A High-Performance, Feature-Laden Stereo Looper Pedal
Enjoy looping two synced stereo tracks and then processing your loops with the power of a multitrack USB recording interface -- all right at your feet. The Boss RC-30 captures signal coming from an instrument or microphone and allows you to loop it back, build on top of your loops, adjust mix volumes, and add effects. Once you've perfected your creations, you can store up to three hours' worth of loops in 99 different memory slots or back up loops on a computer.
Check out our exclusive run-down of the Boss RC-30 Loop Station Twin Pedal:
Easy and Intuitive Looping
Say you just need to loop a guitar riff for a few bars. That's as easy as a couple taps of your feet. For added convenience, you can turn on the RC-30's Auto Recording feature, which automatically starts recording the moment you start playing. And if you need a lead-in, the RC-30's Count-In mode provides a bar of rhythm before you start recording.
Stack Two Stereo Loops
It's just as easy to add a second track to a loop. The RC-30's two stereo tracks are synchronized with one another, and each has independent level and mute controls for mixing. You can undo and redo as you record, so take as long as you want to get the perfect take.
To help you stay in tempo, the RC-30 features ten rhythm patterns you can play along with as you record. This includes Rock, Funk, Pop, and other popular styles and time signatures. You can tap tempo to set the speed and use the Level knob to adjust the volume of the rhythm track.
An Array of Effects
The RC-30 features an impressive sampling of much-loved BOSS effects, including Pitch-Bend, Phaser, Sweep Filter, Delay, and Lo-Fi. Whereas with most other loopers you'd have to add more effects pedals to your set-up, with the RC-30 these effects come on-board.
Internal and External Storage
The RC-30's internal memory allows up to three hours of storage, so long, uninterrupted playing sessions are not a problem. You can store up to 99 different loops in the internal memory. There's also a USB 2.0 port that lets you export loops to a hard drive and import them back later.
Ins and Outs For All Applications
Many musicians will use the RC-30 as part of a guitar effects rack, and its dual 1/4" TRS ins/outs are suited perfectly to that purpose. It also has an XLR input, complete with phantom power, so vocalists and acoustic instrumentalists can use the RC-30. Finally, the RC-30's 1/8" auxiliary input can bring in audio from a laptop, smartphone, or other digital sound device.
A Great Dual Stereo Looper
It won't take long for you see why the RC-30 has earned a reputation for great sound, ease of use, and limitless utility. Its simple looping set-up, variety of processing and recording tools, and deep storage capabilities are the stuff of performers' dreams.
