View Full Version : GSP-1101 vs. RP-1000

I am considering switching form my tonelab to a new mfx.
I really like the tone on the tonelab, but am considering a swap to
a newer digitech unit. Has anyone here A-B'ed the 1101 and the RP-1000?
The sample patches on Digitech's site, make the GSP-1101 sound much better.
Does anyone know if the difference is this drastic, or whether they sound a lot closer tone-wise? K.P. have you heard both of these?
If not, can you give an opinion the RP-1000 to the Tonelab??

I know that you got an RP-1000, and got rid of the Tonelab...
I had a GNX-3000 with supermodels, and thought the Tonelab was
a lot better, although less flexible. To me, the presets on their site for the RP have a similar quality to the GNX tone, and the GSP-1101 presets a step above.
A question that might add relevance, do you use the Harmonic Converger with the RP-1000? That might get rid of the sort of "buziness" that I hear in the RP-1000 presets.

I sold the ToneLab last year, so it's been awhile since I've used it or heard. However, I'm pretty sure the RP1000 sounds better, both the amp models and the FX. One gnawing dissatisfaction I had with the ToneLab was getting a very good clean Fendery tone. Last night, the RP1000 did the Bassman very well, IMHO.

Here is a review of a GNX3000 with the HC. It might give you sone insight of as to the DigiTech tone interaction with this device.
