Perform at the Speed of Inspiration

Combining song-based looping and organic rhythms in a compact package, the RC-10R brings fresh inspiration to live performances, songwriting sessions, and daily practice. This next-generation Loop Station is a real-time creation machine, enabling you to develop spontaneous music that moves and grooves with two unique song sections, intros/endings, and rhythm fills. Onboard controls and visual loop indicators provide easy, self-contained operation, while expanded control is possible with external switches and MIDI. A vast rhythm library is on hand to cover nearly any music genre, and you can even import your own rhythms to personalize the RC-10R for specific songs and styles.

Next-Generation Loop Station for Modern Song Performers
BOSS's famous Loop Station products are the leading loopers in the world, with a wide range of models that support the unique creative needs of all types of musicians. The RC-10R introduces a new breed of Loop Station that draws inspiration from popular modern performers who incorporate percussive rhythms with song-style looping. Designed for in-the-moment music creation, the RC-10R gives guitarists and singer/songwriters a unique, free-flowing tool for developing ideas and making stage performances more dynamic and compelling.

A Song-Based Looper and Smart Drum Machine, All in One
The RC-10R brings loops and rhythms together in the most sophisticated and interactive way yet. In contrast with the more basic guide rhythms in other Loop Stations, each of the RC-10R's rhythms have complete song structures with separate parts. The two-track loop engine works in a serial fashion and is perfectly synced to the rhythm, allowing you to capture independent song sections with their own unique rhythmic backing. Two fill variations bring natural energy when transitioning between sections, while intro and ending fills let you start and finish pieces in an organic way.

Expanded Control for Power Users
With its interactive displays and multi-function controls, the RC-10R is a standalone powerhouse. But some users crave even more control, and the RC-10R delivers. To start, there's a jack for connecting up to two footswitches or an expression pedal, providing extended control of stop, undo/redo, loop volume, and other functions. Going further, full MIDI I/O is provided on space-saving mini TRS jacks, opening up a multitude of direct-access functions and sync options with other MIDI devices.

I want to start this by saying that I don't want to bash Boss. They normally put out really good products and I was really hoping for this to be the best loop station. But it has a few glaring issues that just for me make it unusable. For starters, it appears they didn't design the pedal wholistically, but rather as two separate pedals crammed into one. So you have to manually set the looper and rhythm component to sync, which shows that they didn't design the two from the ground up together, but rather tacked them together. This wouldn't be a problem except that when you want to use the pedal and record a loop, then want to add drums, you have to stop playing the loop to sync the drums. This means the pedal's completely unuseable in a live performance setting! You really dropped the ball on this boss. :(

Now that I matched the RC10R with the GT-1000 I am in looping bliss. This combination works beauty for the MIDI control and tempo sync with the drums and GTK modulation FX. Anyhow ...I also discovered how easy it is use the flexible routing in the GTK for Ambient looping. Try this; Use the stereo FX loop on the GT for your stereo RC10R looper. Then record loops with desired FX from the GT. When it is routed back in you can run it through more of the GTK FX and or the GTK looper and experiment like a mad man. So easy to change the order and routing of things it is crazy! I setup my GTK presets to scroll up and down one at a time with an FS-7 so I can free up all of the GTK switches for MIDI control of the RC looper. For song based looping the GTK is also great with the acoustic guitar and bass simulations you can pull of. Cuts down on FX pedals and simplifies your whole looping setup after you get your head around programming the GTK.
