About the RP90
When you first apply power to the RP90, it powers up in Performance mode. Performance mode provides access to all of the presets within the RP90 via the Up and Down Footswitches. The Edit Up/Down buttons cycle through the effects in the matrix.
When you select an Effect with the Edit Up/Down buttons, you can adjust the Effect with the Value Up/Down buttons. (For descriptions of the Effects and their parameters, see page 20.) When you make changes to a presets Effects, you must store the changes or they will be lost when you select a different preset or disconnect power to the RP90. See page 18 for a description of the Store procedure.
The RP90 presets can be bypassed for a clean, unprocessed guitar signal. To bypass the RP90, press and release both Footswitches simultaneously. The Display reads By indicating the preset is bypassed. In Bypass mode, all buttons are disabled. Press either Footswitch to exit Bypass mode and return the RP90 to the last preset used.
The Tuner in the RP90 allows you to quickly tune or check the tuning on your guitar. Enter Tuner mode by pressing and holding both Footswitches simultaneously. The Display briefly shows tu 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 left 6 red LEDs indicate the note is flat and should be tuned up. The right 6 red LEDs indicate the note is sharp and should be tuned down. The center LED indicates the note is in tune. The output is muted in Tuner mode; rock the Expression Pedal to regain volume.
Center LED indicates note is in tune Display shows note played
Left LEDs indicate note is flat
Right LEDs indicate note is sharp
In Tuner mode, you can change your tuning reference with the Vallue Up/Down buttons. The default factory setting is A=440 Hz (displayed as 40). Other tuning references are A=A flat (displayed as Ab), A=G (displayed as G), and A=G flat (displayed as gb). The display window will briefly flash the currently selected tuning preference. Exit Tuner mode by pressing either Footswitch.
Tone Library Button
You can press this button at any time (except in Bypass or Tuner mode) to access the Tone Library, and then use the Value Up/Down buttons to select from a variety of genre-based amp tone defaults ranging from Blues to Metal to Country. Behind the scenes, the Compressor, Distortion, Pickup/Wah effects, Amp/Cabinet model, and EQ are configured to create a specified tone. You can further refine the sound by editing the preset (see Editing/Creating Presets on page 17). Changing between different Tone Library defaults does not change the Chorus/FX, Delay or Reverb, letting you experiment with different amp styles quickly in the context of the current effect chain.
Effects Library Button
You can press this button at any time (except in Bypass or Tuner mode) to access the Effects Library and then use the Value Up/Down buttons to select from a variety of post-amplifier model effect chains (Chorus, Chorus + Delay, Delay + Reverb, etc.).You can further refine the sound by editing the preset (see Editing/Creating Presets on page 17). Changing between different Effects Library defaults does not change the Compressor, Distortion, Amp/Cabinet model, and EQ settings, letting you experiment with different effect chains quickly in the context of the current amp tone.
Effects Level Button
You can press this button at any time (except in Bypass or Tuner mode) to access the Effects Level. This button changes the relative level of the post-amp effects (Chorus/FX, Delay, and Reverb). This can be thought of as an effects mix control, where increasing this buttons value increases the level of these effects and decreasing its value decreases the level of these effects.
Master Level Button
Press this button and use the Value Up/Down buttons to set the overall output level of the RP90.
1. Access the Tone Library with this button and select a tone with the Value buttons.
2. Access the Effects Library 3. Access the effects level with this button and select with this button and adjust the a tone with the Value buttons. level with the Value buttons.
The Tone Library button, Effects Library button, and Effects Level button make it easy to quickly load preset tones, effects, and effects chains.
To learn about storing changes to presets, see page 18. Presets
Presets are numbered locations of programmed sounds which reside in the RP90. Presets are recalled with the Footswitches. The active effects in each preset are indicated by lighted LEDs in the Effect Matrix. The RP90 comes with 50 User presets (1-50) and 50 Factory presets (51-00). The User presets are locations where your creations may be stored. The Factory presets do not allow you to store any changes to them. From the factory, the 50 User presets are exact duplicates of the 50 Factory presets. This allows you to create your own presets without losing the sounds that came with the RP90.
