Sonic LAB: Boss RC-505MKII - Enhanced Loop Station

Have they really improved a classic?      16/11/21

The original Boss RC-505 is seen by many as the pinnacle of loopstations, with countless musicians using it as a gateway to success during the 15+ years it's been available. Surely time for an update then? 

Here's the RC-505 MKII then, with expanded IO, improved audio quality, increased FX (4 input, 4 track), more algorithms, increased record time - 13hrs over 3, bounce feature, Mark back and undo, more rhythms, way deep button and controller assignments.

The RC-505 MKII really does build on the original while keeping the essential functions the same - that is five stereo tracks of loopers, with tempo detection, time stretch and lots of control.

Editor Nick is a first time RC user and takes us through the essential functions, and gives his verdict.

The RC-505 MKII is available now (in limited quantities) priced at £499/$599 street price.
