tc new looper pedal (polytune mini size)
i think i am going to buy it hehe
Finally a simple looper. Great if you can deal with less features than the Boss RC series or JamMan.
It has an undo feature, which is a must for me!
I bought the Boss RC-20XL 2nd hand and it was the best buy I ever did.
Excellent practice tool: record some chords, then start practicing soloing over those chords (jazz guitar).
Some features the RC-20 has and that you might want to consider too:
- Autostart when sound is heard (never use it)
- Tempo adjust of recorded loop with pitch intact (handy sometimes, but no must)
- Built-in basic drum machine / metronome -> very handy for practising timing on bass!
- RC20 can save loops. Is nice.
- The RC-20 has two pedals, which allows you to stop the loop and restart it at will. I can't imagine this will be possible with the TC, but although I haven't really used this (not using this live) I can imagine it can be quite handy when performing to stop the loop and then resume it later in the song.
- RC20 has some effects you can apply on tracks, but never use those.
All in all this seems like a great basic looper with undo!
Wonder for how much this will sell!
Edit: The Boss RC-3 essentially does everything I want, including undo and stop/start with 3 hours of memory and USB-interface. Sells for 200€ (that's probably around 200GBP too).
You might want to consider saving for the more advanced Boss (main features: saving loops + 3 hours of memory), but if this thing sells for 105 GBP as mentioned on that page, this is a great deal!
OK, I want one...
behndy's having a geargasm somewhere right now :D
That looks really cool. Beats getting a TC flashback if you're not gonna use the delay part of it. Hope it won't be too pricey though.
Too pricey? Did you watch the video? You can't afford not to check it out ;)
Nice, but at that money you can probably get a Jamman Solo at ebay.
Also, lol at the video:
"We've taken away all the unecessary features... drum machines , Sd card slots,..."
And keeps on going about how they removed , stripped , etc.
Yeah ,they first built a super pedal and then strip it down?
Or did they remove features, the same way fiat "removed" airbags, air conditioning, 3000 cc of engine and 500 hp from my seicento?
I was interested but at $170-200...eeeeh notsomuch.
170 really? I was thinking of building a dual looper set up... I was already eyeing the jamman because of the ability to sync both pedals despite of its location. But having that small size might benefit me actually. Hmmm...
170?? No doubt I would go for the RC-3 or the Flashback and get tons of delays and effects. To all the pros that DIETER has listed, I would add that you can record your jams or spontaneous riffs save them.
I would pay ~70USD max for this one.
Tore from TC said it would be available in the U.S. in late March and the price will be $129.99 MAP.
Graphic outlining the functions:
And full info on the TC site:
I fully understand people who want all the additional features of the Boss, but this is much closer to what I want. Personally I'd rather have two foot switches for greater usability, but obviously TC was going for a minimal footprint.
I'm thinking I'll pick one of these up.
I like that $129.99 price much better.
Crap. I did not need to see that!
I guess you are paying for the size, it seems a good pedal but way overpriced.
So is this in essence the looper that's built into the flashback?
Tore was talking up the recording quality but I don't know if it's an upgrade from the Flashback or not.
5 minutes is waaaay more than anyone should need for a single loop- who's going to want to sit around for a song that's at minimum 10 minutes?
I've got a Flashback around here and the audio quality is fine, FWIW.
For me it's more about the Undo/Redo. That and having a dedicated looper rather than a pair of Flashbacks with one always set to looper.
In fact I'll probably opt for a tap tempo delay and this looper to replace my Flashback if I don't hold onto the X4 I currently have.
