Loop Station


Looping Magic at Your FingertipsThe BOSS RC-505mkII loop station comes packed with inspiring features for on-the-spot music creation. Brining next-generation power and flexibility to the world’s most popular tabletop looper, you can enhance your performances with five stereo tracks and four simultaneous Input FX and Track FX, and go even further with customizable buttons, expanded I/O, more mixing control, and other improvements requested by long-time RC-505 users. Designed for free-flowing expression on stage and in the studio, the RC-505mkII is a dream come true for beatboxers, vocalists, multi-instrumentalists, and other aspiring looping artists.

At A Glance • The industry-standard tabletop looper, updated and enhanced
• Input FX and Track FX sections, each with four simultaneous effects and four quick-access banks
• Five simultaneous stereo phrase tracks with dedicated controls and independent volume faders
• Class-leading sound quality with 32-bit AD/DA and 32-bit floating-point processing
• Customizable FX and Track buttons for each phrase track

Multiple New Features


More To LoveThe RC‐505mkII includes everything that made the original so highly rated, with an extra range of new features to make the looping experience even more creative and free flowing. The faders offer longer throw for finer adjustments and have a more solid feel under the fingers.

Each track now has dedicated FX and Track buttons, so it's easier to colour and control your loops in the heat of the moment. Undo/redo has also been further developed with a Mark Back function that lets you instantly jump back to a previous loop state while performing.

Customize Your Workflow


Double Your OptionsAlthough the original RC‐505 was very customizable, the RC‐505mkII takes things to the next level with a wider range of configurable controls. You can assign various CTL parameters to the FX and Track buttons and trigger them with a press, hold, or double‐click.

Pressing the Undo/Redo button reveals a secondary layer, doubling your options. Two external control jacks are also available for connecting footswitches or expression pedals, each with their own dedicated set of parameters. If you still want more, tap into the Assign screens to set up 16 different targets for hardware control and MIDI operation.

More Sonic Colours for Inspired Looping


Greater OptionsSonic variety helps make loop performances more compelling, and the RC‐505mkII provides a greatly expanded FX palette to colour your sounds during recording and playback. There are 49 Input FX and 53 Track FX types to go between, including powerful new vocal harmony effects, with the option of using up to four in each section at once.

In addition, groups of four Input FX and Track FX can be stored in four banks for quick recall, along with toggle or momentary button settings for each type. A step sequence function is also available in some FX to automate parameter changes for dynamic real‐time movement.

Connect & Mix


Extensive ConnectivityWith the RC‐505mkII’s extended connectivity and onboard audio processing, you can do more using less external gear. You have two XLR inputs for mics and two mono/stereo line input pairs for instruments and other devices, plus an input mixer with two mic compressors and independent EQs for all channels.

Three stereo output pairs and an output mixer are also available, together with assignable routing options and master reverb and compressor effects. You can also customize the headphones output to monitor individual tracks and rhythm sounds. And by using USB, you can integrate with computer DAWs and use BOSS Tone Studio to import/export WAV loops.

Creative Details


Quicker workflowTo meet the unique workflow demands of different performers, the RC‐505mkII offers many new creative details inspired by longtime Loop Station users. Three different overdub modes are available, including one that lets you replace the current sound in a loop track while it’s playing, and a new Bounce In function for capturing multiple tracks into one.

Half and double speed options are also on hand, and you can freely change the overall playback speed with or without pitch change. It is now also possible to assign the Auto Rec function to a panel button or footswitch for quick activation whenever you need it.
