In this excerpt from a Dub FX interview, Dub FX discusses why he likes the Boss RC-50 Loop Station Looper Pedal. He originally started with the Akai Headrush pedal as a looper pedal, and a Boss GT-6 guitar pedal for effects, before making the switch to the RC-50.

For those awaiting the arrival of the ultimate looper, the wait is finally over. Introducing the RC-50 — the most feature-laden Loop Station BOSS has ever built. It’s the best live looping tool ever built for that matter. Housed in a spacious seven-footswitch floor unit, the RC-50 lets you manipulate three stereo phrase tracks simultaneously. Each track supports multiple overdubs, so phrases can be stacked one by one on each track, resulting in a monstrous layer of looped phrases.
Loops for days. And days for loops! I've never really mastered the whole loop thing, and since there seems to be a slight (few millisecond) delay between the loop start/stop with this pedal (or my timing is slightly off, could be that, I won't front), that's made it a bit harder on me to get used to looping.
Still, this thing, when you do get it going, it goes and goes and goes! You can do all kinds of crazy things with it! Got a drum pad set? Play some drums, then loop a bass line over it, then play your guitar and sing. You're a one person band! Don't have drums? No problem! Use your acoustic guitar as a drum set! Bang on the body for the drums, use the strings as a snare and cymbals!
The possibilities are endless with this station. And with the new ones?
Dude, just go get one. Or the new ones. Or the RC-1. Or just SOMETHING that's got a looper built with it.
The RC-50 was the best looper of it's kind when it was released, but did not quite hit perfection (the RC-505 hit perfection). 3 phrase loops, some great features, and a looper that has been used joyfully by many a performer, but had some shortcomings that have been almost completely remedied in the 505.
