so here is the deal..
I have a Roland Cube 60x and i completely love it.. it's very versatile and i love all the effects that it has.

My older brother got a brand new RP500 and he gave it to me, he told me that if i like it i can keep it.

The problem is: i know multi-effects sound like crap in modelling amps, is there any way possible i can make it sound better?

Put the EQ of the amp in 0 and use the EQ of the pedal? i dont know..

please help me with this

multi effects = modeling amp
multi effects + modeling amp = crappy tone
multi effects + good clean channel amp = good tone

if you went from the output of the RP500 to the CD/aux input on the cube, you wouldnt get that "modeling+modeling" sound. let your brother keep it, stick with the cube until you start moving on to t3h t00bz

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Probably your best option is through the cd/aux like nutinpwnsgibson said. On my DA 20 it does bypass the preamp that way. Give it a try and see what you think.

Pick a clean channel. Make sure the output level isn't too high on the RP500 to avoiding clipping in the Roland's preamp. Nobody here can give you an answer. So go give it a try and tell us how it sounds. Using the CD/MP3 input is a good suggestion to try as well. However you will need some adapters for your guitar cable's 1/4" mono to CD input's 1/8" stereo.

On my DA the cd/aux is 1/4". You need the adapter for the cd/mp3 player.

Use the RP500 in amp/cabinet bypass mode and you got yourself a cool pedalboard with preset capabilities.
