In fact, for solo performances, you could even viably use the onboard drum tracks in a live setting.

Featuring best-in-class 32-bit AD/DA and 32-bit floating-point processing, the RC-500 captures your personal sound with full fidelity and keeps loops crystal-clear - even with multiple overdubs. While this was a welcome feature at the time, the drum tracks got old and did not exactly inspire creativity.Chris loves getting nerdy about everything from guitar gear and synths, to microphones and music production hardware. Otherwise, there is only one connection for the separately available 9 V DC power supply to operate the device. If you prefer to spend a little less money, you should take a look at the RC-5, the little brother of the RC-500.

I also wish it came with a power adaptor, I went out and bought one as the batteries didn't last very long. In the end, I have to conclude that I spent a lot of money and a lot of time for something that isn't capable of fulfilling its purpose. Each of the 57 preset rhythms include A/B variations, while 16 different drum kits provide sounds to match any style. There are three metallic footswitches on the lower half of the body, angled towards you as you play, with a series of buttons, a couple of dials and two sliders on the top section, surrounding a small LCD display.

However, 4 AA batteries are part of the package making it possible for you to start the Loop Station immediately without a power supply adapter. Like the RC-5, the RC-500 is a Loop Station working on a 32-bit signal processing, but there's a difference in the design as well as a considerably higher number of buttons.

Both devices have two tracks and 99 memory slots for phrases, come with a drum machine including 16 drum kits and work on high-quality 32-bit signal processing. This is a crosspost from r/guitarpedals, someone there made me aware of this subreddit and it looks cool - hi everybody! Some value them as a practice tool, laying down a basic chord progression over which they can work at expanding their lick vocabulary. The bottom line is that if you’re like most guitarists, looping mainly as a practice tool or for a bit of fun, with the occasional gig, it’s comfortably towards the top of the pack. Although the drum rhythms are much better on the 500, the traditional effects on the older unit are perhaps more useful.

It will CERTAINLY adapt to your own workflow (you just have to spend some time with it and set it up right). Whether you're looking for simple, snappy loops, or long, complex loop lines, you can be sure that the RC-500 will accommodate you. You can stop and start each track to create different musical sections or overlays, which can really help expand how far you take your loop compositions. To connect the device to a PC or Mac, it has a USB micro-B port (even though we wondered: why not use a USB-C port in 2020). Like its smaller RC-5 sibling, the RC-500 features class-leading 32-bit AD/DA and 32-bit floating-point processing, as well as 13 hours of recording time and onboard storage for 99 phrase memories.

Not that big of a deal but the drum patterns could be a bit more sophisticated and let you import your own pattern, which it doesn't. of deliveries are made within that time, but there are situations where items may experience a delay. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Well… For the seasoned looper, this pedal is fantastic—lots of features that will be easily digested.Additionally, you can connect the pedal to your computer and download or upload other loops in your library. Sitting above the RC-5 and RC-1 in terms of functionality and size, but not quite as fully featured as the spaceship-like RC-600, the Boss RC-500 offers a decent balance between excited immediacy and progressive functionality.
