The RC-202 Loop Station packs the powerful looping and multi-effects of BOSS’s venerable RC-505 into a 2-track tabletop unit. The RC-202 also shares the RC-505’s distinctive aesthetics and its simple hands-on controls. The RC-202 is primed for live performance – four input effects and four track effects are available simultaneously, and loops can be saved in real time, allowing for fluid creative expression. And if you’re a performing musician, the RC-202’s foot control and MIDI capabilities are second to none, leaving your hands free for playing your guitar, keyboard, or other instrument. The RC-202 is a powerful loop station for club performers, vocalists, keyboardist, or beatboxers.

BOSS RC-202 Loop Station at a Glance:
Two stereo phrase tracks with independent controls
Versatile onboard effects offer easy sound enhancement
Phrase storage and onboard rhythms

Two stereo phrase tracks with independent controls

The RC-202 offers individual controls and animated status indicators for both of its stereo phrase tracks. This allows you to quickly control your performance with the touch of a button, and to play two different loops simultaneously. If you don’t like your mix, simply adjust it with the individual volume faders. These individual controls make for endless creative possibilities.

Versatile onboard effects offer easy sound enhancement

With an arsenal of built-in effects available at your fingertips, the RC-202 makes it easy to modify your sound as you perform. Use input effects to create unique, robust sound qualities while you’re recording, or employ track effects for real-time processing of loop playback. For overall processing, the RC-202 provides global compression and master reverb effects. Featuring large, easy-to-grab knobs for adjusting parameters and dedicated panel buttons to turn effects on and off, this loop station is a versatile asset to your live performance.

Phrase storage and onboard rhythms

The phrase memory feature of the RC-202 allows for the storage of up to 64 different preset settings, as well as phrase track data. If you have a certain setup that you always begin with before every performance, you can save and recall your preferences through the User Set. Also built into this powerful loop station are 17 different rhythm patterns. At Sweetwater, we’ve used these both as backing tracks and as reference guides while recording more advanced phrases.
