Gradually increase the RP200 Artists Master Level to achieve the desired volume.

About the RP200 Artist

The Presets Presets are named and numbered locations of programmed sounds which reside in the RP200 Artist. Presets are recalled with the Footswitches. The active effects in each Preset will be indicated by the lighted LEDs in the Effect Matrix. The RP200 Artist comes with 40 User Presets (Presets 1-40), 40 Factory Artist Presets (Presets 41-80), and 40 DigiTech factory presets (81120). The User Presets are locations where your creations may be stored. The Factory Artist and Factory Presets will not allow you to store any changes to them. The 40 User Presets are exact duplicates of the 40 Factory Artist Presets. This allows you to create your own Presets without the worry of losing the sounds that came with the RP200 Artist. Performance Mode When you first apply power to the RP200 Artist, it will power up in Performance mode. Performance mode provides access to all of the Presets within the RP200 Artist via the Up and Down Footswitches.The Parameter 1 (left) knob will adjust the Amp Type, the Parameter 2 (middle) knob will select the Amp Gain (distortion), and the Parameter 3 (right) knob will adjust the Master Level (volume). Bypass Mode The RP200 Artist Presets can be bypassed for a clean, unprocessed guitar tone.To bypass the RP200 Artist, press both Footswitches simultaneously.The Display will read Bypass indicating the Preset is bypassed. Pressing either Footswitch will exit Bypass and return the RP200 Artist to the last Preset used.
Tuner Mode The Tuner in the RP200 Artist allows you to quickly tune or check the tuning on your guitar. Enter Tuner mode by pressing and holding both Footswitches simultaneously.The Display will briefly show TUNER 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 4 Red LEDs indicate the note is sharp and should be tuned down.The bottom 4 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.The Expression Pedal will control the guitar volume while tuning. 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 A=440). Rotating the Parameter 1 knob will select alternate dropped tunings. Alternate tunings are A = Ab , A = G, and A = Gb. The display window will briefly flash the current tuning reference.

Editing/Creating Presets

Creating your own signature sound with the RP200 Artist is easy and intuitive.The RP200 Artist lets you create your own Presets, or fine tune existing Presets to suit your needs. When creating or editing a sound, you must first start with one of the User or Factory Presets. It is not possible to start with a completely empty Preset.The Preset number does not necessarily need to be the location which you intend to have it reside, as you can save your creation to any User Preset location during the store process. To edit or create a Preset: 1. Use the Footswitches to select a Preset which will be your starting point. 2. Once you have found a Preset that you wish to edit, press the Select button once.This will take you into the Editing mode. 3. Use the Select button in conjunction with the Matrix to choose the effect you wish to edit. 4. Use the 3 Parameter Knobs to change parameter values to achieve the desired sound.

The Matrix

The Matrix is where all Effects and Parameters are selected for editing. In Edit mode, successive presses of the Select button will advance to the next Effect row.The LED will light indicating which Effect group has been selected. Each Effect group will have up to 3 Parameters which can be modified.The Knob under each column of Parameters is used to change the value for the corresponding Parameter of the selected Effect. As a Knob is rotated, the Parameter name and value or status will be shown in the Display.
When the stored value of a Parameter is changed, the Store LED will light indicating that you need to store the changes. Changing Presets, or turning the power off before storing any changes will erase any changes made and the RP200 Artist will revert to the stored values for the Preset.
Storing/Copying/Naming a Preset
Once the Preset has been modified to your liking, you may store your settings to any of the 40 User Preset locations (Presets 1-40). The following steps outline the procedure for storing changes to a Preset or copying a Preset to a different location: 1. Press the Store button once.The Store button LED will blink and the first character in the Display will Flash indicating that you can now name your custom creation. 2. Use the Parameter 1 Knob to select the alpha-numeric character and the Parameter 2 Knob to select the next character location
3. Once the desired name is shown in the display, press the Store button again to enter the second stage of the storing process. 4. Select the User Preset location your new sound will reside in using the up and down Footswitches.The display will alternate between showing the Preset name and user preset number about to be overwritten.
5. Press the Store button again to save the changes. The procedure for copying one Preset to another Preset location is the same. Use the Footswitches to select the Preset that you want to copy, then follow the steps 1-4 for storing a preset on the previous page. Press the Select button at any time to abort the Store procedure.

About the Effects

The RP200 Artist can be thought of as several different virtual amplifiers and individual, hi-tech stomp boxes in a single programmable package.With stomp boxes, the order in which they are connected can drastically affect the overall sound quality.The RP200 Artist has placed the Effects in an order for optimum sound quality.The following diagram shows the order of the effects contained in the RP200 Artist.

