Re: Short review of the Boss RC-20

Glad to hear your  comments and I concur with your point of view.
I purchased mine at the same time as the Repeater. At that time there was 
a lot
of issues to address regarding the the Repeater. I did not get into the 
for for some time. When I got around to it I was delighted.
It is not full featured as some of the more expensive items out there, but 
love it!
I use it as a studio aid in the Looping and efx section of my studio, 
feeding it samples from a laptop. The RC-20 allows me to record a silent 
of a good period of time and the allows me to work all the Trks in overdub
mode. It does have a limited functionality, however it's simplicity is 
At this price you cannot beat it.
