“What are you looking at?” asked my wife while she walked up behind me, looking at my computer screen.
Me: “something I absolutely NEED!!!”
She: (The look!)
I sighed, and answered “A Digitech RP250 Multi-Effects/Modeling Processor”
“What’s THAT?”, she wanted to know.
Now, HOW does one explain an RP250?
I thought about this for a while …
… do you start by explaining the ‘68 Marshall® 100 Watt Super Lead (plexi) Amp module?
or tell her about the mild-to-wild classic distortion stompbox models including TS-808, DOD® 250, ProCo Rat, Big Muff® Pi?
but then, suddenly, there is Jimi Hendrix and his Vox® Clyde McCoy Wah.
the “USB connectivity for recording, preset editing archiving and downloading and more.” is very cool, but then ..
you spot the “‘81 Mesa/Boogie®* Mark II C”
But wait! There is more!
There is the ‘65 Fender® Blackface Deluxe Reverb!
24 bit, 44.1kHz Sampling rate!
A high quality drum machine with 60 patterns.
The new AudioDNA2 ® DSP super-chip.
A 30-preset Quick Start Effects Chain Library.
And and and ….
And then there is the spousal verdict, very loud, very clear:
“If you don’t know what it is, YOU CAN’T HAVE IT!”
