About this deal
By having the RC-1 set to this alternative mode, users can explore musical ideas without capturing the audio straight after the initial recording.
BOSS - Loop Station
Boss’s most user-friendly offering in its industry-standard Loop Station line boasts a big ol’ 'clock face' dial to help you keep track of how far along your current loop it is, with just a single level control to worry about. One of the features that I love is visual display of the loop length which is extremely helpful, especially if you don't have any previous experience with looper pedal.Overdub - This is the name for any layers that you would like to stack on top of the original recording. You’re able to fade a track in or out as you see fit instead of only being able to start/stop the track with the footswitch.
BOSS RC-1 Compact Loop Station Looper Pedal
BOSS really did come along early to the looping party and dominate the market with a few well placed and effective looping devices. You can see you have important features such as microphone input, MIDI control, external footswitch control, etc. The ever-popular Loop Station range has seen the likes of the RC-30 and RC-300 become industry-standard pedals on stages around the world.
Some said it couldn't be done because it would be too fiddly to work but those naysayers will have to eat some humble pie because not only have BOSS managed to cram an effective stereo looper into a compact pedal, it's also become their best selling pedal of the last couple of years!

However, if you do find yourself longing for these features, then it's worth looking at the RC-5 or RC-500. There’s a lot more functionality under the hood too, but you’ll need to add an external footswitch to get the most out of this looper.If you’re stuck choosing between two pedals (eg: between RC-3 and RC-5), I generally recommend the higher model (eg: RC-5). The RC-3 isn’t quite dated, but it feels that way when you compare it against the RC-5’s RGB LED screen. You don’t need to guess whether your looper is in recording/playback mode as each mode is displayed in a different way using green or red lights.
