View Full Description
The RP500 has two special modes, Pedalboard and Amp/Cabinet Bypass that customize the operation of the unit. In Pedalboard mode, the RP500 can easily turn on and off 5 separate effects with separate footswitches. When in Amp/Cabinet Bypass mode the internal amplifiers and cabinets can also be defeated with just the touch of a single button allowing the RP500 to keep the tonal characteristics of your external amplifiers and rig. When in both Pedalboard mode and Amp/Cabinet Bypass mode, the RP500 is a set of stompboxes and effects which can be altered from program to program, like an Effect Switching System.
Continuing the stage enhancements, the RP500 is made from durable die-cast chassis and is augmented by roadworthy metal switches.
The RP500 also includes Cubase LE4 Music Production Software that enhances its already superb capabilities; Via the RP500 s USB connection, guitars can be recorded directly to PC or Mac, then captured and edited using Cubase LE4 s 48-track DAW. As an added bonus, Cubase LE4 features VST soft-synth instruments, such as drums, for additional creative power. This combination makes it easy to arrange, record and produce music in one simple package.
