Record, Layer, Loop, & Store
The RC-2 can record and store up to 16 mono minutes of audio, either from your own instrument or other external input devices, such as MP3 players/recorders. Each of your layered loop creations can be stored to one of 11 internal patch preset locations.

Feature Rich
It records, layers, and loops, but the RC-2 also provides a wealth of other handy and powerful features, such as a jam-along Rhythm Guide, Auto Start, Tap Tempo, Loop Quantize, and Undo/Redo.

Friendly Operation
In traditional BOSS fashion, the RC-2 benefits from a clean and friendly user interface. As powerful as this little Loop Station is, it’s a dream to operate. Thanks to its clearly labeled buttons and knobs, the RC-2 puts everything directly under your fingertips, with no hidden menus or commands to impede the creative process.

Pedalboard Ready
Thousands of guitarists rely on BOSS’ ultra convenient BCB-series pedalboards for organizing their effects pedals. Due to its standard compact-pedal shape and size, the RC-2 fits perfectly alongside other BOSS pedals. Great for fast setup and convenient transportation.

Meet the Family
Thanks to the RC-2, there’s now a BOSS Loop Station for every size and budget. With the super-deluxe RC-50 at the top of the line, and the twin-size RC-20XL in the middle of the range, the RC-2 represents the most compact and affordable Loop Station.
