Roland has announced the RC-300 Loop Station, the new flagship model in its industry-leading lineup of real-time phrase loopers.

Equipped with multitrack loop phrases, three hours of stereo recording time, built-in effects, enhanced real-time control options, USB, and much more, the RC-300 is a dream machine for the growing legions of instrumentalists and vocalists that incorporate live looping in their musical performances.

Roland RC-300

The RC-300 replaces the popular RC-50, improving on its powerful predecessor in nearly every way. Like the RC-50, it’s housed in an ultra-durable metal chassis that’s built to last, and offers 99 different memory locations, each with three independent stereo or mono loop phrases. But, the RC-300 ups the ante big time with three hours of recording and loop storage, more than seven times the amount available in the RC-50. The RC-300 also provides newly enhanced options for controlling loop phrases, including dedicated REC/DUB/PLAY and STOP footswitches for each phrase, an ALL START/STOP footswitch, and an expression pedal for real-time effects control.

RC-300 features

  • Three stereo tracks with dedicated footswitches and controls for each.
  • Dedicated fader per track.
  • Expression pedal for effects control in real time.
  • Up to three hours of internal recording and 99 onboard memories.
  • 16 onboard effects optimized for looping.
  • XLR Microphone input with phantom power.
  • USB storage; import/export WAV files.

The RC-300 is expected to ship in November with an MSRP of $768.50 USD.

    if the midi implementation on this doesn’t suck it will be pretty much a no-brainer to upgrade from the RC-50. otherwise I’m unsure.

      How would u implement the use of midi on the rc-300? ive got a moog slim phatty, does this mean that i can run the SP thru the rc300 and their timing will sync together?
