Re: Short review of the Boss RC-20
With the ARSY-20, i tried active and passive basses.
I plugged straight into it, then to the amp.
and tried the different levels, of the instrument level
and level, funnily enough.
the hiss was on only the play back of the loop.
the loop lacked top end.
The pre recorded loops, that are on the thing sounded fine.
If i recorded a loopwhere, the notes sarted and stopped,
the hiss stopped in between the notes, so it was only on the
notes. catch me. I'm mean, this is what i found, it may be
complete different story for some of guys, this is [just] one
guys opinion. thank you good night.
