Five Stereo Tracks with Dedicated Controls
With five stereo phrase tracks that can play simultaneously, the Boss RC-505 exceeds the capabilities of all previous Boss loopers. Independent record/overdub/play and stop buttons for each track let you capture and control loop performances with your fingertips, and dedicated volume faders allow you to mix loop levels on the fly. Each track can have its own playback mode (multi, single, one-shot, reverse, etc.) and tempo sync settings, providing an unlimited range of creative looping behaviors.

Powerful FX Onboard
All the effects you need are built in to the Boss RC-505. INPUT FX such as ROBOT and VOCODER create unique, dramatic sound textures for recording loops, while TRACK FX like VINYL FLICK and BEAT REPEAT provide dynamic DJ and sampler effects. You can assign the Loop Stations six effects buttons to any effects you want for pushbutton access while performing. In addition, effects parameters (filter cutoff, effect depth, etc.) can be tweaked in real time with the INPUT FX and TRACK FX knobs. Global compressor and reverb effects are also available for processing the overall sound output.

Phrase Memories and Rhythms
99 phrase memories provide onboard storage for phrase track data, various playback and effects settings, and more. User Sets let you store frequent settings, which you can easily load to quickly reconfigure any phrase memory, even in the heat of performing. 85 different onboard rhythms offer backing for loop recording, with a large selection of odd-measure beats for advanced looping. The rhythm part can be routed to the rear-panel PHONES jack only, giving you a dedicated click track for monitoring purposes.

Audio Inputs and USB
The Boss RC-505 has loads of inputs, the better to mix may different audio sources as you build loops: XLR microphone jack with phantom power; mono/stereo ¼-inch inputs for guitars, synths, or other instruments; and an AUX mini-jack for connecting a music player, smart phone, or other stereo device.  USB computer access is inlcuded so you can import/export WAV audio phrases, for loop archiving or loading up RC-505 phrases with backing tracks or sounds for sampler-style triggering. The RC-505 also functions as a USB audio/MIDI interface, making it simple to integrate with your favorite Production software for audio recording, MIDI sync, and more.

The eight control assignments are stored with phrase memories, allowing you to create and recall custom setups for different songs and performing situations.

A fun way to practice creativity


I've used this several times over the past weeks and it's been so much fun to learn with and to understand song composition. The write function on the looper as well saves your loops so you can use them later to practice with or bring to a performance later. Amazing product, hope to learn more from it.



worth the price


Beautiful instrument



Excellent looper with so many functions


Haven't gotten to put this through all the paces yet, but I am super impressed with what I have tried so far. Very intuitive interface, great sound quality, easy setup. Will add more as get to know the device.



Love my Boss 505 loop station!


Amazingly useful songwriting scratchpad and tool for DJs, musicians and creatives. I am enjoying using this bad boy and find it pretty intuitive.



5 channels, limitless potentials


This 5-channel looper is excellent for live performances and as an at home work station. After reading the manual you will discover just how customizable this device truly is. From track/input fx, to being a functional midi device, and with the aux port it also works as a sampler. I have purchased this twice over the years and still find myself suprised at it's capabilities



Would recommend to bands and solo artists


I loved this loop station. By far one of the best that I've seen. I Enjoy creating different rhythms and patterns to include while I perform.



Wicked Solid Righteous


This is by far in my top five one of the best soon as I have ever purchased. I have the RC 300 and the RC three. Every vocalist should have this just for practice as well as for performance it's lightweight small and extremely responsive a very groovy unit I can't wait to see what else boss will come out with.

Endless Loops!


The RC-505 is the only loop pedal one could need. Featuring 5 separate tracks, each with individual functionality and effects, the looping possibilities are endless. This pedal can be used for simply jamming leads over a rhythm or constructing an entire song. Add in the 85 different drum tracks and you've got yourself a one man band packed into an easy to use interface. This revamped loop station can do it all.

The most versatile Boss looper yet!. With hand operated controls and 85 onboard rhythms this unit really gives you unlimited looping capability! This is a real hands-on product review from rAm in Sam Ash Columbus.

Killer Loop Pedal


This thing is just killer. I've got one customer who does a whole show using this thing, and he plays all the instruments: bass, guitar, drums off of one of those drum machines, and he just makes all his loops go through this pedal, and by the time he sings, he's got all the instruments done. This is a real hands-on product review from Rock'n Dave @ Sam Ash Canoga Park.
