Pros

Compared to other plastic exterior multi-effects, the RP360 XP feels solid and durable. And this is reflected in many reviews, which mention the pedal's reliability as one of its good traits. Versatility and value for money also came up a number of times, both from pedalboard owners that have downsized, and beginners who are just trying out multi-effects.

Cons

There were a few users who were not satisfied with some of the preset sounds, but that is to be expected since we all have different tastes. There are also some who were not satisfied with the software editor's performance, and cautioned that it takes a bit more time to get familiar with the controls.

Overall

If you're looking for a reliable, versatile and compact multi-effects pedal with modern USB connectivity then check out the DigiTech RP360 XP.

NB: We were recommending this effects unit until we performed a thorough review of the category in November 2018 and at that time we found there were higher rated options to recommend which you can see in our guide to The Best Guitar Multi Effects Pedals / Processors.
