Boss RC600 Floor Based Loop Station
The Boss RC-600 puts zero limits on your creativity. Even the most complex and sophisticated arrangements in your head can be easily brought to life by using the six tracks in series or parallel for different musical structures. Process sounds before and after capture with class-leading Boss effects, including time-based effects that automatically sync with loops and the built-in rhythms, and tap into unprecedented control with nine footswitches and the ability to instantly recall different assignments with three pedal modes.
RC-600 isn't rigid by any means; you can easily configure the looper to perfectly suit your personal workflow! The footswitches and pedal modes feature a multitude of assignable CTL parameters that include track operations, FX and rhythm functions, tap tempo, and more. In some cases, you can use a single footswitch to trigger different functions with a press, hold, or double-click.
Two control jacks are available for external footswitches or expression pedals, and each has its own dedicated set of parameters. There's also an assign function to set up 16 different controls for hardware and MIDI operation. And with seven top-level screen variations, you can get real-time feedback on a variety of current operations!
With 49 Input FX and 53 Track FX to choose from, your RC-600 performances will always be evocative and exciting. Versatile effects from the vast BOSS library are available, including a guitar-to-bass simulator, and a wide range of powerful vocal FX. The Track FX also include cool DJ-style effects like Beat Scatter, Vinyl Flick, and others. Up to four Input FX and Track FX can be used at once, and you can store banks of four in each section for quick recall.
Packed with flexible connectivity, the RC-600 is ready for any loop performance style. You have two XLR mic inputs plus two mono/stereo input pairs for guitars, keyboards, drum machines, and various audio devices, along with an input mixer with two mic compressors and dedicated channel EQs. Three stereo output pairs, a headphones output, and an output mixer are also available, complete with assignable routing options and master reverb and compressor effects. It’s even possible to use the audio I/O to patch in external effects to process one or more loops. And via USB, you can integrate with computer DAWs and use BOSS Tone Studio to import and export WAV loops.
The RC-600 features a wide selection of organic rhythms with dynamic real-time functionality. There are over 200 patterns in styles ranging from rock, pop, and acoustic to Latin, jazz, and electronica, and each includes four variations to keeps things interesting. Intros and endings are also available if you want them, plus automatic fills to transition between sections. Can’t find what you need?
