AW: RC50

Hi there,

you hear this gap only the first time you are recording the loop. If you
play a loop for 2 bars for example. I will record the first 2 bars then 
play along 2 bars more. So nobody notices. I can live with that.

The timing is perfectly in time. Also it happens just with the very first
track. Track 2 und 3 or overdubbing are not affected.

I am still not really happy with this thing cause the promised time
stretching just isnt't usable. Also the MIDI Clock (when receiving) has 
problems. I think I finally will keep my RC-20 and a notebook with Mobius 
maxMSP to my setup.

The RC-50 in my opinion is pretty hard to use when playing in a loop
situation with other persons. I can explain why actually. It is just that I
don’t feel at home with this device.

Greetings Jens

I don't remember... but there have been a lot of discussion on this.  
If you search the archive you may find something.

Just stuff it away on stage. You don't have to watch the screen just  
because there is a screen on the box. If you patch up some midi  
pedals for the function you want you know what will happen when  
stepping a certain pedal - without the screen support.
