Question about Boss Rc 50

Can i add more memory to the rc50 loop pedal

I record drum/ bass and synth loops into logic and then send them to the rc50 loop pedal, i had 50 seconds of recording time left so i added a new track which left me 25 seconds of recording time, only for the loop pedal to tell me i had run out of recording time, i took another track out to make more room only for the loop pedal to tell me there is STILL no memory left, if i reset the loop pedal by taking all the tracks out to reset it, will that work to gather all the memory up and give me 200MB back again. Or is there any way i can add more memory to the rc50 loop pedal? Any way at all??? Please help.....

You can make a backup on your pc and load back Default settings or restore to default settings. Normally you should have I quote ' with up to 49 minutes of mono recording time (or 24 minutes in stereo), the RC-50 can function as a song recorder as well as a looper'

I have the RC300 which has 3 hrs recording time. But when i reach the limit. I make a backup and load back in a initial default setup which I have downloaded somewhere. But you can also restore to default from the unit itself. Hope this helps

SOURCE: guide on RC-50 won't turn off

First, you need to select one of the patches called "init patch", it won't have a drumbeat on it. Then, turn the guide on again, then all the way off. Even if the knob's in the off position when you go to the patch, it'll turn itself on again by default. There's a light there that says "beat quantize" that you want to be off, or it'll cut your loop to the length of whatever beat it's set to. If you want to change the default, turn the beat quantize off, then press "write" and write the new patch. Hope that helps.

Peavey classic chorus 1991 -how do you connect a distortion pedal the power amp jacks at rear tried affects loop in front bid drop in power-do you connect same way as effects loop with send /return


Pedals operate at a different level then rack units that go in the effects loop.
It needs to go in front of the amp input. Guitar to pedal to amp input.

Tip

RC looper and DR880 syncing.


RC-50 & DR-880 Setup
Rather than using the RC-50 to change patches on the DR-880, I have connected an FS-6 footswitch to both the RC-50 & DR-880. This gives me control of both units, I can select up & down through the patches easily.
Use a dual TRS connector and 2 stereo "y" cables connected to ports 1,2 & 3.4 on both units.
Once connected, you will need to assign the control function for each control port. I assigned Patch Decrease to CLT 1,2 & Patch Increase to CLT 3,4 on both units.
I then connected a MIDI cable from the RC--u control of start/stop & tempo via the RC-50 footswitches.

I have a gallien kreuger backline 600 bass amp head . and I'm wondering how to use the effects loop send and return jacks with a pedal or processor ?


Run a cable from the Send to the effects and a cable from the effects to the Return. This would be in place of running a cable from the bass guitar to the effects to the amp input.

When I turn on my BOSS RC-20XL Loop Station the reverse, tap tempo, write, exit and one shot phase start to blink rapidly and I cannot get them back to normal. Therefore, I am unable to use my loop...


Hi. I had the same problem and fixed it by clearing all the phrases. An explanation of how to do this is below (written by someone else, not me) But, expect your guide beat to now sound like a fuzz instead of a drum. This really sucks and there is apparantly no fix for the guide sound except to send it back to Boss. Good luck.

1. Start by selecting Phrase 1.

(if the 'REVERSE' or 'AUTO START' are lit press them off.)

2. Select 'INST & MIC' by pressing 'MODE'

3. Hold down 'EXIT' and 'AUTO START' together - at the same time, this should light up the green LED for 'LOOP PHASE'

4. Hold down 'WRITE' and 'EXIT' together
then hold 'WRITE' on its own
then 'WRITE' and 'EXIT' together again...as if you were clearing a phrase.

they should light up in red and flash, if not try a combo of section 4.

5. Repeat on all Phrases 1 - 11.

Fostex MR 8 HD\CD adding treble and bass?


It APPEARS that the MR8 does NOT include the ability to EQ. They have delay effects and the like built in, but no EQ.

To answer your question then, you would need to have an EXTERNAL EQ unit and loop the vocal through that unit to do EQ to do it right.

When mastering, the "powerful/natural/and bright would be filters that will emphasize the bass (powerful) or the treble (bright) but these are really not EQ's and you can ONLY choose one at a time.

Beggining of loop missing on FIRST playback only, on Boss RC-50.


Ok, solved this problem by visiting roland U.S. site as the help offered in this country is useless. The instructions given by email would not have worked even after the update was installed. Luckily, there are instructions that come with the download. If you have same problem as me go to http://www.rolandus.com/products/productdetails.php?ProductId=772&tab=downloads&skip=true

and update the opperating system on the RC-50 to RC-50 System Update Version 1.01.

Then hold loop sync and phrase 2 button (think it was phrase 2) to change it to sound priority mode. Then it will play back correctly what you recorded on the first loop, rather than missing the first beat.

Am v.happy I have found this, as after much searching I can't find any other loopers out there that offer 3 seperate loop tracks and the ability to switch between them effectively. Plus, it's a very convenient size, better than a load of rackmounted stuff to haul around.

However.....

Another problem..

When hitting the reverse switch ( I assigned both external footswitch and the onboard Tempo pedal to reverse) the change is not instanteaneous. There is a second or so delay before it plays in reverse. Not a problem for most, I suppose, but I have a piece that switches rythmicaly between playing forward and reverse which means hitting a pedal in time and reverse/forwards changing immediately. I think they could do with another software update to solve this. Now I have to keep room in my enormous pedal board for the old rc-20, as that does the reverse as it should - when you hit the flippin switch!
