ThibautGPP's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Love it!"

Boss RC-30 Loop Station
Rather than words, I offer an overview of the pedal on the following link:


I advise you to listen to headphones because I completely craqu the volume is very low (or so I'm deaf)

And a sample piece made live https://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_13856716?utm_campaign=opengraph&utm_content=song&utm_medium=link&utm_source=facebook

(Gear: fender strat => Boss ME50 => EHX Freeze => Boss RC30 => Presonus audiobox)

Today I have 85 tracks in memory, all with at least 3 layers per track and a hard ranging between 10 seconds and 2 minutes, and I can always continue recording, so really very autonomy of memory.

USE

Very simple to use, provided that we give 10 minutes of her time reading the manual and many tour the possibilities.

I love this pedal, but it all depends on the use that is made. As evoked in other opinions, you just forget intensive use live if we want to have fun changing track every 3 minutes for it is galre (unless you record the intgralit the song on a same track of course)

I mostly use it as a tool to build solo riffs, find ideas and memorize, and it has gnial.

When I'm using it in a group, it is to wedge a line or a rhythm that I can cut, enrich or raise will.

It is much more user-friendly and intuitive as the RC3 (my way) and for connecting a mic in fantom, which use it normment.

It is not intended to be a pace bote but the possibility to connect a footswitch to turn dye the beat really would go further on the use of the machine live




SOUND QUALITY

I do not understand the notice that the pedal ruin the sound quality ...

If the branch on a single channel with the beat lamps Switch-on that's for sure that this is not jojo but seems empty. See my video (o I live branch on a sound card), the sound is not dnatur all. On my amp lamps, I am using that part loop that works very well, prefer against by a transistor (see speakers) if you make heavy use of Drumbox because the frequencies of an amp guitar are specially adapted.

For computer music or headphones with RC30 end of string, the sound is excellent.

NOTICE GLOBAL


As with everything, there are lots of qualities and defects that discovers as and (especially defects!), But I am very happy with this pedal, again for the use I make.

Most
Sound quality
Memory and double tracks
Drumbox that quite dpanne

Les -
The two tracks must be the same length
the drums are not activated by footswitch
Not possible to rgler tempo ultra Manire accuracy of all: this should be more a notch and a knob for rgler

ThibautGPP's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Super pedal"

Boss RC-30 Loop Station
Seen again and again, I will not again repeat the characteristics of the machine.
I just want to point out that even with the 99 memories bursting with sounds (most of which are recorded on two tracks with several overloops), I never reached the recording limit. Autonomy is really huge.

UTILIZATION

Config requires a small adjustment to fit the purpose just pushed the craft, which is the case for any looper. I personally find it more intuitive to use than the JamMan, but it is very subjective.

Boss RC30 located its interest in the aspect of "plug & play" not setting the input, no unexpected saturation and simultaneous recording of guitar + micro childish song.

Built-in effects (applicable only on a loop being played, not the instrument during recording) are anecdotal or completely useless. For cons, I find very nice to use rhythm patterns when you get a solo session.

The real lack I noticed over time, it is impossible to set a specific tempo, eg 130 bpm. The adjustment is made by pressing a button, without indication. Alone, it is no problem. But for a sophisticated use live or in a group, this can be annoying, a shift being quickly arrived on long loops.

SOUND QUALITY

I find excellent sound reproduction even after multiple overloops. The faders are very useful to adjust the volumes on the fly. The only limit is finally the amp, which should be powerful enough to collect a busy track, which may end up invading force the entire spectrum.

I use it mainly for guitar and secondarily for singing. The result is very satisfactory from my point of view. We must remember to put the pedal end of the chain (ideally in the effects loop when it has one) to get the best effect and not too damaging the input signal.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 years and am very satisfied. Its virtually unlimited memory, 2 tracks, the recording quality, plug aside $ play, patterns and the ability to recover all of its tracks on a pc really do a great tool. It just lacks a precise timing tempo (present on the Jamman) but I prefer the ergonomics of the Boss
