Boss have for a long time championed the use of loopers as an effective way for solo artists to self-accompany by building up layers of music. Loopers have taken off in ways nobody really expected: beatboxers play entire sets using only their RC-30; guitarists build up walls of sound layer by layer; classical musicians harmonise with themselves. There really is no prescribed way to apply a looper to your music, it’s as open a device as your imagination.
Boss were really the first to own the scene with their RC20 and this update gives you everything it had and more! Each memory bank (there are 99) now has two independent tracks for you to fill with loops and A/B with each other using the physical faders on the unit’s control panel. There are now a host of special effects to add to your loops like Step Phaser and Tempo Delay which will help open up and expand your sound.
The same familiar two-footswitch design is used here, making loop creation and layering a simple and hands-free affair. Even doing previous mistakes can be achieved without reaching down to press buttons. There is an inbuilt kick drum rhythm for using either as a guide or as part of your composition. The unit has separate instrument and XLR mic inputs for meeting the needs of various diverse musical approaches.
Looping is great for fun, practice, inspiration and legitimate music creation. Try this out and see where your imagination takes you.
