Re: Boss RC-20

the rc-20 is a nice tool although the sampling rate is
lower than 44.1.  i read somewhere that it's in the mid
30's although no one really knows.  

being able to erase the entire loop with your foot
without stopping is nice.  

Matthias spent only an hour reconfiguring mine so it
can send a sync signal out.  my phrase jack is being
used for this purpose now.  

but since i've been using the repeater i haven't even
touched the rc-20.

it's a different class of looping and mixing.  
the repeater is where loopers meet dj's.
hybrid on down. . .
