This looks COOL! I've had a GNX3000 for a year now, but never messed with the patches because I never felt motivated to muck with the controls or boot into Windows to run X-Edit...Crap. Now that I look closer at the page it says it only supports RP250 and RP500. Oh well...

What is the good or special of an digitech pedal? For what type of music are they?

AudioDNA2 which is pretty good DSP.

Check some demos on youtube, for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYgQgFyIRV8

Also, there's Sound Community where users share their patches (gdigi can apply those patches to device)

Pretty much anything. The GNX3000 includes a bank of presets which is basically emulations of various guitarists (not exactly spot on, but some are pretty close), another bank of presets which covers various amp types and a third, user configurable bank. One of the unique qualities is that you can blend different types of amplifier to create different sounds. I really wish these were out years ago when I had more time and was more serious about playing.

Check out http://www.guitarworkstation.com/forum. Some folks post recordings of their patches.

To be honest, I got sick of all those sounds most of the time. You know the situation when you are in a big guitar shop and everyone is making 'popular' riffs, with all those different (something cheapo fake) sounds...
I never go to an guitar shop again!! ;)

Maybe I prefer 'original' sounds made by AMS and stuff even more :)

Am I right that digitech is focusing on metal sounds?

Don't get me wrong, I like this is available for Linux, very good job!!! :)

@desowin, what is your connection to digitech?

There are some "metal" patches (and "cheapo fake" ones), but I wouldn't charactize their products as being focused on metal. I usually spend more time in the patches with less effects simply because the cabinet sounds are so realistic.

customer,
I once had RP200, but sold it and bought RP250 (the difference between the two is HUGE)
Also, there's this "donate" button on gdigi website for a reason

ok, cool.

A lot of people use those line6 stuff, but that doesn't work very well on Linux isn't it? Would be good if those are better supported on Linux...

line6 don't work on linux? Good to know that but I thought this was the linux support for it:
http://www.tanzband-scream.at/line6/
They maybe issues with Deb distros but apparently it works fine with my distro Arch from what I've heard.

Do you guys know of any hardware ampsim that allows you to bypass it's speaking emulator?
I like using guitar amp/cab Impulse Response files instead. They sound better from my experience with my like peavey rage.
I've notice now that all practise amps comes with a cab sim line out instead of a preamp or regular line out.
Can anyone help?

The Digitech allows you to turn off speaker compensation for your various outputs, if that's what you're asking. It's designed to be used with a real guitar amp (w/o SC) or directly into a mixing board/PA/whatever (w/ SC).

perfect... I noticed that while checking the Jimi Hendrix pedal.
That's what I'm looking for.
Any of these devices tube powered?
