Whether for use onstage or at home, the RC-20XL will allow you to layer phrases in real time as many stacks as you like until you fill up the 16 minutes of ample recording space on the RC-20XL.

Footswitchable loop select (with optional FS-5U/FS-6)

The RC-20XL inherits the same “hands-free” pedal operation from the RC-20: Record, Play, and Overdub can be done with the left pedal , all the while your hands are free to play your instruments. But now you get approximately 16 minutes of recording time to capture and store loops or one-shot phrases (three times that of the RC-20), and you can work your way backward thanks to the new Undo function, a necessity when making mistakes during overdub.

Performance Tools
The RC-20XL has 11 memory tracks, in which you have the choice of storing either one-shot phrases or loop phrases. During your performance, you can switch between the tracks with an optional FS-6 Dual Footswitch, or two FS-5U footswitches (momentary-type). The Undo function can be a useful and musical function for erasing your previous phrase and instantly layering a new one. When you hit the pedal, you can either immediately stop the playback, let the phrase play until the end, or fade it out.
