Chip Wizard" engineers set out to create a super-processor specifically designed to power a whole new generation of effects and models. The design team worked for over two years, literally redefining audio signal processing at the chip level. Then DigiTech's "Tone Guru" engineers — fresh from Production Modeling triumphs like the Jimi Hendrix Experience Artist Series pedal — set to work taking advantage of all the raw processing power. When you hear what AudioDNA2 does for the tone of the RP150 guitar effects pedal, you'll agree it was all worth it.

This is a great product for any level electric guitar player. Yeah having experience with effects may give you an edge with this pedal, but who cares. If you take the time to read through the booklet that comes with it you'll know what each effect is designed to do. It's great that each effect is tweakable. I highly recommend downloading the X-Edit software from the digitech website. It gives you more parameters that you can control and having the computer interface is alot easier than trying to mess with the knobs on the pedal itself. The factory presets are good minus the detune and octave patches. Everything is tweakable though so maybe you could get them to sound descent. I love the ability to create effects. I've made 5 or 6 new patches which have worked out very well for me. I play on 2 different worship teams in my church and this pedal has been very effective. I don't have to lug arount my 60 pound crate chorus amp anymore. The pedal is ultra quite. It has a built in noise gate which is excellent. The tuner is pretty good and a very nice feature. Having the amp/mixer button is a plus. I run it direct into the board and it sounds great. I read one review on here that bashed the 150. It said all the effects sound the same. This is not the case. If you take the time to try out each effect you'll be able to hear the differences. For example the synth swell and the chimey patches, if you down strum one time on both effects they sound very similar. The synth swell though has a soulful kind of organ/strings vibe to it. You can't strum away at it. It's designed to let each chord ring out. The chimey effect is designed for picking out or strumming. For single note leads it acts as a trem effect. The point is by listening closely you can pick out the differences. Maybe 2 distortions sound similar, the difference may be that theres a delay on one and not on the other, or chorus, or reverb ect. You can scroll through effects pretty quickly. Hands down it is the best multi-effects pedal for the money. The only draw back for me is that the chimey-ness of my Tele doesn't shine through, but I still have my amp when I want to experience that again. One last word of advice, it helps to tweak the volume levels of your effects, some can be much louder than others which can no doubt drive sound engineers insane. A good volume pedal is always an option as well.

I bought this purely based on price, hoping that it would just provide a few more options to play with when I record. Being that I have owned other recent Digitech units that I've been fairly happy with (GNX1, RP200, RP300) I was expecting some good things from this one too. But I've had it for several weeks now and in all honesty, I am pretty let down by it overall.I was expecting a decent leap up from the previous RP models (100/200/300), but in fact many of the features/tones have been down right disappointing. The distortions/amps/cabinets are all harsh & slightly weak sounding to me...I think I have a decent sound going & then I'll A/B it against my old J-Station or POD 2.0 & the RP150just sounds very weak & cheesy, even with twice the tweaking and EQing time I would've with either of those older units.I honestly prefer the older RP200 in many ways...I won't get too over the top with naming them all...But to my ears, the new RP units just do not seem like much of an improvment over their predecessors. I personally feel like my $ would've been better spent buying a backup for my J-Station.Also...the lack of an On/Off switch is just flatout ridiculous..even on a product in this price range. I didn't rate it extremely low in any one category, since for the price it does have a lot of features that people are looking for. I just don't feel that it does any one of them all that well.

