Re: Some RC-20 Questions

I have an RC-20. I've found it very easy to play live, but the cycling 
between phrases is useless. From what I've heard the rang would be a 
better investment, but I couldn't afford it OR the real estate on the

when the current phrase ends, the next one kicks in automatically.

One at a time. It cycles from 1 to 10 and stops.

No undos or anything, and if you want to save a loop, you have to write it 
to memory or it's lost. I use it live only for a one-shot effect or using 
the current loop only. Also the 5:30 of memory is divided between the 11 
phrases, not 5:30 for each phrase. So I found that pretty disappointing 
too. Nice unit though, good bang for the buck.
