The Boss RC-300 Loop Station pedal allows vocalists, guitarists, bassists, keyboard players and other musicians to create involved, complex soundscapes by laying down and overdubbing their songs, layering music into bigger tonal possibilities all from one looper.
With a memory that’s capable of holding up to three hours of looping – whether that be in one huge creation or split between easily-saveable songs – which can be saved, recalled, re-edited and embellished via easy-use control knobs, faders and display panels which quickly make clear what each of the footswitches and expression pedal across the wide, uncluttered chassis will trigger.
Once you’ve started to work on your loops, a plethora of BOSS effects can then be added, including transposing options, modulation, bass emulation for guitarists and phaser. Those players who are only just starting to work with loops will be relieved to find a legendary quantise feature, which means that your loops and overdubs will always sound perfectly in time when you drop them in and out.
With facility to connect a mic via XLR and an instrument through a 1/4” input at the same time, any singer songwriter can now bring huge amounts of depth to their sound, and can use the USB interface built in to the Boss RC-300 to move songs back and forth to their computer.
Whether you’re a seasoned looper or a first-timer, this unit has enough easily-edited power to make textured soundscapes a complete doddle.
