Boss RC-1 Loop Station 1 Million Special Edition Looper, Black
The RC-1-BK is a special commemorative pedal that celebrates the sales of over one million Loop Stations to date. Based on the popular RC-1, the limited-edition RC-1-BK features a black finish with red lettering, and will be available in 2018 only. Other than the color, it’s identical to the standard RC-1, the top-selling model in the Loop Station lineup.
Housed in the famous BOSS compact pedal chassis, the RC-1 and RC-1-BK are ideally suited for guitarists, bassists, and other instrumentalists. The simple, direct interface makes it easy to capture loops, while a unique visual indicator clearly shows the loop cycle and operation status. These versatile pedals work with both mono and stereo setups, and offer up to 12 minutes of stereo recording. All basic looping functions are controlled with the integrated pedal switch, and external footswitches can be connected for instant access to extended functions while performing.
In 2018 - as BOSS launches a limited one-year run of the RC-1 in a head-turning black finish - the RC Loop Station series is still the beating heart of the looping scene. These are the pedals you'll hear on the seminal albums and find on the biggest stages. They're picked out by the most imaginative players around the world and praised by the looping movement's greatest exponents. Seventeen years and one million sales might feel like a milestone, but it's really just a momentary stopover. The RC revolution is only just getting started…
YOU’LL NEVER BE “OUT OF THE LOOP.”
Everyone always wants to be “in the loop,” but with other loopers, you may not have enough recording time to capture every phrase that you want for your masterpiece. With its 12 minutes of stereo recording time, the RC-1 has the most stereo recording time in its class.
IS THE RC-1 THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOU?
It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a concert touring professional. The RC-1 is a great choice for any guitarist, bassist or keyboardist concerned with usability and simplicity while having lots of fun!
WHAT ARE SOME APPLICATIONS FOR THE RC-1?
You can incorporate the RC-1 into your existing pedalboard or effects system. It’s also a great way to learn, practice or improve your playing by quickly and easily creating your own backing track to jam along with. You can also loop stereo instruments like synthesizers and have a ball playing along.
IS THAT NEW LOOP INDICATOR JUST EYE CANDY?
Well, yes and no. Sure, it’s cool to look at, but the new indicator on the RC-1 is also very innovative and useful. You can clearly and easily see the current status of the Rec/Overdub/Play modes. You can also switch the indicator to an alternate mode, which visually tracks your loop. During overdubbing and playback, the speed at which the indicator rotates directly corresponds to the length of the loop.
WHAT’S UP WITH THE STEREO INPUTS AND OUTPUTS?
Apparently, some other products are based on the belief that mono recording and playback is good enough for you. In this day and age, we here at BOSS believe that it’s not too much for you to expect a stereo looper. With stereo inputs and outputs, you can record and playback your creations in stereo, the way music was intended to be played, performed, and enjoyed.
WHY WOULD I WANT AN EXTERNAL FOOTSWITCH?
The optional FS-7 makes footswitching even simpler and easier! And, its compact size won’t take up much space on your pedal board. Pressing the “A” switch will stop the Rec/Overdub/Play mode. Hold down the “A” switch for two seconds or longer to erase the phrase. By pressing the “B” switch, you can easily undo or redo your phrase. It’s that easy!
