      Digidesign Eleven Rack Guitar Multi Effects Processor (621068)

Revolutionary guitar recording and effects processing in a tight and powerful package.

Digidesign's Eleven Rack is a revolutionary guitar recording system designed to solve the challenges guitarists face in the studio. Eleven Rack uses a unique tone cloning design and one-of-a-kind, custom-designed True-Z input to re-create the experience of playing through a mic'd amp. By combining studio-standard Pro Tools software with a DSP-accelerated high-resolution interface, Eleven Rack puts professional recording into the hands of every guitar player. Whether you're tracking in the studio or playing on stage, this rackmountable multi-effects processor delivers fresh, mind-blowing, hyper-realistic guitar amp and effects tones that will inspire your best performances.

Digidesign Eleven Rack In The Studio
Eleven Rack combines studio-standard Pro Tools software with a high-resolution, dual DSP-powered audio interface, so you'll never have to worry about latency when recording, thanks to its built-in amp/effects tones, nor will your computer have to carry the processing burden. Additionally, Eleven Rack takes re-amping to the next level by recording both dry and processed guitar signals simultaneously, allowing you to re-amplify later without patching a single cable. Digidesign even found a way to embed the Eleven Rack amp and effects settings into the audio tracks you record, enabling you to automatically recall those settings from your audio files on any Pro Tools system with the Eleven Rack.

Digidesign Eleven Rack On Stage
Eleven Rack also rocks onstage as a standalone amp tone and effects signal processor. Digidesign pulled out all the stops to make sure it sounds and feels just like playing through the real deal. The guitar effects processor comes with a classic collection of guitar effects, from must-have stompboxes to world-class rackmount studio processors. Eleven Rack has all the I/O flexibility you need to integrate it into your existing rig, and easily incorporate the tones you've recorded with into your live setup—closing the gap between studio and stage. Eleven Rack rackmount processor also offers incredibly powerful control options using affordable MIDI controllers and expression pedals, giving you full foot control over everything from vintage wah effects to tempo-driven delays and more.

  • Hard Hardware

    As reviewed by Noah Montena on 9/13/2010

    The site write-up, as well as the documatation and videos at the Digidesign website, pretty much does all the features enough justice. Thoughtfully selected presets, some named in the game show topic convention of the artist who inspired them ("Irish Echo" and "Lunar Steps" are my particular favorites), and the ability to modify them or create your own is obviously huge. The ability to function as an A/D-D/A interface, with five separate streams going to ProTools simultaneously, and pre and post amp streams available for tracking or performing dry and wet, is major. Free ProTools 8LE included - what can I say? But where this piece of gear really distinguishes itself from other effects is the build quality. And it should, shouldn't it? If you wanted presets and streams, you'd use your DAW and any number of quality plug-ins (Eleven, anyone?) and interfaces. What the Eleven rack has in spades is grunt. Every piece of it, down to the anodized orange plug-in reminiscent "skin" of the front panel, is hefty and stable. The panels don't flex when you push connectors in, and the knobs don't wag when you twist them. The phone and guitar jacks have a firm but smooth action that has to be felt to be appreciated. The case has a solid clunk to it when you wrestle it into your rack, not a chintzy clink. The rack ears even have generous bolt holes, taking care of lining up the screws even on the oddest rack case, but are sturdy enough to hold the Eleven in place with just two screws (not that you should). Again, there are no flies on the features and performance of the Eleven Rack, and you can find out all about that from the product page and the other reviewers, but what you won't hear anyone mention, and what you can't know before you order one, is that this is an extremely well built and well thought-out piece of gear.

  • "This one goes to eleven..."

    As reviewed by Kevin on 10/25/2010

    If Eleven Rack would have been around in the 80"s, Nigel Tufnel would have been using it with glee. I have been using Line 6 PODXT for about 5 years, but this is even better. The "true Z input" is a great feature offering a realistic impedance response when lowering volume pot on the guitar. The Amp models are great. I am a guitar player, song writer, and a professional recording engineer, and having this around as a sonic tool opens up musical horizons for me and my clients. It would be nice to have access to real vintage amps, but a lot of us aren?t that wealthy. So for people like me, Eleven Rack is a dream come true. For those naysayers that suggest the plug-in version is equally, if not better; they forget about one critical aspect. The plug-ins eat up processor memory, RAM, and offers you more latency which in turn makes you start to fiddle with all the playback engine options and so on. Eleven Rack feels more realistic than anything else I have ever used. This is a homerun tool for your recording studio. If I were to pick anything negative to say then it would be that I suspect Digidesign and Avid will offer more amps, mics, cabs, and effects at an additional price in the near future. After spending a lot of money on this, those "upgrades" should be free. But, to sum it all up, it still goes to 11...

    You can go read about all the technical specs of this unit all over the web, and there are a million reviews of this product that are all favorable, and I have to say I agree. I was micing a mesa boogie dual rectifier into Cuebase before getting the eleven rack, and it sounded great, but... the variations on the different cabs this thing offers and the sound quality is superb. Unless you can afford to buy 10 different cabs for your home studio, you can not beat this unit. There is no color to your recordings (It records and plays back exactly as it sounds). The interface with Pro Tools is very intuitive, and being a Cuebase user, I jumped right into recording songs with a quick 5 minute read of the quick start manual. You can assign any of the guitar effects to apply to the bass or your mic through the xlr front input or the left or right inputs, which makes for some crazy vocal and bass capabilities. Long and short of it is, I just got done recording my first song completely through this unit and it sounds totally awesome. (I cheated and used my drum machine). My only problem with this unit is that you have to buy a $50 down load in order to mix your songs down to MP3. Without it you can only mix down into wav. files. No big deal, just a minor inconvenience. If you can afford to get an Eleven Rack, do so. You will not be disappointed.
