Re: RC-50


I don't post here very much, but let me just say that I have learned  
a lot about the craft of looping here. Mucho respect to all the  
master loopers on the list.

my band almost always just makes up songs on the fly and we hardly  
ever do anything in our set without the RC-50.
I would say that the whole gig is based around that box... that being  
said, I don't want it to seem that way.
I don't want the band to be about the technology. It's just part of  
what we do to make our music.

I have a mixer with 2 different vocal mics (one is a cb mic with echo  
on it) and a toy keyboard plugged into the left side of the RC_50 and  
my guitar pedalboard output plugged into the right. The right side  
SUB output goes to a PA and the left side SUB output first goes into  
an on/off switch then into a gtr amp. This way it's like having 2  
mono RC-50s in one box. I can freely mute the output of the vocal or  
gtr sides independently. After my pedalboard and before the RC-50 I  
have an A/B/Y switch. A goes to the RC-50 and B goes to my live gtr  
amp. With that swicth I can control what is going into the RC-50 from  
my gtr.

I never listen to the guide track through the PA, only in headphones.  
The drummer and I both have headphones on (I have one ipod head phone  
and he has these cheapo panasonic ones that clip behind the ear, so  
he can hear the band and the guide track.)

I have 2 blank patches, one for multi mode and one for single mode,  
ready to go.
I sometimes hold the mic over his snare drum to get that in the loop.
I use the reverse functions a lot.
I have 2 FC-6 control pedals hooked up for extra buttons. I use  
"clear" "reverse" and program up and down
I reprogrammed the undo switch on the RC-50 to be ALL start and stop.
I have a master stereo volume pedal across the outputs of the RC-50.
I do a lot of dub remix type activity using a line 6 verbzilla that I  
have after the mixer side, before the PA.

we mainly improvise funny, funky gtr trio music. Sometimes I sing a  

that's about it. if you're in NYC, come see us. We play at  
nightingale Lounge on 2nd and 13th every Thursday.
