With the Boss RC-30 Loop Station, everyone is welcome to the party, guitarists, bassists, keyboard players, singers, and even non-musicians who want to explore loop-making using sound effects and noisemaking objects.

In addition to the features found in the RC-3, the RC-30 adds a second synchronized stereo track for creating more complex loops. With each track being independently controllable, you can interactively manipulate stereo loops for expanded creativity. With the RC-30's 3 hours of stereo looping capability, you can be sure that you will not run out of memory to store your loops. Another big bonus of the RC-30 is the inclusion of creative onboard effects, as well as an XLR input with phantom power. Plug in the microphone of your choice, sing, loop, and amaze your audience. The RC-30 is ideal for live performances as well as recording.

Features:

  • Rhythm Guides using real drum samples
  • Built in effects including pitch bend, step phaser, a sweep filter that syncs with the current tempo, and a tempo synced delay
  • Store and download sound files via USB
  • Tap Tempo control for the Rhythm Guide
  • Dual Pedal controls

Twin Stereo Loops
Create and stack multi-layered loops with twin stereo tracks — each track being independently controllable with dedicated volume faders and track-select buttons. Creating loops is convenient with the Auto Recording feature, which starts recording the moment you begin playing your guitar, bass, keyboard, or singing, or as soon as you start a connected audio player. Count-In mode gives you one-bar of rhythm before recording starts. You can Undo/Redo as you go. The sky’s the limit, with three hours of recording time!

Onboard Effects
Fans of BOSS’s world-famous effects will be pleased to find a lineup of creative effects onboard the RC-30. Bend Down provides a dramatic pitch-bend effect. Step Phaser changes phase in incremental steps. Sweep Filter alters frequency in sync with the current tempo. Tempo Delay produces a tempo-synced delay effect. Lo-Fi intentionally degrades the sound to create a distinctive character. Dunk your loops in cool effects without the cost and hassle of adding external gear.

Mic Input
Vocalists can plug a microphone of their choice directly into the RC-30’s XLR microphone input, complete with phantom power if you wish to use a condenser mic. Sing, overdub, and make multi-layered loops of your voice, create vocal sound-effects patterns, or point the microphone at your acoustic musical instruments, or anything that makes noise and turn it into a cool loop. You don’t have to be a musician to get in on the LoopStation action!

Rhythm Guide
To keep your loops tight and in time, play along with one of the basic rhythm patterns in the RC-30’s onboard library as you record. Ten types of rhythm types are provided, including Rock, Pop, Funk, Shuffle, R&B, and Latin. A dedicated knob lets you adjust the volume of the rhythm, and you can set the tempo via tap tempo. You can also specify the time signature. When you save a phrase, the rhythm type and time signature will also be saved.

USB Connectivity
You can connect the RC-30 to your computer via a standard USB cable, and back up your RC-30 phrases to your computer for safekeeping. You can also load WAV files from your computer directly into the RC-30. The RC-30 accepts 16-bit/44.1kHz WAV files of up to 1.7GB in size.

AUX Input
In addition to recording your instrument performances and turning them into playable loops, you can record other external stereo audio sources via the AUX IN. Sound from a digital-audio player or other device connected to the AUX input can easily be recorded and added to your loop.


With the RC-30, everyone is welcome to the party, guitarists, bassists, keyboard players, singers, and even non-musicians who want to explore loop-making using sound effects, noisemaking objects, etc. It’s time to experience the power and creativity of live, interactive looping!

    Great pedal! Works great for any solo or duo work. Very portable and easy to use. I don't care much for the drum tracks though.

    This is a great loop station.It does a lot and will take some time to master.It cab play dual tracks together with each track having it's own volume control.It is great for improving your playing and for building a song.
    Buy the 9V power supply as the batteries don't last too long.
