Dual-Track PowerhouseThe Boss RC-500 works as a vital partner for guitarists, singer/songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, along with anyone who wants to up their looping game. Create 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. You can store loops in onboard memories, and experience expanded functions with external controls and MIDI. Filled with next-generation Loop Station features, the RC-500 gives serious musicians the tools they need to create new ideas and deliver astonishing performances that will leave audiences wanting more.
• Advanced two-track looper with onboard mixing and deep control options
• Class-leading sound quality with 32-bit AD/DA and 32-bit floating-point processing
• LCD with multi-color backlight for viewing loop status and editing parameters
• 16 different drum kits and 57 preset rhythms with A/B variations
• Onboard storage for 99 phrase memories
Super Sound Quality
Crystal Clear LoopsThe RC-500 features the best-in-class 32-bit AD/DA and 32-bit floating-point processing, the RC-500 captures your own unique 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 further creative journeys.
Connect, Loop, & Mix
Rich Multi-Track TexturesFeaturing a versatile I/O and free-flowing interface, the RC-500 is ready to support all your musical ideas. 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 seperately for song-style composition, or together for rich multi-track textures. The LCD backlight changes color to show the current operation mode cleary, while hands-on track faders and a mic level knob provide instant access to volume control as you loop.
Flexible Creative Control
Simple To ControlThree onboard footswitches make it easy to control recording and playback, track switching, and more. For further use, you can connect up to two external footswitches for direct control of many assignable functions, or an expression pedal for continuous adjustments.
For more advanced set ups, the space-saving TRS MIDI I/O allows remote operation from MIDI switchers and foot controllers, and also MIDI sync with drum machines and DAWs.
Personalize Your Setup
Custom AssignmentsThe RC-500’s I/O and footswitches are configured for basic operations by default, but they can be reassigned in many different ways to follow on with your ideas.
Route left/right input sources to separate tracks, or send guitar and vocals to seperate outputs. Use the footswitches to turn effects on/off, start/stop rhythms, and more.
Custom assignments are saved along with phrase memories, allowing you to instantly reconfigure the RC-500 for any application.
Energize Performances with Rhythms & Loop FX
Rapid Sonic EnergyPacked with rhythms and evocative loop processing, the RC-500 is sure to bring characteristic and groove to all your looping compositions. Each of the 57 preset rhythms include A/B variations, while 16 different drum kits provide sounds to match any style.
Created 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 sounds on demand.
Capture, Practice, & Perform
Quick StorageThe RC-500’s 99 phrase memories enables you to store loops as fast as you create them, full 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.
