SNAMM04: Boss Expand Phrase Recorder RC-20XL
Step on it - we've now got 16 minutes sample time.

The Boss RC-20XL Phrase Recorder gets a super-charged amount of memory, allowing up to 16 - yes SIXTEEN minutes of record time. 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 ample recording space is full. Never before has it been so easy to create a massive one-person band sound in real time. The RC-20XL picks up where the popular RC-20 leaves off, as it offers more recording time and more features, but at the same affordable 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. After you've dazzled the crowd with your layered masterpiece, bring it to a proper end with one of the RC-20XL's three Stop options. When you hit the pedal, you can either immediately stop the playback, let the phrase play until the end, or fade it out.
