Not only this, but then if I need additional amplification on stage, I can run the stereo XLR outputs that is capturing my ENTIRE tone chain and send it to our mixer. It sounds complicated but its really not. I love that I can go back and forth between my tube amp and modeled amps, the whole time choosing if I want to use the RPs effects or my own. There isn't a product on the market that can do this.
    Actually, the GT10 can do all this, AND it can change channels on your amp with latch switching or MIDI which the RP can not. The tones are obviously subjective to preference, but the GT10 is VERY live rig friendly.

    Except the GT10 doesn't do XLR. Could be critical to split that off for some folks.

    I broke my own rule

    I never used XLR with the my past rig so I forgot that the GT doesn't have it. I did however, use the channel changing feature, and with a 100 watt Stiletto, if you couldn't hear it in the next county you need to get your ears checked

    Now that I have started using the second channel I may have to program up this feature, sure beats carrying around the pedal.

    Yes, it can bypass amp modeling.

    As far as I can see, the GT-10 has no "amp" loop like the RP1000 has?
    One can of course use the "4 cable method".... but -
    The option to place internal/external effects and/or preamps at any point in the chain like the RP1000 is not doable?

    This freedom of placement and option to use/not use your amps preamp must be the main selling point of the RP1000 as far as I can see.

    That beeing said, I'm still unclear on which multifx pedal has the best effects (I don't really need the switching abilities - just the effects:-)

    I've owned both and find both have great effects. I can take one or the other. The GT-10 will give you more options and versatility as a whole, including effect. However, I would not say they are better than the ones on the RP1000. Other feel the opposite and that the Boss ones are better. You will have to try them both and see what you think. Since I don't need amp switching either, I prefer the RP1000 for overall sound. There is no midi, though on it and no XLR's on the GT-10.
    Can't wait to be home with papa.

    Thanks,

    Now that the POD HD series is out, there's another contender to the effects throne.
    I'm torn :-)

    I decided just *now* to splash for a tc electronic Flashback Delay! The MultiFX just will have to wait!
    (I found a Flashback delay used at a great price)
