Great sounding patch! I'm going to try it tonight.

You say at the bottom that you used the headphones jack and audacity to record it? What kind of connection do you need for something like that? I would love to be able to record to my Mac straight from the RP70.

Thanks.

On your mac, I beleive you can record through garage band, otherwise, you can use Audacity (Free) - http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/mac

You will need a 3.5mm miniature jack cable (same connectors as your ipod earphones). You can get these from radioshack for dirt cheap, like $5.00 for a 6ft cable. Plug one end of the cable into the Headphone output of your RP70 and the other into the LINE-IN or MICROPHONE input on your mac. Then all you need to do is set the program to record from whichever input you are using, then click record.

With Audacity, if you want to save your file as an MP3, you will need the LAME MP3 Encoder plug in - http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/faq?s=install&item=lame-mp3

Enjoy recording!

p.s - Other people wishing to record, if you haven't figured it out yet, audio through the headphone out is in full stereo.

I have done vast amounts of reasearch on VH and he doesnt use chorus.Its a detuner.Detuner for Balance type tone is -9 cents left/+9 cents right.5150 and F***. are much heavier detuner.-11/+11 even -12/+12 will work.Delay settings are lifted straight from his rack rig.I have pics,close up.Digital Delay set @ 250ms w/one repeat left and right w/500 ms 2-3 repeats.Reverb is only used on early VH tones.VH I,II,Diver Down,etc.

I am buying an RP350 tomorrow and I would love to have your photos to help me build some Van Halen patches for my new pedal. I am a huge fan of Van Halen and would really appreciate it if you could get me those photos. Email address is posted below

P.S. Your tips on his rig and effects were really helpful. Keep up the great work.

Read the owners manual. It does a great job at teaching you how to edit patches. If you don't have the owners manual, you can download it from the Digitech support site.

Unfortunately, I do not have my PR70 any more to walk you through the steps. I sold it to a friend and bought the RP350 instead. Its a great unit, plus you can edit/upload/download patches from the computer. No more manually adding patches. Plus, you can record out over USB, so it sounds alot better.

Good luck
