Boss RC-2 Loop Station: Station To Station of Loops


Boss Loop Station pedals have become the de facto, go-to standard for guitarists, bassists, keyboardists; any musician looking to jump headlong into the sampling and looping world. Available in three formats, the RC-2 Loop Station might be the smallest of the group, but don't let its diminutive size fool you--this pedal offers a full 16 minutes of mono record time, just like its older brother and sister! If the Boss RC-2 Loop Station's single pedal size just doesn't offer enough flexibility for your playing style, simply connect an external pedal (such as the Boss FS5U) to the External Pedal Input and control your loops and tempo with grace and ease.

The Boss RC-2 Loop Station Has What You Want, The Way You Want It


Accurately punching in and punching out while playing your parts, tap-dancing your other stompboxes, and trying to sing at the same time is no small chore. As usual, Boss thought of everything when designing the Boss RC-2 Loop Station, including a Loop Quantize feature, which locks each of your parts into a perfectly timed grid to sync with the rest of the music around you. And since no one is perfect, Boss also thoughtfully added an Undo/Redo function to the RC-2 Loop Station, in case your last take wasn't so hot. Playing perfectly in time is tough for any musician, so Boss even included Guide-Tone drum patterns for jamming along or use as a coach when setting up your loops before the gig. Alternately, use the AUX input to store your own backing tracks, click track, or favorite drum loops right to the Boss RC-2 Loop Station.

Forget navigating byzantine menu systems and sub-parameters when trying to recall one of your 11 storable phrase patches--the Boss RC-2 Loop Station is no nonsense, putting everything you need right at your fingertips with the super handy Phrase Select knob. Clean, simple, and immediately usable, just like any other Boss pedal.

The Boss RC-2 Loop Station Fits Just Like A Glove


The single-pedal form factor makes the Boss RC-2 Loop Station fit right into just about any pedalboard (including the popular Boss BCB) , nestling high fidelity looping among the rest of your favorite effects. The Boss RC-2 is also a great fit for your wallet, representing the most affordable entry in the Boss Loop Station series. If you've been toying with the idea of live sampling and looping but have found yourself intimidated by confusing feature sets or turned off by lofty price tags, the Boss RC-2 Loop Station has your name on it. Well, you know, not literally... unless your name happens to be Boss. Or Loop Station. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Boss products.

"you have lost your mind if you let this pedal get away"
Sound: the sound is incredible, sound quality matches exactly, it responds without error, the sound is as expressive as you want it to be it doesn't achieve its own sound, it is compatible with anyone's music style, some sounds are always better than others but that is personal preference, it sounds great with other pedals as I own 14 other boss pedals,you can't tell if it's live or the 16 minutes of recording, all boss pedals are being used with it, it is great all on its own Feature: no accessories came with it, looping is its most incredible feature, no least useful features, voice recognition would be a cool feature to have, an FS-5U is useful but not necessary to its functionality, I use all monster cables and only a couple of the roland cables that came with it Ease of Use: very easy to get great sounds if you take the time to read the instruction manual, sound modification is only done with tempos, absolutely sweatless to use with all my other boss pedals, there is definitely a learning curve, if you don't read the manual you will spend forever trying to figure it out, the manual is very clear, its ease of use with my guitars is totally painless Quality: boss pedals are incredible for their wear, I recently upgraded all my pedals and my old pedals from the early 80's, they looked and played as if they were brand new, every pedal I recently purchased were in fine factory condition, boss pedals are totally reliable, I baby my pedals so I won't ever need a back-up, road use depends on if you pack your stuff up or you have a disgruntled roadie, it will last as long as the electronics hold up Value: If you can scrounge up the price you will not be sorry Manufacturer Support: I've e-mailed questions on daisy chaining two bcb-60 boards together wondering if my preconceptions would work as desired and they e-mailed me back within two hours and they were very helpful, I've never had a warranty issue in all the years I've owned any of their pedals, no repairs have ever been needed on any of the pedals I've used from boss The Wow Factor: its appeal is its abilities, 16 minutes of looping is incredible in a single pedal, well color is totally personal it's not like you have a choice it is bright red like it or not but flames sure would be nice, I haven't had the time for years to put into being in a band and being able to jam once again is priceless, my boys and daughter are all just starting to learn to play drums, bass and guitar so it will keep me company for years to come Overall: satisfaction could last decades like my previous pedals, replacement will only be when a better single looper made by boss is available, I only use boss and only use single pedals so there was no other choice for me, it is incredible in its versatility and its ease so it can't help but meet my musical goals, if stolen the thief probably would have any fingers to play guitar with when done so the point is moot, like the most is the ability to jam by myself once again

"This is awesome"
Sound: Very clearly reproduces your instrument. I use this with an acoustic and with and electric. On my strat I found that by overdubbing with a different pickup selected i could much more clearly hear the different overdubs, giving my loops much more character. I havent recorded with it, but I just got home from playing a live show with it, and for just getting it at 9:30 last night, I picked it up pretty well. I use it with a Boss pedal tuner and analog delay. Feature: Just the pedal and a battery. Make this clear - This pedal does EXACTLY what the RC-20XL does EXCEPT reverse. I gave it a 9 because i personally like the reverse effect a lot, but i can get a delay for that. besides, on the RC-20XL you have to reach down and push a button to reverse it. With the external jack on the RC-2, you can actually plug in TWO footswitches, allowing a taptempo/stop pedal (EXACTLY what the right pedal of the RC-20XL does)AND a switch between saved phrases. Ease of Use: I got it at 9:30 last night, played around with it till 11:50, and felt comfortable enough to play an acoustic show with it tonight. Take the time to read the manual and go through their little tutorials and you wont frustrate yourself trying to learn the tap/doubletap/hold controls of the stomp. The drum loops are obviously not like a real drummer, and probably get annoying when played over and over, but for practice theyre perfect for organizing your musical ideas. Quality: Its a metal Boss pedal - it will break you before you break it. Value: I think its an awesome pedal. I'll use it live for acoustic stuff, probably not the drum loops live, though. I think it will be very useful for recording on my computer, and definitely for writing songs. I think its VERY VERY beneficial when a musician can build an entire song on his own creativity instead of that of other musicians (make up all your own parts). Manufacturer Support: Sure? It works great, so i havent used it. I'll probably register it, though. The Wow Factor: It's awesome, it looks cool, sounds great. Just put some time into it and it will do exactly what you want it to. Overall: This is a great pedal, if you want to loop.
Style of Music: Rock, Blues, Acoustic
