Tap into unprecedented control with nine footswitches and the ability to instantly recall different assignments with three pedal modes. And if that's not enough, you can go even further with RC-600's rich external control options.
RC-600 is highly customizable, allowing you to configure the looper to perfectly suit your personal workflow. The footswitches and pedal modes feature a multitude of assignable parameters that include track operations, effects and rhythm functions, tap tempo and more. In some cases, you can use a single footswitch to trigger different functions with a press, hold or double-click. Two control jacks are available for external footswitches or expression pedals, and each has its own dedicated set of parameters. There's also an assign function to set up 16 different controls for hardware and MIDI operation. And with seven top-level screen variations, you can get realtime feedback on a variety of current operations.
Powerful effects for inspired performances
With 49 Input FX and 53 Track FX to choose from, your RC-600 performances will always be evocative and exciting. There's a world of sonic colors on tap, including versatile effects from the vast Boss library, a guitar-to-bass simulator and a wide range of powerful vocal effects. The Track FX also include cool DJ-style effects like Beat Scatter, Vinyl Flick and others. Up to four Input FX and Track FX can be used at once and you can store banks of four in each section for quick recall, along with toggle or momentary button settings for each type.
Connect and mix
Packed with versatile connectivity, RC-600 is ready for any loop performance style. You have two XLR mic inputs plus two mono/stereo input pairs for guitars, keyboards, drum machines and various audio devices, along with an input mixer with two mic compressors and dedicated channel EQs. Three stereo output pairs, a headphones output and an output mixer are also available complete with assignable routing options and master reverb and compressor effects. It's even possible to use the audio I/O to patch in external effects to process one or more loops. And via USB you can integrate with computer DAWs and use Boss Tone Studio to import and export WAV loops.
Move and groove
RC-600 features a wide selection of organic rhythms with dynamic realtime functionality. There are over 200 patterns in styles ranging from rock, pop and acoustic to Latin, jazz and electronica, and each includes four variations to keeps things interesting. Intros and endings are also available if you want them, plus automatic fills to transition between sections. Can't find what you need? Then import your own SMF rhythms over USB with the dedicated RC Rhythm Converter software. And with 16 different kits, you can groove with everything from light percussion and brush tones to heavy rock and electronic dance sounds.
RC-600 also offers many new creative details inspired by longtime Loop Station users. Three different overdub modes are available – including one that lets you replace the current sound in a loop track while it's playing – plus a new Bounce In function for capturing multiple tracks into one. Undo/redo has also been enhanced with Mark Back, which lets you instantly jump back to a previous loop state that you've flagged. Half and double speed options are also on hand, along with the ability to adjust the overall playback speed with or without pitch change. Additionally, it's now possible to assign the Auto Rec function to a footswitch for quick activation whenever you need it.
