Boss RC-300 Loop Station
The Boss RC-300 Loop Station lets you play, record, and alter three separate simultaneous stereo phrase tracks with multiple overdubs on each track and includes rhythm patterns and onboard effects, allowing you to build intricately-textured soundscapes from layer on layer of looped phrases.
The Boss RC-300 has so many features, you expect to see a foot switch or knob labeled "kitchen sink". But for live players who like to improvise over a more heavily-textured soundscape, or composers who need more power than basic loop pedals can offer, the RC-300 is Boss's best answer.

Multi-Track Looping with Overdubs
Eight footswitches control recording and playback of three simultaneous stereo phrase tracks. The RC-300 also allows you to record multiple overdubs on each of those tracks. The number of looped phrases you can layer on top of each other is almost ridiculous. If you're a live looper, you can back yourself with a small chamber ensemble, or a full rock band!
Speaking of effects, you can process your tracks and external-input signals with the RC-300’s expressive onboard effects, including Transpose, Flanger, Phaser, Modulator, vocal effects, Delay and Distortion. A dedicated LOOP FX footswitch is provided for instant activation of the onboard effects. Control the effects parameters in real time with the Expression pedal for hands-free creativity onstage. You can apply the effects to any single track as well as to the entire mix, expanding your creativity and musical expression.
The Loop Station also includes a built-in drum machine with 83 rhythm types you can use to lay down your beat, all sampled on real drums! To get you up and running right away, the RC-300 comes preloaded with audio backing tracks (including bass tracks, piano tracks, etc.) for instant play-along performance and fun.
