About the RP355
Stompbox Footswitch Mode
The RP355 includes a very convenient Stompbox Footswitch mode, where the Up, Down, and Amp A-B footswitches function as on/off switches for the Distortion, Chorus/FX and Delay effects. To enable Stompbox Footswitch mode, follow these steps: From the preset display, press the UP and AMP A-B footswitches simultaneously. The display will read STOMP briefly indicating Stompbox footswitch mode has been enabled. The DOWN, UP, and AMP A-B footswitches will now turn Distortion, Chorus/FX, and Delay effects respectively on and off in the current preset. Note: While Stompbox footswitch mode is active, you cannot navigate through the RP355s presets, nor can you change the Amp A/B channels in the current preset. To exit Stompbox footswitch mode and return to Preset footswitch mode, press the UP and AMP A-B footswitches simultaneously again. The display will read PRESET briefly indicating Preset footswitch mode is now active again.
When you first apply power to the RP355, it powers up in Performance mode. Performance mode provides access to all of the presets within the RP355 via the Up and Down Footswitches. The Amp A/B Footswitch toggles between two amp channels for the selected preset. Knob 1 selects a tone from the Tone Library, Knob 2 selects an effects chain from the Effects Library, Knob 3 adjusts the Effects Level, and Knob 4 adjusts the Amp Gain, Knob 5 adjusts the Amp Level, and Knob 6 adjusts the Master Level (volume).
The RP355 presets can be bypassed via a true analog bypass circuit for a clean, unprocessed guitar signal. To bypass the RP355, press the Up and Down Footswitches simultaneously. The Display reads Bypass indicating the preset is bypassed. Press any footswitch to exit Bypass and return the RP355 to the last preset used.
The Tuner in the RP355 allows you to quickly tune or check the tuning on your guitar. Enter Tuner mode by pressing and holding the Up and Down Footswitches simultaneously for 2 seconds. The Display briefly shows 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 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. The Expression Pedal controls the guitar volume while tuning. Exit tuner mode by pressing any Footswitch.
6. Drums The Drums button is used to turn on and off the RP355s built-in drum machine. When the Drums button is turned on, the Drums LED lights and the selected drum pattern plays continuously. Select the Drums row using the Edit buttons and use Knobs 1-4 to change the style, pattern, tempo, and level of the drum machine. See page 26 for more information about the drum machine and a list of patterns. Note: The drum machine cannot be used while the Phrase Looper is active. 7. Store The Store button is used to save your custom edits to the user presets. See page 12 for more information about storing presets. 8. Expression Pedal The Expression Pedal provides real-time control of the RP355s Volume, Wah, or any assigned effect parameter. Almost every parameter is available for Expression Pedal control. The Expression Pedal is equipped with a V-switch that turns the Wah feature on or off when you apply extra pressure to the toe. See page 13 for more information about Wah models; see page 28 to learn about adjusting V-switch sensitivity and calibrating the Expression Pedal; refer to page 32 for a list of parameters you can link to the Expression Pedal. 9. Amp A/B Footswitch This Footswitch switches between two amp channels for the selected preset. The Display will read AmP A when channel A is selected, and AMP B when channel B is selected. Press and hold the Amp A/B and the Up Footswitches simultaneously to access Learn-A-LickTM mode. (See page 27 for more information on Learn-A-LickTM. ) Pressing and holding the Amp A/B footswitch enables and disables the Phrase Looper; see page 26 for more information about using the Phrase Looper. Note: You can apply different EQ models, EQ settings, Amp models and/or Amp settings to each amp channel (Amp A and Amp B). When the EQ or Amp row is selected, press the Amp A/B Footswitch to select a channel. The display will show which channel is selected (Amp A or Amp B).

The RP355 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 doesnt 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 33) based on different musical styles. The Effects Library knob will then let you select from a palette of effects chains (see page 33), from simple delays to full multi-effect signals with modulation, delay and reverb. Use the Effects Level Knob to increase or decrease the overall 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.
