Overview

Advanced compact looper with class-leading sound quality, 99 phrase memories, 57 rhythms and more.

Step up to the BOSS RC-5 Loop Station and prime your pedalboard with maximum looping range. Capture sound with premium 32-bit quality, navigate parameters and monitor loop status with the backlit LCD and tap into expanded operation via the control jack and TRS MIDI I/O. With over 50 rhythms, 13 hours of stereo recording, 99 phrase memories and more, the compact BOSS RC-5 puts a deep well of musical power at your feet. 

Superior Sound Quality
Featuring best-in-class 32-bit AD/DA and 32-bit floating-point processing, the RC-5 captures your personal sound with full fidelity and keeps loops crystal-clear, even with multiple overdubs. With 13 hours of stereo recording time, there’s plenty of space for extended creative journeys. 

Window to Your World
The RC-5 features the most advanced interface available in any compact looper pedal. The LCD lets you keep an eye on loop status as you perform, with a backlight that changes color to indicate recording, overdub and playback states. Coupled with the multi-function parameter knob, it’s quick and easy to navigate rhythms, kits, system settings and more in the heat of the moment.

Deep Control
The BOSS RC-5’s versatile pedal switch controls all looping functions—record, overdub, play, stop and undo/redo. But deeper control is also supported if you need it. Connect up to two external footswitches for direct control of many assignable functions, or an expression pedal for continuous adjustments. Players with advanced systems will love the TRS MIDI I/O, which saves space and enables remote operation from MIDI switchers and foot controllers, plus MIDI sync with drum machines and DAWs.

Move and Groove, Forward and Back
With 57 preset rhythms and seven different drum kits, the RC-5 is ready to elevate loop and practice sessions with inspiring grooves for any style. For each rhythm, A/B variations are available via external control to bring energy and interest to performances. The RC-5’s looper engine also includes a cool reverse function that’s great for infusing your music with fresh sonic colors.

Capture, Practice and Perform
The RC-5 provides 99 phrase memories, letting you store loops as fast as you create them. In addition to audio, a phrase memory includes the selected rhythm and kit, so it’s ready to go when you call it up. Loop audio can be backed up to a computer via USB. And with WAV import via BOSS Tone Studio, the RC-5 becomes a pedalboard playback hub for lesson material, jam tracks or backing music for your next gig.
