Description

The RC-3 is powerfully equipped yet conveniently housed in a compact pedal.

The RC-3 provides three hours of stereo recording capacity direct to internal memory which will enable you to record long phrases without worrying about running out of memory. Along with the incredible memory of the RC-3, the 99 memory locations that will allow you to save and instantly recall your creations.

Those who want to incorporate stereo instruments and devices will appreciate the true stereo I/O of the RC-3. The built-in drum patterns will guide you to perfect looping. And once you’ve created a body of work, you can use the RC-3’s USB 2.0 port to conveniently save your loops onto your computer. Looping has never been this simple, portable, powerful, and fun!

Auto Record
The Auto Recording feature starts recording the moment you begin playing your guitar, or as soon as you start a connected audio player. Count-In mode gives you one-bar of rhythm before recording starts. You can Undo/Redo as you go. The sky’s the limit with three hours of recording time!

Rhythm Guide
To keep your loops tight and in time, you can play along with one of the basic rhythm patterns in the RC-3’s onboard library as you record. Ten types of rhythm types are provided, including Rock, Pop, Funk, Shuffle, R&B, and Latin. A dedicated knob lets you adjust the volume of the rhythm, and you can set the tempo via tap tempo. You can also specify the time signature. When you save a phrase, the rhythm type and time signature will also be saved.

USB Connectivity
You can connect the RC-3 to your computer via a standard USB cable, and back up your RC-3 recordings to your computer for safekeeping. You can also load WAV files from your computer directly into the RC-3. The RC-3 accepts 16-bit/44.1kHz WAV files of up to 1.7GB in size.

AUX Input
In addition to recording your guitar or bass performances and turning them into playable loops, you can also record other external stereo audio sources via the RC-3’s AUX IN. Sound from a digital-audio player connected to the AUX input, for example, can easily be recorded and made into a loop.

I am having a lot of fun with this pedal. Seems pretty sturdy. No problems so far!

What else needs to be said? If you are a performing solo artist this pedal will act as your other band mates. If you are writing music and are trying to come up with that sick guitar harmony but don't have another guitar player? Bam!!! Now you do. There is no limit to what you can do with this pedal and I'm talking first hand experience. Double rhythm tracks, leads, harmonies, loop drum beats, beat boxing, sound effects, samples etc.... This is the Swiss army knife of pedals that should be in every musician's tool chest. It is in mine.

Looping fun

5

Boss has been making quality effects for quite awhile now and has continued this tradition in it's newest RC3 loop station. This loop pedal allows for a total of 6 hours of recording time. If that's not monstrous enough, the pedal can be hooked up to your computer via usb to offload the memory for storage for later use. With that in mind, the RC3 can be used for on the spot recording and then send the WAV file to your computer for mixing. The compact, rugged design should put up with years of use without breaking down. Built in rhythm tracks are great to ensure that you play in time so that your loop tracks line up. Looping isn't just for a one man band. This is a great pedal for practice in that you can record a chord progression and practice soloing over the loop. The RC3 is a powerful pedal to have in your arsenal and will provide countless hours of fun. This is a real hands on product review from Max @ Sam Ash Lombard

Time to loop!

The outside construction of this pedal is very durable. I have seen many guitar players use this loop station on stage. With the three hours of recording your music, this pedal is also a great practice tool when you want to lay down the perfect guitar solo. The rhythm types that are provided in this pedal is also useful in helping you to create new songs. For $199.00 you do get a lot for this price. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash.

Great Pedal

5

This thing is amazing. You can use it for a lot more than just laying down a rhythm and soloing over it, which is handy, but you can also store backing tracks and other sounds in it and trigger them right from your pedal board. There are a lot of other looper pedals on the market that are similar in size or smaller, but none of them have this many features. Besides, have you ever seen a broken Boss pedal? I haven't.

THE Original Loop Station!

Musicians looking for the best loop station should look no further than the BOSS RC3! This little pedal packs a whopping 3 hours of looping time across 99 banks. You can loop until your heart's content. And the best thing-it's not just for guitarists! You can plug keyboards, drum machines, even a microphone (using an impedance transformer) into this little guy. It's built with the ruggedness one would expect from a BOSS Pedal and it has the sound quality one would expect from a BOSS Pedal. My only qualm is that it can be difficult to operate without first taking a look at the reference manual. Aside from that, there's really no other name than BOSS that comes to mind when someone asks for a solid loop pedal. This is a real hands on product review from Ryan@ Sam Ash King of Prussia.