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 Effects Level knob
To edit and create a preset: 1. Use the Up and Down Footswitches to select the preset you wish to edit. 2. If you find a preset close to what you want, you can begin editing the effect parameters by pressing the Edit Up/Down buttons and selecting the Effect row you want to edit. 3. 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. 4. Press the Edit Up/Down buttons to begin selecting the individual Effects rows to edit their parameters. 5. To bypass or enable an Effect row, press the Tone Library knob. 6. Use the Knobs 2-6 to modify the effects parameter settings. 7. When editing the Amp Model and EQ rows, use the Amp A/B Footswitch to select between the two amp channels. You can then edit each channels Amp Model, Cabinet Model, Amp Gain, Amp Level, and EQ settings independently. Note: Anytime a stored value within a preset is changed, the Store button LED lights up. This indicates that you need to store the changes. Changing presets, or turning the power off before storing any changes, erases any changes made and the RP355 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 70 User preset locations (presets 1-70). 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 blinks and the first character in the Display flashes, indicating that you can now name your custom creation. 2. Use Knob 1 to select the alpha-numeric character and Knob 2 to select the next character location.
1. Press Store; characters in Display flash individually
2. Use Knobs to name Preset
3. Once the desired name is shown in the display, press the Store button again to enter the second stage of the storing process. The red Display begins to flash. 4. Select the User preset location where your new sound will reside using the Up and Down Footswitches. The displays show the preset name and User preset number about to be overwritten.
3. Press Store again; Preset number flashes
4. Select destination with Footswitches
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 steps 1-4 for storing a preset as described above. Press either Edit button at any time to abort the Store procedure.
About the Models
The RP355 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 RP355 has placed the Amp and Effect models in an order for optimum results. The following diagram shows the order in which they are connected.
Whammy/ Chorus/FX (Pre)
Volume Pedal Pre
Volume Pedal Post
Each Amp and Effect model within the RP355 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 RP355s effects outlines what each effect and parameter does.

The Aux Input allows you to connect an MP3 or CD player to the RP355 and jam with your favorite artists. The signal from your MP3 or CD player is output through the left, right, and headphone outputs of the RP355. To use the Aux Input, connect the headphone output of your MP3 or CD player to the Aux Input on the rear panel of the RP355 using an 1/8" stereo cable, and press play on your MP3 or CD player. Use the playing devices volume control and the RP355s Master Level knob to balance the levels.
The Aux Input is also used for capturing audio using the Learn-A-LickTM feature. See more about using Learn-A-Lick in the next section.
Learn-A-Lick allows you to record a 10 second passage of music and play it back as slow as 1/4 speed with no change in pitch. This is useful for picking out the notes of a fast solo passage. There are 6 functions for Learn-A-Lick including: Stop (Controlled by the Down Footswitch) Rewind (Controlled by the Up Footswitch) Play (Controlled by the Down Footswitch) Record (Controlled by the Amp A/B Footswitch) Playback Speed (Controlled with the Edit buttons) Sampled Phrase Volume (Controlled by the Expression Pedal)
1. Connect your CD or tape player headphone output to the Aux In input jack on the rear panel using an 1/8" stereo plug. Set the level of the CD or MP3 player to a desired listening level. 2. Cue up to the passage you want to record and hit pause on the CD or MP3 player. 3. Press and hold the Up and Amp A/B Footswitches to enter Learn-A-Lick mode. The Display will briefly read: LaLiCk. 4. When the Display reads READY, release the pause button on your playback device and press the Amp A/B (Record) Footswitch. The display will read: RCRDNG and the right two Display digits will provide a time elapsed reference while recording. When recording is completed, the phrase will be set to an auto-loop playback mode indicated by play in the Display. Press stop or pause on the CD or MP3 player. 5. Use the Edit buttons to choose the playback speed. Successive presses of the Edit buttons will advance through all playback speeds down to 1/4th of the original speed. Your speed interval choices include: 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 7/8, and Full. 6. Pressing the Up Footswitch steps back through the loop at 1 second intervals.
7. The Expression Pedal will control output level of the recorded phrase. 8. To stop or restart the playback, press the Down (Stop/Play) Footswitch. 9. To record a new passage, press the Amp A/B (Record) Footswitch again. 10. o exit Learn-A-Lick mode, press and hold the Up and Amp A/B Footswitches simultaneT ously. The Display briefly reads LRNEND. Note: While the Phrase Looper feature is active, the Learn-A-Lick feature is not available.
