I know there have been shitloads of threads on the POD and BOSS but haven't been able to find out much info on the RP1000. I'm considering a multi fx unit for home recording and would be interesting to try in the fx loops of my tube amps as well. Would be wonderfull if I was able to get a dual use from a single unit. The main issue I have found with other multi fx I have heard in the past is like so many others, the drives/distortions sound terrible. No tube character just flat and lifeless. I will say though it's been a few years since I looked into modelling so am sure things have improved. I did hear a couple of clips B-Squared did which sounded really good. Pitty he can't play terribly well So just a couple of questions but please add anything else you believe is relevent. Are you able to use your tube amps drive coupled with any of these? Which one in your opinion has the best/most convincing drives and distortions? Which one has the best fx? Are any more suited to either PC recording or live use through a tube amp? I am also a bit of a technical dumbass which from what I have researched so far is making me lean towards the X3 or the RP1000. The G-10 does seem to be complicated. Out of those two probably learning towards to X3 due to its support base, downloads etc. Anyways, any help you can provide me with would be really appreciated.
