About the RP155
Performance Mode
When you first apply power to the RP155, it powers up in Performance mode. Performance mode
provides access to all of the presets within the RP155 via the Up and Down Footswitches.
Knob 1 selects a tone from the Tone Library, Knob 2 selects an effect combination from the Effects Library, Knob 3 adjusts the Effects Level, and Knob 4 adjusts the Master Level (volume).
Bypass Mode
The RP155 presets can be bypassed via a true analog bypass circuit for a clean, unprocessed guitar
signal. To bypass the RP155, press both Footswitches simultaneously. The Display reads By
indicating the preset is bypassed. Press either Footswitch to exit Bypass and return the RP155
to the last preset used.
Tuner Mode
The Tuner in the RP155 allows you to quickly tune or check the tuning on your guitar. Enter Tuner
mode by pressing and holding both Footswitches simultaneously. The Display briefly shows tu
indicating that you are in Tuner mode. To begin tuning, play a note on your guitar (a harmonic at
the 12th fret usually works best). The Display shows the note being played. The Matrix LEDs indicate whether you are sharp or flat. The top 5 red LEDs indicate the note is sharp and should be
tuned down. The bottom 5 red LEDs indicate the note is flat and should be tuned up. The center
green LED indicates the note is in tune. The output is muted in Tuner mode. Exit tuner mode by
pressing either Footswitch.

In Tuner mode, you can change your tuning reference. The default factory setting is A=440 Hz
(displayed as 40). Rotating Knob 1 selects alternate and dropped tunings. Alternate tunings are
A=453Hz to A=427 Hz (displayed as 53 to 27). Dropped tunings are A=A flat (displayed as A∫),
A=G (displayed as G), and A=G flat (displayed as G∫). The display window will briefly flash the currently selected tuning preference.
Exit Tuner mode by pressing either Footswitch.

Tone Library Knob
In Performance mode, this knob selects a variety of genre-based amp tone defaults ranging from
Blues to Metal to Country. Behind the scenes, the Compressor, Distortion, Amp/Cabinet model,
and EQ are configured to create a specified tone with a single click of this knob. You can further
refine the sound by editing the preset (see Editing/Creating Presets on page 16). Changing between
different Tone Library defaults does not change the Chorus/FX, Delay or Reverb, letting you experiment with different amp styles quickly in the context of the current effect chain.
Effects Library Knob
In Performance mode, this knob selects a variety of post-amplifier model effect chains (Chorus,
Chorus + Delay, Delay + Reverb, etc.).You can further refine the sound by editing the preset (see
Editing/Creating Presets on page 16). Changing between different Effects Library defaults does not
change the Compressor, Distortion, Amp/Cabinet model, and EQ settings, letting you experiment
with different effect chains quickly in the context of the current amp tone.
Effects Level Knob
In Performance mode, this knob changes the relative level of the post-amp effects (Chorus/FX,
Delay, and Reverb). This can be thought of as an effects mix control, where turning this knob
clockwise increases the level of these effects and turning it counter-clockwise decreases the level
of these effects.
Master Level Knob
This knob controls the overall output volume of all of the RP155’s presets.
X-EditTM Editor/Librarian
You can edit your RP155 with your computer, using the X-EditTM Editor/Librarian. Download X-EditTM, USB drivers, and documentation from www.digitech.com.
4
Presets
Presets are named and numbered locations of programmed sounds which reside in the RP155.
Presets are recalled with the Footswitches. The active effects in each preset are indicated by
lighted LEDs in the Effect Matrix. The RP155 comes with 50 User presets (1-50) and 50 Factory
presets (51-00). The User presets are locations where your creations may be stored. The Factory
presets do not allow you to store any changes to them. From the factory, the 50 User presets are
exact duplicates of the 50 Factory presets. This allows you to create your own presets without
losing the sounds that came with the RP155.
The Tone Library knob, Effects Library knob, and Effects Level knob make it easy to
quickly load preset tones, effects, and effects chains.
1. Select a tone
with the
Tone Library knob
2. Select an effect
3. Adjust the
or effects chain with the effects level with the
Effects Library knob

