Super sound quality
Featuring best-in-class 32-bit AD/DA and 32-bit floating-point processing, RC-500 captures your personal sound with full fidelity and keeps loops crystal clear, even with multiple overdubs. And with 13 hours of stereo recording time, there's plenty of space for extended creative journeys.

Connect, loop and mix
With its versatile I/O and free-flowing interface, RC-500 is ready to support all your musical visions. Connect mono/stereo instruments and pedal effects, plus a mic to the dedicated XLR input complete with phantom power if needed. Use the two tracks independently for song-style composition or together for rich multi-track textures. The LCD backlight changes color to clearly show the current operation mode, while hands-on track faders and a mic level knob provide direct access to volume control as you loop.

Flexible creative control
Three onboard footswitches make it simple to control recording and playback, track switching and more. For expanded operation, you can connect up to two external footswitches for direct control of many assignable functions or an expression pedal for continuous adjustments. For more advanced rigs, the space-saving TRS MIDI I/O enables remote operation from MIDI switchers and foot controllers, plus MIDI clock sync with drum machines and DAWs.

Personalize your setup
RC-500's I/O and footswitches are configured for basic operations by default, but they can be reassigned in a variety of ways to meet your custom needs. Route left/right input sources to separate tracks or send guitar and vocals to independent outputs. Use the footswitches to turn effects on/off, start/stop rhythms and more. Custom assignments are saved along with phrase memories, letting you instantly reconfigure RC-500 for any application.

Energize performances with rhythms and Loop FX
Loaded with inspiring rhythms and evocative loop processing, RC-500 is primed to bring groove and color to all your looping adventures. Each of the 57 preset rhythms include A/B variations, while 16 different drum kits provide sounds to match any style. Designed for live performance, Loop FX like repeat, scatter and more infuse your loops with instant sonic energy. There's a cool reverse function, too, perfect for creating unique sonic flavors on demand.              

Capture, practice and perform
RC-500's 99 phrase memories let you store loops as fast as you create them, complete with rhythm and kit selections, audio settings and control assignments. Loop audio can be backed up to a computer via USB. And with WAV import via free Boss Tone Studio computer software, RC-500 becomes a central playback hub for lesson material, jam tracks or backing music for your next gig.