The Expression Pedal on the RP355 can be linked to control the RP355s Volume, Wah, Whammy,YaYa, or almost any of the RP355s other parameters in real time with your foot. When a parameter has been linked to the Expression Pedal, a minimum (heel) and maximum (toe) value can also be specified. Apply extra pressure to the toe of the Expression Pedal to activate the V-switch, and the Expression Pedal switches between the linked parameter and the Wah. The procedure for linking a parameter to the Expression Pedal is as follows: 1. Press either Edit button until the Expression row has been selected (indicated by the LED lighting on the Expression row). 2.Rotate Knob 1 until EXPPDL appears in the Display. 3. Rotate Knob 2 until the desired parameter to be linked appears in the Display. See page 32 for a complete list of parameters that can be linked to the Expression Pedal. 4. Rotate Knob 3 to select the minimum (heel) value the assigned parameter will reach with the Expression Pedal in the toe up position. 5. Rotate Knob 4 to select the maximum (toe) value the assigned parameter will reach with the Expression Pedal in the toe down position. 6. Store your Expression Pedal assignment to your preset. See page 12 for more information on the storing procedure.
The RP355 includes two assignable low frequency oscillators (LFO 1 and LFO 2) which can be assigned to any of the same parameters available for assignment to the Expression Pedal. A low frequency oscillator will automatically vary the value of the assigned parameter at a steady rate. A minimum and maximum value each LFO will reach may be also be assigned. For instance, if the Amp Gain was assigned to LFO 1, and the minimum value was set at 1 and the maximum value was set at 99, the RP355 would automatically sweep the amount of distortion from a clean sound to a distorted sound. Individual LFO speeds are also available for assignment. In the previous example, the LFO speed would determine the length of time it took the LFO to sweep from the clean to the distorted sound. The procedure for assigning the LFOs in the RP355 is as follows: 1. Press the Edit button until the Expression row has been selected (indicated by the LED lighting on the Expression row). 2.Rotate Knob 1 to select one of the two LFO links, LFO 1 (LFO1) or LFO 2 (LFO2). 3.Rotate Knob 2 to select the parameter you want linked to the LFO 1 or LFO 2. See page 32 for a list of assignable parameters. 4.Rotate Knob 5 to select which waveform you want the LFO to use, Triangle (TRIanG), Sine (SINE), or Square (SQUARE). 5.Rotate Knob 6 to select the speed you want the parameter to be controlled at.
This function resets the RP355 to its original factory settings. This procedure erases all custom User presets, and recalibrates the Expression Pedal. ATTENTION: Performing this function will erase all user-programmed data. All such data will be lost forever! Be sure you want to erase the memory and start fresh before continuing with this procedure. The procedure for performing a Factory Reset is as follows:
1. Press and hold the Store button while powering up the RP355. 2. When the display prompts you with FACRST, release the Store button, which is now flashing. 3. Press and hold the flashing Store button for 3 seconds until RSTORD appears in the display and release. The Restore procedure takes several seconds to complete; during the procedure, the display will count up. After the Restore procedure is complete, the Expression Pedal calibration procedure will begin. See step two of the Expression Pedal Calibration section below.
Expression Pedal Calibration
The Expression Pedal on the RP355 needs to be recalibrated for use after a factory reset has been performed. This calibration procedure is automatically entered after a factory reset procedure. (You can also initiate the calibration procedure by pressing and holding the Up and Down Footswitches for approximately 5 seconds.) In the event the Pedals calibration fails, or if the Pedal does not function properly, it can be re-calibrated using the Pedal Calibration procedure. This will not erase the User presets. The procedure for Calibrating the Expression Pedal is as follows: 1.Press and hold the Up/Down Footswitches until PDLCAL appears in the display (BYPASS, TUNER, and Exit will be displayed before PDLCAL is accessed, after about 5 seconds.) 2. When the Display prompts you with TOE DN, rock the Expression Pedal forward (toe down) and press either the Up or Down Footswitch. 3. When the Display prompts you with TOE UP, rock the Expression Pedal back (toe up) and press either the Up or Down Footswitch. 4. The Display now prompts you to calibrate the V-Switch sensitivity (VSwxxx), where XXX is the current V-Switch threshold. Rock the Expression Pedal forward and press firmly on the toe once to turn the V-Switch on (wah ON), and again to turn the V-Switch off (wahOFF). 5. If the V-Switch is too sensitive, press the right Up Footswitch to raise the threshold (range is 0-200). Keep testing the V-Switch sensitivity and adjust the threshold until it only engages when you want it to (too sensitive a setting will lead to the V-Switch falsely triggering on or off when using the Expression Pedal). 6. When the V-Switch sensitivity is set to your satisfaction, press both Up/Down Footswitches simultaneously to exit. Note: If the Display shows error, an error has occurred and steps 2 through 5 should be repeated.
