Re: I now "get" the RC-50.
I understand where you're coming from. But in the situation I outlined, it works great. Nobodys time is perfect that the loop is flawless. A drummer playing in time will always drift a little. Even if you are that perfect, you will never hit every loop all night at a gig.
But yes, for solo stuff the RC-50 has its issues.

The RC-50 is the biggest waste of money I have ever made the mistake of investing in. It's cumbersome to say the least in that it's LOADED with useless features. The guide is the most inept feature of all. If you can't keep time with your foot you have no business looping. I always wanted, and had even wrote and suggested the product 10 years ago, a multiple master stereo version of the good old (noisy as hell) Boomerang which IS the only decent floor looper ever made. What a waste of technology and more directly, efficiency.
