    Yes u can. The roland has two channels..clean nd Odrive.so unless od channel is selected it wont add any effects to the o/p.
    So when u cnt the rp250 to it, clean channel shud b selected.

    huh ??!!??

    u mean that....

    i can connet digitech and get digitech sound if the clean channel in roland is on

    and if the effect channel is on in roland then no need for digitech ?

    Rp 350+roland clean =effect of RP+effect of roland.

    If you want purely the sound of the Rp then you should use a flat voiced amp like the stranger. Another option is to use the amp modelling on the Roland and use the processor for effects or vice-versa. But mixing the Amp models on both wont do you any good.

    Technically you dont need a processor if you are using a Roland cube. It has all basic effects that yu would need. But that being said the cube would be hard to use in a live situation. I dont think the cube has a foot switch for changing channels and it definitlu lacks the foot pedal for Wah.

    So if you are just going to be playing in the bed-room(andyou dont need wah) you would need just the roland. If you are planning to play live then i suggest that get the RP(or a much better proc with the extra 6 K) and a stranger(which would be more than enough for practice over drums. ). I am not saying that the roland will sound too bad just that it would be a waste of money.

    now i m confused..
    Plz enlighten me on tat.
    I do agree wit u abt stranger amp..since theres no need of OD when u hav a proc.nd the foot pedal thing.

    ambush _RASTA_man_

    The clean on a roland amp is not the same as the stranger or similar flat voiced amps like your PC speaker or stereosystem. The clean channel is modeled after some low gain amp like the Roland JC or the Fender twin reverb. The modeling means that the amp cut out some frequencies of the audio signal or in other words "colors" the tone. The stranger on the other hand does(or tries) an exact reproduction of the input signal.

    So if you plug in a proc to the stranger it reproduces exactly (or tries to reproduce) with amplification, the processed/"colored" tone coming from the processor without any input form its side.
    A guitar amp on the other hand "colors" the tone form the Proc. This is not necessarily a bad thing(infact that what an amp is supposed to do), But since the both of them (Proc and The Roland) are digital modelers the results may not be very pleasing.

    Another point is that if you set your proc patch/tone with a roland and then plug it into a mixer at a live setup expecting to get the same sound you will be in for a bad experience. Ive known people who do that and the resulting tones are extremely shrieky and high pitched.

    If you are just going to use the amp just for practice and use the processor to the desk in live situation then getting a roland or laney would be a waste of money. You would be much better off with a stranger.

    wat ambush said is right ....its da same problem wid da marshall........processors like digitech RP series and zooms are far better off wid strangers amps dan wid roland, laney or marshall.................unless u wanna go for amps lyk messa or diesel its bttr to go for stranger 80 watt(6.5k) or 100 watt (8k)..........

    I used to play on stranger, n always felt something was missing. Marshall colored me!!

    ^But the settings you now love on your processor may not sound gud when u play live or on different amps... Coz your amp 'colors', others may not...
    So in case u r planning to play onstage, go fr flat amps, exactly as ambush said... He has made evrything very clear, its upto u to decide what to get, based on where u want to play.
