The RC-300 Loop Station by Boss is one big, bad looping machine. If you've ever used a loop pedal by Boss before, you know how easy they are to use and how great they sound. In this case, take what you know and multiply it by three. The RC-300 features three synchronized stereo tracks with dedicated volume faders, footswitches and onboard effects allowing you to create and manipulate countless multi-layered loops.

Simply plug in your guitar, bass, keyboard, or any external audio device such as an iPod or CD player and immediately begin constructing impressive loops just as soon as audio hits the RC-300. You can even plug in a microphone and capture/loop vocals with the built-in, phantom powered XLR input. It also comes packed with sixteen popular effects, large master expression pedal and a wide, easy to read control panel.

The pedal board is equipped with six footswitches for recording, playing and stopping loops. There are also two additional footswitches, Master and Loop FX which provide convenient all start/stop control and instant activation of onboard effects. Control effect parameters in real time and apply them to a single track or an entire mix. Wish there were just a couple more pedals? Not even a problem. Easily connect external expression pedals and footswitches that you already own or purchase in the future for added control.

Just when you thought you couldn't ask for more, the RC-300 includes a library of 83 onboard rhythms and audio backing tracks to play along with and keep your loops tight and in time. We're talking dozens of different rhythms across numerous genres, some including bass and piano accompaniment. Styles range from rock, pop, shuffle, Latin and more. A dedicated knob allows you to control the volume of the rhythm track and easily adjust the tempo in increments or via the Tap Tempo button.

The RC-300 provides space for up to three hours of audio recording directly to its internal memory. Once captured, limitless creativity begins as you start to shape the audio on the fly and store your loops in one of the ninety-nine onboard memory locations. If that's not enough, the USB port lets you save your loops externally as well as import and export WAV files placing a world of killer loops and samples at your feet.
