NAMM – Boss Introduces RCX-20XL Loop Station

boss rc-20xlAt the NAMM 2004 Summer Session, Boss introduced the RC-20XL Loop Station .

Whether for use onstage or at home, the new RC-20XL allows musicians to create multi-layered performances in real time. Loops and riffs can be stacked repeatedly until the 16 minutes of recording space is full.

The RC-20XL picks up where the RC-20 leaves off, as it offers more recording time and more features, but at the same price as before. The RC-20XL inherits the same “hands-free” pedal operation from the RC-20: Record, Play, and Overdub can be done with the left pedal; your hands are free to play your instruments. But now you get 16 minutes of recording time to capture and store loops or one-shot phrases (approximately three times that of the RC-20), and you can work your way backward thanks to the new Undo function, a necessity if you make a mistake during overdub.

The RC-20XL has 11 memory tracks in which to store one-shot and/or looped phrases. During your performance, you can switch between the tracks with an optional FS-6 Dual Footswitch, or two FS-5U footswitches (momentary-type). The Undo function can be a useful and musical function for erasing your previous phrase and instantly layering a new one.