Effect Definitions

Each Effect within the RP200 Artist can be programmed to suit your personal tastes and application. Understanding how these Effects will alter the sound, and how each Parameter will alter the Effect will help you achieve the sound you are looking for.The following overview of the RP200 Artists Effects outlines what each Effect and Parameter does.


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 allows you to have the best of both worlds without having to change guitars during a performance. Wah is an effect controlled by an Expression Pedal making the guitar sound as if its saying Wah. Pickup Type - The Parameter 1 knob selects the Pick Up type which will be simulated.Values include: PCk Of (Turns the Pickup Simulator off), SC>HUM (Gives a single coil pick up the warm tone of a humbucker), and HUM>SC (Gives a humbucker the unique sound of a single coil). Wah Type - The Parameter 2 knob selects the Wah Type.Values include: WaH Of (Turns the Wah Effect off), CRY (Cry Wah is a traditional sounding Wah), BOUTIQ (Boutique Wah is a wide sweeping Wah with a more modern sound) and FULRNG (Full Range Wah sweeps the entire spectrum of audible frequencies). Wah Position - The Parameter 3 knob adjusts the Wah Pedal Position. Ranges from 1 (toe up) to 99 (toe down).


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 Type - The Parameter 1 Adjusts the length of time it takes for the Compressor to respond to a signal exceeding the boundary. Values include: Cmp Of (Turns the Compressor off) to fast, meDIUM, and slOw.
Amount - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the Amount of Compression (ratio and sustain) and ranges from 1 (slight compression) through 20 (maximum sustain). Gain - The Parameter 3 knob adjusts the Output Gain from the Compressor. Ranges from 0 to 6.

These settings will automatically ramp up the volume from a 200 milliseconds volume fade in to a 2 second volume fade in). Gate Thresh - The Parameter 3 knob sets the signal strength (Threshold) required to open or close the Noise Gate.The Gate Threshold parameter ranges from 1 (opens easily) to 40 (requiring strong signals to open).


The Effects row in the RP200 Artist is a multi-function module, allowing you to select effects such as; Chorus, Flanger, Phaser,Tremolo, Panner,Vibrato, Rotary Speaker,YaYa, AutoYa, SynthTalk, Envelope Filter (auto wah), Detune, Pitch Shift, and Whammy effects. When the Effects row is selected, the Parameter 1 knob is used to choose the type of Effect or turn the Effect module off (eff Of). Only one of the effects in this row can be used at a time. After selecting the type of effect in this module, the Parameter 2 and Parameter 3 knobs can then be used to adjust the individual parameters associated with the selected effect.The following list describes each Effect and their Parameters in more detail: Chorus (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. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob simultaneously adjusts the rate (Speed) and intensity (Depth) of the modulation. Ranges from 1 to 99. Level - The Parameter 3 knob controls the mix level of the Effect. Ranges from 0 to 99. Flange (FLaNge) 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. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob simultaneously adjusts the rate (Speed) and intensity (Depth) of the Effect. Ranges from 1 to 99. Level - The Parameter 3 knob controls the mix level of the Effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Phaser (PHaseR) A phaser splits the incoming signal, and then changes the phasing of the signal.This signal is then taken in and out of phase and mixed back in with the original signal. As the phasing changes, different frequencies get canceled resulting in a warm sort of twisting sound. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob simultaneously adjusts the rate (Speed) and intensity (Depth) of the Effect. Ranges from 1 to 99. Level - The Parameter 3 knob controls the mix level of the Effect. Ranges from 0 to 99. Tremolo (TREMLO) A Tremolo effect modulates the volume of the signal at an even rate. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the rate (Speed) at which the volume modulates. Ranges from 1 to 99. Level - The Parameter 3 knob adjusts the intensity (Depth) of the modulating volume. Ranges from 0 to 99. Panner (PANNER) An Auto Panner modulates the sound from left to right at an even rate. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the rate (Speed) at which the signal pans from side to side. Ranges from 1 to 99. Level - The Parameter 3 knob adjusts the intensity (Depth) of the changing pan. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Vibrato (viBRTO) A Vibrato effect modulates the pitch of the incoming signal at an even rate. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the rate (Speed) at which the pitch modulates. Ranges from 1 to 99. Level - The Parameter 3 knob adjusts the intensity (Depth) of the modulating pitch. Ranges from 0 to 99. Rotary Speaker (ROTARY) 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, as well as a slight pitch change due to speed of the sound coming towards, and then going away from the listener. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the rate (Speed) of the spinning speakers. Ranges from 1 to 99. Level - The Parameter 3 knob controls the mix level of the Effect. Ranges from 0 to 99. YaYa (yaya) The YaYa is another effect exclusive to DigiTech products. Like the AutoYa, it combines the characteristics of a wah and a flanger together providing a unique talk box type of effect, but is controlled by the Expression Pedal. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the intensity of the YaYa effect. Ranges from 1 to 99. Level - The Parameter 3 knob adjusts the throaty quality of the YaYa effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.

