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.

All multi effects processors struggle with making the programming interface simple -- especially given limited space. Digitech did a good job of providing intuitive editing of patches, but this is not something that can be done with your foot, so in that sense, you cannot make changes on the fly while your on stage. For stage use, you would have to program a handful of patches that cover the majority of your requirements and be able to switch through them in a logical sequence like Clean > Crunch > Distortion > Lead/Solo, etc.
Off stage, the onboard programming interface is pretty easy to use, but I highly recommend the free PC software. It allows you to edit the RP255 via USB and it is amazingly simple to use (I run it on a mac). You can make changes on the PC while playing and instantly hear the results.
The sound quality is excellent. The device is remarkably quiet, even with distortion patches. The variability between amp, speaker, and distortion choices is significant and the EQ has a dramatic effect, if necessary. I also find that the device responds nicely to dynamics allowing you to lighten your picking or roll back the volume to control overdrive and distortion.
The looper is simple to use and works as advertised. It's obviously not as full-featured as a dedicated unit, but it's enough to hit a groove jam on it.
The drum patches are limited and the sounds were a little thin. This is not something that I would recommend for anything other than practicing -- when you just need some background.
I haven't fully explored the Wha capabilities. I think the key is to ensure that the Wha is a 100% of the mix otherwise the effect gets lost.
I might be asking for a bit much at this price point, but one feature that I would like to see added is the ability to accept MIDI via the USB interface for the purposes of patch changes and accepting external clock for time-based effects like tremolo, delay, etc.
I replaced a Behringer V-Amp3, and the RP255 is far superior. The expression pedal and the software interface alone would be enough, but the sounds, dynamics, and on-board programming interface all come together to make this a great processor.
Bottom line: If you had to have one device, this is a great choice.
Multiple efx, excellent sound, complete control, sculptable. If you have room for one pedal, this is the best pedal for price versus use.
Seems solid and contains many options. A bit complicated for a newbie to affects pedals which I am. Still working through all the options.
I'm a beginner and this is my first attempt at effects. I use it mostly to beef up the sound at bedroom levels, so I can play at very low amp setting and still get a decent sound to play against backing tracks from my computer. Works very well once you learn its capabilities. I'm getting to where I can duplicate to tones used by various artists. The drum machine is a much better way to learn timing and phrasing and its also very easy to use. I feel it has improved my playing, mostly blues.
Had it for about a month and the pedal stopped working. Seems to be a common complaint for this item. Easy to figure out but not very durable.
the sound was good, but the pedal stop working and later the whole pedal stop working. I think ill try something else next time
great deal for a foot pedal multi effect
the effects are awesome everything is awesome but the only problem i have is when im using the whammy or wah and it turns off because i press it alittle hard and i cant help that.
i have really enjoyed using this pedal.
I have had so much fun with my RP255! It may not be something you would use for live performances due to the slower switching compared to more expensive stomp boxes and somewhat "plasticky" build, but dollar for dollar you'd be hard pressed to find more features in a single unit. If nothing else it inspires you to play, to explore and mainly to just have fun and isn't that what playing is all about! Worth every penny...
