Re: Short review of the Boss RC-20

What did you guy's think of the hiss on the created loop.
it realy turned me off the whole thing,
I would'nt be supprised if the sample rate was far below
the headrush,  and the headrush is great for quick results
and has an undo funtion. a great live tool.
As with the ARSY-20
that thing is $850 in australia, what a waste of money!
Obviously every one is very different from one another.
