HAVE YOU EVER DREAMED OF PACKING YOUR pedals onto a rack shelf and controlling them via a custom-switching system--perhaps along with your rack effects and amps--just like many rock stars do? If so, and those dreams have remained unrealized, complexity and cost are likely key factors.

RJM founder Ron Menelli set out to put a user-friendly, professional-quality switching system into the hands guitarists at an affordable price, and the RG-16 ($699 retail/$599 street) does just that. The unit combines eight Audio Loops (four independent, four grouped in series) with eight Function Switches for controlling amps (channel-switching, reverb on/off, effects loops in/out, etc.), and controls everything using an external MIDI controller of your choice. The connection to your amp or amps is made via two 8-pin DIN jacks that work with various cable/connector types to interface with a huge variety of amps including models by Fender, Marshall, Mesa/Boogie, Rivera, Soldano, and VHT and switches may be configured as latching or momentary, with an Inverse option for switches with inverted polarity. There's also a buffer circuit, designed by Rack Systems guru Dave Friedman, that may be inserted anywhere in the signal chain.

These buttons are used in conjunction with a Write button to program the RG-16's presets--a process that couldn't be easier. You just press the buttons corresponding to the loops and switches you want to include in a preset, press Write, and voile! …
