  • BOSS RC-505 Loop Station - Hands-On Looper for Modern Performers

    The RC-505 Loop Station from Roland is a live performance tool for loop artists, housed in a compact tabletop enclosure. It provides easy fingertip control of five stereo phrase tracks and various loop playback behaviors, while a choice of input and track effects deliver a wide range of real-time processing options.

    Independent record, overdub, play and stop buttons for each track allow for capturing and controlling loop performances, and mixing loop levels on the fly is easy using the dedicated volume faders. Each track can have its own playback mode (multi, single, one-shot, reverse, etc.) and tempo sync settings, providing an unlimited range of creative looping behaviors.

    Ninety-nine phrase memories provide storage for phrase track data, various playback and effects settings, and more. A combination of frequently used settings can be saved as a User Set. Eighty-five onboard rhythms offer backing for loop recording, with a large selection of odd-measure beats. The rhythm part can be routed to the rear-panel headphone jack to be used as a dedicated click track for monitoring.

    The unit offers an XLR microphone input with phantom power that can be used simultaneously with instrument inputs for connecting guitars or synthesizers. A stereo mini jack can connect a music player, smartphone, or other stereo devices. And a USB port provides communication with a computer for loop archiving, loading up phrases with backing tracks, or loading sounds for sampler-style triggering.

    The RC-505 also functions as a USB audio/MIDI interface, making it simple to integrate with DAW software for audio recording, MIDI sync, and more. Users can customize the real-time controls with up to eight different functions, and operate them in a variety of ways - with front-panel controls, an external expression pedal or foot switches, and/or various MIDI Control Change messages. The assignments are stored along with phrase memories.

  • Shure BETA58A - Supercardioid Dynamic Mic

    In the tradition of the SM58®, the Beta 58A dynamic microphone has become a top choice among vocalists and touring sound professionals.

    The Shure Beta 58A is a high-output supercardioid dynamic vocal microphone designed for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording. It maintains a true supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range. This insures high gain-before-feedback, maximum isolation from other sound sources, and minimum off-axis tone coloration. The Beta 58A has a shaped frequency response that is ideal for close-up vocals. The superb performance of this microphone is not affected by rough handling because of its rugged construction, proven shock mount system, and hardened steel mesh grille.

    Super-cardioid pattern remains uniform and symmetrical throughout their frequency range. This reduces off-axis coloration and feedback. Wide and smooth frequency response adds extra clarity
    Advanced electro-pneumatic shock mount design effectively minimizes transmission of handling or stand noise.
    Plug element pins are gold plated for durable and low-noise transfer.
    Humbucking coil permits use in strong hum fields produced by lighting

  • Auray MS-5230F Tripod Microphone Stand with Fixed Boom

    The Auray MS-5230F Tripod Microphone Stand with Fixed Boom features durable, steel construction. The 31.5" boom arm allows you to angle the mic however you need it.

The Auray MS-5230F mic stand collapses for easy transport.

  • BOSS FS-5U - Footswitch - Unlatch

    This is a momentary unlatching footswitch/pedal that works with either electronic keyboards as a sustain pedal, or for quickly engaging and disengaging effects processors. The pedal is only active for the duration of time that it is depressed, and an example of it's creative application would be the emphatic punctuation of specific musical phrases, during an instrumental solo, with a dramatic delay or reverb effect setting.
