The Boss RC20XL allows musicians to create multi-layered performances in real time; onstage or at home.
Loops and riffs can be stacked repeatedly until the 16 minutes of ample recording space is full. Never before has it been so easy to create a massive one-person band sound in real time.
The RC20XL picks up where the popular RC20 leaves off, as it offers more recording time and more features, but at the same affordable price as its predecessor.

The Undo function can be a useful and musical function for erasing your previous phrase and instantly layering a new one. After you have dazzled your crowd, now its time to bring it to an end. The RC20XL offers three stop options for this purpose. When you hit the pedal, you can either immediately
