Re: I now "get" the RC-50.

Just so people searching the web for looping tool ideas don't get the wrong idea about the RC-50 from an obviously hot headed and out of control person...

The RC-50 is a totally different animal from the Boomerang, which is a great looper for sure.
I don't know if you actually tried one in real life but...
for me... it's a pretty good solution to how I want to loop funky bits and have a drummer play along with me. 
I use the guide extensively as a way for my drummer to have a click track so my loops don't have to act as one.
there's nothing less funky than having one of your loops be stiff so the drummer can follow it.
with the guide I can play as swampy and slinky as I want to and the drummer still has something stiff to follow so the whole band sounds right.
I use other loopers for pitch/reverse/ambient stuff.
the RC-50 is just a great collector of things to loop and turn on and off.

If you don't like it, don't buy it. but don't come on here and spout hateful propoganda like this.
different loopers work in different situations. period. get used to it.
the RC-50 is a great looper for a certain way of looping.

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.
