Rocktron really could be asking a lot more for this processor. It only has one down side, the programing of effects is changing the origanal ones it came with (you can set them back though) and you have to scroll through the knobs a lot to tweak out your sound, thus a lot of time spent working instead of playing. The sound is killer though!!! Clean and more than enougheffects to keep you busy for a long time! It is everything you could want in an affordable effects processor.

I was dissapointed with this product. The sounds are pretty good and transparent; although, i have noticed a hiss when i play clean. The unit thins out my amps tone severely, even with the eq section bypassed. Two of the knobs have stopped turning. If i didn't have the MIDI mate i couldn't use the unit at all. A few times now, while adjusting parameters, the unit has just shut off. The blue flashing light is annoying. Do not buy this unit. I've used rocktron products for a while. They just cheaped out on this one. I have a marshall tsl/jackson rhoads v/gibson sg/fender strat. All of my gear is top end and this thing won't cut it

Rocktron Xpression Unit

By Marc Bolger

from Centeral California

Comments about Rocktron Xpression Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

The Bypass switch is nice. The tap tempo with the blue airplane light is cool too. The ability to use a serious switch board for it is a good thing to invest into if this unit suits your fancy. I use this unit looped in one 5150 III and a Lexicon MX400 looped in the other 5150 III in series with a BBC Sonic Maximizer. My sound is awesome through the Greenback 20's. But I really enjoy the Lexicon unit much more. Even though I can only program two effects layered at a time it is plenty for me looped in back. Some will argue that the Rocktron unit is the core JP thing and that it simply rules in a sense. It can indeed but working the two units side by side with two of the same amp set ups let me just say this. Quality vs Quanity? In a nut shell the delays in the Lexicon can be set to 5 seconds of delay. And there is several of them including Reverbs and Modulations that sound anything but cheap. And their so transparent they don't touch my amps tone. The Chorus/Flange made me almost fall out of the chair it was so lush and transparent with what Im running. 24bit processing, these units are really created for some studio application and the MX400's also have 1/4" in's and Outs making it very simple for guitar amp signal use. There is no major switch board for it though but I really don't need that. There is a switch box that can be used that works to move channels up and down. Im pulling the Rocktron and saving it in a box because it is a keeper but the Lexicon sounds so good in the other head I want it in both. Also ...the wallwart for a power supply in the Rocktron is kind of an indicator of a slightly less quality item compared to the Lexicon. So I ordered another one for both sides. I like to play with two signals. I like two amps or sometimes three. It makes the sound HUGH and much nicer. The Rocktron is a nice unit though. Just wanted to tell people what is working for me. Try it at the store first and see what works for you. or try it here with Musicians friend. They are pretty fair at returning things to taylor your needs.
No ,...I don't work here either. ;p)
The features are alright. Comon with other rack units in a sense. Rocktron does make foot switches that help one get around quite a bit in the Rocktron units. One thing that I really have not liked in this unit and the Rocktron units in general mainly is the way you have to set parameters within a given program or effect. It is a little bit limited and just not as nice as the Lexicon units I have tried in that area.
Some people have complained about popping or snapping noises. One Rep at Rocktron over the phone told me that the reason they switched and went to this model was because environmental regulations made the current chips and certain parts no longer legal to employ. This is a drag. This is why I think that some people's amps react to the newer chemistry of semi conductors. Like maybe older amps with different circuit chemistries if that makes sense. I use two 5150 III's and this didn't happen to me. I looped the unit through one of my heads. it sounds pretty good. But these are more modern heads.
It's a good unit. But it only has roughly 1 second of delay. Good for the basic guitar signal though. It will layer up to 9 or 10 different effects at once. Big deal. Doesn't mean much to me. Some of the effects in it were not too impressive to me. You can be creative but programing effects in a Rocktron gets old to me. Mainly the way they structure the format on how your supposed to apply parameters for a given effect. The Wall wart is a bummer too for a power supply compared to units that do not. Not all times, but sometimes there is a difference.
I simply do not enjoy that as much as other units I have used.

Analog bypass not the same

By Twn Fusion1

from North Carolina

Comments about Rocktron Xpression Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

Great sounds but It WILL suck the tone and life out of your amp if you don't have a true bypass in your effects loop. I am constantly working on beefing up my already beefed up and modded Marshalls to keep my tone when using this product but it is a challenge. Great sounds but am disappointed about the bypass on this one. Rocktron should really include true bypass on the next models.

