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.

Really nice product!!
zokiDkizo, 31.01.2020
I cannot say anything negative for this nice looper. I am using it with my Korg Krome and MicroKorg keyboards and hand-touch loop station is just perfect for me because I can have all off this at one table together and also for playing outside, live private party, on stands. Finnaly I can record faster my ideas than on mobile phone recorder "track by track". When the idea hits you, it's going away fast so this looper make you faster. That was the 1st reason why I have bought it. The rest is just plus, plus and plus. Thank you very much people from Thomann, will keep ordering from you.
Stay cool and have fun!!

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