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.

Another BOSS hit! This iteration of the BOSS "RC" series is an absolutely fabulous pedal for any guitarist. No longer just for "one-man" acts, or stage curiosity (something I could never get the hang of), this is now the ultimate practice machine and a wonderful pallete for song writing!

Here's a brief rundown of the top features:

3 hours of total record time!
There are 99 "phrases" with 2 "tracks" per phase. The 3 hours can be divided any way you like among the phrases. You can put your entire band repertoire on the track's for playback. I dedicate a song to a phrase, keep the original recording on one of the tracks and record to the second track. The tracks can be individually leveled with the slide controls.

4 ways to input sounds!
Record an instrument line level(piano, guitar, bass, etc) into the recorder 1/4" jacks (mono or stereo). Record a source (phone, tablet, mp3 player) thru the AUX 1/8" jack (this is probably the easiest way to load up, e.g. I like to record from Spotify or YouTube into my looper). Unfortunately there is no way to control the input level of these 2 sources (only thru your play device). Third, you can record a vocal or mic'd instrument thru an XLR input (with Phantom power). There is a mic level control knob. Fourth and finally, with a USB to PC connection, you can drag-and-drop any .WAV file into the track folder structure (appears as a hard disc on Windows Explorer when you plug into PC). This is probably the easiest way to load up backing tracks (standard jazz, blues and rock progressions/songs) downloaded from the plethora of backing track sites on the internet.

Overdubs, over and over and over....again.

The instruction manual that ships with this pedal is in Japanese...you can download the English version from the Boss website. Also, it does not ship with an AC adapter, so you need to order that as well (or stock up on AA batteries...)

If your rc30 has a delay between going from loop to loop, it shouldn't. There's a firmware update, and they're up to 1.60 with the updates currently. That was a gripe I had about this thing that got resolved.

The only gripe I have is that the two tracks within each loop can't be switched outright ONoff or offON. There has to be an ONON part between 'switching' tracks. May I suggest that the manual not call this 'switching' tracks then, because you're not outright switching them? This is misleading. Yes, I can go back and forth between two loops, now that I've gotten the firmware update and there won't be any gap. But again, what it says in the manual implies something else, and I was led to believe that one track could be a verse, and the other a chorus. This is a minor setback. I was going to give this thing a 2 or 3 star review before I got that firmware update.

Why they can't make em right out the box, and we need these firmware updates though is beyond me. Why can't it be made right the first time?

All that being said, this is pretty typical stuff in todays world of pedals. And I would recommend this pedal, indeed.
