When inspiration strikes, you can count on BOSS's RC-5 Loop Station to capture those fleeting moments of musical creativity. Loops and overdubs are recorded in flawless 32-bit depth to preserve the full dynamics of your performance without the presence of additional noise or overloading. Whether you're using the RC-5's 99 Phrase Memories to generate playback material on the stage or archiving your studio-worthy song ideas for further review and arrangement, the RC-5 delivers the run time and quality you're searching for.
*Maximum single track length: 1.5 hours
As anyone with a looper will tell you, those memory slots store up fast. That's why the BOSS RC-5 gives you not only 99 Phrase Memories for instant recall — each complete with overdubs and rhythm presets — but USB import/export as well. So when you need to offload loops from your solo acoustic shows to make way for your Eddie Money-tribute sax lines, swapping out files is as easy as dragging and dropping.
Traditional loopers leave you in the dark when it comes to loop arrangement. But not the BOSS RC-5 Loop Station. Its animated RGB LCD screen keeps you apprised of beat, measure, and record (red)/playback (green) status. This visual reference lets you interact with loops in powerful new ways.
When you just want a looper you can run into your amp without additional cables, the RC-5 Loop Station's 9-volt battery support pays off in a major way. Get up to two hours of runtime on an alkaline 9-volt battery. Or for more permanent pedalboard setups, run the RC-5 long-term on a standard 9-volt center-negative power supply, such as the Roland PSA-S (not included).
When you're laying down a rhythm part, a backbeat can galvanize your grooves like nothing else. The RC-5 gives you 57 different rhythms tracks, each with A/B variations, which can be auditioned back through your choice of seven drum kits. Application is simple: tap in a tempo directly on the RC-5 as you create a loop, then just engage the Rhythm On/Off button for instant accompaniment.
Love ambient drums? You can assign the RC-5 Loop Station's rich onboard digital reverb to rhythm tracks for added depth and dimensionality. Reverb settings can be saved along with kit choice to the RC-5's 99 Phrase Memories.
