Offers 12 minutes of stereo recording time and flexible external footswitch options.

The BOSS RC-1 Loop Station gives musicians an easy way to build multiple layers and loops. With 12 minutes of stereo recording time, you have the space to capture an extended jam session or build up a song idea from scratch. Connecting to your amp, pedals, synths and other gear via stereo inputs and outputs, the RC-1 Loop Station provides flexibility for any setup. An intuitive single-button interface and LED indicator show your loop status at a glance, making this looper pedal easy and fun to operate.

Simple Controls, Complex Possibilities
A single footswitch is all you need to start, stop and undo your loops. The 24-segment LED ring indicator displays the current mode and loop status, changing colors and rotation speed based on the RC-1's status. While the controls are straightforward, the creative potential is vast. Build up layers, play call and response, create ambient soundscapes, or use it as a compositional tool to develop song ideas. The RC-1 Loop Station gives you a powerful looping platform without complication.

12 Minutes of Stereo Looping
With 12 minutes of recording time in stereo, the RC-1 Loop Station provides ample space for extended jams, layered compositions and full songs. Whatever musical idea comes to mind; you'll have room to capture it. And your last recorded loop stays in memory even after powering off, so you can revisit your ideas and continue building on them.

Connect with Your Whole Rig
The RC-1 Loop Station features stereo inputs and outputs, so you can utilize it with stereo amp and effects setups as well as a range of instruments like synths and electronic drums. An optional footswitch (not included) gives you hands-free control for stage use. Power it with a 9V battery or optional power supply.

Unleash Your Creativity
The BOSS RC-1 Loop Station provides an inspiring yet approachable tool for composition, practice and performance. Novices and pros alike rely on the RC-1's simplicity and versatility. Now it's your turn - plug in, hit record and unleash your creativity with 12 minutes of looping power.
