Willoo7's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Super!"

Boss RC-300 Loop Station
See other comments. I just added a few details.


Very intuitive!
No possibility to assign Rhythm On / Off.
The red façade not easy to read what is written there when there is too much light.
I would have preferred a wider wheel (like the Boss GT-8) for more ergonomic.
Very convenient to work alone but discouraged live or group.


The effects are not great but if you buy a loop station, it is not for its effects.
So the looper is perfect!
The recordings are of good quality WAV format.


Very good looper but still remains expensive.

Boss RC-300 Loop Station
This is primarily a looper. effects are somewhat anecdotal I do not use it. the connection is very rich instrument input and mic. only downside we can not route input (select the input instrument to track the microphone on another one. we can cheat by using the stereo as two mono channels


this device is perfect in its design we understand everything very quickly and yet there is a wealth of opportunity


the sound is very good I did not notice any loss (with an acoustic or amplified with Electric lamps.


two weeks. I also have a ditto very minimal but I tried a digitech jaman the real crap
what I love most practically all
least the impossibility of routing entries

Boss RC-300 Loop Station
General information on the manufacturer's page:

In short:

Loop Station 3 tracks + multi-effects with expression pedal.
Each track is assigned two footswitch PLAY / REC / DUB STOP. And a volume fader and an EDIT button to track parameters.
A RHYTHM part with a volume knob, with a TAP TEMPO LED, ON / OFF and EDIT
The "multi-purpose" includes five sections: TRANSPOSE, MODULATION, VOICE, GT / BASS OTHERS. It contains a transposition effect - / +12 semitones, flanger, phaser, pan, tremolo, slicer, bend, chorus, Robot Voice, Male, Female, Guitar> Bass, Filter, Delay, Lo-Fi, Distortion.
All, or nearly all, are configurable (volume, rate, drive, etc. ... no EQ though).
A knob allows for infinite rotation to navigation button and the "<" and ">".
SYSTEM is used to set general parameters: Screen contrast and asignation all controllers of the pedal.
MEMORY EDIT to the parameter memory (all three tracks): Renowned memories, their volume, tempo, fade in / out, reverb, assignment of external controllers.
Three knob for INPUT VOLUME, AUX (auxiliary mini-jack), INST (input jacks) MIC (XLR input).
The FX LOOP switch to turn off the effects, and the expression pedal to modulate.

The connectors are:
DC IN (supplied AC) POWER, USB (cable not included), MIDI IN / THRU / OUT, 2 inputs for external pedal control, headphone jack, mono outputs / Stereo Aux / mono / stereo / XLR


Considering all the options available, it should sincerely consider the manual and tweak some settings to all comprendres use. It&#39;ll be two years that I have and there are still some function that I&#39;m not going to change (eg assignment.).
The manual is fairly comprehensive and understandable.
Once taken in hand, it is very intuitive, all rules in 2sec. You do not spend 10 minutes on stage to adjust knowing that all your settings are recordable.
Very flexible pedal, it folds almost all your requirements.
I also use the pedal as a recorder, I write my songs on paper records each part of the RC-300. Then the extract on my computer via a USB cable (not supplied) A male / B male. Between all in a DAW or digital sequence. This allows me to have no external sound card, a treaty audio WAV rather good.


The effects are not those that may have to find real pedal. They are there to give a general idea of ​​a sound you could get with a real config.
Some are very clean and the other less (Various distortion. Still very digital).
Simulation at low tendency to get quite often, but enough to make the bass line with a guitar to work. Following in his final is a bit too rough.
Either way, this is a pedal loops and no multi-effects. For sound reproduction, it is perfect, even when it slows time aliasing remains low (with reasonable deviations, if you move from one record to 200bpm to 60bpm reading it necessarily has a sound too "digital "However, the pedal tells you to" TOO SLOW "or" TOO FAST ".
The effects are assignable multi point INPUT TRACK 1/2/3 MAINOUT TRACKS, MAINOUT TR & RHY, MAINOUT TOTAL. Warning malgrès the great number available. effects, we do not make chain effect, one is usable. We can still superimposed tracks with different effects when applied input.
For drum rhythms recorded is very complete: 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, 7/4, 5/8, 6/8, 7/8, 8 / 8, 9/8, 10/8, 11/8, 12/8, 13/8, 14/8, 15/8 with different style in another Simple Beat, Rock, Downbeat, Funk, Groove, Bossa, Samba, Swing, Pop, Fusion, hit hat, Congas, Latin Rock, Shuffle (1/2, 16th), 909 Beat (electro), R & B, Claves ...
For me, some critical to come to this section:
The style statements are not all available. on all metrics with some glaring oversight (no swing 3/4!). And for me, the biggest oversight, a METRONOME. A simple click is not configurable for refusal. For common measures is not too annoying, but asymmetric measures are divisible x ways and we must "settle" predefined divisions.
However, with a USB cable (A Male / B Male not included) can be inserted in the audio track of the pedal and then make your own rhythm patterns on a computer. They will not affect on the other hand by changes in tempi of the pedal.


I use this pedal for 2 years now, I am more than satisfied. It allows me to bosser almost all of my pieces (you have to work to change the metric on its own or with an imported audio track). Some forgotten though. The pedal is sometimes updated, for now, only one update to my knowledge that corrected a bug on some pedal ("TOO BUSY" / "MEMORY FULL" while this is not the case). For now the updates will not insert functionality or other and I do not think that pre-occupies the BOSS team.

This is the only model that I actually tried. I hit quickly make the RC-30 but I found it a bit limited. I&#39;m not really interested in the model of other brands.

The +:
-Storage Capacity
-Various metrics available. in various style
-Reliable and Solid (BOSS what)

The -:
The price-
-The size (do not think the carry in a backpack)
Non-cumulative effects
-Unable to change memory during playback
No-click / metronome

The quality / price ratio ... pedal is expensive but does a very good job and seems inexhaustible. This is a good investiment when we have the means. It allows a thorough working quietly at home (recording grids, compos ...).

I never use it on stage, except for the launch some pre-recorded samples. I feel used primarily to work the guitar and recording little demo. I play mostly Jazz, and suddenly some oversights (like the abscence of swing 3/4) strikes me a little but it&#39;s quibbling.

I certainly do this choice.

Boss RC-300 Loop Station
This looper with its effects is also a sound card. What could be better?

Exchange done by correspondence Rc 30 RC 300 on an online store.


Yes it is simple, not 36 submenus. I have not found the record-overdub-fading very intuitive.
No complaints about the manual. I am surprised that Boss does not advance as a selling point the sound of the looper function card.


The sound is good no buzzing or crackling other. While this is good material there is one thing that I liked - the reverse function to edit a track. Very effective!


Well I hang it. Yet it is more effective than the first I had pedal.
A display pattern / bpm would have been welcome. I will not repeat that choice. I have done better to take a midi controller for Live. This type of material is not for me.