Section Two - Editing Functions
Editing/Creating Presets
The RP155 is designed to make preset editing and creation easy and intuitive. When creating
your own sound, you must first start with an existing preset. Note that the preset you begin
with doesn’t have to be in the memory location you intend to have it reside, since you can store
it to any User preset location during the store procedure.
The easiest way to start is by using the Tone Library and Effects Library knobs. The Tone
Library knob will let you select from a variety of pre-programmed amp/distortion tones (see
page 41) based on different musical styles. The Effects Library knob will then let you select
from a palette of effects chains (see page 42), from simple delays to full multi-effect signals with
modulation, delay and reverb. Use the Effects Level Knob to easily increase or decrease the
Chorus/FX, Delay and Reverb levels if desired. Using these three controls should get you close
to a sound you are after. From there you can then use the Edit buttons to navigate through the
individual effects for some fine tune edits.
16
To edit and create a custom preset:
1. Use the Footswitches to select the preset you wish to edit. If you are trying to find something different from the existing presets, begin by using the Tone Library, Effects Library, and
Effects Level knobs to get close to a sound you want.
2. Once you have a sound close to what you are after, begin editing the effect parameters by pressing the Edit Up/Down buttons and selecting the Effect row you want to edit.
3. To turn on or off an Effect row, press Knob 1 and then use Knobs 2-4 to modify the effects parameter settings.

Section Three - Models and Parameters
About the Models
The RP155 can be thought of as several different “virtual” amplifiers and individual, high-tech
stompboxes in a single programmable package. With stompboxes, the order in which they are
connected affects the overall sound. The RP155 has placed the Amp and Effect models in an order
for optimum results. The following diagram shows the order in which they are connected.

Model Definitions
Each Amp and Effect model within the RP155 can be programmed to suit your personal taste
and application. Understanding how these components alter the sound, and how each parameter
alters the effect, will help you achieve the sound you are looking for. The following overview of the
RP155’s effects outlines what each effect and parameter does.
Pickup
The Pickup Simulator provides the thick tone of a humbucker pickup to a guitar with single coil
pickups, or the bright, edgy sound of a single coil pickup to a guitar with a humbucker. This gives
you the best of both worlds without having to change guitars during a performance.
Pickup Model - Knob 1 selects the Pickup model to be simulated. Values include: sh
(gives a single coil pickup the warm tone of a humbucker), and hs (gives a humbucker the
unique sound of a single coil). Press this knob to turn Pickup modeling on and off.
Preset Level - Knob 4 adjusts the volume level for each preset individually.
Wah
Wah is an effect controlled by an Expression Pedal making the guitar sound as if it’s saying “Wah.”
Wah Model - Knob 1 selects the Wah model. Values include: FR (DigiTech® Full Range
Wah sweeps the entire spectrum of audible frequencies), Cb (Cry Wah is a traditional
sounding Wah), and mc (based on a Vox® Clyde McCoyTM Wah). Press this knob to turn Wah
models on and off.
Wah Minimum - Knob 2 adjusts the Wah Pedal Minimum. Ranges from 0 (toe up) to 99
(toe down).
Wah Maximum - Knob 3 adjusts the Wah Pedal Maximum. Ranges from 0 (toe up) to
99 (toe down).
20
Wah Level - Knob 4 adjusts the Wah Level. Ranges from 0dB to +12dB.
Compressor
A Compressor is used to increase sustain, tighten up guitars, and prevent the signal from clipping
the input of other effects. It sets a maximum boundary for the strength of a signal.
Comp Model - Knob 1 selects one of two Compressor models: DC (DigiTech® Main
Squeeze Compressor) or CS (Based on a Boss® CS-2 Compressor/Sustainer). Press this
knob to turn the selected Compressor models on and off.

these Effect models on and off. Only one of the effects in this row can be used at a time. After
selecting the type of effect in this module, Knobs 2-4 can then be used to adjust the individual
parameters associated with the selected effect. The following list describes each Effect model and
its parameters in more detail:
Chorus
A Chorus adds a short delay to your signal. The delayed signal is modulated in and out of tune and
then mixed back with the original signal to create a thicker sound. The RP155 includes the following Chorus Effect models: CE (based on the classic Boss® CE-2 Chorus), DC (DigiTech®’s Dual
Chorus), and MC (DigiTech’s famous Multi Chorus®).
Speed - Knob 2 adjusts the rate (Speed) of the modulation. Ranges from 0 to 99.

Waveform (X-Edit only for DigiTech Chorus models) - Selects a waveform: tr, Si, or
Sq (Triangle, Sine, or Square).
27
Flanger
A Flanger uses the same principle as a Chorus but uses a shorter delay time and adds regeneration
(or repeats) to the modulating delay. This results in an exaggerated up and down sweeping motion
to the effect. The RP155 includes the following Flanger Effect models: fL (the DigiTech Flanger),
and mx (based on an MXR® Flanger).

