For those awaiting the arrival of the ultimate looper, your wait is
over! The RC-50 is the most feature-laden Loop Station BOSS has ever
built. With up to 49 minutes mono recording time and the capability to
manipulate three stereo phrase tracks simultaneously, the RC-50 will
put you in loop heaven in no time. Each track supports multiple
overdubs, so phrases can be stacked one by one on each track, resulting
in a monstrous layer of looped phrases.
Create perfectly synced loops live
Ready to blow your audience away? With a single RC-50, a guitarist,
bassist, keyboardist, or vocalist can create a perfectly synced wall of
sound live onstage. There are three simultaneous stereo phrase channels
on the RC-50, each with a dedicated footswitch. Each channel can
contain dozens of loops/phrases that you stack one by one, so you can
imagine how massive your arrangements or solos can become!
Lock up to your MIDI sequences
The RC-50 speaks sync. For bands that incorporate digital audio tracks,
sequences, drum machines, and/or video elements into their live gigs,
sync is not a luxury - it's a necessity. For scenarios such as these,
the RC-50 can be locked to an external MIDI clock source, ensuring that
its loop performances are absolutely locked to the rest of the show.
Internally, the RC-50 offers Loop Quantize for easy loop recording,
plus Loop Sync (which enables all phrases to start in sync), and Tempo
Sync (which matches the tempo of multiple phrases during playback).
Rhythm Guide with real sampled drums
To make recording as fun and inspiring as possible, the RC-50 provides
a total of 379 play-along Rhythm Guide Patterns using real sampled
drums in a wide variety of time signatures. Why record to a stale click
track when you can jam with rockin' grooves instead?

variety of inputs (stereo Inst ins, XLR input with 48V phantom power,
mini-jack aux), outputs (1/4" stereo, 1/4" sub stereo outs, headphone
out), and USB for importing WAV files from computers. MIDI in and out
