Hi, Steve here from Mega Music and today we are talking about the Boss RC1 Loop Station. What does a loop station do? Well you can play a section of music and the Loop Station will play it back to you. Then you can layer numerous 'loops' on top of one another. So you can be your own band. One really great way to use a Loop Station RC1 is to solo over your own playing. So you lay down a chord progression and then you play a solo over the top of it. (Demonstration) Another way to use a Loop Station is to become your own band. You can lay down rhythms, chords and tunes then sing over the top of it for example. You can create full band experience just yourself. The Boss RC1 is the simplest model of Loop Station. You can be up and running with this in five minutes and I think it's perfect for practicing your solo playing. If you'd like to expand on your loop playing then Boss have a whole range of Loop Stations that allow you to play rhythms, use more memory and have some fantastic extra sounds. So come and check out either the RC1 to get you on your way, or any of the other great Boss pedals we have here at Mega Music.
