This is the centerpiece of your effects pedal system. Featuring 4 Effects Loops with Hard Wire Relay bypass, a separate Tuner Output as well as an Input Buffer, your days of pedal mess and cable confusion are over. No more signal chain losses due to pedals without true bypass - like most Asian-made pedals with FET switching. All of the footswitches are illuminated and easy to see even on dark stages. Two Rivera RM-1 Routmeister controllers can be linked together to provide up to 8 effects loops. This can also be configured to allow one RM-1 Routmeister to be used in the Effects Loop of your amp, and one to be used before your amp.

The Rivera RM-1 is easy to program. It has a MIDI out to send program change information to your other MIDI effects processors in your signal chain. Powering your 9V Pedals has never been easier as 4 DC jacks are provided along with the necessary cables to provide up to 160 MaDC of clean 9V power.

Switching your Rivera or other brand of amplifier can easily be handled by the RM-1. Clear and easy to read numeric LED indicators for banks and selections.

There are two TRS jacks provided that can switch up to four amplifier-switching functions independently. The switching itself can be programmed along with the effects loops and external MIDI commands to control your entire system with simplified footswitch commands.

A Volume Control is provided for level matching and can be programmed to a particular loop enabling perfect signal balancing between different kinds of pedals.

Optional is the innovative WP-1Wah-Pad that can be programmed to turn on your Wah with just the pressure of your foot, and when you lift off, the Wah is bypassed. This can also be used with a Volume Pedal or any foot activated effects device that you desire to be bypassed when not using.

A rugged and regulated external power supply with a 3.5M cable comes standard with the Rivera RM-1 Routmeister. Weighing only about 3 pounds, the RM-1 will save you countless hours of setup and frustration each time you play, as well as making you sound as good as a straight line into your amp.

Very Versatile Unit

By Rob-0Nl-K

from Montana

See all my reviews

I've owned the RM1 for about 2 years, this thing does almost everything, standard amp switching, midi controller, 4 loops for additional effect pedals you can switch in and out, I won't go on about it you can read on the site everything it does. It's a solid built unit, I have had no issues with it, It's a little steep in price I managed to get one at around $250 somewhere else but I'd probably pay the price that MF is asking, it's worth it. The one reason I did not give this unit a 5 across the board... The manual BLOWS!!! at least the one that came with unit that I have. Don't know if they've revised it yet or not but it's like it was originally written in Russian then translated into English by someone from Indonesia. I think these units were originally designed and manufactured by a company over in the European part of the world and Rivera bought them out and slapped their label on them. Fairly easy to figure out & program, even with the cruddy manual. All in all a great piece of gear if you can afford it!
