BOSS announces the RC-30 and RC-3 Loop Station pedals.

Featuring digital signal processing, stereo operation, and new features, these battery-powered loopers are successors to BOSS’ RC-20XL and RC-2 Loop Station pedals.

 

Now, powered by BOSS’ ESC2 DSP chip, the RC-30 and RC-3 Loop Stations offer looping musicians tools available for recording and manipulating audio loops live and in the studio.

 

The RC-30 is housed in BOSS' Twin Pedal chassis, like the RC-20XL it replaces. New features include true stereo inputs and outputs, plus up to three hours of onboard stereo recording and loop storage, a marked upgrade to its predecessor's mono I/O and 16 minutes of mono recording. Additionally, the RC-30 has a new dual phrase loop feature that lets users create and play two independent stereo loop phrases in sync.

 

Included in the RC-30 is the LOOP FX feature that lets users process their loop recordings in real time, plus 99 memories for onboard loop storage and an LED memory indicator. In addition, a USB 2.0 port lets users swap and manage WAV audio loops with a computer. Holdover features from the RC-20XL include a mic input with phantom power, an AUX IN jack for connecting a portable music player, and a key selection of onboard rhythms, which now include real audio drum loops.

 

The RC-3 is the RC-30's kid brother, housed in a rugged BOSS compact pedal chassis. The RC-3 offers the essential features of the RC-30 in smaller package, including stereo I/O, up to three hours of stereo recording and loop storage, 99 onboard memories, USB 2.0, and built-in rhythms. Users can connect an optional BOSS FS-5U Foot Switch for additional foot control if desired.
