Rocking Roland RC-505 Loopstation Looks Cool

New gear announced on Roland Connect      04/04/13

Quite possibly the coolest product video from Roland in years, the new RC-505 Loopstation was pre-announced via the Roland Connect website moments ago.

The new RC-505 looper gets a groovey demo from a brilliant beatboxer who I am ashamed to say I don't recognize. The RC-505 offers five stereo tracks of looping with input effects including what sounds like a synth pitch tracker and filter.

  • Tabletop Loop Station that can be operated with the hands, perfect for beatboxers, vocalists, and club performers
  • Five simultaneous stereo phrase tracks, with dedicated controls and independent volume faders
  • Wide range of Input FX and Track FX for processing loops, including DJ and sampler-style effects
  • Independent play mode and tempo sync settings enable a flexible combination of track behaviors and advanced performance options
  • 99 phrase memories, each containing five phrase tracks, custom effects/playback settings, and more
  • 85 onboard rhythm patterns, including odd-measure beats
  • External control via MIDI and optional footswitches or expression pedal
  • USB for phrase import/export with computers; USB audio/MIDI functionality for integration with DAW software
  • XLR mic input with phantom power, mono/stereo instrument inputs, and stereo AUX input

ETA June 2013, price £529

You can be sure we'll be paying a visit to the Roland booth for a closer look at the Musik Messe.
