RP500 Patch Update #1 is Here!

Our first update to the Huntersounds patch set for Digitech RP500 was shipped to all our RP500 licensees today (16 October 2015). This update contains 23 patches, all designed to make full use of the RP500’s array of footswitches to enable a player to easily add or subtract multiple FX from the mix in real time. It’s a live performer’s one-stop solution for a box full of big, colorful sounds coupled with plenty of realtime control. I even included some stuff to help loopers build fat layers of tones from the ground up.

Digitech RP500: uh huh

Digitech RP500: uh huh


I guess my pride is showing, but y’know, I really like the RP500, and I’m delighted to share my latest setups with our licensees. If you’ve previously purchased our patch set for RP500 and have since changed your email address, please send us an email that includes your old and new email addresses, and we’ll make sure you get the update.

Our next step is to set these sounds up for the RP1000, followed by the RP360. Stay tuned.

Scott Albert Johnson’s “Going Somewhere” is a Brand New Rock n’ Roll Trip

Scott Albert Johnson’s new record “Going Somewhere” literally starts with a bang–a big drum groove–that is soon capped with feverish amped harmonica whose lines pay homage to the blues tradition without ever directly invoking it. Throughout this record, on every track of which Johnson sings lead, plays harmonica, and produced or co-produced–he also wrote or co-wrote every track except for covers of Peter Gabriel’s “I Don’t Remember” and Brett Winston’s “Haunt My Dreams”–the songs are memorable, the singing intense, and the harmonica new and powerful, often in surprising ways. It’s a great record if you’re into rock n’ roll; in fact it’s the most daring rock harmonica record since the early 1990s, when Blues Traveler came along to shake everybody up with a completely different take on the instrument.

Adventures with JamSync: It Gets Better

In my latest post I mentioned that Digitech’s JamSync works: I can sync my JamMan Solo XT to my JamMan Express XT, no problem. Now I’ve discovered that it does something I hadn’t expected and that I’ve wanted for a long time.

A Multi-Colored Piece for Harmonica as Organ

I recorded this improvised piece in my home studio last month. I wanted to try something where the structure of the piece is defined as much by changes in tone as by changes in harmony, and it worked nicely in this case.

First Impressions of the JamMan Solo XT and JamSync

After two false starts, I finally succeeded in acquiring a working used Digitech JamMan Solo XT looper from Guitar Center. I’ve had it up and running for a few days, and I’m getting used to the differences between the Solo XT and my previously preferred looper, the JamMan Stereo.

Power Adapter Craziness with the Digitech Jamman Solo XT

I wrote a few weeks ago that I was getting set up to test a new looping setup involving a Syncman, a Yamaha drum machine, a Digitech JamMan Solo XT looper, and a JamMan Express XT looper. What travails have ensued since then, you may ask. These.
