Multi-Effects Pedal Now a Recording Interface

Salt Lake City, UT (March 19, 2008) - DigiTech is now shipping its versatile RP350 Multi-Effects Modeling Processor with Steinberg’s Cubase LE4 Music Production Software, creating a turnkey guitar recording solution.

The inclusion of Cubase software enhances the RP350’s already versatile capabilities; via the RP350’s USB connection, guitars can be recorded directly to PC or Mac, then captured and edited using Cubase LE4’s 48-track DAW. As an added bonus, Cubase LE4 features VST soft-synth instruments, such as drums, for additional creative power. This combination makes it easy to arrange, record and produce music in one simple package.

The RP350 features over 118 amplifiers, cabinets, effects and stompboxes. Housed in a rugged, roadworthy die-cast metal chassis, the RP350 features a built-in expression pedal to control wahs, volume and other effect parameters. The RP350 can also be edited from PC or Mac using the included DigiTech X-Edit editing software.

Playing a melody or solo with a “drone” means playing over just one note or, in some instances, one chord. Besides playing without any harmonic accompaniment, it is about as simple a concept as one can image, which also means the possibilities are endless. We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
