Re: roland rc-505

Like the Korg Microsampler (which is missing a pitch wheel), it looks like they didn't bother talking to anyone in their core audience, and once again assumed that all looping musicians are beatboxers.

Unless it's one of the on-board fx, the lack of a pitch/time knob on this is kind of a dealbreaker for me.

Other than that, it looks somewhat foot-friendly, even though it's intended to be a hand-pedal. A bare foot or socked foot could probably operate the start/stop controls and volume knobs.

i'll have to read the specs more closely. but this looks promising.
i just wish there was a SPEED KNOB to adjust the speed of the loop. that would be AWESOME!
but i guess the 5 loops and that it's hand operated, for me makes it interesting....
wonder what the price will be?
probably out of my range for now....i'm sure...
oh well...nice to see something new put out...
