The BOSS RC-202 Loop Station crams the renowned RC-505’s strong looping and multi-effects into a 2-track tabletop machine. The RC-202 also has the RC-505’s unique appearance and easy-to-use controls. The RC-202 is built for live performance, with four input effects and four track effects available at the same time, and loops that may be stored in real time for fluid creative expression. If you’re a performer, the RC-202’s foot control and MIDI capabilities are unrivaled, freeing up your hands to play your guitar, keyboard, or other instrument. The RC-202 is an extremely strong loop station designed for club performers, vocalists, keyboardists, and beatboxers.
For each of its stereo phrase tracks, the RC-202 has unique controls and animated status indications. This enables you to play two separate loops at once and swiftly control your performance with the press of a button. Simply modify your mix using the individual volume faders if you don’t like it. The RC-202 makes it simple to alter your sound while you perform, with a variety of built-in effects at your disposal. While you’re recording, use input effects to produce distinct, powerful sound characteristics, or use track effects to process loop playback in real time. The RC-202 offers global compression and master reverb effects for general processing.
The RC-202’s phrase memory function enables the recording of phrase track data and up to 64 distinct preset configurations. Before every performance, if you have a certain setup that you normally start with, you may store and remember your preferences using the User Set.
