We had Kelly Morris from Boss in the studio to showcase the RC-202 Loop Station. She gave us an amazing demonstration of how quick and easy it is to get something going on this looper. Watch how she records, loops, and manipulates every sample with ease. Take a look.

Kelly takes us more in depth into how she gets her loops going and how she sets up her effects. There are different recording options such as Instant Playback or Instant Overdub that let you decide what happens after you press that play/record button. From there, we get 40 different vocal effects to choose from such as delay, reverb, guitar to bass, and various filters. You can have up to 4 effects going at once to create really interesting sounds. She’ll show you how you can use track effects on the right side of the looper to effect the overall track after loops have already been made.

There’s a lot of opportunity to really create some really diverse sounds.

Recording on this is really really easy. Basically, if you can count to 4, you can use this thing. It’s super user-friendly.

She ended her session at the Ash Studio by giving us a first hand lesson in looping. How do we record? How does this machine work? Kelly has the answers for us. The lights on the play/record button give us an indication of what’s happening in the looper. Red means record, Yellow means overdub, and Green means playback. She’ll show you how to time your button presses, give you a good idea on which track to put each section of your loop, and show you just how easy and fun recording with the RC-202 can be.
