The Boss RC-505 is one of the most intuitive and groundbreaking loop pedals that BOSS have created to date. A key feature of this loop station is the fact that it is a hand controlled loop pedal aimed at performing DJ's, MC's and club performers.

The Flagship Tabletop Looper

Its new desktop design is fully back-lit for low light situations, features 5 individual loop tracks and packs more effects than BOSS have managed to fit into any looper we've seen in the past. The RC-505's individual stereo tracks all come equipped with independent record, overdub, play and stop buttons giving the user that extra state of control. This is a crucial feature to have in a live performing environment.

Key Features

  • Tabletop Loop Station that can be operated with the hands, perfect for beatboxers, vocalists, and club performers
  • Five simultaneous stereo phrase tracks, with dedicated controls and independent volume faders
  • Wide range of Input FX and Track FX for processing loops, including DJ and sampler-style effects
  • Independent play mode and tempo sync settings enable a flexible combination of track behaviors and advanced performance options
  • 99 phrase memories, each containing five phrase tracks, custom effects/playback settings, and more
  • 85 onboard rhythm patterns, including odd-measure beats
  • External control via MIDI and optional footswitches or expression pedal
  • USB for phrase import/export and DAW integration with computers
  • XLR mic input with phantom power, mono/stereo instrument inputs, and stereo aux input

Version 2.0 update brings even more creative power to the flagship tabletop looper. Simultaneous effects can now be used in the Input FX and Track FX sections, and a number of new effects types are included. Many refinements to the loop functionality offer a multitude of ways to enhance and improve live performances. The control target functions have been greatly expanded as well, providing a wealth of external control options for musicians who loop with guitars, keyboards, and other instruments.

Advanced Features

  • Up to three effects can be used simultaneously in both the Input FX and Track FX sections
  • New effects types, including Ring Modulator, Slow Gear, Pitch Bend, and others
  • Extended parameters added to previous effects, including dotted and triplet note values for tempo syncing
