Although most loopers sit on the floor like stompboxes, the RC-505 is a tabletop unit, which leaves the unit feeling altogether small and borderline flimsy in comparison to the beefcake units you’d ordinarily get for the price. The RC-505 offers unlimited overdubs and can store as many as 99 5-track stereo recordings. Weighing just over three pounds and measuring 16 and a half by 8 and a third inches, it’s pretty unassuming for a looper with the power to support five independent tracks.
According to several user reviews, the Boss RC-505 has some axcess of the features such as intuitive controls; helpful features like Loop Quantize and plenty of effects ensure that this table-top; hand-operated unit has ample to offer vocalists. But for guitarists, the difficulty in hands-free control really limits what the pedal offers. So I think this pedal is less suitable for the guitarist.
