I was jamming yesterday, using a 2-amp modeler setup: RP355 for the main tones, and RP255 for global effects on top of that. I liked what I heard, so I recorded a couple of riffs. Here they are.

RP355 with Matchless amp model and autowah, RP255 with low octave.
RP355 with Matchless amp model and autowah, RP255 with chorus. This one has a definite Hendrix vib to it.

The cool thing about using two amp modelers in series is that you can put more FX in the chain than you can with a single amp modeler. An autowah by itself sounds pretty cool; follow it with a chorus or an octave doubler and it’s even cooler. The expression pedal on the RP lets you bring FX in and out under foot control, which is even cooler–you can keep changing the flava as you go along. You can hear me doing a lot of that on the first piece–the one where the RP255 is doing a low octave double.

I’ll post more of these.