Depth - Knob 3 adjusts the intensity (Depth) of the modulating pitch. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Rotary Speaker (RO)
Rotary Speaker is an emulation of a device that included a spinning horn and woofer. The rotation
of these two speakers produced an interesting combination of the sound panning from side to side.
This produced a slight pitch change due to the speed of the sound coming towards, and then going
away from the listener.
Speed- Knob 2 adjusts the rate (Speed) of the spinning speakers. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Intensity - Knob 3 controls the intensity of the effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Doppler - Knob 4 controls the Pitch Shift effect that is the ratio between the horn and the
rotor positions. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Crossover (X-EditTM only)- Selects the crossover frequency between the horn and rotor.
Ranges from 0 (200 Hz) to 99 (1600 Hz).
Tremolo (TR)
A Tremolo effect modulates the volume of the signal at an even rate.
Speed - Knob 2 adjusts the rate (Speed) at which the volume modulates. Ranges from 0 to
99.
Depth - Knob 3 adjusts the intensity (Depth) of the modulating volume. Ranges from 0 to
99.
Waveform - Knob 4 selects a waveform: tr, Si, or Sq (Triangle, Sine, or Square).
29
Panner (PA)
An Auto Panner modulates the sound from left to right at an even rate.

Envelope Filter (ef)
The Envelope Filter is a dynamic Wah effect that alters your sound based upon how hard you play.
Sensitivity - Knob 2 adjusts the sensitivity or the input signal required to trigger the Wah
effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Range - Knob 3 controls the range of the Envelope effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.
AutoYa™ (AY)
An AutoYa combines the characteristics of a Wah and a Flanger together creating an almost human
vowel characteristic as if the guitar were saying “Yah.” The AutoYa™ automatically provides this
animation to the sound at an even rate.
Speed - Knob 2 adjusts the speed of the AutoYa sweep. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Intensity - Knob 3 adjusts the intensity of the AutoYa effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Range - Knob 4 adjusts the throaty quality of the AutoYa effect. Ranges from 0 to 49.
30
Step Filter (sf)
The Step Filter is like an automatic “random wah” with a square waveform.
Speed - Knob 2 adjusts the speed of the Wah effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Intensity - Knob 3 controls the intensity of the Wah effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.
DigiTech Whammy™ (wH)
The DigiTech WhammyTM is an effect that uses an Expression Pedal to bend the pitch of the incoming signal, or add a bendable harmony with the original signal. As the Pedal is moved, the note
bends either up or down. When DigiTech Whammy is selected, it is automatically placed before
the Amp modeling as shown in the block diagram on page 19.

5o (a fifth above to an octave above)
hu (one octave above)
hd (one octave down)
ud (octave up/down)
Pedal Position - Knob 3 provides a manual control of the Whammy pedal position.
Ranges from 0 to 99.
Mix - Knob 4 adjusts the Whammy mix. Ranges from 0 to 99.
31
Pitch Shift (Ps)
A Pitch Shifter copies the incoming signal, then shifts the pitch of the copy to a different note. The
shifted note is then mixed back with the original signal, sounding as if two guitars were playing
different notes.
Shift Amount - Knob 2 selects the interval of the shifted pitch. Ranges from –24 (2
octaves below) to 24 (2 octaves above).
Mix - Knob 4 controls the mix level of the shifted pitch. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Detune (Dt)
A Detuner makes a copy of your incoming signal, takes the copied signal slightly out of tune from
the original, then mixes the two signals together. The result is a doubling type of effect as if two
guitars were playing the same part together.
Shift Amount - Knob 2 adjusts the amount of pitch difference applied to the copied signal.
Ranges from –24 to 24 cents.
Level - Knob 4 controls the mix of the detuned note. Ranges from 0 to 99.
32
Harmony Pitch Shifting (HA)
Harmony Pitch Shifting makes a copy of the incoming signal, and then changes the pitch of the
copied note to a diatonically correct interval specified by the Amount parameter. A Harmony
Pitch Shifter sharpens or flattens the shifted pitch in order to keep the specified interval within
the selected key and scale creating a true harmony.
Shift - Knob 2 selects the amount or harmony interval for the Harmony Pitch Shifter. Interval
choices include:
