Next Level Looping Made Easy
Whether on stage, at home or in the studio, the Boss RC-30 delivers incredibly intuitive looping performance which never gets in the way of your creativity.
A favourite of singer-songwriters, the RC-30 is fully featured but simple to control. Its user-friendly controls allow you to build up complex tracks with ease.
We’ve all been there. You’ve got a great chord progression, and you can hear how the melody would work just right with it. The drum beat would drop in about now, and then the vocals come in over the top. The Boss RC-30 lets you work with your inspiration in real-time.
Dual Tracks for Ultimate Flexibility
Recording and overdubbing loops is simple and intuitive thanks to the twin pedal design, you can even build totally separate sections like verses and choruses on individual tracks and control playback on the fly. With three hours internal recording time on tap, and the ability to back-up loops to your PC via USB you’ll never lose that moment of inspiration.
Boss have designed the RC-30 for live performance, and you can be sure that your loops will always be tight and in time thanks to the auto-record feature which starts recording the moment you start playing, letting you concentrate on your music rather than your footwork. You can store loops to 99 memory slots for easy recall during performances.
Getting your loops to sound great is all about timing, with the RC-30 you can play along to 10 different types of on-board real drum rhythm patterns ranging from Rock to Latin, with full control over volume, tempo, and time signatures.
Transform Your Sound
Adding effects to your loops is super easy with the RC-30. Turn your loops into unique soundscapes without the need for complex pedal chains and extra units using the RC-30’s selection of legendary BOSS effects including delay, phaser, and pitch bends.
Unlock Your Potential
You don’t have to be a guitar player to get the best out of the RC-30. Connect a mic to the dedicated XLR input to record vocal loops or sample sounds from anywhere. Selectable phantom power means you can use anything from a basic dynamic microphone to a studio quality condenser. You can even load in backing tracks as .wav files or connect an audio player to the aux input to add more sounds to your loops.
Take it to the Streets
You can be confident that the RC-30 will survive a life on the road. All BOSS pedals are legendary for their bulletproof build quality, and the RC-30 is no exception. A rugged build and the ability to run off battery power makes the RC-30 the ideal unit to transform busking sets and take street performance to a whole new level.
