The patches for the v16 Huntersounds Digitech RP patchset update are all ready, so it’s time to hear the samples! I played these pieces with a Hohner Marine Band Deluxe in A, into an Audix Fireball V mic, into a Digitech RP255, into a Peavey KB2 keyboard amp. Samples were recorded using a Zoom H4 positioned about a foot in front of the KB2 grill, pointing at the center of the speaker. Samples were normalized to the same volume level, and are otherwise unedited.

Almost every patch from the RP250/255 V16 set is represented here; there are a few more patches in the RP350/355 set yet to be added. Stay tuned for those. The patches sound very much the same on the 250/255/350/355/500, in case you’re wondering, with a few exceptions for FX and amp models that aren’t available on the 250/255/350.

The v14-15 patch sets will be replaced by the v16 set for purchases after Feb. 28, 2013. All current license holders will be shipped a copy of the V16 patch set on that date. When you want to buy the patches that make Digitech RPs make these sounds, check out our store.

And now for the samples… wait! One more thing! I performed these phrases with the Audix Fireball mic. The Fireball is a strong mic that’s more well-mannered than they typical blues rig; bullet-type mics distort the tone a lot more than the Fireball does.
