    I perform solo, singing and playing guitar.

    The best thing is you can store 3 hours of loops which means you can record a whole evenings backing tracks.

    I've been using this unit for a while and overall think it is a great item. The thing is solid and technically adequate for all but the most sophisticated mixers. For practicing and saving those interesting phrases you stumble upon, it's just what a musician needs. There are some great features: mic input (XLR plugs right in!) and USB so you can save your licks and phrases to any DAW program on your computer or iPad. And 3 full hours of recording time! NICE!!
    It's also a nice size. For traveling it's easy to pack. I use a Korg px5d and run it through this baby for great modeling and effects. Which brings me to the single item that keeps it from getting 5 stars..... There are SOOOO many great effects out there: phlangers, reverbs, tremelos, phasers, vibratos, rotaries, choruses, etc etc etc. When they picked the 5 on-board effects for this neat unit, they chose to go with the least useful and most sophomoric. To me it's a real waste of what could have been a most useful function. They must have consulted 8 year-olds playing with transformer toys or video games rather than serious musicians.
    I compensate by using the effects on my Korg and the Vox amp I run this through.
    The optional dual foot pedal is recommended. And you'll need to get the AC adaptor or you'll really gobble up batteries. There is no on/off switch, so if you forget to unplug the RC 30 from your amp while in battery mode they'll run down fast.
    Roland has another great product here.........they nearly hit a home run!

    I haven't had this thing long enough to give a decent review--though so far I love it--but I wanted to point out some great videos that will give you a feel for how to use it. Boss doesn't provide much in their manual or online, and most of the videos I've seen on YouTube or elsewhere are more about the performer than about the RC-30. However, Josie Charlwood has several videos on YouTube that include a separate camera aimed at her RC-30 and other effect pedals. You can see how effortlessly she switches tracks--without any of that 1/4 second delay some other reviewers mentioned. I suspect some operator error on their part; certainly I've had a few problems synching, but that's because I'm new to it. Anyway: check out those YouTube videos, then look for some of her other videos with the RC-30. I think you'll be convinced, as I was, that this is a great device. (And that she's a fabulous performer with a great future ahead of her!)

    Oops--I tried to leave a link here, but Amazon wouldn't let me. Just do a search for Josie Charlwood RC-30 and you should find a half-dozen or so videos with the camera on the RC-30.

    Read the in depth reviews on musicians friend, lots of details there, and very positive reviews. This is my first looper and I am impressed with the features in this pedal. Be prepared to spend some time learning how to use it and make the most of the features, especially if you are new to loopers like me. My playing has improved since I got this box - I can lay down some tracks and practice licks and riffs over and over again. The best thing is you can store 3 hours of loops which means you can record a whole evenings backing tracks. I can even run my computer to the aux input and record some prerecorded backing tracks directly into the looper. Havent used the USB yet, will get to that eventually!

    Its expensive but well worth the money. IF you dont need the dual track feature the cheaper RC3 might be a better option. But for $100 extra I think the RC30 is worth it.

    Surprisingly easy to start using. The timing is the only tricky thing but that's natural.

    Great new toy. Highly recommended for playing over yourself and laying down ideas with multiple instruments.

    I perform solo, singing and playing guitar. This pedal allows for some interesting creations to be born. Simple to use and the FS 6 pedal by Boss only makes it easier to switch tracks, bank select and que in effects. I highly recommend this loop station for any musician looking to incorporate more to your songs, whether performing live or jamming in your bedroom.

    Absolutely love this pedal. I used to be in the band scene and totally miss jamming with friends and performing live. This pedal allows me to play like a one man band. Yes, there are computer based equipment you could find and use which does the same thing or even better but this thing is a plug and play gear you'd really want to have connected to your instrument effects line. Two track multiple overdubs give you a lot of freedom to be creative in writing riffs, leads and track mixes. Sound quality is good. Only challenge I had so far is when I have to switch back and forth between tracks multiple times... so I guess I will be one of those who eventually ended up getting an FS-6 dual pedal to address this. Go get it! Totally lots of fun :)

    My guitar instructor has helped me tremendously with this pedal. We've laid down multiple training loops which has advanced my playing significantly. This is a powerful unit with a tremendous feature set.
