The Boss RC-505 is the most powerful RC series loop station pedal to date. It boasts five loop tracks, each with level faders and separate record, play, and dub buttons. Like its RC brethren, the RC-505 contains an array of effects, including reverb, delay, and more modern conveniences such as beat slicing. Rounding out this already robust feature set are a total of 99 phrase memory slots, 85 rhythm patterns, and a variety of connection options—all of which make it ideal for a variety of divergent applications and musical styles.
