Get Up to 3 Hours of Live Looping with Real-Time FX!
Are you serious about looping? You will be once you've gotten your hands and feet on the Boss RC-300 Loop Station Pedal. Offering up to three hours of internal recording, this fantastic looper will have you jamming forever with three synchronized stereo tracks, real-time effects, a master expression pedal, an ultra-wide pedalboard, and much more. The RC-300 will be your go-to looping pedal, no matter what instrument you play; you can create loops by plugging in a guitar, bass, or keyboard, or even connect a microphone to the phantom-powered XLR input and loop with percussion, stringed instruments, your voice -- you name it. Powerful programmable effects like the polyphonic transpose function keep every looping performance interesting and exciting, while USB connectivity makes it easy to back up loops externally, add new loops, or stream audio to a computer. The Boss RC-300 has everything you could want for hours of looping fun.
Check out our exclusive run-down of the Boss RC-300 Loop Station Pedal:
Triple Stereo Loops
This Loop Station gives live musicians control over three simultaneous stereo tracks, each with its own set of dedicated volume knobs and transport-control footswitches. Getting started with the RC-300 is easy and straightforward. When you want to capture a song idea fast, use the Auto Recording feature, which starts recording the moment you begin playing your instrument or as soon as you start a connected audio player. Count-In mode provides a bar of rhythm before recording starts, and the Undo/Redo function lets you edit as you play. For instant jamming, tap in to the RC-300's preloaded audio backing tracks (bass tracks, piano tracks, and more).
Thanks to its extra-wide pedalboard and oversized footswitches, you won't have to tiptoe around the RC-300. It sports an Expression pedal that can be assigned to a variety of parameters, enlarged footswitches for controlling Record/Play and Stop for each track, and a master All Start/Stop footswitch. Three independent faders provide immediate control of each track's output volume. If you need even more to step on, you have the option to connect your own external expression pedals and footswitches.
Loaded with FX
Sixteen onboard effects allow you to process your tracks and external input signals with Transpose, Flanger, Phaser, Modulator, vocal effects, and more. To activate a certain effect, all you have to do is hit a dedicated Loop FX footswitch. And with the expression pedal, you get hands-free control over the effects parameters in real time. Apply the effects to any single track as well as to the entire mix -- it's up to you.
Stay On the Beat with Built-In Rhythms
Better than a click track, the looper pedal has an onboard drum machine, so you can play along with rhythm patterns in the RC-300's sound library as you record. Choose from 83 rhythm types covering a range of genres, including rock, pop, and Latin. You can adjust rhythm volume with the turn of a knob, set the tempo incrementally, or set it via tap tempo. When you save a phrase, the rhythm type and time signature will also be saved. It's no big deal if you get slightly off the beat -- use the Loop Quantize feature to keep your recordings looped in time.
The USB port provides a handy way to back up loops externally, import and export WAV files between your computer and the RC-300, stream audio to a computer, and more. An XLR input complete with phantom power allows singers, percussionists, violinists, beatboxers, or anyone with a miked instrument to perform with the looper pedal. MIDI Sync allows an external device to control the tempo of the RC-300.
