I saw it at NAMM. Rico Loop demo-ed it for me... but he really knew very little about the specifics and he didn't seem to want to discuss anything with me.
it's interesting. I like the 3 separate stop/record/play thing... no more selecting...
the effects seem interesting, although, no reverb... but you can choose pre loop or post loop efx, which can make for some interesting things, especially with the pitch function.
there's still no real click track sound and the guide track is still not pannable so you still lose 2 outputs if you're using the click to send to a drummer. I guess I didn't complain loud enough about those things previously.
no more tap tempo button.... weird. So you have to have an external tap tempo if you want to do that.
the exp pedal seems pretty useless. on the rc50 I am able to use an external midi pedal to control the 'selected' loop's volume, which is VERY handy... but now, there's no more selection, so that's gone...
no one knows if it syncs better to other devices or if the midi clock output is actually stable now. I tried to send midi clock to a boss metronome from my rc50 and the metronome couldn't follow it, too unstable... wow... geniuses
I don't think I'm going to run out and buy one any time soon, but I would like to mess with it more.
the new pigtronix looper seems really cool and different.
I know a lot of people who bought an RC300 hoping it would be a lot better than the rc-50 and then sold it cause it wasn't enough of an improvement over the RC-50.
by a lot I mean 3...
