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

dear Jeff,

I did not mean to invalidate your very strong opinion on the RC-50.
I happen to disagree with everything you said about it, but I do agree that was released with some shortcomings.
Mine is not the only opinion that matters, I value yours too.
I just can't stand it when someone comes on a forum of very smart and reasonable people and spouts an opinion in the form of an absolute emotional outburst like you did.
It's not helpful to the tone of the discussion.

For me, the RC-50 is the only one that does what I need.
So, naturally, in the discussion of our tools on this forum, I would like to share that information with others.
If that makes you think I am some kind of novice or idiot for using it I don't see that as relevant to the discussion and it is offensive.
If you need to release your pent up anger on the group or on a tool of the trade that's equally unproductive and does not add to the discussion.

I assume from your previous posts that you'll probably turn this around again and try to make me look like the dick here since I have an opinion about a looper that doesn't go with yours, but I hope I am wrong and we can move on with the discussion without so much heat. It's just looping after all... why get so upset about it?

Dear Jeff-
I don't believe Mr. Killian was attempting to tell you what to say, only offering a different opinion.
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,(<---BS Alert) which is a great looper for sure.<----(opinion alert, but don't dare speak your convictions or you too could be the next "hot headed and out of control person termed a "dick")
I don't know if you actually tried one in real life but... (yep, I own one, a repeater, a boomerang, etc)
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.
too late. I simply could not believe the ineptitude of the device's obvious premature release. In short, it sucks when it comes to a FLOOR CONTROLLED LOOPER which it and the Boomerang both most certainly are.
but don't come on here and spout hateful propoganda like this.<---someone needs to learn what PROPAGANDA means, me thinks.
Sure sounds like a pompous "tell me what to say" statement to me.
different loopers work in different situations. period.<--obviously you have a PHD in looping. I am in way over my head here.lol!
 get used to it. <----I think you just need to get used to the fact that your's is NOT the only opinion that matters pal.
the RC-50 is a great looper for a certain way of looping.