AutoYa (AUTOYA) 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. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the rate (Speed) of the sweep. Ranges from 1 to 99. Level - The Parameter 3 knob controls the mix level of the AutoYa. Ranges from 0 to 99. SynthTalk (syNtLK) SynthTalk is another effect exclusive to DigiTech. It makes your guitar seem to be speaking based upon the attack or how hard you strike the strings. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob selects one of the ten different synth voices. Ranges from vOx 1 to vOx 10. Level - The Parameter 3 knob adjusts the sensitivity or the input signal required to trigger the SynthTalk effect. Ranges from 0 to 99. Envelope Filter (eNvlOp) The Envelope Filter is a dynamic Wah effect that alters your sound based upon how hard you play. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the sensitivity or the input signal required to trigger the Wah effect. Ranges from 1 to 99. Level - The Parameter 3 knob controls the mix of the Envelope effect. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Detune (DetUNe) A Detuner will make a copy of your incoming signal, take the copied signal slightly out of tune from the original, and mix the two signals together.The result is a doubling type of effect as if two guitars were playing the same part together. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the amount of pitch difference applied to the copied signal. Ranges from -12 to 12. Level - The Parameter 3 knob controls the mix of the detuned note. Ranges from 0 to 99. Pitch Shift (PitCH) 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. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob selects the interval of the shifted pitch. Ranges from -12 (12 semitones below) to 24 (24 semitones above). Level - The Parameter 3 knob controls the mix level of the shifted pitch. Ranges from 0 to 99. Whammy (wHammy) Whammy 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 will bend either up or down.When Whammy is selected, it is automatically placed before the Amp Modeling as shown in the block diagram. Amount - The Parameter 2 knob selects the interval and direction of the pitch bend. Choices are as follow:
Whammy (no Dry Signal) 1OCTUP (1 octave above) 2OCTUP (2 octaves above) 2NDDWN (a second below) REV2ND (a second below reversed pedal action) 4THDWN (a fourth below) 1OCTDN (an octave below) 2OCTDN (2 octaves below) DIVBOM (Dive Bomb)

Harmony Bends (Dry Signal Added) M3>MA3 (a minor third to a Major third) 2NDMA3 (a second above to a Major third above) 3RD4TH (a third above to a fourth above) 4TH5TH (a fourth above to a fifth above) 5THOCT (a fifth above to an octave above) HOCTUP (one octave above) HOCTDN (one octave down)
Level - The Parameter 3 knob adjusts the volume of the Whammy. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Delay is an effect that will record a portion of the incoming signal, and then play it back a short time later.The recording can repeat just once or several times. Type/Level - The Parameter 1 knob selects one of the 3 different types of Delay, as well as the volume level of the Delay.Values include: DLY OF (Turns the Delay Effect off), MONO 1 through MONO 9 (Digital Delays with increasing Level amounts), ANLG 1 through ANLG 9 (Analog Delays with increasing Level amounts), PONG 1 through PONG 9 (Ping Pong Delays with increasing Level amounts). Delay Time - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the amount of Delay time. Ranges from 1 through 99 (10 through 990 ms in 10 ms increments), and 1.0 through 2.0 (1 seconds through 2 seconds in 100 ms increments). Delay Feedback - The Parameter 3 knob adjusts the number of repeats. Ranges from 0 to 99 and R-HOLD (infinite repeat).


Using reverb in recorded program material gives the listener a sense that the material is being performed in an actual room or hall.

Expression Pedal Calibration

Press and hold the Up Footswitch while re-connecting the power. 3. Continue to hold the Up Footswitch until the Display reads TOE DN. 4. Rock the Expression Pedal forward to the toe down position. 5. Press either Footswitch and the Display now shows TOE UP. 6. Rock the Expression Pedal back to the toe up position. 7. Press either Footswitch.The RP200 Artist will return to the last selected Preset and the Expression Pedal is now calibrated. Note: If the Display shows ERROR, an error has occurred and steps 4 through 7 should be repeated.
