From hot-rodded rock and roll to metal, the DigiTech RP90 has everything you need to get the tones you want or need. To top it all off, the chorus and DigiTech Whammy effects can be re-arranged to go before the amp model or after”whichever you desire.

The DigiTech RP90 modeling pedal features a 1/4" guitar input along with separate left and right 1/4" output jacks. Connect to either an amplifier or mixer for direct recording with a press of the Amp/Mixer switch that engages the internal speaker cabinets. Rounding off the outputs is a separate, stereo 1/8" headphone jack for practice. To control the Wah and Whammy, use the Digitech RP90's built in pedal.

Because music isn't just about getting tones but writing songs, the DigiTech RP90 multi effects pedal also features 40, high-quality drum patterns to aid music creation and practice.

personaly i enjoyed this while it lasted. a year and a half of ok tone and moderetly good effects. but i got a nice tube amp and im saving up for a line 6 pod hd 500.
if you think this is going to be a veritille piece of kit that is going to last you years and years think again. get it for your kid with his first Strat and it will be cool. but if you are looking for something that can deal out the goods then your going to have to deal out the $$$$$$
This box is very limited in features.

in order of programing.

volume: first off is the preset level. it is very hard to zero in a good level seeing as if you add any effect it is going to affect the volume in a way you wouldnt expect (tremelo turns the volume way down for some reason and so does auto wah)

pickup/ wah: very unrealistic sounding. very fake. The pickup effect allows you to make a single coil sound like a humbucker an vise versa. But it is very unconvincing. The wah is not terrible but it could be much better.

compressor: fine, does exatly what it is supposed to do

Amp/ Distortion: There are no actual distortion stompbox effects but rather amp simulators with amounts of distortion from 1 to 9. I have had this for almost to year and have still yet to find a quality sounding distortion. I always leave the amp simulator off and use my amps distortion instead.

equalizer: once again. not much that can go wrong here. works fine

noise gate: big problem here, all of the presets have this set to 3 and it pisses me off. the master level (bottom right round button) if set to low makes it so that the presets are hard to hear. and its annoying as hell to try and go through all the effects and change the prest level (big volume issue)
long story short the noise gate often cuts off my sound to much. rather then killing the buzz it kills the whole note. if i set it lower then 3 then the buzz gets bad.

chorus/ fx: exatly what it says it does. you can have one mod effect. THATS IT! very annoying when you try to play a song that needs a auto wah and a phaser or a chorus and a flange. i found it especialy diffuclut to edit the effects becuase you cant control the parameters like a real stompbox (this whole box works with levels of 1 through 9, but you can only control the one parameter. for example in tremello, you can control the speed of the trem. thats it. no depth no eq, just speed. and seeing as you only get speed 1, 2, 3 etc. up to 9 a lot of trem speed is missed. VERY FRUSTRATING) thankfuly the delay is a different thing, so is the reverb.

delay: best part of the unit. greats sounds. I use the rp90 for mostly delay as it have very convincing delays. has two parameters unlike the rest of effects (speed and feedback)
love them!

reverb: ehhhh. i use my amps reverb cause it sounds better.

expression: very pleased. you can control most things with the exp. pedal i use it for delay volume a lot becuase you cant set the delay volume individualy.

DRUMS
Pattern: very strange only a few normal usefull patches. most are wierd ones that a real drummer would never play.
Tempo: DUH
Level: DOUBLE DUH


The presets are edited by using the edit up and down buttons. up moves clock wise from preset level to expression. down goes the other way. when you reach something you want to edit you use the value buttons to change from 1 through 9. very simple. when you get it the way you want you click store then get it to the patch where you want it (50 patches can be edited)
then click it again.
tone library scrolls you through the various amp models, effect library scrolls you trhough the effects.
broke on me after a year of giging. its not meant to be used for a long time. its a plastic box with little up and downfoot switches and malfunctioned on me after a short period. i had to take it apart and fix it. turns out all that the up and down switches do are hit tiny little buttons on a computer chip. cuase the led to change # and the preset to change.

you get what you pay for . for a hundered dollars dont expect something great.
for someone who cant afford anything else this is awesome. great for little kids messing around in their bedroom. but when you start gigging with da big boys dont expect this to hold up to thier 250 dollar 1 effect pedals.

Great Multi-Effect pedal for the Money

By NOAH HUDSON

from Katy, Texas

Comments about Digitech RP90 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I got this pedal for my birthday, and it is awesome. The pedal has made my amp (Fender Frontman 25r) and my guitars (Squier Strat and Epiphone Special Les Paul) come alive. I love the Whammy effect (great for White Stripes music). The RP90 comes with its own Power Supply (unlike Boss pedals) so you don't have to shell out extra cash for something required to use. The distortion effects are really good, that being said, I own a Boss DS-1 pedal and the DS-1 effect on the RP90 wasn't spot on, but it was close. I play anywhere from classic rock/Metal (METAL ie: Ozzy/Randy) and blues to Grunge and Punk, and this pedal handles it all. Only downside to me was the pedal seems a little small, but I have a size 13 shoe so I'm not going to take away any stars for that. For my first multi-effect pedal, I'm very happy, and it only cost $60.00. (on sale, i believe the regular price is $100.00 but still that is amazing)

    This is my 2nd purchase of this style pedal Owned the RP 80 for 10 years. Now have purchased the RP 90 as the expression pedal no longer works on the older one. This is perfect for my use.

    Comments about Digitech RP90 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    This replaced my older Korg Toneworks AX1500G. Much easier to program and the effects quality is much better. Love that effects can be combined on one preset, which minimizes number of stomp boxes. Only downside is that expression pedal sits lower than the preset select switches. Its easy to accidentally change presets when adjusting expression pedal. Remedied by putting a 1/2" rubber block on expression pedal to raise above preset switches, it works like a champ and is not noticeable.

    Comments about Digitech RP90 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    I bought the RP90 for practice and hoped to use it for some recording. I got it and wasn't too impressed with the sound quality. There seemed to be some "dirt" or noise in the background of the effects when using headphones. The other thing is it's not battery operated so it's not very mobile. I was going to return it, but the price to do so out weighs me trying to trade it at a local store. I will remember this the next time I even think about using the "no-hassle return" policy.

    Does everything well for its price point, just wish I had known it did not run on batteries. Having to plug it into a power socket every time I want to use it is a major pain. It limits its use to just one place in my studio.

        Comments about Digitech RP90 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

        I own both Digitech RP90 and Behringer X-Vamp multieffects pedals. Each pedal does a few things that the other doesn't do, so they both have their place. The Digitech has better quality sounds, even the wah-wah is pretty good. And the distortion sounds on the Digitech all have subtle differences, whereas the ones on the Behringer all sound pretty much the same.

        I am kind of a technophobe with modern gadgets, but I found the Digitech owner's manual easy to understand, follow, and use for reference. Setting up the effects and parameters is easy, just scroll through the effects that are lit up on LEDs and set the values.

        The best thing about the Digitech is that it can make humbucker pickups sound bright like strat single-coil pickups and vice versa. I play through a BC Rich Warbeast, which is a great inexpensive guitar with humbuckers. The Warbeast has one glaring weakness, it sounds very muddy especially in the low-pitched tones. Play a song with a slow strum like "House of the Rising Sun" and the notes just kind of mush together and sound bad. But with the Digitech pedal I can switch to the bright sound and it is all better, the muddiness is gone.

          for the price range, it is one of the most versatile multi efx processors for live and background applications. it is not a true lead processor, but volume/wah pedal functions well and is versatile for background and beginners to learn the vocabulary.For its price range, one would be hard pressed to find a better multi unit.