A Guided Tour of the RP90
These two Footswitches select presets, access the Tuner, or bypass the RP90. The Footswitch on the right will select the next preset up, and the Footswitch on the left will select the next preset down. Pressing both Footswitches together will bypass the currently selected preset. Pressing and holding both Footswitches for 2 seconds will access the Tuner. Press either Footswitch to exit Bypass or Tuner mode.
Tone Library, Effects Library, Effects Level, and Master Level Buttons
At the heart of creating presets in the RP90 are the Tone Library, Effects Library, and Effects Level buttons. By pressing one of these buttons and using the Value Up/Down buttons, you can select from 20 amp/distortion tones, 20 effects chains, or the overall post amp/distortion effects level respectively. The Master Level button accesses the master output volume parameter for the RP90. Each button is described in detail below. Tone Library Button The Tone Library button accesses a library of preset amp tones. Press this button and then use the Value Up/Down buttons to select from a variety of genre-based amp tones ranging from Blues to Metal to Country (see page 38 for a list of available tones). Behind the scenes, the Pickup/Wah, Compressor, Amp/Distortion, and EQ are configured to create a specified tone. You can further refine the sound by editing the preset (see Editing/Copying Presets on page 17). Changing between different Tone Library selections does not change the Chorus/FX, Delay, or Reverb settings, allowing you to experiment with different amp styles quickly in the context of the current effect chain. The Display will read CU (for custom) when any of the associated effects have been changed from a default library setting.
Effects Library Button The Effects Library button accesses a library of preset effect configurations. Press this button and use the Value Up/Down buttons to select a variety of post-amplifier model effect chains (Chorus, Chorus + Delay, Delay + Reverb, etc). You can further refine the sound by editing the preset (see Editing/Copying Presets on page 17). Changing between different Effects Library selections does not change the Pickup/Wah, Compressor, Amp/Distortion and EQ settings, allowing you to experiment with different effect chains quickly in the context of the current amp tone. The Display will read CU (for custom) when any of the associated effects have been changed from a default library setting. Effects Level Button The Effects Level button lets you adjust the levels of post-amp model effects (Chorus/FX, Delay, and Reverb). Press this button and use the Value Up/Down buttons to change the relative level of the post-amp effects (Chorus/FX, Delay, and Reverb). Think of it as an effects mix control where increasing this setting increases the level of these effects, while decreasing this setting decreases the level of these effects. Master Level Button The Master Level button lets you adjust the output level of the RP90. Press this button and use the Value Up/Down buttons to change the output level of the RP90.
The Edit Up/Down buttons select which effect is to be edited. As each effect is selected, the Display shows the effect setting. A decimal in the bottom right corner of the Display turns on when a preset has been modified. The Edit Up/Down buttons are also used to change the RP90 Drum Machine parameters (Note that Drum Machine settings are global for all presets and are not saved with the preset).
Value Up/Down Display
The Value Up/Down buttons are used for editing effects, navigating Tone/Effects Libraries, adjusting Effects and Master Levels, and adjusting Drum Machine settings. The Display provides information for different functions depending on the mode that has been selected. In Performance mode, the Display shows the currently selected preset number. In Edit mode, the Display shows the value of the effect being adjusted. A decimal in the bottom right corner of the Display turns on when a preset has been modified. In Tuner mode, the Display shows the note being played.
The matrix provides information regarding the current preset and Effect edit functions. In Performance mode, the LEDs next to each Effect provide a visual indication of which Effects are in use for the currently selected preset. While editing a preset, the LEDs indicate the Effect currently selected for editing. In Tuner mode, the LEDs indicate whether the note played is sharp, flat, or in tune.
The Drums button is used to turn on and off the RP90s built-in drum machine. When the Drums button is turned on, the Drums button LED lights and the selected drum pattern plays continuously. Use the Value Up/Down buttons to change the pattern of the drum machine. See page 34 for more information about the drum machine.
