I just got the RP250 a week ago. Looks like it was replaced with the RP255. From what I can see they are the same thing (may a couple extra effects/models in the RP255) - though the RP250 was only $99. Still, for $149 this is a bargain. The effects sound genuine and the amp/cabinet models are very good. Programming interface is a little tough because of all that you have to control through a few buttons and 4 knobs. This is solved with the software you can download from DigiTech. S/W is simple to use and allows you to easily program up new effects chains and models - way easier than trying to do the same across multiple stomp boxes. Took about 4min to get up and running. Follow the instructions on Digitech.com The USB interface allows you to record on your PC (I use Audacity). PC playback goes back through the device into the amp and allows you to record more tracks at the same time - cool for when you want to layer a few tracks. The presets kept me busy for the first 10 hours, but then I had to start tweaking them to get sounds to preference. But they make a great starting point to put together your own sounds. I am absolutely happy I bought this. No matter the level of musician this thing is a great fit - ease of use, variety of effects/models, portability, ease of programming, and recording aid. Hope this helped.

Dont buy this.I bought this to use strictly as a practice toy so I wouldn't have to pack and unpack my gig stuff for practicing at home. While some of the preset sounds are nice, it is overly complex for creating new tones. Also, it completely burned out in six months of practice use. It never left my bedroom, so it took none of the abuse regular gig stuff does. While these things sometimes happen, the company gave me a real hard time about honoring their warranty. GC stepped in and made everything cool, like they always do, but without the help of digitech. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this unit and company.

Best Multi Effects Pedal

By Mitch

from Houston, Texas

I got this a week ago, and so far I love it. It has 60 presets to start you out, and there's room for 60 of your own. This machine is very durable yet still looks cool. When making your own effects, there are endless combinations you can make by using different distortion, amps, wah, flanger, etc. The Wah and Whammy effects are my favorites, but I use every single effect for playing different songs and different styles of music. You can play Metallica to country to Tom Morello. This is a must have for every guitarist, I definitely recommend it.

Digitech RP255 RAWKS!!!

By Digi-Mon!

from Rockville,CA.

Just got my RP255 about 2 weeks ago. I have to say that I am very impressed-The Amps,Effects,and presets on this unit are all very useable. And tweaking the factory settings is pretty easy and fun, once you get the hang of it. The price is a great bargain. And I am looking foward to making some great new recordings with this unit soon. Don't hesitate to buy the RP255, you'll be glad you did!

Amazing pedal

By Patrick

from Massachusetts

I've been playing the bass for years and own the BP50 pedal. I got a guitar several months ago and bought the RP255 for it a few days ago. The pedal is amazing. It sounds fantastic, but the most impressive feature is definitely its compatibility with the computer. The X-Edit software is extremely easy (and fun) to use. The tone library on DigiTech.com is also awesome. Unfortunately I don't know how to connect the pedal to my speakers so I have to edit the effects on my computer then plug the pedal back into my amp and test the effects out there. The owner's manual doesn't help because it only shows a simple diagram. Lastly, the pedal is made of metal, which is great. Overall, amazing pedal, especially for a beginner guitarist like me.

AMAZING!!!!!

By RYGUY

from naperville, IL

Tis little thing has every effect and sound you could want. The looper is amazing and very easy to use too! It is very easy to scroll through song in the middle of a show. You could find the sound you want, edit it a little, and save it with a new name, like perhaps the name of that song it sounds like. Then let's say theres a solo in the song but you need a different sound so you edit the effect next to that one and make it sound like the solo and just name it the (song name) and solo. Its so EASY!!! I would highly reccomend it and also great for the PRICE!!!!!

Great machine

By ALEKS

from DC

This thing is so cool! Amp, stompbox and cabinet simulator are so great, I can completely create my favorite tone. The USB interface comes to make a perfect processor that I wanted! It's also a very beautiful machine. I love Digitech!

Awesome Product

By Bryan Roth

from Burlington, NJ

This Multi Effects Pedal is an awesome product for anyone. I play lead and rythem guitar in a Praise band. We play several types of styles. You can customize your own settings. If you plug this into a computer, you can save your settings on it. Plus, you get more options when you use a computer.

Replacement

By John Paschall

from Champaign Illinois

I had the RP250 but needed a looper so my brother got the 250 and I got the 255 2 weeks ago. I love it once I figure out the Cubase software my troubles will be over.I was strictly an analog guy all of my life. The digital equipment is fresh and exciting and a big learning curve. You should hear this played through my Vox VT series amp.

Great Pedal

By Robert

from Valparaiso, IN

this is a great pedal. the settings are very precise and can tweat to match tones to perfection. it also has a 20 second looper which is fun to play with. i would highly recommend this pedal. i also see a comment from someone giving it three stars. he complained saying that if you want to turn off distortion, you have to stop and scroll down and turn it off. disreguard that comment for it is done by one hit of your foot. the whole point of the presets is to tune distortion on in one, then off in another. that simple. *there are 120 presets to fill*
