Loop Station

3 Hours of Stereo Recording In A StompboxThe Boss RC-3 is stocked with powerful features all housed in a convenient and compact stompbox. Up to three hours of stereo recording time is available with storage for 99 loops, a “real drums” rhythm guide, and USB 2.0 compatibility. The three hours of stereo recording capacity is stored directly to internal memory. You can now record long phrases without worrying about memory, with 99 memory locations allowing you to save as many phrases or ideas as you can create. Guitarists wishing to incorporate external stereo effects devices will love the true stereo I/O featured on the RC-3.

Along with recording your guitar or bass performances and turning them into playable loops, you can also record other separate stereo audio sources using the RC-3’s AUX IN. Sound from a digital-audio player connected to the AUX input, can easily be recorded and made into a loop. You can also connect the RC-3 to your computer using an ordinary USB cable, then back up your RC-3 recordings to your computer to keep them safe. You can load WAV files from your computer directly into the RC-3 too, and it accepts 16-bit/44.1kHz WAV files of up to 1.7GB in size.

Amazing Features • USB 2.0 port allows you to connect to a PC and import/export WAV audio
• Massive internal memory with up to three hours of stereo recording time
• Runs on a single 9-volt battery or optional AC power supply
• Compact and powerful stereo stompbox looper
• 99 onboard memories for storing loops
• Rhythm guide with real drums

Rhythm Guide

Dedicated ControlsTo keep your loops tight and in time, you can play along with one of the basic rhythm patterns in the RC-3’s built-in library as you record. Up to ten types of rhythm types are available, including Rock, Pop, Funk, Shuffle, R&B, and Latin.

A dedicated knob lets you control the volume of the rhythm, and you can set the tempo using tap tempo. You can also change the time signature. When you save a phrase, the rhythm type and time signature will also be saved.

Auto Record