The Store button is used to save your changes to the User presets. See page 18 for more information about storing presets.
The Expression Pedal provides real-time control of the RP90s Volume, Wah, or the assigned effect parameter.
Input Connect your instrument to this high-impedance TS input. Amp / Mixer This button optimizes the RP90s outputs for use when plugged into a guitar amp or a mixer/recording device. When set to Mixer (In position), the outputs are optimized for connecting to a mixer, recording device or headphones. When set to Amp (Out position), the outputs are optimized for running directly in to the input of a guitar amp. Left (Mono) and Right Outputs Connect the Left (Mono) output to the input of a single amplifier (or mixer input) for mono operation. Connect the Left and Right outputs to the inputs of 2 amplifiers (or 2 mixer channels) for stereo operation.

The RP90 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 buttons. The Tone Library button gives you access to a variety of pre-programmed amp/distortion tones (see page 38) based on different musical styles. The Effects Library button then lets you select from a palette of effects chains (see page 39), from simple delays to full multi-effect signals with modulation, delay and reverb. Use the Effects Level Button to easily increase or decrease the 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 select individual Effects, and the Value Up/Down buttons to adjust their settings. To edit and create a custom preset: 1. 2. 3. Use the Footswitches to select the preset you wish to edit. If you are trying to find something different from the existing presets, begin by using the Tone Library, Effects Library, Effects Level and Value Up/Down buttons to get close to a sound you want. Once you have a sound close to what you are after, begin editing the Effects by pressing the Edit Up/Down buttons and selecting the Effect you want to adjust. To turn an Effect on, select it with the Edit Up/Down buttons. Each Effect has multiple settings to select from. Use the Value Up/Down buttons to change the values for the selected Effect To turn an Effect off, press and hold the Value Down button until Ofappears in the Display. (For EQs, b5, d5, and t5 are the settings with no boost or cut.)
Anytime a stored value within a preset is changed, you need to store the changes (with the Store button), or the changes will be lost. Changing presets, or turning the power off before storing any changes erases any edits made and the RP90 will revert to the stored values for the preset.
Storing/Copying a Preset
Once the preset has been modified to your liking, you may store your settings to any of the 50 User preset locations (presets 1-50). The following steps outline the procedure for storing changes to a preset or copying a preset to a different location: 1. 2. 3. Press the Store button once and the current Preset location will flash in the Display. This is asking you to select a new User Preset location where your new sound will reside. If desired, select a new User Preset location using the Footswitches. Press the Store button again to save the changes.
The procedure for copying one Preset to another Preset location is the same. Simply use the Footswitches to select the Preset that you want to copy, then follow the steps listed above.
1. Press the Store button; the Preset number flashes. 3. Press the Store button again to save your changes.
2. Select a destination with the Footswitches.
About the Models
The RP90 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 RP90 has placed the Amp and Effect models in an order for optimum results. The following diagram shows the order in which they are connected.
Volume Pedal (Pre)
Volume Pedal (Post)
Each Amp and Effect model within the RP90 has multiple settings to select from. Use the Value Up/Down buttons to change the values for the selected Effect. The following overview of the RP90s Effects outlines the settings each Effect contains.
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 gives you 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. See page 32 on how to link the Wah effect to the Expression Pedal. The Pickup/Wah settings are: OF SH HS CB CY Fr Pickup/Wah is turned off. Makes a single coil pickup sound like a humbucker. Makes a humbucker pickup sound like a single coil. Dunlop Cry Baby TM wah model Vox Clyde McCoy TM wah Full range wah
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. The settings for the compressor effect are: OF Compressor is turned off. 1-20 Level of compression and sustain. Ratio is set to infinity:1.
The RP90 has 12 amp and 6 distortion models to choose from. Each model is identified by a single letter and has nine settings (for example, b1 through b9), except Acoustic Guitar Simulator and Direct, which only have one setting. As the setting increases, the amp/distortion gain increases. Each amp model has a cabinet model assigned to it as shown in the following list. OF Amp/Distortion is turned off.

