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.

Endless Possibilities!!

What is your opinion of this product?
I reviewed so many loop stations before I decided on this one and I am happy that I did. This things is amazing and I discover something new almost everytime I play around with it. Even if you don't have an instrument you can simply plug in a mic and create pretty much anything just using your voice. AMS continues to provide great products available for anyone's budget.

This is an amazing tool!
What is your opinion of this product?
What an awesome looper, it gives you the options you’ve been waiting for. I love the FX and how everything is easy to use. Well worth the money although it’s all plastic so I would buy a case if i had to use it live or take it somewhere. All in all a cool piece of gear.

What is your opinion of this product?
I could spend hours a day on this if I had more time. But every time I DO use it, the time passes so fast I don't even realize. At first it's kind of confusing and made me feel a little bit slow. But I read the instructions and made a sick flow! Now I make beats every they come to mind. And when they don't, I just whip up something on the fly. In all seriousness, totally recommend this product to anyone who's considering it. If you have a natural flow already, this will only make you better.

What is your opinion of this product?
Tried the Boss RC30, Digitech JamMan, but they do not compare to the RC5505. I use it for looping Keyboards, bass guitar and guitar. This is what I've been looking for. Still learning all it can do. Love It!!!!

Excellent looping machine!!!
Your general opinion of this product.
I use a lot of vocals/beat boxes and keyboard and this little device is perfect for blending everything together for a one man band experience. There are still modes that I have not fully taken advantage of so its ranges from easy to difficult depending on what kind of performance you are looking to achieve.
Boss quality! light weight good button pads
Easy to figure difficult to master.navigating between settings and edit functions can be tedious (especially in a live setting) but its basic functions are clear and concise. I can connect keyboard and drum pad (or any instrument) and loop into the tracks. Also makes for a great live sampler.
still trying to figure out output input sound... not as clean. would recommend a small mixer if inputting multiple instruments
good to go ready to loop/record
looks sleak! nice eye candy
had for nearly a year and have not had any issues.