This has got to be THE coolest thing I have ever owned. It has like 20 different amps built into it so why spend a whole bunch of money on an amp when you have a bunch of them in an effects pedal?! It also has a MEAN distortion and once again, you have several different pedals to choose from along with every other effect. I was especially pleased with the chorus effect and it pretty much harmonizes the guitar so when you play a note it sounds like a chord.
I bought this while working in Iraq. Great sounds out of this little box. I play this through a Line 6 Spider III amp. All the effects on the RP-150 sorta negated the use of effects builtin to the amp. Mixing amp effects and RP-150 effects together gets pretty crazy.The ONLY issue I have is that the USB connection from the RP-150 to my computer forces MP3 playback from the computer to skip my desktop speakers and play through my amp. I have yet to find a way to split this. I would prefer to control the effects with the X-Edit software and have the guitar go to my amp but play MP3's to the speakers connected to the computer. One solid way to circumvent this is to use 2 computers, one for X-Edit software control and the other for MP3 playback... but theres gota be a way to get it to work with 1 PC. If any know a fix for this, please post =)
I've had this for about a year and I currently use it through the effects loop of my Marshall DSL50 head. I use it mainly for the delay, chorus, flange, reverb, noise suppressor and even a little EQ. When I'm not using it through my amp I use it to record direct into Protools. Ok so as far as the effects I use through my effects loop, I think it's a very versatile unit. The delays are great and are very tweakable. I have owned several expensive delay pedals and this does it just as well. I think the Chorus sounds are great. I use the flange and phaser a little for a few things like when I play Van Halen. They are decent. The reverbs are very usable as long as you learn how to tweak them. I use the noise gate mainly for my strat to help get rid of some of that Strat 60 cycle hum noise and it doesn't destroy my tone. I also use the EQ section and this helps to balance the bass, mids and highs with certain effects. When I use the RP150 to record direct into Protools I find many of the pre-sets very useful. I often create my own sounds based off the Marshall JCM800 and Plexi models which I think sound better than the Line6 POD. I also like the Metal Zone model on the RP150. I think it sounds very close to the real thing when you spend the time to dial in the correct parameters. This also sounds great going into the front of the amp. I am a tone nut and have played through and owned many different amps. Modulation effects tend to sound better going through an amps effects loop where as distortion pedals are designed to go in front and this is why I stress that I use the delay, chorus etc through the effects loop. I think the key to using the effects on this unit are tweaking the levels on each effect until you find a sound that works for you. Finally, although it's not a selling point for me, the drum backing tracks on the unit are decent and can be used for practice or for timing when you are laying down ideas when you record.
not. this thing blows. the fx are all the same! the only ones that are diffrent are the flanging type fx.
I've had this over a year now. I use it with a Fender Strat and it sounds great. It has lots of great distortions and amps. The effects are amazing. It's great for all styles of music. It sounds great. I'm not sure if it's the pedal or the guitar. Speaking of guitars, BUY A FENDER GUITAR, THEIR GREAT!!!...... great pedal
This is a great peddle for the price. It comes with tons of different effects, allthough I must say that more than half of them you may never use. It has a built in drum machine that is great for practicing with. This thing just sounds great in my opinion. I would definately recommend this for any type of guitar player, and for anyone who has a small wallet.
I've had multi-effect devices before, but this one blows them all away in every category. It's hard to argue with a metal-cased device for durability, the sound quality is great and the possibilities are seemingly endless. Not only is it great on its own through your amp or PA, but its USB connectivity is just about idiot-proof. Audacity recording software recognizes it immediately, and I was up and recording with just about no learning curve. I like that!The X-Edit software increases the utility, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how much support the Digitech website provides though its user forums. The website also provides video training, access to user patches (nearly 200 so far), user and factory sound clips--just about anything you could want.Digitech has a winner in this one!
I bought this pedal to replace an old processor I had that bit the dust. It sounds great--especially the distortion and amp modeling. I can get great sounds without cranking the gain on my amp!One of my favorite features is the ability to connect it to the computer, via usb, and change the settings visually (like using a pedal board) and being able to hear the results real time. The only feature I wish the pedal had is midi capability to connect a midi controller for the presets. The pedals only enable you to change settings sequentially. Not a huge issue, but it does mean planning your presets out carefully for a song set. The construction seems very sturdy. It is metal rather than cheap plastic. Nice.Overall, I am very surprised by the quality and the sound of this pedal, particularly for the price.
I used to have a digitech rack mounted processor by in the early 90's and loved it. I was looking for another rack model, but couldn't afford the one I wanted. I was sceptical about a floor effect, as I mainly do home studio recording. Man, was I surprised by the sound of the factories, not to mention the ability to manufactur your own sound with the first 50 perameters. If you're just beginning, or been jammin a long time this thing is a great value and alot of bang for your buck!
My friend has the RP250, with a volume/wah pedal and more models, but what do you need all that for? That's why I bought the RP150. It's perfect for me because I won't have to buy more effects pedals for the rest of my life, and I won't need another amp for another 10, 15, or even 20 years. You don't NEED the 250, although it has more stuff, but the 150 is perfect for a musician like me, who plays lead guitar in a band and doesn't need to use a wah. Everything you NEED is in this pedal. If you're looking for our certain tone, don't buy a tone of effects pedals, get this (or any RP), and you'll find your tone. All that's in my rig is a Gibson Flying V Faded (for electric stuff) an Epiphone PR5-E (for acoustic stuff), and that gets run through my RP150 and my Fender Blues Junior. If I found my tone with the RP, you can too.