The RP90s EQ helps further shape your tone with Bass, Midrange, and Treble controls. The EQ settings are: b1-b9 d1-d9 t1-t9 Bass tone control. b1-b4 cut bass frequencies by 12dB, 9dB, 6dB, and 3dB respectively. b5 has no boost or cut. b6-b9 boost bass frequencies by 3dB, 6dB, 9dB, and 12dB respectively. Midrange tone control. d1-d4 cut midrange frequencies by 12dB, 9dB, 6dB, and 3dB respectively. d5 has no boost or cut. b6-b9 boost midrange frequencies by 3dB, 6dB, 9dB, and 12dB respectively. Treble tone control. t1-t4 cut treble frequencies by 12dB, 9dB, 6dB, and 3dB respectively. t5 has no boost or cut. t6-t9 boost treble frequencies by 3dB, 6dB, 9dB, and 12dB respectively.
The Noise Gate effect includes two models: a Silencer gate and an Auto Swell gate. A silencer gate is designed to eliminate noise while you are not playing. The Silencer gates nine settings (g1-g9) determine the threshold, which determines how loud a signal must be before it can be heard. The higher the setting, the louder a signal must be in order to be heard. The Auto Swell provides an automatic volume swell effect. The auto swells nine settings (S1-S9) determine the attack time (how quickly the swell grows from the note you play). The higher the setting, the faster the swell grows. The noise gate settings are: OF Noise gate effect is turned off g1-g9 Silencer gate. g1 is the lowest threshold, g9 is the highest threshold. S1-S9 Auto Swell gate. S1 is the fastest attack time, s9 is the slowest attack time.
The Chorus/FX model actually contains twelve different modulation and pitch effects (described on the following pages). Each effect includes nine settings which include a variety of configurations that generally range from more subtle (lower settings) to more extreme (higher settings).The Chorus/FX settings are: OF c1-c9 C1-C9 F1-F9 P1-P9 t1-t9 n1-n9 b1-b9 Chorus/FX effect is turned off Boss CE-2 Chorus Dual Chorus Flanger Phaser Tremolo Panner Vibrato r1-r9 Y1-Y9 A1-A9 S1-S9 E1-E9 d1-d9 h1-h9 H1-H9 Rotary Speaker YaYa AutoYa Step Filter Envelope Filter Detune Pitch Shift DigiTech Whammy
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. The RP90 Chorus effect includes a model based on the classic Boss CE-2 Chorus and the Dual Chorus. Chorus settings are: c1-c9 Boss CE-2 Chorus. C1-C9 Dual Chorus.
Flanger 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. Settings are F1-F9. 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. Settings are P1-P9. Tremolo A Tremolo effect modulates the volume of the signal at an even rate. Settings are t1-t9. Panner A Panner modulates the sound from left to right at an even rate. Settings are n1-n9. Vibrato A Vibrato effect modulates the pitch of the incoming signal at an even rate. Settings are b1-b9. Rotary Speaker 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. This produced a slight pitch change due to the speed of the sound coming towards, and then going away from the listener. Settings are r1-r9.
YaYaTM AutoYa combines the characteristics of a Wah and a Flanger, creating an almost human vowel characteristic as if the guitar were saying Yah. Control the effect with the Expression Pedal. Settings are Y1-Y9. AutoYa Similar to the YaYa effect described above, AutoYa automatically provides this animation to the sound at an even rate. Settings are A1-A9. Step Filter The Step Filter is like an automatic random wah with a square waveform. Settings are S1-S9. Envelope Filter The Envelope Filter is a dynamic Wah effect that alters your sound based upon how hard you play. Settings are E1-E9. Detune A Detuner makes a copy of your incoming signal, takes the copied signal slightly out of tune from the original, then mixes the two signals together. The result is a doubling type of effect as if two guitars were playing the same part together. Settings are d1-d9. Pitch Shift A Pitch Shifter copies the incoming signal, then shifts the pitch of the copy to a different note.
