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.
