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

Hi guys,

I used th RC-50 for 2 days at home and one session. I bought the RC-50

- I wanted to play in sync with the drummer
- Tap the tempo of the loop with my foot and use the time strech feature of
the RC-50

The RC-50 runs out of sync and the time stretch function sounds horrible. 
I have to admit it is really nice to have 3 loops available. It is not a 
device at all.

For what I wanted it to do it just didn't make sense. I am just using my
RC-20 now cause it is very intuitive in a live setup. For the synced loop
stuff I am going to use Mobius in the future. This is really what I have
been looking for all the time. 

If the unit would have been cheaper I could have lived with those "bugs". 

My recommendation is. Either get something like a RC-20 or Boomerang for
live looping or a nice software looper for complex things.

Greetings Jens

I broke down and bought an rc-50 about 4 months ago and am very happy  
with it. I use it for my "stripped down" gigs where I have a small amp  
(a schertler David) my guitar and the hammered dulcimer. I run the  
insert from the amp to the rc-50 and it's a very acceptable setup.  
When I need a more complex setup I haul out the rackmount computer and  
run Mobius through Bidule so that I can capture some of those more  
ambient vst effects. Of course I'm not using the built in drum  
machine, not trying to sync with anything else. Once I discovered how  
simulate some feedback control for the overdubbing, it was brilliant!!  
It does everything I need it to and some more. Personally I would and  
do recomend it to someone looking to get into looping, it just  
requires some analysis as to what your needs are.
