- Out of stock
The Boss RC-30 Loop Station is a feature packed guitar effects pedal offering huge amounts of control over live looping. Ideal for singer-songwriters, you can plug a variety of instruments in to the several inputs, including 1/4" jack and XLR, and get creative with the three hours of on-board memory.
Looping with Twin Stereo Tracks
Perfect for live performance, the Boss RC-30 gives you two stereo tracks to work with, letting you create full sounding performances when playing live or even helping you along as a great composition tool. Used by many musicians, from guitarists who combine percussive playing with chords to beat boxers who use the built-in effects section for the creation of new sounds, the Boss RC-30 is a hugely versatile loop station. Several connectivity options mean you connect instruments, microphones or an auxiliary input to the pedal and you can even activate phantom power so you can use condenser microphones that require this feature for correct operation. An on-board mixing section gives you the option to change the level of each stereo looping channel independently while the two pedals give you functionality to stop, start and overdub. Please note that even more functionality is available with the Boss FS6 Footswitch. Loops can be imported directly in to the unit from a computer through use of the USB 2.0 port or can be used in reverse, letting you back up the loops you have created for safe keeping.
On-board Rhythm Section & Built-in Effects
Easily add percussion to your playing and stay in time with the built-in drum loops of the Boss RC-30. Real drum samples have been used to create a variety of loops with different styles and feels for several different genres. You can easily tap the tempo in to the pedal and even set the time signature of the rhythm. As an added bonus, the Boss RC-30 will also save rhythm information to your patches for simple recalling at a later time.
Five different effect types are easily activated using one of the RC30's dual footswitches. Choose from Bend Down, a pitch bend effect that lowers the pitch of your loops; Step Phaser, an effective phasing effect that alters your sound in increments; Sweep Filter which uses your current tempo to create a sweeping sound in time with what you're playing; Tempo Delay, which also uses your tempo but this time to create a delay; and finally Lo-Fi, perfect for stripping back your sound to create distinctive and dynamic song sections.