STAY AWAY!

By Shredking2010

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Rocktron Xpression Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

Do not buy this thing. It can have a good sound with enough tweaking, but do not expect your original full tone to come through. It seems to suck the strength of the signal down significantly. I've tried everything that i could think of to not get that result. Its built cheaply. Two knobs have stopped working. With out the MIDI mate i couldn't use it at all. I baby my all of my equipment. The power has cut off suddenly a couple of times.

Rocktron!! Good One!!

By Marc Bolger

from Fresno California

Comments about Rocktron Xpression Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

I am familiar with Rocktron and the history so I was looking at some options for my Two Fender 5150 III Heads. I also wanted to get rid of some clutter with Floor Pedals so I wanted to try this unit and compare it with what I was doing. After about a week I have decided to put my Pedals away! At least for now. I still run the Paul Gilbert Flanger on the floor with a Vox Satriani waw. Love that waw! But the Xpression is looped in series with my Sonic Maximizer and into one of my two stacks. The other stack is dry. The delays are beautiful and transparent. Learning to program the Rocktron is well worth it. make sure you choose Guitar and then choose levels and either also choose Mono or Stereo in the Mix when you program effects. Running this thing through the loop is all I need. Except for a Midimate to call up effects which is coming as soon as I can. If Ihad anything to change with it I would say maybe the color of it. This is totally unimportant but I would have gone with Black like the previous models and maybe called it a Cobra or a Black Mumba with a cool Logo... but thats just no matter at all considering it's transparent sound. The flashing light doesn't bother me at all in my rack. I like Lights in my rack anyway...the flashing light reminds me of a Fighter Jet. Since people actually complain about a light flashing... Rocktron backs it up for three years. This unit has more than the last model in it and I love what it does for me in my rig. 5150III with two of the matching cabs!! Trust me,...for me to go ahead and put my pedals away....It does the trick. If it breaks I will get another one. I also have had no trouble with those poping sounds that some people mentioned. So far so good...

Great :-)

By Nero F. RoxXx

from Long Island, NY

Comments about Rocktron Xpression Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

I got this thing as a multi-effects for my rack rig, now i only use the delay, reverb, pitch and to mute my rig when i tune, the best thing about it is that you can change all the controller assigments for every effect and every parameter,not too crazy about the mods that it comes with only the rotary speaker is really good, if you need a really nice reverb and delay i recommend it.

great for thre money

By Kev-Yx6gQ

from modesto, ca

Comments about Rocktron Xpression Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

I am very pleased with this product, when I first got it I had a little trouble understanding the features of the rocktron midimate foot controller I have to go with it. But once I figured it out I am very excited about it.All the effects sound amazing and I am very pleased with the transparentness of the unit when I turn off all the effects. I run a marshall jcm800 and/or jcm2000 dsl live with this and I love it to death.To be honest I was skeptical about it at first...I'm a bit of one of those tubefreaks so the thought of a multieffects processor scares me but once I got it hooked up in my rack setup I was very impressed.Now my tone is much more versital, with a quick foot stomp I can change parametric EQ settings along with endless effects and I love the fact that you can set each preset to have different noisegate and compression settings. No more crappy sounding choppy cleans for me when I try to keep my jcm800 quiet under loud stage volumesAs a side note, most of the presets arent all that great but the liefson flanger setting and the pantera preset sound exactly like their tones through my setup, I was amazed at how much I can shape my sound without changing guitars or amps.

awsome

By takamine13

from united states

Comments about Rocktron Xpression Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

this is and awsome effects unit. this is an updated version of what judas priest use live. i was always messing with my tone every day but then i got this. now every day i love my tone and others do to it sounds amazing. no more stompboxes all you need is a midi board to controll for stage. if kk and tipton use it it must be good. just have to learn how to use it becasue it is very difficult at first. but once you know how your going to be golden. it doesnt have distortion so jus buy like a boss overdrive and you are set.

WOW

By Petrucciator

from Laredo, Tx

Comments about Rocktron Xpression Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

i just got this little bad boy a few days ago, and the stock presets are really good. Although i still havent figured out how to make my own sound on preset 128 heh, ill read the manual later. I plugged this neat toy into my effects loop and the delays and choruses were just so rich. I could actually hear every note. For the price and for what it puts out, this is a great investment. Im Happy !!
