The BOSS RC-3 Loop Station gives you a powerful effects unit conveniently housed in a compact pedal. With the RC-3, you can enjoy up to 3 hours of recording time, store 99 custom loops, a “real-drums” rhythm guide, and USB 2.0 compatibility. All that functionality in a small and compact BOSS stompbox.
Offering 3 hours of stereo recording, you can record directly to the internal memory of your BOSS RC-3. So you can record all those long phrases without having to worry about running out of space. While the 99 memory locations let you save as many ideas as you can create. On top of that, if you’re a guitarist who wants to incorporate external effects; you’ll love the true stereo I/O on the RC-3.
Using the Auto Recording feature, the RC-3 starts recording the minute you start playing. Or, as soon as you start a connected audio player. While Count-In mode gives you a bar of rhythm to get ready before the recording starts. Undo and Redo as you go, the sky’s the limit when the RC-3 gives you 3 hours of recording time!
Additionally, to keep your loops tight and in time, you can play along with the onboard rhythm patterns in the RC-3’s library. Including Rock, Pop, Funk, Shuffle, and Latin. You can even specify a specific time signature. Then, when you save a phrase the rhythm and time signature will also be saved.
Finally, with the BOSS RC-3 you can connect to your computer via USB. Allowing you to back-up your precious RC-3 recordings for safekeeping. You can also load your favourite WAV files directly to the RC-3.
In addition to recording your guitar or bass performances and turning them into playable loops; you can also record other external stereo audio sources via the RC-3’s AUX IN. Sound from a digital-audio player connected to the AUX input, for example, can easily be recorded and made into a loop.
Overall, the BOSS RC-3 is a powerful, and compact effects pedal. Perfect for adding another dimension to your recordings.
