Boasting high-quality 44.1 kHz/32-bit sampling and nine footswitches the Boss RC-600 Loop Station faithfully preserves your tone while opening up a host of new possibilities for guitarists. Players are able to capture and play back six stereo WAV tracks, while a substantial bank of quality effects along with a wide variety of rhythms offers further creative scope.
Advanced analog connectivity includes 2 balanced XLR inputs with phantom power and 2 stereo (dual TS ¼-inch) instrument input sections with selectable 1M/25K ohms impedance. Similarly, the Main Output and 2 Sub Output sections each comprise dual TS ¼-inch jacks (left side mono). Further footswitch and/or expression pedal control is available via 2 separate TRS ¼-inch jacks while a handy headphone output (TRS ¼-inch) has also been included.
On the digital side, the Boss RC-600 Loop Station features MIDI in and out, along with USB connectivity for WAV transfer, data backup, DAW integration etc.
