About this deal

The RC-300 was the flagship Boss Loop Station model for many years, with expanded looping and input/output options for crafting complex loop sequences. The RC-300 lets you record for up to three hours directly to its internal memory, adding effects as you go.

To get you up and running right away, the RC-300 comes preloaded with audio backing tracks (including bass tracks, piano tracks, etc. The only weakness worth mentioning is that it is sometimes difficult to navigate the menu when it comes to particular effects. My new reasoning is that one of the caps on the motherboard used or the COGs "booster circuit" is wonky.My second mistake: Not negotiating to that regard (And generally not being the type of person to do this sort of thing in the first place).

So Threeleggedyoyo, what you're telling me is that both units are great, but the 300 is superior whenever there are differences? I'm here in hopes that I can find help with a fix, replacement, or hack -- but ultimately I suppose some sympathy and/or laughs for another sucker of a shyster and proprietary obsolescence.On the pros side, the functionalities, the 3 tracks, the volume pedal, the versatility of the switches since everything is remappable to your taste and the number of input/output options. To keep your loops tight and in time, you can play along with one of the cool rhythm patterns in the RC-300’s onboard library as you record; the Loop Quantize feature helps you having your recordings looped in time.

This metal rod differs from guitar to guitar (some guitars such as classical guitars don't usually have a truss rod! This setup require more cables and takes up more mixer space, but it allows the sound engineer to mix the sound on a per track basis - too bad input routing is not as good as this. Each can be independently controlled, and you can stack the loops for a bigger, more all-encompassing sound. The RC-50, on the other hand, can sync to most any Midi source that sends a Midi START message when it goes on. But overall what the 300 is offering (while still also offering the 4 regular expansion momentary pedals) is more accessible, and there's more you can do with it.

Bernhoft was using the RC-50 Loopstation, which was already discontinued, so I looked for a good alternative.
