Amazing Toy
FluffyPuff, 15.12.2018
Right out of the box the RC-505 felt surprisingly like a poor quality device. Cheap plastic housing and sketchy faders were definitely a big turn off at first, but I still decided to keep it due to the vast array of easy to learn features which are just absolutely amazing.
I loved how fast I was able to put down my ideas with nearly endless combinations of effects without limitations in loop length and addable overdub layers. It was awesome how easily I could just let my inspiration flow intuitively without using a computer, which is very important for me creatively. Well, now 5 years of heavy use have passed and my loopstation is pretty much useless with one broken fader, 3 input FX buttons dont respond anymore and worst of all the internal amp has grown very noisy to a point where I cant use it for my live performances anymore. The mic and inst gain knobs (tried to clean them) make loud popping noises that make me fear for my speaker every time I touch them. Overall I still think the investment was worth it, I dont think that it ever was suitable for serious studio use but I also haven't seen anything as flexible as this from similar products. I travelled around the world with this thing and had a great time jamming with various artists. Hopefully the next modell will be more heavy duty like the rc-300.

Perfect, but impossible to sync with FL
Ottavio, 30.01.2018
I tried in every possible manner to sync the BOSS RC-505 (slave) with my DAW software, but with no results. After 3 minutes or 4 (depending on the bpm you set up) you can hear that the BOSS RC-505 gets slightly faster off tempo, and of course, the more you let it go, the more you hear the sync problem.

I didn't have any other problem beside this, the product works perfect and does what it promises to do. I had no problem looping on my own but for a price this big, having an issue with external synchronization means it's a little bit off price.

TLDR:
If you are planning to go solo, go for it, but if you are planning to do jam sessions with it and syncing with external software , you better go for another product.

DJing has rather murky origins, and there are many people who claim to have been the first to mix two records together.
