I haven't found any reviews on this, but it seems cool.
I've heard that 'modelling' stuff is good, (at least I THINK that's what I heard...)

The price isn't that much of an issue, just gotta know whether or not it's worth getting.
If it is, I'll start saving for it after I get my C-7 Hellraiser.


I already have a Zoom Multi-Effect, but looking at this pedal it seems pretty awesome, but I don't want to spend money on something that's not gonna do much for me.

Pro's, con's is pretty much what I'm looking for here. Please and thank you, of course.

inb4 "Multi-effects suck. Buy a million stompboxes that would cost 600x the price of buying one compact little piece of equipment, as well as fill your entire room with stuff that you would have to walk back and forth 'dancing' to try and change 6 different pedals at once, where as with a Multi-effect, you have to push one button to change a patch which changes everything at once with almost ZERO latency. Seriously, how lame is that."

Sorry about that, but I don't get how "stompboxes sound better" is a reasonable response that outways all the pluses of mutli-effect units. But to each their own.

I don't know who said multi effects suck? it all depends on how you intend to use them. I hear good things about the RP-1000 but I would also check out the new Line 6 Pod HD300/500

EDIT: Which Zoom FX pedal do you have? I don't see much point in having 2 multi fx

I've got an RP500. Its a pretty good pedal IMO. Amp models arent perfect, but they sound good. Nothing on a genuine tube amp, but as multiple different distortion modes, it works great.

EDIT: Stompboxes are usually analogue. MFX units are digital, and thus lower end units usually cannot replicate the sound of a stompbox properly. You will notice a massive difference between something like an RP1000 or a Boss GT10 as compared to your Zoom.

unless u are going to use the extra stuff on the rp1000, get the rp500. both are very similar, the 1000 might have a few more amp models/effects/features otherwise they're the same thing.

So, go for it?

Try it out first.
The RP1000 has the amp & stompbox loops, along with 5 more footswitches for more flexibility than compared to a RP500. So if you need those then RP1000 is the way to go.
If I could find a GSP1101 & Control 2 foot controller for around the price of an RP1000 then I'd go for the GSP instead as long as I update the firmware to v.C48 on it which is easy to do anyways.

Honestly I don't think the RP1000 is worth it, the RP500 is good enough for me. But it's a decent board. I used it for overdrive and distortion, before switching to legit pedals. Mulitieffects are great, but if your getting it for distortion/overdrive, get real pedals, seeing as multieffects digital units cannot actually "push/drive" your amp. As for Delay, Reverb, etc. I really like it. I've actually run this straight into the return ion the effects loop of my peavey, basicall making it my preamp, and using the power amp of my VK. It actually sounded pretty decent. In the end, it's all in what you are going to use it for. Using it for effects = Great pedal, Using it for Overdrive/Distortion = Not that great.

I'm not entirely sure on what 'the extra stuff' is.

Ah-hem.
Ever used a g2? Sharp, tinny digital tone. Very artificial, to my ears at least.

I own one actually, and when used through a good amp and dialed in correctly sounds very good

Yeah, I think mine sounds pretty okay. I'm able to dial in some pretty good sounding stuff.

I haven't had much experience with stompboxes and the ones I have, they sucked so much shaft. *cough*My friend's MetalZone*cough*

Hmm......I could never get a decent tone out of a friends G2....he bought is second hand off another friend for the princely sum of 15 dollars........


BTW the RP1000 has a 40S looper vs the 20S on the 500, more switches, a few more models, an FX loop, and what else slips my mind.

I'd use the money toward a decent amp. You can add to your budget by selling the Fender and Zoom.

IMO, how satisfied people are with multi-effects depends on what you expect. I have the RP500, I didn't really see enough features that the RP1000 to make it worth the extra money (But I've also heard you can do the 4 cable method with the RP1000, my amp doesn't have an effects loop so it doesn't make any difference to me). The thing I love about this pedal is that I reuglarly play gigs on electric, acoustic, and bass, and if I don't want to haul my pedalboard/amp/etc, I can just grab my respective instrument, this pedal, and some cables. The XLR output is really helpful, I don't really understand why it's any better than the direct out but the soundguys I work with seem to prefer it.
