More musical noodling from yours truly…
Daft little workout just to test a new two camera set-up I’m thinking of working with for my next project.
You can download the tune from here: https://soundcloud.com/vrooom/24-05-13-improvisation
The Boss RC-300 is the latest addition to the Loopstation range and supersedes the RC-50. The main differences between this and its predecessor is the inclusion of in-built audio FX, a large footpedal and a whopping 3 hours of stereo looping time. While the unit is fundamentally a beefed-up RC-50, the improvements implemented by Boss are minimal and some may find them not very useful at all. The in-built FX are hardly inspiring and it is a real pain to edit them. I cannot see how I would use them in my performances.
The way the three stereo loop tracks have been laid out on the front panel is an improvement, though the inclusion of three mini-slider to control the volume of each track is a nice addition, it is almost impossible to pull off smooth volume changes with them thanks to a latch at the centre position.
Other than that, the RC-300 is the “Rolls Royce” of Loopstations and looping pedals and the looper is spoilt with the depth of features. However, if you have an RC-50, there’s not that much here to warrant an upgrade – unless you can get a good price for your RC-50 on eBay first!
Now watch my video review of this unit.
I took delivery of my latest looping pedal (don’t worry, I sold my old one) and this was the first ambient noodle to burst forth from the audio slurry. Generally been well received on the YouTube, so at least I know I am pointing in the right direction.
I took delivery of the new Boss RC-300 today and this is me opening the box and having the first shufty at the new Loopstation pedal. Check back to see some demos of this unit in the next few days or so.
This song is based on a riff from my previous improvisation. Not sure if it is much good, but I was videoing my recording process as I went, so it ended up being more about making a video than recording a decent song.
