Product Description

The BOSS RC50 Loop Station, the Ultimate Looper has Arrived!
BOSS is pleased to announce the most feature-laden looper in the company's history. The RC50 is housed in a spacious seven-footswitch floor unit, and allows three stereo loop tracks to be manipulated simultaneously. Each loop track supports multiple overdubs, so phrases can be stacked one by one on each track, resulting in a monstrous layer of looped phrases.

The RC50 speaks sync; For bands that incorporate digital audio tracks, sequences, drum machines, and/or video elements into their live gigs, sync is not a luxury, it's a necessity. For scenarios such as these, the RC50 can be locked to an external MIDI clock source, ensuring that its loop performances are absolutely locked to the rest of the show. Internally, the RC50 offers Loop Quantize for easy loop recording, plus Loop Sync (which enables all phrases to start in sync), and Tempo Sync (which matches the tempo of multiple phrases during playback).

To make recording as fun and inspiring as possible, the RC50 provides a total of 376 play-along Rhythm Guide Patterns using real sampled drums in a wide variety of time signatures. Why record to a stale click track when you can jam with rockin' grooves instead?

The RC50's rear panel is well stocked with connectors, offering a variety of inputs (stereo Inst ins, XLR input with 48V phantom power, mini-jack aux), outputs (1/4-inch stereo, 1/4-inch sub stereo outs, headphone out), and USB for importing WAV files from computers. MIDI in and out jacks are provided, as are 1/4-inch TRS inputs for accommodating an optional Expression pedal and footswitches; up to four footswitches can be used simultaneously.

Guitar, bass, keyboards, vocals - whatever instrument or input device you chose to plug into the RC50, it can record it, loop it, synchronize it, and put it all under a feature-filled, user-friendly control surface.
