The RC-500 is an essential partner for guitarists, singer/songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, and anyone who wants to take their looping to the next level. Craft real-time compositions with two loop tracks, mic and stereo instrument inputs, rhythms, and inspiring Loop FX, all backed by premium 32-bit audio quality. Store loops in onboard memories, and explore expanded operation with external controls and MIDI. Filled with next-generation Loop Station features, the RC-500 gives serious creators the tools they need to develop new ideas and deliver impactful performances that will leave audiences wanting more.

Super Sound Quality
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. And with 13 hours of stereo recording time, there's plenty of space for extended creative journeys.

Connect, Loop, and Mix
With its versatile I/O and free-flowing interface, the RC-500 is ready to support all your musical visions. Connect mono/stereo instruments and pedal effects, plus a mic to the dedicated XLR input - complete with phantom power if needed. Use the two tracks independently for song-style composition, or together for rich multi-track textures. The LCD backlight changes color to clearly show the current operation mode, while hands-on track faders and a mic level knob provide direct access to volume control as you loop.

Flexible Creative Control
Three onboard footswitches make it simple to control recording and playback, track switching, and more. For expanded operation, you can connect up to two external footswitches for direct control of many assignable functions, or an expression pedal for continuous adjustments. And for advanced rigs, the space-saving TRS MIDI I/O enables remote operation from MIDI switchers and foot controllers, plus MIDI sync with drum machines and DAWs.    

Personalize Your Setup
The RC-500's I/O and footswitches are configured for basic operations by default, but they can be reassigned in a variety of ways to meet your custom needs. Route left/right input sources to separate tracks, or send guitar and vocals to independent outputs. Use the footswitches to turn effects on/off, start/stop rhythms, and more. Custom assignments are saved along with phrase memories, letting you instantly reconfigure the RC-500 for any application.   

Energize Performances with Rhythms and Loop FX
Loaded with inspiring rhythms and evocative loop processing, the RC-500 is primed to bring groove and color to all your looping adventures. Each of the 57 preset rhythms include A/B variations, while 16 different drum kits provide sounds to match any style. Designed for live performance, Loop FX like repeat, scatter, and more infuse your loops with instant sonic energy. There's a cool reverse function too, perfect for creating unique sonic flavors on demand.

Capture, Practice, and Perform
The RC-500's 99 phrase memories let you store loops as fast as you create them, complete with rhythm and kit selections, audio settings, and control assignments. Loop audio can be backed up to a computer via USB. And with WAV import via BOSS Tone Studio, the RC-500 becomes a central playback hub for lesson material, jam tracks, or backing music for your next gig.

not made for verse/chorus


Sadly, this pedal doesn't support verse/chorus very well and I had to return it. It sounds great with the 32 bit processor and it's built well. Even in simultaneous mode it still requires an awkward pedal dance. Too bad the firmware missed the mark on this one. Had great potential. I hate having to return gear. Makes me sick to my stomach. Should have done more research. I saw "Two Track" and just assumed they would have thought about fully supporting verse/chorus with varying length tracks and without an awkward pedal dance.



That stinks has more features compared to my previous one


It's amazing simple amazing think beforeI had RC 30 boss loop That stinks has more features compared to my previous one



good, easy to use but gigantic.


it's good but it's huge for what it does, and still not an "RC505 on the floor", which is my Valhalla.



Decent, flexible, worth the $, but room for improvement.. bu


I like the rc500, but if you are a guitarist, I would recommend you be smart and use it with midi switches / controls in a live situation so you are not reaching down to switch to various memory settings. Although this is a powerful device, the rhythm section is basic, and not professional sounding... Also, although two tracks are better than one, it still represents a live restriction, especially for pre-recorded tracks.... The unit is programmable and pretty flexible...



Best 2 track looper out there


Very powerful looper! New routing options make it exceptional.
