Powerful Looper with Big Performance Potential
The BOSS RC-505 Mk2 loop station takes the acclaimed tabletop looper to new levels of performance capability, implementing a slew of user-requested features to empower your creativity. Its premium signal path delivers amazing sound quality, with 32-bit AD/DA conversion and 32-bit floating-point processing. You have a ton of effects on tap, including 49 Input FX for processing incoming signals, and 53 Track FX for further manipulation of your looped phrases. And connectivity has been expanded, with dual XLR mic inputs (with phantom power for condenser mics), a pair of stereo line inputs, and three stereo line output pairs. Whether you're a multi-instrumentalist, a vocalist, a beatboxer, or any other type of loop artist, the BOSS RC-505 Mk2 is sure to nurture your sonic creativity.
Five stereo phrase tracks with independent controls
The RC-505 Mk2 offers individual controls for all five of its stereo phrase tracks. This allows you to play five different loops simultaneously while mixing and manipulating effects on the fly. Each track features dedicated record/overdub/play and stop buttons, allowing you to quickly control your performance with the touch of a button. And with ultra-rugged long-throw faders, you can make precise mix adjustments as you build up your set.
Versatile onboard effects
With an arsenal of built-in effects available at your fingertips, the RC-505 Mk2 makes it easy to modify your sound as you perform. Use the input effects to create unique sonic textures while you're recording, or employ track effects for real-time processing while your loops play back. For overall processing, the RC-505 Mk2 provides global compression and master reverb effects
Phrase storage and onboard rhythms
The phrase memory feature of the RC-505 Mk2 allows for the storage of up to 99 different playback and effects settings, as well as phrase track data. If you have a certain setup that you always begin with before every performance, you can save and recall your preferences through the User Set. Also built in to this powerful loop station are over 200 different rhythm patterns, with 16 different drum kits to choose from. You can use these either as backing tracks or as reference guides as you explore new compositions and arrangements.
