4.0 additional note not mentioned for RC20 users.

By Timothy Minarchi

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Boss RC-30 Loop Station:

I loved my RC20...but after many years and spilled beers it was time to upgrade, so I took a chance on the RC30 figuring, like the other reviewers it would be a major step up. I also find it to be a few steps forward, a few back. For anyone else in my predicament seeking a replacement for their RC20 but slightly paranoid about the additional functions of the RC30, it should be noted (and is on the last page of the manual) that by turning the unit on while holding down the LOOPFX button you can revert the pedal functions of the RC30 to the exact functions of the RC20. Bouncing patches from the RC20 is indeed tricky, however although burdensome once completed now it's something you can back up eliminating the fear I've had for years of a total failure. Also, the additional time and patches are...for someone who is used to the admittedly limited memory of the RC20...well, HUGE. ...they really could have spared us the stereo i/o and skipped the rhythm volume knob and instead routed it to the same line in as the RC20....that would have been a MAJOR plus.

Ready Rock

Comments about Boss RC-30 Loop Station:

Pro - After I applied the firmware everything about this pedal is absolutely amazing. ROCK | BLUES | Alternative | what ever i want to play this is MY BAND IN A BOX. Phrases switch seamlessly without any type of delay. I use the Left channel on the device for guitar, drums and Live Guitar and my right channel for bass. This way my sound can be separated out and given unique volumes on any PA for one hell of a live mix!!! Con - MAKE SURE TO UPGRADE THE FIRMWARE to 1.4. When i purchased my pedal it had 1.2 on it once upgrade not a single complaint.

Not so bad as it Looks !

By Angel Ramirez

from Maryland

Comments about Boss RC-30 Loop Station:

I have just purchased the unit from guitar center and have tested the unit in all the features and capabilities. To my opinion is not a bad unit to be used as intended.The only problem observed is the timelapse when switching phrases. The sound quality is excellent, and when used with a mike with phantom power you get very good results. Very flexible when switching tracks if used together with external dual pedals. RC-30 provides a rhythm track, consisting of 10 patterns at 4/4 and also selectable 3/4 time in each one of these. The memory saving via USB is a plus for me, and if used the correct way , it will store all your creations with rhythm track included. If you think this unit is not powerfull, you must visit YouTube for excellent sample videos recorded with this unit. I understand , that if used properly, you can get excellent results out of this unit.

taken for a loop

By Leif Eriksen

from Glendora, Calif.

Comments about Boss RC-30 Loop Station:

The loopstation was mainly designed for a musican who wants to create/play songs and all the parts quickly within minutes. A sort of band in a box/multi track recorder. Which it ought to be well suited for. My own interest was in creating loops as in short (max of a few seconds) that repeat as a groove. This unit is very good for creating a multi layered loop. After that the loopstation is very limited. Only five effects are included and no altering of pitch (which would also alter tempo) is available. Many years ago, Boss had a small pedal that was a delay and sampler which had that function but no overdubbing feature.

Poor substitute for the Boss RC-20

By BestofBoston9

  • Excellent Sound Quality


  • Difficult To Use

    Comments about Boss RC-30 Loop Station:

    I have been very happy with my RC-20 for many years. Unfortunately it started to fail so I picked up an RC-30 as a replacement. What a mistake. I returned it after a few hours. It is missing the basic functionality of the RC-20 that I love and use. It does not let you record a phrase, play it back with or without overdubs, then delete it and record again under pedal control. There is no pedal control delete function! And if you use the alternate track to record a second part, it doesn't let you playback just the new part. It insists on starting the first track 2 seconds later over the second track. Makes the RC-30 completely useless for live multi-tracking. I managed to hunt down an RC-20XL even though it looks like they are discontinued and will hopefully have that as an adequate replacement for my RC-20.


    Great stuff!
