I've seen a lot of complaints about the RC-50 on
this list. Imo the issue is caused by the loop quantize feature and infact
it's documented in the 1.01 OS release notes. But if you carefully read the
release notes the workaround is not to use the rhythmn mode. Let's first
take a good look at the release notes.
* Priority Given to Rhythm (Factory Default)
This preserves the performance rhythm from the time
that recording started.
When you operate the pedal, the performance-start
location is adjusted and playback is started accordingly. Although it may
sometimes sound as if playback has started from the middle of a phrase, from
the following loop, playback takes place as recorded.
* Priority Given to Sound *
This starts playback from the beginning of the
Note, however, that for the rhythm guide, recorded
phrases, or recordings synchronized with MIDI, playback starts with “Rhythm
What you have to do is this:
- put your RC-50 in Sound Priority mode (see
release notes for details)
- do NOT use the Rhythm guide; this will turn the
loop quantize feature on and causes the gap
Btw: I've tested the issue 25 times today and imo
above procedure avoids the problem. I hope this helps :)
