  • 99 phrase memories, each containing five phrase tracks, custom effects/playback settings, and more
  • 85 onboard rhythm patterns, including odd-measure beats

Five Stereo Tracks with Dedicated Controls
The RC505 features five stereo phrase tracks that can play simultaneously, the most yet in a Boss Loop Station. Independent record/overdub/play and stop buttons for each track let you capture and control loop performances with your fingertips, and dedicated volume faders allow you to mix loop levels on the fly. Each track can have its own playback mode (multi, single, one-shot, reverse, etc.) and tempo sync settings, providing an unlimited range of creative looping behaviors.

Powerful FX Onboard
With the large selection of built-in effects, it's easy to enhance your sounds as you perform. INPUT FX such as ROBOT and VOCODER create unique, dramatic sound textures for recording loops, while TRACK FX like VINYL FLICK and BEAT REPEAT provide dynamic DJ and sampler effects for real-time processing of phrase playback. Six dedicated buttons-three each for INPUT FX and TRACK FX-can be loaded with your favorite effects, giving you one-touch on/off access while looping. In addition, effects parameters (filter cutoff, effect depth, etc.) can be tweaked in real time with the INPUT FX and TRACK FX knobs. Global compressor and reverb effects are also available for processing the overall sound output.

Phrase Memories and Rhythms
99 phrase memories provide onboard storage for phrase track data, various playback and effects settings, and more. A combination of frequently used settings can be saved as a User Set, which you can easily load to quickly reconfigure any phrase memory, even in the heat of performing. 85 different onboard rhythms offer backing for loop recording, with a large selection of odd-measure beats for advanced looping. The rhythm part can be routed to the rear-panel PHONES jack only, giving you a dedicated click track for monitoring purposes.

Audio Inputs and USB
The RC505 is outfitted with a number of simultaneous inputs, allowing you to capture and mix a variety of different audio sources as you build loops. There's an XLR microphone jack with phantom power, mono/stereo A 1/4 inch inputs for guitars, synths, or other instruments, and an AUX mini-jack for connecting a music player, smart phone, or other stereo devices.

Incredible Tool for Building Songs for Recorded or Live Performance
What is your opinion of this product?
I guess the title says it all. This is an inspiring piece of music equipment. It makes the task of building ideas so much easier and quicker. Building loops is easy, and so is storing them. The sound is great, and I love many of the effects, and the beats are great too.

Guitarists please don't overlook this looper.
What is your opinion of this product?
I thought this was NOT the looper for me since I am a guitarist so I went with the RC300....that was the wrong choice. I exchanged it for the RC505 and am not looking back. The RC300 is like a tank and good for the road and gigging but if you are a studio artist like me you should get the RC505. You won't be sorry. Five tracks makes a huge difference. Also you can use an FS-6 footswitch to allow engaging the device by foot. I have been doing fine without it though....awesome!
