"Good Looper."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've been playing guitar for quarter of the century but never owned a looper before, big mistake on my part, so when i decided to get one i did an extencive research, Dito was always at the top of a list, but i am an old timer and i started with Boss pedals just looking at one makes me feel like a teenager again, i also wanted something very simple and easy to use, the RC 3 looked like an obvious choice for just a little more cash, but who really needs 99 presets 3 hours of looping and cheesy drum beats with tiny little buttons to push to complicate things, no not me, one thing that attracted me in RC1 was a loop indicator, in fact i can't believe this is the only pedal that has one, seems like such an essential part of the pedal, i use the visual cue 100 precent of a time and can't imagine not having it in the looper, it shows you exactly where you are in the loop such an awesome idea and it looks great visually as well, however there is one flaw with the device, when you erase the loop by pressing down and holding for 2 seconds, you also get 2 seconds play back of the loop before its gone, thats not much of a problem for home use, but essentially renders the device unusable in the live situation, also from the online forums i have learned that the external foot switch cures that problem, i am yet to test it since i don't have one, however in my opinion such an omission should have never happened on the part of Roland, other than that after a few read more days of having the pedal i would still highly recommend one even if you need to get an external switch, there is just nothing else on the market with visual loop progression , also the audio comes out in CD quality i beleive no matter how many layers you create they are all perfectly balanced and sound like a professional sound engineer mixed them up.
