And once you’ve created a body of work, you can use the RC-3’s USB 2.0 port to conveniently save your loops onto your computer. Looping has never been this simple, portable, powerful, and fun!

Auto Record
The Auto Recording feature starts recording the moment you begin playing your guitar, 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!

Rhythm Guide
To keep your loops tight and in time, you can play along with one of the basic rhythm patterns in the RC-3’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-3 to your computer via a standard USB cable, and back up your RC-3 recordings to your computer for safekeeping. You can also load WAV files from your computer directly into the RC-3. The RC-3 accepts 16-bit/44.1kHz WAV files of up to 1.7GB in size.

AUX Input
In addition to recording your guitar or bass performances and turning them into playable loops, you can also record other external stereo audio sources via the RC-3’s AUX IN. Sound from a digital-audio player connected to the AUX input, for example, can easily be recorded and made into a loop.

Easy to use. Sound quality of the play back is great



Great buy!


Great pedal! I'm using it for most of my new recording sessions.



Ready for hours of fun?


Sort of like if Jesus came back but he was happy instead of all angry and vengeful. The preset tracks are fun to jam with.....my wife says, " Who are you singing about?!!!!"



It is a little difficult to understand. Poor owners guide.


Use it as a loop station



Perfect Loop pedal to get the job done


RC-3 does everything you need to set a loop, play overdubs, and solo on the fly. The digital screen makes saving and recalling loops simple. Perfect for solo practice and performance. Built sturdy and feels strong.
